The ASF had a very busy week, and held its 2-day Members' meeting (highlighted by elections for the new Board and 100+ potential new Members; votes took place using Apache STeVe). The ASF welcomed its new Board, comprising Rich Bowen, Shane Curcuru, Bertrand Delacretaz, Jim Jagielski, Chris Mattmann, David Nalley, Brett Porter, Sam Ruby, and Greg Stein, and thanked Doug Cutting and Ross Gardler (who stood down at this election) for their service to the Foundation and Apache community.
