>>> I hope everyone is well. We are in a seasonal transition -- winter has
>>> begun in the north and summer in the south. I wanted to convey holiday
>>> greetings to everyone in the community and also to provide some updates:
>>> * We have a new oversight board. Welcome to James Cameron, Alex Perez,
>>> and Devin Ulibarri. Lionel Laske and I were reelected to our seats. Claudia
>>> Urrea and Samson Goddy will be completing their two-year terms in 2019. I
>>> think we have a very strong group, with demonstrable dedication to Sugar
>>> Labs and its mission and I look forward to having a very productive (and
>>> fun) year.
>>> * Many thanks to Adam, Sameer, and Ignacio, all three of whom have
>>> dedicated many years of effort to the project and the community. Your
>>> contributions are appreciated.
>>> * James will be taking over for me as chair of the oversight board
>>> meetings -- he runs a much better meeting than I do and I think it will be
>>> a change for the better in terms of making us a more efficient
>>> organization, able to make more thoughtful decisions more quickly.
>>> * James will also be replacing Adam as the Sugar Labs liaison to the
>>> Software Freedom Conservancy. I know he will offer a level of
>>> professionalism that will hopefully lead to clear and timely communication
>>> between our organizations.
>>> A few heads up:
>>> * Devin and I head to Japan to run some Music Blocks workshops in early
>>> January as part of an ongoing effort to reach elementary schools throughout
>>> the country. It has been going really well so far and I have high hopes
>>> that this little bit of Sugar will be used and enjoyed widely.
>>> * Rahul Bothra is helping to organize a new set of landing pages for
>>> Google Summer of Code. I anticipate that Sugar Labs will be applying again
>>> this year and we are striving to be more organized than in years past.
>>> * The winners of the Google Code-in contest will be announce in two
>>> weeks by Google. We had some fantastic contributions this year. Thank you
>>> for all the help with organizing (Ibiam), mentoring, and participation.
>>> Make sure to spend some time with family over these short (or long) days.
