Dear Tobias,

I believe you have the necessary experience from community side and
you are great as GNOME representative. This certainly I had reaffirmed
when I saw your participation in LinuxCon Brazil. Also I'm following
all your efforts in Europe to garantee that GNOME rocks!

Please keep your enthusiasm and looking for Latin America.

I wish you luck.

All my best,

Izabel Valverde
