The first democratically elected PEAR Group has taken power

[May 4, 2007]

For the first time in its history, PEAR has a new PEAR Group. Following on the heels of the adoption of the Constitution, the new members have been elected by secret ballot of the PEAR developers and they have chosen:

  • Martin Jansen
  • David Coallier
  • Arnaud Limbourg
  • Joshua Eichorn
  • Christian Weiske
  • Helgi Þormar

The PEAR Group members will serve a term from May 1, 2007 until May 1, 2008.

The election results are here. There was a tie for the 7th slot, and Lukas Smith has been appointed by the president, Gregory Beaver to temporarily act as the 7th PEAR Group member until the run-off election can be held.
