Thanks, pairwise results will come (Mardetanha will hopefully publish them
soon unless I mistunderstood him).

I would like to apologize for the delays on our part, we understand that it
is frustrating to be sitting on the edge of the seat without knowing when
results arrive. Communication could definitely have been better.

As I wrote in the board report, I think the elections would benefit from a
semi-permanent committee, instead of an election-by-election-based
committee. This would help counter repeats of the same mistakes, and
smoothen things out. This year none of us were very technically-minded, and
we learned that we definitely should have someone who can take care of that
part as a committee member.

In the beginning there were only three volunteers, but after some asking
around we got two more (Matanya and Mardetanha), and there is a lot of work
to do, so more volunteers is always nice. (Not trying to be apologetic here,
there are many things we could have done better, and we should take
self-criticism on that; I'm just trying to explain some of the factors

Finally, congratulations to the winners! It is well-deserved. :-)
Oh, and we will put up a post-mortem page on Meta soon, and all feedback is
very welcome.
