Subject Fwd: [VOTE] Andy Grove for Tuscany Committer ------ needs 2 more IPMC votes please
Date Tue, 01 May 2007 08:16:20 GMT
IPMC members,

  Tuscany held a vote to  make Andy Grove a committer [1].  In the 13 +1s
there was one IPMC binding vote,  so I understand we need to get a couple of
those before the vote is closed.  Please take a look at the summary of
Andy's activities at the head of the vote thread and cast your vote.

Regards, Kelvin.
