Re: Random thoughts on this elections (was Re: Candidacy (Michael Meeks))

Hi Martin,

I think the Overview that Dan Mueth wrote

explaining what the board is and what we're looking for in board
candidates.  We do have a very open candidacy process, but I trust that
we'll end up with a great group of candidates and that the GNOME
community will be able to figure out which of us candidates belong on
the board. Do you think something else is needed?
