+1 for Jody!

I had the opportunity to work together with Jody in the board and
everything Cameron describes is true, and even more.
Jody is a hard worker and is specially taking care for the developers of
FOSS communities.

I am pleased he is willing accept another term to serve the community!

Warm regards,
