Re: Questions for the candidates


I think it is safe to pick only questions which are relevant to the
duties of the board of directors.  This basically eliminates most
questions regarding GNOME development.  We need to establish a
division between people guiding the development of GNOME and the board
of directors.

Hi all,

Telsa will look at the questions for the candidates this week-end and I
think she'll be able to tell us which 10 questions she hass chosen on

Possibly earlier, but Monday is safer.
Telsa: if you have any hesitation, feel free to send us a mail. Andy has
volunteered to help you if you need some help.

My only hesitation is whether to pick entire paragraphs which are
three or four questions in one, or whether to lift single sentences
from them when I like those single questions. (Whether or not it was
the main thrust of the question.)

I assume it's up to me which I do (and there is a docs question going
begging in the middle of one of them, so grabbing that is tempting :)), 
but comments are welcome.

Incidentally, is there any point in selecting questions which are
about the design and implementation of Gnome? My understanding as
both foundation member and ex-board member is that these things
are well outside the remit of the board.

I foresee complaints if I don't pick The Mono Question (biggest
thread so far) but I really don't see what it has to be with the
board. It's not a board issue, as I understand it. Can someone
confirm, deny or otherwise clarify this for me?

If I don't hear back by Monday (UK Monday :)), I'll just send what
I have so far.
