As many of you know, Zeeshan Ali recently stepped down from the GNOME
Foundation Board. As a result, we've had a place on the Board to fill. In
these situations, the bylaws  state that the Board of Directors may
choose a replacement of their choosing .
After accepting nominations from the community , and conducting an
internal voting process, we are very happy to announce that Didier Roche
will be joining us with immediate effect. Didier Roche is part of the
Ubuntu desktop team at Canonical and has been very helpful with recent
GNOME community efforts to help with the Ubuntu migration. He is proactive,
friendly, and we think he will make an excellent addition to the Board.
Welcome Didier, and thank you for accepting this position! We look forward
to working together in the months ahead.
On behalf of the GNOME Board of Directors,
 "Vacancies on the Board may be filled by a majority of the
Directors then in office, whether or not less than quorum, or by a
sole remaining Director." (GNOME Foundation Bylaws, section 8.4.4)
