In a Xubuntu Community Meeting attended by nine people, a vote was
taken to confirm Charlie Kravetz as Xubuntu Project Lead. This was the
culmination of many months of Xubuntu operating with an interim leader.
The vote has confirmed Charlie Kravetz as the Xubuntu Project Lead. 

Thanks to all of the attendees and to the Xubuntu Project. I will do my
best to make this a great distribution.

The full meeting minutes and logs are available[1]. For those

Project Lead follows:
