GNOME contributions:

Non conventional GNOME promotion.

Detailed description:
Years before GNOME project was created, I had been helping Miguel, Federico and latter Nat Friedman with 
strategic input.

For example, I promote the creation of the GNOME Foundation.

In that context, I had been promoting of GNOME with the numerous mesoamerica native indians. Only in Mexico 
there are 68 different indian languages, some with several million speakers, but non has a GNOME translation.

Years ago, we had a very promising relation with de national education system, particularly with the ILCE 
(ONU organization), that would had change that. For all those years Microsoft made sure that that wont 

Today we are directly working with indian organizations, we have now some Linux effort started and soon we 
hope will have GNOME translations available.

Other comments:
Mesoamerican Indians have always work collaboratively. The free software culture has a lot to learn from this 
millenia old way of living.

Taxes for example, call "Tequio" in imperial Nahuatl language, was never in money, but on people community 

Now, we have to direct that work on translating GNOME in Nahuatl, Otomi, Mixe, Zapoteco, Purepecha, etc.
