As a personal note: As a co-scrutineer, it was my job to guarantee that 
the vote process itself is conducted properly and fairly. I think it 
was. Gerv and me tried to the best of our ability to make the vote fair 
and proper.

This is not to say that the vote process was appropriate. I do not think 
that it gave sufficient choice, and I therefore I personally think it 
was invalid. For more details on the reasons, see my post with 
message-ID <56C1D8D0.5090706 at> in thread "Upcoming Council vote".

However, I do think that the majority of the council members are 
well-deserved. I'd like to thank them for their hard work, esp. in their 
development work. Most of the Council members are indeed those who keep 
Thunderbird running. Many thanks to them, and congratulations!
