Important News about Jim Parry and the Project

Hey CodeIgniter team! I wanted to login really quickly to comment on this unfortunate event.

I am very sorry to hear about Jim and I hope his family is doing as good as they can through these troubled times. For the little bit it is worth, I send my condolences their way. I hadn't interacted with him but very little on GitHub when he commented on my lack of GPG Signing my commits  Tongue

To Lonnie. You are the man Lonnie. I am unsure of how many times you get thanked for your amazing effort to spearhead CodeIgniter into the future, but you deserve more. You have literally (with a huge thanks to Jim of course) sparked the PHP communities interest in CodeIgniter once again, brought it into a modern and relevant light and are just simply an amazing individual with great commitment. Therefor, I myself as a continuing user and supporter of this great framework, can think of no better person to take the project lead. Well deserved Lonnie ... well deserved indeed.

As to the user docs and all of that. I will make it my solemn duty to go through them and weed out the discrepancies within them as well as the Docblocks/comments in the codebase as there are many, many errors there too that I personally have come across when combing through the framework. I have used CodeIgniter for a very long time and it has helped me tremendously so if this is the wish of the team that help is needed now maybe more than ever, the least I can do is contribute too in an environment that does not require extensive TDD before each commit.

RIP Jim and I know you're in a happier place. I hope I can be of some service to help get this up and running by the 24th of February. I will certainly try Smile
