Hi Fae,

Wikimedia Deutschland is thankful for Markus' election, and we will
support him as best as we can in his future endeavours.

But this email is more to you Fae. I wanted to thank you for the work
done on the WCA so far. I know it hasn't been easy on you.
Nevertheless you kept going forward, pushing and prodding and making
sure things would happen, with sometimes great critic, other times
hopefully great support. For this I am thankful. Sometimes politics is
ungrateful to the hard working, and I am sorry it came to this, but I
applaud how you managed all possible situations, and especially how
you made sure that the WCA and the spirit of chapters working together
live on. I strongly believe that Wikimedia's diversity is one of its
biggest strengths, and I am convinced that working towards
sustainability of chapters definitely is one way to make sure this
diversity lives on.

I look forward to working with you on all the tasks still to
accomplish, within or outside the WCA.
