Ryan Dahl steps down from Node.js leadership
Dahl has been working for three years on Node.js and is moving on to work on research projects. Schlueter's initial goals will be to improve the "third party module system experience" with a new web site for module browsing, a new addon build system and the addition of binary installation support to npm which, given that Schlueter was the creator of the npm package manager and registry, makes him ideally qualified for the task. Dahl says he will be advising from the sidelines, but that Schlueter now has final say as to what makes it into Node.js releases.
