Schulz, hereby resign from my role as member of the Board of Directors of The Document Foundation, effective November 1st, 2013. For business reasons and in the light of the upcoming elections, with new contributors in charge soon, I feel this is the right time to announce my resignation. While I fully intend to stay and remain active within the project, my resignation also means I will not be available as candidate for the upcoming board elections.on behalf of the community and the foundation, I would like to thank you for all you have done for LibreOffice! You have been one of the founding fathers of the foundation, you have shaped it, and you have greatly contributed to make it what it is today. Thank you truly for everything you did, we wouldn't be where we are today without you!
First, let me join Florian in thanking Charles for all his work, not only on the Board of Directors, but also in bringing both LibreOffice and The Document Foundation into existence. I joined the LibreOffice project six months after its birth and can not possibly imagine how frantic the early days have been.
Our statutes foresee in such cases that the first deputy is promoted to a member of the Board of Directors. It is my duty and honour to now ask you, Björn Michaelsen, if you accept your promotion to being member of Board of Directors of The Document Foundation, effective November 1st, 2013.
I accept the promotion to being a member of the Board of Directors of The Document Foundation and will start my duty as such on November 1st, 2013. As I have not been directly elected into this role -- being elected as a Deputy Member only so far -- it comforts me that I will have to confirm the trust invested in me soon in the upcoming elections. Best, Bjoern Michaelsen -- Björn Michaelsen Deputy Member, Board of Directors, The Document Foundation, Kurfürstendamm 188, 10707 Berlin Gemeinnützige rechtsfähige Stiftung des bürgerlichen Rechts Legal details: http://www.documentfoundation.org/imprint
