GUADEC is fast approaching! (Take a minute and register now if you haven’t already.) One of the fun things about GUADEC is that we give an award to an extraordinary contributor. It’s called the pants award.
Yes, the award is an actual pair of pants. Pretty cool, no?
The criteria for the award is quite simple. This person:
- must go above and beyond in his or her contributions to GNOME. This should be outside (or in addition to) any responsibilities to an employer for work on GNOME.
- can’t be a board member (since the board decides who the winner is).
- should ideally be attending GUADEC to receive the award in person.
The award can be for any work on GNOME – documents, design, translation, marketing, sysadmin, code, bug triaging… anything! Last year’s winner, Marina Zhurakhinskaya, won primarily for her amazing work on outreach.
Got someone in mind? Go ahead and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let the board know!
