Hi all, Through a reciprocal arrangement with The Document Foundation, the non profit / fiscal sponsor of the LibreOffice project, the GNOME Foundation has a seat on their advisory board, which gives us the opportunity to feed back periodically to TDF advisory board about topics and issues which interest GNOME.
Since this arrangement in 2016, GNOME's seat on TDF's advisory board was filled by a representative from the GNOME Board, Alexandre Franke. As Alexandre has finished his term on the board, we are seeking a new representative. Although there are some members of the current board who are interested in LibreOffice and would happily fill the post in principle (myself included), we don't personally do a great deal of work directly in this space. We thought it would be worthwhile to should look for volunteers amongst the Foundation membership, in case there was an individual who was more directly involved in document freedom issues which affect LibreOffice and GNOME, and could be a more experienced representative. So, we're looking for a volunteer to represent the GNOME Foundation to TDF's advisory board. The requirements to meet would be: - attend the TDF advisory board meetings and act as an advocate for GNOME concerns - collect feedback on LibreOffice from appropriate forums within the GNOME project and report back - listen out for LibreOffice issues which impact GNOME and communicate those with the project So - if you are interested in both LibreOffice and the overlap between free documents and free desktops, please reply to this message and let us know your interest, relevant contributions or experience with either project. The board will vote to select our appointed representative for the remainder of this term, with a view to the board re-affirming this appointment (similar to a committee) each term provided the appointment is working well. Thanks, Rob & the board _______________________________________________ foundation-list mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/foundation-list
