just to let you and the election officials know I want to run for the
openSUSE Board again.
Since the conference after the last we started to transform the Board
from a group of people who had no real idea what they are supposed to do
(only what they are not supposed to do) into an entity of democratic
elected representatives of our Members that tries to tackle the
important project wide challenges.
We took a stand for the independence of this project with the first
steps towards a Foundation, we pushed to clarify the direction we are
heading to with getting the Strategy rolling and we took care of the
growth of the openSUSE projects by accelerating the Membership process.
I'm proud of what we achieved but I also think that we are far from done.
I'm especially concerned about the topic of the Foundation because I
don't see too many people invested yet. We need to make sure that the
Foundation is set up so that all the people who are willing AND able to
carry it into the future are engaged from the beginning and understand
that the openSUSE Foundation is theirs to run and to enjoy.
Other than that I want to make sure that we continue the path we are on
and act as a council of democratic elected representatives that don't
dictate but facilitate because I think this is one of the greatest
achievements of the openSUSE Project. Leadership without powerplay. And
of course, you know me, I also want to continue to make sure that the
openSUSE Board work produces tangible results :)
So please accept my candidacy and vote for me and I promise I will
continue to push this project forward.
