Re: Question for candidates: transparency and accountability

Hi Fabiana,

| Hi everyone,

I think it should be communicated when something big happens (ED contracted, Hackfests,
programs like outreachy, etc.) and then after a fiscal year or so.

| your priorities would be to do so?

I think the last year in GUADEC GNOME showed a very detailed graphic on expenses, actually
it was too complex to understanding it at first in my humble opinion =)

I think a good way is a simple graphic with the income/outcome/balance and the important items where the 
outcome went and
if it accomplished the expected result.
I could understand that the income can need some privacy (companies that doesn't want to show its name or so?)

| In terms of accountability, it's been unclear to me since joining the
| Foundation how much different Board members contribute to the Board's goals
| and tasks. Do you think the meeting notes provide enough visibility and
| context to the work being done? By the end of a term, how can the Foundation
| have a fair understanding of one's contributions to the Board?

I think this needs improvement, and I don't have a clear solution without putting more work on the board 
right now.

| Thanks,
| Fabiana
