As we just posted on gnome.org, the Elections Committee announced the official results of the GNOME elections this week. The new board members are:
- Emmanuele Bassi
- Joanmarie Diggs
- Seif Lotfy
- Shaun McCance
- Tobias Mueller
- Andreas Nilsson
- Bastien Nocera
It’s a lot of commitment and effort to serve as a Director, so these people (and all of the candidates) deserve a big thank you. In particular, the outgoing directors need special mention – Brian Cameron, Ryan Lortie, Stormy Peters, and Germán Póo-Caamaño all have worked so hard and have given so much over the past year(s). Join me in thanking them!
Today’s the last day to vote for the GNOME board of directors! You’ve got until 23:59 UTC – that’s only 4:59pm if you live on the west coast of the United States…
The candidates are listed here.
This Sunday is the deadline to decide to run for the GNOME board! While it can be a lot of work, serving on the GNOME board is a great way to contribute to the community and make sure that things are run in the way you think they should be. (Plus, you’d get to be one of my bosses!) I’ve only seen a couple of candidacies announced, but I’m hoping to see a lot more this weekend – we need seven directors in total. The details are all here.
