New Gentoo foundation trustees elected

Filed under
Gentoo

New trustees for the Gentoo Foundation were just elected. The foundation takes care of Gentoo's intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks) and money. It ensures that nobody violates our copyrights and trademarks, serves as a place to hold money, and decides where to devote that money in the best interests of Gentoo.

Developers have been voting to elect 5 new trustees for the last couple of weeks, and the developers they elected are:

Roy Bamford (neddyseagoon)
Ferris McCormick (fmccor)
Joshua Jackson (tsunam)
Tom Gall (tgall)
William Thomson (wltjr)
