New directors and members for the DSF

Earlier this month, we announced the resignation of Dan Cox from the Django Software Foundation board. Since then, the DSF membership has been nominating and discussing possible replacements.

These discussions led to a clearly preferred candidate; so earlier this week, the board of the Django Software Foundation (DSF) met and voted unanimously to confirm Alex Gaynor to fill Dan's seat on the DSF board.

Alex has been a member of the Django community for many years. He was a Google Summer of Code student in 2009 and 2010, and has been a member of the core team for almost 2 years. He was also one of the first developer members appointed to the DSF.

Following nominations from the DSF membership, the DSF board has also confirmed the first two Developer Members who aren't also committers -- Daniel Greenfeld and Jonas Obrist. Although they aren't members of the core team, Daniel and Jonas have both made significant contributions to the broader Django community through their efforts in organising conferences, and managing valuable Django-related projects.

Welcome to Alex, Daniel and Jonas!
