take this opportunity to give our thanks to all the candidates. We, on
behalf of the community, appreciate the frank and honest debate. We further
thank all of the voters who participated in this election as well as the
developers, translators, and others who supported and promoted the election.

We further wish to thank Software in the Public Interest for hosting the
election website, and particularly Michael Schultheiss, Vice President, who
took responsibility for tallying and reporting the results to the Committee.
Without the support of both SPI and Michael this election would have been
much more difficult.
