Hello,

In addition to the usual BoFs and hackfests after the core days

The registration system[4] is now open and you can register for both
the conference and workshops. Workshop attendance is limited and slots

event do not forget that we also provide a set of badges[5] you can use

Error in Board of Directors elections rules redirect URL

Dear Foundation Members,

a report was recently received by the Membership Committee regarding
an inconsistency relating to a URL redirect used for the elections
rules, as originally included and found on the Bylaws [1]. The URL in
question is [2] and has been pointing - due to a human error and a
technical problem in the internal web server rewrite rules file [3] -
to the 2014 elections rules URL [4].

All the announcements [5], timelines and details contained on each of
the ballots you received were correct and only the aforementioned URL
was pointing to the wrong resource.

The GNOME Foundation and all its internal bodies value openness and
transparency. As such we wanted to make the membership aware of this
error. If anyone has been affected by this oversight, felt confused
and wasn't able to vote please report it to the Membership & Elections
Committee at [6].

We would like to thank Tobias Mueller for the original report.

Cheers,
Andrea - on behalf of the GNOME Foundation Membership & Elections Committee
