Jeremy Dunck joins the DSF Board

In late April, the DSF announced the resignation of Alex Gaynor from the Django Software Foundation board.

The DSF membership nominated a number of potential candidates to replace fill Alex's seat; however, only two of those candidates - Jeremy Dunck and Andy McKay - chose to stand for election. The membership cast their votes, and in a very narrow decision, chose Jeremy Dunck. The board of the Django Software Foundation (DSF) has just met and voted unanimously to confirm Jeremy to fill Alex's seat on the DSF board.

Jeremy is a long-standing member of the Django community, and joined the core team almost a year ago. Jeremy has also served as the DSF secretary since the inception of the Foundation.

However, in light of his new position on the board, Jeremy has chosen to stand down as DSF Secretary. Given the very close vote for the board seat, and Andy's declared interest in addressing issues of transparency and record keeping in DSF operations, the DSF board voted to elect Andy McKay as the new DSF Secretary.

The DSF would again like to thank Alex for his service to the DSF. We look forward to seeing the contributions that Jeremy will make now that he is on the DSF board, and the contribution that Andy will make as Secretary.
