A question to candidates


I did send these to the membership committee, but voting's nearly open,
and I think they're important, so I guess I'll just ask...

The foundation's role is essentially to facilitate the enthusiasm of the
GNOME project, as Andrew Cowie blogged earlier [1]. This consists of two
major elements - managing/improving the finances that the foundation
has, and identifying areas where those finances can help remove
roadblocks or encourage productive contribution.

After two years without a full-time employee, the foundation's finances
are in a decent state, with $150K cash and $50K receivables [2].

What do you see as the best way to spend this money? In terms of hiring,
do you prefer hiring a sysadmin, or an executive director? What other
priorities do you have for expenditure this year, outside of our usual
cost centers (GUADEC + salaries + travel sponsorship)?

A second question to all candidates: what do you see as the weak points
of the current board, and how do you propose addressing those weak points?
