If someone is responsible, he will find a replacement before leaving. We
have seen this in case of kde-india, when the original founder of kde-india
wanted to quit, he transferred the responsibilities to current team. Forcing
someone to find a replacement is rude and it is not part of the licensing
conditions. When you allow anyone to join the contribution party, you have
to allow anyone to walk away too. What you can do at most is to address the
concerns (if the concerns are fair enough) of the person who plans to go.
