YES, understood about the need for Board approval. Apologies for the
twitter exuberance; as you know it was a long and strenuous process and we
were relieved and joyful to get the Selection Committee's endorsement. As
appropriate, I am happy to clarify by twitter that we've received the
"selection committee recommendation" and await "board approval."

Thanks again, and apologies for the premature announcement.
