As I wasn't sure what the procedure was for the board of directors, in the case of a resignation, I went and grabbed a copy of the bylaws from http://foundation.gnome.org/about/bylaws.pdf Section 4 subsection d it states that the board can fill a vacancy by a vote of the remaining directors. With that said, Congratulations Diego! I do have one question about the bylaws, though. I seem to recall a large discussion about changing the term of the directors to be 18 months instead of 1 year. However, Section 3 subsection a still states that directors hold office for one (1) year. I also noticed that the history information at the bottom of the document states that the last change was April 5, 2002. I'm sure that the discussion I recall was more recent than this. What is the current term of a member of the Gnome Foundation Board of Directors? What is the official location of the Bylaws governing the Gnome Foundation? If it is the above URL, and the term is not still 1 year, how can we get this copy updated? If it's not this URL, can somebody tell me where it is, and can we make foundation.gnome.org link to it prominently? Thanks, Greg [snip] _______________________________________________ foundation-list mailing list email@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/foundation-list
