+% Welcoming Andrew Robbins
+% Leah Rowe and Alyssa Rosenzweig
+% 4 Jun 2017
+On 25 April, Libreboot adopted new [collective governance policies], creating a
+flat-hierarchy leadership of four people. As a result, all patches are
+reviewed, and all major decisions are voted on by the maintainers with
+community input. These policies formalise our democratic standards.
+Today, we welcome Andrew Robbins (IRC nick `and_who` and [NotABug] user
+[kragle]) as our first new maintainer under the new policy. Going forward,
+Andrew will gain push access to Libreboot in order to review patches, as well
+as voting rights and IRC operator status.
+Andrew works on critical improvements to the build system, many of which have
+already been merged. He is passionate about Libreboot, understanding the
+project at a deep level, and he has been an active member of the community.
+Thus, with unanimous agreement from the existing maintainers, Andrew has joined
+the project officially.
+We look forward to Andrew's next contributions as our project continues to
+The new list of maintainers is as follows:
