GNOME Foundation Elections - Preliminary results

The GNOME Foundation Membership & Elections Committee is pleased to
announce the preliminary results for the Board of Directors.

Special thanks go to Jonathan Blandford and Greg Leblanc who helped us
find and work around some bugs caused by an old perl module.

We strongly encourage everyone to look at the detailed results to
verify their ballot. You can also run the software used to count the
results to verify that these preliminary results are valid.

These results can be challenged by sending an e-mail to
elections gnome org  The challenges have to be sent before Friday,
December 19, 2003, 23:59 UTC. Please note that these results should not
be considered final until any such challenges have been resolved.

[*] Per the Foundation's charter, no more than 40% of the board
directors may share a corporate affiliation. There is 11 directors, so
this means that no more than 4 directors may share a corporate
affiliation. Michael is the fifth-leading vote-getter from Novell Inc.,
and is thus ineligible to be elected.

      Owen Taylor

Some figures about the votes: there were 337 registered voters. 191
voters sent valid ballots. Two ballots were invalidated because the
