Yet another candidacy statement
James Henstridge <james daa com au>
Currently on a contract with ActiveState (will send a message when this
I have been working on gnome for over 3 years, working on various areas
including the Python language bindings, and various parts of the gnome
and gtk+ development platforms.
I have helped in the development of the new defs format which is
designed to make writing language bindings for gnome easier to write,
and make the APIs of the various language bindings more similar to make
documenting them easier.
I served on the gnome steering committee before the formation of the
gnome foundation, and was a candidate in the last foundation elections.
I am an Australian but unlike Jeff, I have been known to say "mate"
(don't hold that against him though).
If elected, I will make it difficult to schedule conference calls due to
living in the wrong timezone.
On a related note, it would be nice if the elections this year were held
using a preferential system, which would give more fair results (voting
for popular candidates wouldn't effectively decrease the value of your
vote). A description of the algorithm is at:
