I actually spend around one-two hours per day fullfiling my
Accounts Team / Membership Committee duties and I'm glad I can give
my two cents to make things working great. When I sent out my candidacy I was
aware of what was waiting me if elected: all GNOME contributors and developers
do strongly believe in the candidate they vote for and it's actually up to me to
not disappoint them, I took up a commitment with the GNOME community and the
GNOME Foundation and I'll do my best to fullfil my duties.

I definitely agree with you here. I am currently involved in many Fedora teams
and projects: everything is done at the open, everyone can join up the
IRC channel
and ask a question or propose a new idea, all decisions are well
documented through
public logs that can be even commented out on a specific mailing list
if someone didn't
make the meeting. I would simply love seeing Board's meetings adopting
Fedora's example.

Thank *you* for the nice questions.
