Dear Community,

I am deeply touched by your trust. I thank you from the bottom of my
heart for your votes. I never took my election for granted and the score
you gave me is having me to stand with open mouth not really knowing
what to say.

You cannot even imagine what your support means for me in this
particular period of my relationship with the project. I am humbled by
your support. I pray that I will be always able to keep the good of the
project as such as the top priority in every decision we will be brought
to take.

My thought goes to all those that did not cast their vote for me: I
thank you for casting your votes in this election and I hope you will be
satisfied with the action of this -- very diverse -- board.

To all those candidates that did not get elected this time: Please
accept the gratitude for your readiness to serve. You make a whole
difference in the project by your willingness to contribute and to face
the scrutiny of the community. LibreOffice would not be what it is
without you.

And I conclude with my best wishes in this joyous season for the
community as whole. May the year to come be your year of breakthrough in
domain where you need it, year of accomplishments, love and peace.

I love you all. Yes, I do! ;)

Dear members,

I hereby announce the final results of The Document Foundation's Board
of Directors elections 2013. With the challenging phase having ended
without any objection to the preliminary results, the following results
are now the final ones.

Elected as member are the candidates, in this order: Thorsten Behrens,
Eliane Domingos de Sousa, Michael Meeks, Fridrich Strba, Adam Fyne, Joel
Madero and Bjoern Michaelsen.
And as deputies: Andreas Mantke, Eike Rathke and Norbert Thiebaud.

I want to say thanks to _all_ those who ran for elections, also the
members that were not elected for the board this time, and
congratulations to those that were elected. By separate mail each one
elected, will be invited to accept the new role as Member (or Deputy) of
the Board of Directors.

As outlined in the initial announcement [1], the newly elected Board of
Directors will only be in charge from February 18, 2014 on. To help the
transition, the current Board of Directors will include them in the
decision making process.

On behalf of the Membership Committee,
Cor Nouws, Chairman
