Cheers from others

Continuing to be related to the ubuntu membership, here I'd gather cheers from others if anyone is awake:

  • Yay for Timo! Since I started as the moderator of the Finnish Loco team discussion forums, I got into a job interview to work for COSS. Timo has been a valuable contributor for the Finnish open solutions scene and especially for Ubuntu. --Myrtti

  • A long time contributor for Ubuntu and FOSS in general! --TimoAaltonen
