The Debian GNU/Linux Project has re-elected its leader, Stefano Zacchiroli, for a third successive term.

This is the first time the project has had a leader for so long, apart from the time when its founder Ian Murdock was in charge from August 1993 till March 1996,

Zacchiroli's re-election is an indication that the members of the project are happy with the initiatives which he has launched in the last two years.

He has already said that he will not be contesting the elections next year. The others who contested the election were Wouter Verhelst and Gergely Nagy.

"I'm flattered by the trust that Debian members have put in me in the past, and now renewed with this election," Zacchiroli said in a media release.

"I've a lot of admiration for democratic processes, and I couldn't be happier to have been chosen to serve as DPL for another year.

"I suspect my agenda for the year will be quite packed and, in parallel, I'll do my best to make myself replaceable."
