WOW, WOW, WOW and WOW !! What a pleasant surprise !

I am very honoured by this nomination, and heartedly thank those who 
proposed me.

Member elections is a blind process for non-members, but I guess Stefano 
must be for something in this ;-)

In 3 years using Cocoon (I started in july 2000), and 2 years of 
committership (april 2001), I can say that Cocoon and Apache changed my 
life. Cocoon is everywhere in my work (since july 2000, when it was 
created, 95% of the projects made by my company are using it), and 
allowed me to know a lot of people that were first names on mailing 
lists, then friends on mailing lists, and now friends in real life and 
business partners.

My actual involvement isn't always what I would like it to be (I need 
some time for my wife and 2 sons and also for customer projects), but 
the passion is there, both for the project and its community, and I can 
assure you it will last.

Many thanks.
