In accordance with the recent board decision to increase the number of
ombudsmen from 3 to 5, we have appointed the following users as
[[User:Schiste]] from frwiki
[[User:PatríciaR]] from commonswiki
[[User:Tinz]] from dewiki
[[User:Sam Korn]] from enwiki
[[User:Shizhao]] from zhwiki
Please join me in thanking Rebecca, Mackensen, and Hei ber for their
willingness to take on this commitment over the course of the last year.
Thanks to the three former ombudsmen, and congratulations of the
appointments of these five people. Excellent choices, and I'm pleased to see
more of a variety of projects involved, instead of mostly from enwiki.
