Wonderful news!  And a nice Christmas present.

I also thing that the proposal that Andrew become this observer is a great
idea. If it okay with everyone, I will assume it is okay, unless you let me
kno in the next day or so. And we can do something a little more formal at
the next board meeting.

Dear Board,

it is my pleasure to let you know that the Omidyar Network has approved our
grant request for 1.5 Million USD of unrestricted funding over two years!

As part of this, they are suggesting to replace Martin Tisne with Andrew
Clark as Board observer. Andrew has been very close to Open Knowledge over
the last months, and he and I worked very closely together over the whole
grant application process.

Please note that all of this information is embargoed for now, until the
grant letter has been signed and we have coordinated with Omidyar about
press releases.

Kind regards

Pavel Richter
