Hi guys,

I think Michaels candidacy has brought up a very interesting and a very
important topic: the fact that there seems to be a misunderstanding about
what this election is good for and an even larger misunderstanding about
what the board of directors of the GNOME Foundation is supposed to do.

Michael, I fully agree with your concerns and I think we need to take
action here and tell people what this election is about. Since our
membership requirements are so lax we'll also get a larger number of
non-technical people vote and there may be even some `users' who're just
doing some "advocacy" to vote.
