Re: Send us your pants nominations

Two names that I think ought to be on the list are Bastien Nocera and Emmanuele Bassi. Both of them have been involved in the project for a long time and both go that extra mile. I think of them both as people who really believe in GNOME and work hard to make it a success.

Bastien does a lot of technical work in the background to keep GNOME working well. This work often goes unnoticed but I always get the impression that he really pushes hard to make the experience as good as it can be. In addition to technical work, he's previously served on the board, runs GNOME booths at events, has helped to restock the GNOME events box, and most recently has been trying to organise a GUADEC bid for Lyon.

Emmanuele has taken on some major technical initiatives which have been crucial to the project, first with Clutter and now with the GTK Scene Graph and Emeus. He's a former director, and he is involved in other initiatives that are important for the project, for example by carrying the continuous initiative.

Hi all, GUADEC is coming up soon, and with GUADEC comes the annual Pants Award. Every year, GNOME awards a pair of pants to somebody in recognition of their outstanding contributions. The board will make the final decision on who receives the pants, but we'd love to hear your nominations. The award can be for any kind of contribution to our software or our community. It does not have to be software development work. The only requirements are that the person is attending GUADEC to receive the pants, and that it's not a current or outgoing board member. Not sure if the person fits the requirements? Just nominate! We'll sort it out. Please feel free to send your nominations as a reply to this email. Or, if you'd prefer to nominate someone anonymously, email board-list. Thanks, Neil
