Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Would you like to be the new chair of AOO ?
Date Sun, 16 Aug 2015 06:47:13 GMT
Hi.

Today is end of nominations, we have received 1 nomination and Dennis has
accepted the nomination.

I do not see a need for a further discussion period, since the last entry
on this thread was 13 days ago (not counting the private mails I have
received).

I will start the VOTE Thread shortly.
