We would like to thank Helmut Hummel for his leadership of the security team since 2009. The nearly ten years of passionate contribution was only briefly interrupted, when he was release manager for TYPO3 v6.0 around 2012. We wish Helmut all the best for the future and hope he will soon find new and challenging contribution options elsewhere in our community.
