Due to work constraints, I am not able to give enough time for Fedora.
I wish to thank you all for your support and help over the years. It
has been a very memorable experience.

I would like to leave with a poem on truth and change:
Truth was there at the beginning of the beginning
Truth was there at beginning of the beginning of the beginning
What was true alone was there
And truth has persisted through the ages
Let change do whatever it can truth alone remains
Change has sprung from truth
For there was nothing else than truth
And change is its offspring
Or perhaps change is truth and truth was change
Change was at the beginning
Change was what is past
Change is what is now
Change is what will be in times to come
Change is Truth
Truth is Change
I welcome truth in every breath
~ Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya
Hello there Fedorans :-)
The results for the FESCo and FAmSCo elections were publicly announced
earlier today in the link at the bottom of this e-mail. I would like to
formally congratulate and wish success to our fellow contributors Truong
Anh Tuan, Neville Cross and Jon Disnard for their successful running for
FAmSCo. This wasn't my time to have a chance, but I'd like to remember
everybody about something very important in the FLOSS community! Pretty
often there are many opportunities to contribute in very different ways. In
Fedora, this isn't different at all. If there's an opportunity, don't lose
it! And that's what I did. So I'm happy that I tried to have a seat in
FAmSCo and that I have met and talked to so many nice people on the way :-)
I'd like to heartily thank everybody who supported my candidature and also
those who convinced me it was worth trying. That makes me more inspired to
keep doing the work I have done and even more. I have sent a similar
message to the brazilian ambassadors mailing list showing how I feel happy
with the results. We still have two LATAM ambassadors in FAmSCo (Luiz Bazán
and Neville), and apart from that, Neville who just got elected has such a
long experience not only in Fedora but also in FAmSCo (3rd or 2nd time
elected). So I'm sure a nice work is going to be done, strengthening the
astonishing work Alejandro Perez has done.
Once again, thanks to everybody. It was a very nice experience running for
FAmSCo and it was awesome to get contacted by some people about it, to
discuss things with people I haven't had the chance yet and so on. I even
feel more Fedora today, for having experienced such a nice experience.
Success to FAmSCo and to its new elected contributors.
