mathieu just put up a list of people he
would like to see elected to the GNOME Foundation board and
I think it is a good list. My first thought was to put up my
own list of candidates too, but starting with Matheiu list I
had a hard time deciding who to delete, I guess I have some
hard decisions to make before casting my vote :)
So I will instead just make some extra recomandations:
- First of all I suggest altering the list so
that Martin Baulig and Miguel de Icaza both
gets on the board.
- I also suggest adding Michael Meeks to the
Michael has been one of the core Gnumeric hackers and is
currently doing some great work on Bonobo. Michael is
working for HelixCode and is located in England.
- The third candidate I would like to see is Bertrand
Guiheneuf a long time GNOME contributor (ObjC bindings
and early incarnations of Evolution.) and founder of
Henzai, a company which
is making GNOME run on handhelds etc.
As mentioned I haven’t really decided who I am going to
remove from Matheiu original list to make room for these
I want to say that since all these alternative candiates are
coders, if you decide to add them your own ballot list, you
probably should replace some of the other coders. Currently
there are only two people on the list who aren’t primarly
coders and I think decreasing that percentage even more
would be a bad thing.
