Congratulations to Maria HÃ¤ll, Raymond Jetten, and Christian
Kaufmann on their election.
I'm not familiar with any of them, but a quick search suggests that
they are all eminently qualified.

Please don't forget the efforts of Ronald F. Guilmette.
I may not agree with RFG on various things, but I applaud the tenacity
he has always displayed, and the ability to instigate a 100+-message
flamefest on NANOG that so clearly demonstrated important qualities
about his target -- now archived in perpetuity.
Ronald, thanks for this public service. Electing qualified board
members to RIPE, etc., is important, especially in this era that sees
things like the .ORG/PIR/ICANN debacle.
I expect that it is also outside the charter of the list, but on the
other hand, it isn't clear that there's a better place. These things
are not operational or technical issues, but eventually do come to
have an impact on operations.
