Maybe one of the new board members. Ask them how it's going after 3 months, if their perspective has changed, what they are hoping to do moving forward, etc.
Or one of the advisory board members - I'd like to start highlighting them. I can think of a few that might be able to turn it around quickly. Maybe ask them why their company sponsors GNOME, what they like most about GNOME, what's hardest working for GNOME, what they feel about GNOME 3.0 and what they hear from users.

FYI: I still haven't heard back from Lennart... anyone know of anyone that could do a "quick" BTS for Oct?!?
Stormy reached out recently about having an issue of GJ written all by women. I'm happy to say that she has found some writers, and our November issue will be a special edition of GNOME Journal.
If you would like to contribute additional articles, please reply to me, Stormy or the GNOME Women mailing list.
Don't forget articles are due 10/1 for our Multimedia special edition, and after Issue 18 (GNOME Women on 11/15) I'd like to get Issue 19 out as well on Dec. 15th.

We are good to go for an issue of GNOME Journal written by women! We'll be the November 15th issue, which means all of our articles are due on November 1st. Articles should be 1000-1750 words.
Here is what we have so far:
- GNOME Shell - Marina Zhurakhinskaya
- Epiphany from a user perspective - Diana Katherine Horqque
- 7 year old girls building computers for their grandparents - Cathy Malmrose
TBD - Stormy Peters
Paul Cutler, the editor of GNOME Journal, has updated the submission queue to include us, http://live.gnome.org/GnomeJournal/ArticleSubmissionQueue
. You can find writing guidelines here, http://live.gnome.org/GnomeJournal
If you have any questions or need any help, please don't hesitate to ask. (And keep recruiting more women to join us!)
I'm very excited that we are doing this!
