Hello people of openSUSE after the longest election period in the history of the project elections ended in a successful way. 237 people voted out of 400 which is a record of participation both in percentage and in actual number. It was the first year we attempted to vote through Helios Voting System and we solved all problems that came to our attention. I must say that although the work of the election committee ends somewhere around here the new elected members have a long way ahead of them and us as the election committee wish them all the best. With no further delay I present you the results of the elections for 2018: Gertjan Lettink (Knurpht) 166 Simon Lees 133 Ana María Martínez 185 Gerry Makaro (Fraser_Bell) 98 Aaron Luna 72
The First three: Gertjan Lettink (Knurpht),Simon Lees and Ana María Martínez,will serve a two year term.
Best Regards Kostas "Warlordfff" Koudaras
I’d like to congratulate Ana for joining the board.
Although I’m not a voting member bu as along time use and supporter of (open)SuSE, and in the interests of diversity, could I ask for a breakdown of the voting membership and board by gender and racial origin. If the results are as I suspect, what are board’s plans for addressing this?
And don’t start with the nonsense about “unbiassed” and “meritocracy.”

First, 'racial origin'? What are you suggesting?
Second, and not the least: You have had the chance to become a voting member, we - the current Board - even have changed the membership conditions to make it more accessible for anyone contributing. You could even have stepped up and make yourself eligible for the Board.
Third: There has been a debate on IRC, widely announced, for which the elections were delayed. You, like anyone else, could have joined and ask this question there.
Last one: Does this diversity start by congratulating only one person, based on her gender or racial origin?
