Best wishes in your new role, Bjorn.  And thanks for your hard work as our 
representative, in particular for improving the clarity of communication 
between the projects and EMO.

[] Bjorn Freeman-Benson resigns as your Committer 
Representative to the Board

It has been my privilege to represent the Committers on the Board this 
past year, and I have very much enjoyed working with you to encourage the 
Foundation in the right directions - directions that provide direct 
benefit to the Open Source Projects and to the committer and contributor 
community. One of the major agendas that John Wiegand and I have been 
pushing is to have the EMO dedicate more resources to directly supporting 
the Projects. Fortunately, the Board has agreed with us and as of February 
15th, the EMO will have a "Technical Director, Open Source Process and 
Infrastructure". John and I view this as a big positive step for Eclipse 
and for the Projects and are pleased.
The reason I am resigning as one of your two Committer Representatives and 
withdrawing my name from the upcoming Committer Representative Elections 
is that I am going to be that Technical Director, Open Source Process and 
Infrastructure. I am joining the EMO because I believe I can do more for 
the Committers and the rest of the community and the ecosystem in this new 
full-time (probably more than full-time!) role than I could as a part-time 
member of the Board.
I look forward to working with you all and doing what I can to help 
Eclipse become even bigger and even more amazing over the next year, two 
years, five years, and beyond. There's a lot coming up just in the short 
term and that's just the start of a spectacular future for Eclipse. I'm 
privileged to have been your Representative and now even more so to be 
your advocate and assistant.
Bjorn Freeman-Benson
