I'm happy to announce that Rex Dieter has accepted an appointment to the 
remaining seat on the Fedora Project Board.  This is the second 
appointment of two in total for this upcoming cycle; Major Hayden was 
previously announced as the first appointee for this cycle.

Many of you know Rex from various areas of the project, including his 
work within the KDE SIG, initiation of the Community Working Group 
(CWG), as well as his service as former elected Board Member, among 
many, many other areas. Rex has proven himself to be fair, wise, and 
adept in resolving conflicts, and I very much look forward to working 
with him again.

I hope that everyone in the Fedora Project community will join me in 
welcoming him (back) to the Board.

The new Board will meet together for the first time (hopefully) in some 
form this week likely during FUDCon, though given that not all members 
will be present this may be a hybrid of an in-person and phone and IRC 
meeting, and we'll do our best to try and work around schedules but will 
likely not be perfectly inclusive. :) Regular meetings should resume 
next week, once a new meeting time has been finalized.

Finally, I'd like to thank our outgoing Board members for their time and 
efforts over the past year. Toshio Kuratomi, David Nalley, Christoph 
Wickert - your wisdom and contributions are appreciated by everyone, and 
we all look forward to continuing to work with you in other areas of the 
Fedora Project.
