Thanks Dean for the feedback and support.

We also had a discussion about this on the TSC call today and were in an agreement about holding interim elections to fill in the open positions.

The election officials started the preparations, please stay tuned for updates.

In the meantime please don’t hesitate to raise further questions or comments if you have any.

Thanks and Best Regards,
