I never had a chance to know you when you were active before, but I'm
sure any TU Fellow would have little/no problems being re-elected,
certainly under the circumstances you've presented! :)

As for the MATE desktop, it has languished ever since Martin retired. I
used it myself for a little while after gnome2, before switching to
cinnamon... I've considered getting back in touch with the MATE side of
things and picking up the package set, but I'm still not sure I want to,
so if you would give it some much-needed love, that would be awesome!
