Aloha all Geekos,
This is a gentle reminder that you have only 10 days left to notify the community of your intention to run for the openSUSE Board. If you would like to run but aren't sure what's involved, please reach out to any of the existing Board members and they'll be happy to help with info.

Only openSUSE members have the right to run for a board seat, except if they are in the Election Committee. To stand for a position in the openSUSE board please send a mail to * firstname.lastname@example.org AND * email@example.com
In the application candidates should write a short introduction of themselves and probably a short manifesto/platform/program that gives answers to these topics:
ALL openSUSE members are eligible to vote. If you are a contributor of openSUSE but you are not a member yet, apply for membership now and be a part of the changes to come.
