> 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.
