Hi All,

I would also like to give my thanks to Mary for her time on the
council. She has done an outstanding job with regards to her work on
the constitution and getting the LA Newsletters out the door (I wish
she was still around to do the next one!).

Mary has been an invaluable member of the council and we will miss
her. I wish her all the best in her work with the Ada Initiative,
where I think that she will make an even greater contribution to the
wider Open Source community.

President, Linux Australia
