 Hi all,

Hey, Lucas!

 I've been thinking a lot about what to do about my participation on
 GNOME Foundation's Board of Directors in face of the fact that my wife
 and I are expecting our first baby in February. After careful
 consideration, I decided to resign. I want to be fully focused on my
 family (especially in the first few months) without feeling bad for
 doing Board stuff while I could be with my family or not doing Board
 stuff while I'm spending time with my family.

You're a great example for our community! Thanks for all the work
you've done! Unfortunately we lost the Brazilian guy on the board!
That's the right decision, I think. Welcome to the team. My daughter
is 4 months old now and these times were incredible!
Não basta ser pai, tem que participar! (in our secret language,
pt_BR - somebody will ask about it) is the rule!

 So, considering my priorities now, I feel that I would be more useful
 to the Board by stepping down and letting another person with a lot of
 energy to take my position on Board for the rest of this mandate. The
 Board has decided to appoint Jorge Castro to replace me. He's highly
 motivated and I'm sure he'll give good contributions as a member of
 the Board.

I don't personally know (yet) Jorge Castro, just bothered him with
some mails, but I see that he is rocking on our community. So, I want
to say: Congrats, Jorge! I tried to find where you've born without
success, but considering your name and surname, I think that the Latin
America Complot
(http://www.mail-archive.com/foundation-list@gnome.org/msg03288.html)
is in the road!

 I've had a great time in my two and a half years on Foundation Board.
 It was a great way to support the community in several ways and to
 work with some very nice people. The GNOME Foundation is getting
 better everyday and I feel very proud to be part of it.

Good luck, my friend! And enjoy your pre-father and fresh-father times!
Is there any decision about the baby's name?

Cheers!

 Challenge!

 You just announced the results based on first-past-the-post, when the
 elections were to be run using preferential voting, with single transferable
 vote and fractional surplus transfer.

 Srinivasa and Diego get elected in that system instead of Jorge.


Dear Foundation Members,
Dear Dave,

We have received your challenge and accepted it as an issue.

We have used the counting method Random Transfer STV with
Droop-Static-Whole threshold which might produce different results if
you change the order of the ballots. Although we ran the counting
several times to check whether it produces different results, we did
not see any: We have not changed the order of the ballots, or, to be
more precise, the voting software did not change the order and thus
the results were perfectly reproducible for all of us.

We do, however, accept the fact that if you counted manually, you
could gather a different result. This is the reason why we decided to
use the deterministic Fractional Transfer STV.
Thus we will not declare the preliminary result announced on
2009-06-24 as valid. Instead, we will announce new preliminary results
using Fractional STV soon, if there are no further objections. These
results can then be challenged.

As you stated that you wanted to have that method used, we assume that
this resolves your challenge. Is that correct?

We'd like to thank you for the challenge.

That's my position too. Co-pay policy is great, however, what we have

 Hi Bruno,

Hey, Dave!

 You are making an assumption of unlimited funds!

I'm not disagreeing out of the co-pay policy, I'm just thinking that
we don't need fixed values to do this. The committee can treat each
case separately.

 Do you remember how much it cost you to get to Istanbul, Bruno? With
 accommodation, perhaps €1000? Baris told me that last year we funded
 people for $60,000 - which covered travel and accommodation for...
 flights for 27 people, and accommodation for 35 people. Do you think
 that perhaps we could have used this money more efficiently to benefit
 60 or 70 people?

I remember. It was ~1,500 EUR (hey, I'm from Brazil).
I think we can pay for the people who can't pay (and of course, deserves it).

Hey Stormy, Dave and Claudio!

 Seriously, I don't like this. Telling a student who's been contributing
 on his free time to the project that he needs to request special
 consideration if he can't afford those 200 € could even cause him not to
 apply at all.

 I think GUADEC is a special kind of conference in the sense it needs to
 be inclusive, specially for people who is not so integrated in the
 community and for whom attending may have a huge impact on their
 involvement. Maybe hackfests and other local conferences may suit better
 for the approach you propose, but definitively not GUADEC.

I'm with Claudio on this issue. Last year I could not go to GUADEC if
I had to pay 200 € (wait to be reimbursed has been difficult). GUADEC
should be a special case.

GNOME Foundation Elections 2007. Let's start the debate!

2007-11-19 Thread Bruno Boaventura
With the final list of candidates announced, it's time to submit
questions about the GNOME Foundation and GNOME Project to this years
prospective Board of Directors.

The list, a summary of each candidate's statement and a link to each
candidate's candidacy can be found at:

http://foundation.gnome.org/elections/2007/candidates.html

Here we'll go:

[1] How much impact would being a member of the GNOME Foundation Board
have on your current contributions to GNOME ?

[2] Online Desktop and Services are being talked about as the next
large step in GNOME - what is your vision for Online Desktop and
Services and how would you measure them ?

[3] What are the SMART goals that you desire to set for yourself
should you be elected to the Board ?

[4] If you were part of the GNOME Board last year and a candidate
again, what would you like to put as your achievements as a Board
member ?

Or,

[4] If you are a candidate for the first time, what are the areas that
you think you can do better ?

[5] Do you think it is important to mentor and coach potential leaders
in the GNOME community ? If yes, what do you think the role of the
Board be in this task ? If no, what are your thoughts on this ?

[6] Some of the tasks of a Board Member are mundane administrative
tasks, are you comfortable taking on such tasks as opposed to being
always involved in strategic and visionary thinking ?

[7] What or which according to you, is the one tipping point move
for GNOME in the coming year ?

[8] What do you think is the most important item on the Board's agenda
right now ? What will you do more or better than the previous boards
in that aspect ?

[9] What is your positioning with respect to the issue of OOXML?

[10] Why do you think we need a GNOME Foundation ?


We hope a very good debate!

 I ask only because if members do have questions, it becomes extremely

  I think it's time to add more contributors on sysadmin. Me and Diego are
  very interested to contribute in many areas on GNOME. We have time,
  motivation and love, but we need help to start. I'm a person who can learn
  quickly.
 
 I appreciate your enthusiasm, and there's every chance that we will take up
 both your offers. However, our experience shows that 'more' does not always
 mean 'better'. Don't be disappointed though -- that's just the gut reaction
 you're going to get from the team straight away.

Thanks... I'm not disappointed, but still offering my help in
anything!!!

You rock! We rock! GNOME rock!

 Hei,
 
 Membership Committee
 
 Baris had worked on renewals, but his laptop was recently stolen so he 
  has
 to start again. There's a membership committee meeting next week where
 this will be discussed, along with other topics (like membership
 applications taking a long time to be processed, and new members for the
 committee). Vincent will again be the board representative for the
 membership commitee this year.
 
 I can/want help the membership commitee if needed. Just let me know.
 

I don't know if you thing I'm qualified to, but I want help too.

Cheers,

Bruno
