Welcome to Didier Roche, new Board member!

Dear all,

As many of you know, Zeeshan Ali recently stepped down from the GNOME Foundation Board. As a result, we've had a place on the Board to fill. In these situations, the bylaws [1] state that the Board of Directors may choose a replacement of their choosing [2].

After accepting nominations from the community [3], and conducting an internal voting process, we are very happy to announce that Didier Roche will be joining us with immediate effect. Didier Roche is part of the Ubuntu desktop team at Canonical and has been very helpful with recent GNOME community efforts to help with the Ubuntu migration. He is proactive, friendly, and we think he will make an excellent addition to the Board.

Welcome Didier, and thank you for accepting this position! We look forward to working together in the months ahead.

On behalf of the GNOME Board of Directors,

sole remaining Director." (GNOME Foundation Bylaws, section 8.4.4)
