Since we're moving to use this mailing list and other OpenStack
infrastructure soon, I thought I should forward the results of our
recent MidoNet PTL elections to the openstack-dev list.

Alright, the nomination period has ended and there has only been a
single proposal for candidacy. Ryu clearly fulfills all the
requirements, therefore his candidacy is approved.

However, as stated before, there's no point in having an election with
only just one candidate. So please join me in congratulating Ryu to
becoming the first-ever MidoNet PTL, effective immediately!

Thanks for stepping up Ryu! Looking forward on collaborating with you
to reach your high-level goals for our team!
