Dear openSUSE community,

I had run for the Board after the request to do so. I was really happy to be
elected and be allowed to contribute there again.
I have to step down because of personal reasons.

I have many friends in this community. We will meet us again.


Thank you for your service, however brief it was!

As not much of the term has started since the vote was completed,
could the runner-up fill in Sarah's spot? That would be Vinzenz
Vietzke, based on the voting results[1].

Vinzenz, would you be willing to take up the spot if the Board would
like you to?

Under our election rules [1] the board may choose to appoint a candidate
to sit until the next election rather then holding fresh elections.
Given how recent Sarah's resignation was the board is yet to discuss it
but yes under our current rules the board could choose to appoint
Vinzenz to the board he would then have to run for election again the
next time elections are held. I suspect this will be an option that the
board will look at.
