Dear X.Org Members,

The 2016 Election is now over and the results are in. Two questions were up
for voting, 4 seats on the Board of Directors and approval of the amended
By-Laws to join SPI.

The Results of the Board of Director elections:
    Candidates and their respective points:
        Egbert Eich      205
        Alex Deucher     195
        Keith Packard    152
        Bryce Harrington 142
        Lucas Stach      129

Therefore the following candidates have been elected to the board:
    Egbert Eich, Alex Deucher, Keith Packard, Bryce Harrington

The results on the vote to change the By-Laws to join SPI:
    Do you agree to the changed By-Laws?
        Yes     54/65 (83.1%)
        No      4/65 (6.2%)
        Abstain 3/65 (4.6%)

We have 65 members and 61 votes were recorded.

According to Article 7 of the Oct. 29, 2006 By-Laws the following
provision is made for changes to the By-Laws:

 "AMENDMENT These By-law may be altered, amended or repealed by
  an affirmative vote of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the Members
  of X.Org."

We have reached quorum and have a 2/3 majority in favour of the change. The
changes to the By-Laws are thus accepted.
