Congratulations to both Patricio and Alice on being selected, I look forward to 
working with you! 

And I would also like to take the opportunity to thank both Arne and Phoebe. 
Both have proven that having many diverse views on the board is a tremendous 
advantage and I really enjoyed working with them. As volunteers they have given 
a lot of time and energy in the past years. Just like a lot of us on a 
"wikibreak" this is not a goodbye, this is probably a "see you later" on one of 
the projects, Wikimania or a future committee :) 

Thanks to everyone involved in the selection process, and especially Béria for 
all the coordination :)
