Hello, I'll run for a Board of Directors seat at the Document Foundation again.
I'm Andreas Mantke, now 54 years old, and I live in Duisburg, North-Rhine-Westfalia, Germany. I work in the office of a social security institution called Deutsche Rentenversicherung Rheinland in Düsseldorf and had to deal with rules and regulations there. I worked since autumn 2002 for the community of LibreOffice and it's antecessor. I was responsible there for the documentation inside the German speaking lang-project for long time, wrote some free licensed howtos myself and started work on the portable version of the office suite. I worked also with the former extensions and templates site and upgraded the ODFAuthors site to a newer Plone environment. I gave also some presentations about the office suite and documentation at conferences and other events and run some boothes together with other project members. I'm with TDF and LibreOffice since it's announcement. I'm one of the founders of the German association Freies Office Deutschland e.V., but I have no special role there. Once LibreOffice was born I continued my work with presentations and running boothes together with other project members, e.g. at Open Rhein Ruhr in Oberhausen, at the Cebit in Hannover and at LinuxTag in Berlin. Alongside I worked on a new environment for the Authors documentation team and made a few easy commits to the source code of LibreOffice. I created the new LibreOffice extensions and template repository and the conference sites for the LibreOffice conferences in Berlin and Milan, which I maintain. In the last nearly two years I served on the BoD as a deputy member and worked together with the other board members to shape and grow up the foundation. I want to continue this work, because our way of the development of an open source and free office software within a own independent meritocratic organization showed already success and I'm convinced that we should go further in this direction with openness and transparency as we already did.
