First we would like to thank the Election Committee for getting the
election process rolling and announcing the time schedule. 
For those of you considering candidacy for the openSUSE Board we thought
that the following information may be useful to you.
As a member of the board you obviously volunteer your time and we know
you will do the best you can in making a positive contribution. While
the future is unpredictable it would be great if you can take a peek
into the crystal ball and see if you feel comfortable with making a 2
year time commitment. During your time on the board you are expected to
participate in most IRC project meetings and the board calls that take
place every other week (currently scheduled for 1 hour on Mondays.) You
are also expected to participate in a face to face board meeting that
usually takes place in Nuremberg at the SUSE office over a weekend
shortly after the new board is formed and you are expected to
participate in the openSUSE conference (end of April 2014). Last but not
least you need to form opinions about project related things that are
brought to the boards attention and volunteer for board activities.
All of this is doable while working full time, obviously, but it has to
be a priority.
Just some food for thought,
Your openSUSE Board
