Although I’m not a voting member bu as along time use and supporter
of (open)SuSE, and in the interests of diversity, could I ask for a breakdown of the voting membership and board by gender and racial origin. If the results are as I suspect, what are board’s plans for addressing this?
And don’t start with the nonsense about “unbiassed” and
First of all, data on voters doesn't exist, those are anonymous voters from the whole community.
I found that idea to be really curious. I don't really understand how do you make community that memeber of any gender or ethnic group can join more diverse? It's based on person's will to join. We encourage everybody, and whoever joins is equal member.
I also don't understand how you make democratically chosen board to be diverse, that would require for voting process to be rigged in favor of people with some specific racial origins (because some of them were underrepresented) and gender (same thing), that's not democratic at all then.
Some people look beyond gender and racial origins and want people with skills and ideas to run the project.
It certainly would be interesting to have diverse board, but with democratic approach, it's just not viable.
