I’d like to congratulate Ana for joining the board.
Thanks! :) Although I think you are missing some congratulations, as I am not the only joining the board. ;)
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 “meritocracy.”
In openSUSE we welcome EVERYBODY independently of his gender and racial origin. As some people have raised up, there are not data on voters, but even if there were, we are already encouraging everybody who wants to join to do it and I hope we keep doing so.
I really hope that people voted me because they share my ideas and concept of what openSUSE is and the things that need to be improved, and not because I am a woman. I think this is exactly what equality means and one of the reason that makes openSUSE so awesome. :)
