Welcome to Alexandre Franke, new board member

Dear all,

As many of you will be aware, Christian Hergert 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].

As your elected representatives, the board has a responsibility to put
the best interests of the Foundation first, and to ensure that the
Foundation runs as effectively as possible. The board has spoken to a
number of people and reviewed the available candidates in order to
find the best person for the position.

We are very happy to announce that Alexandre Franke will be joining us
with immediate effect. Alexandre has a strong track record of getting
things done, not least for GUADEC and the localization team. His
enthusiasm and commitment to GNOME is well known. We think that he
will make an excellent addition to the board.

Welcome Alexandre, and thank you for agreeing to take on this
position!  We look forward to working together in the year ahead.

On behalf of the GNOME Board of Directors

Directors then in office, whether or not less than quorum, or by a
sole remaining Director." (GNOME Foundation Bylaws, section 8.4.4)
