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

GNOME Board of Directors - candidate - Jim Hall

Hello. I would like to put forward my name for the GNOME Board of Directors. If elected, this will be my first term on the Board.

Name: Jim Hall
Corporate affiliation: none

I have used GNOME since version 1.0, and since 2012 I have worked with GNOME on formal usability testing. I have been a member of the GNOME Foundation since 2014.

I continue to do usability testing with GNOME. I have mentored two cycles of GNOME usability testing as part of the GNOME Outreach Program for Women and for Outreachy. Starting May 23, I will mentor three more Outreachy interns in more usability testing for GNOME.

I figure it is time to do more with GNOME, so I am putting myself forward for the Board of Directors.

Outside of GNOME, I have been part of free/open source software communities since 1993. I have written or contributed to dozens of projects, but I am probably best known for the FreeDOS Project. I also write articles about free/open source software, including several in Linux Journal.

At work, I am the Chief Information Officer at Ramsey County, Minnesota, US.

Thanks,
Jim

Board of Directors Elections 2016 - Candidacy - Shaun McCance

Name: Shaun McCance
Email: shaunm <at> gnome.org
Affiliation: Red Hat

I'm announcing my candidacy for reelection to the Board of Directors
this year. I've served three non-contiguous terms. I served two terms
from 2011 to 2013 as treasurer, and I've served from 2015 to now, and
am the current president.

I am a long-time GNOME contributor. I was the GNOME documentation lead
from 2003 to 2013, and I continue to maintain various documentation
tools. I love GNOME, and I try to contribute however I can, despite my
job involving work on other types of projects.

I do work for Red Hat, though I do not work in the group that works on
GNOME. Red Hat has been very supportive of my work on the Board, for
which I am grateful.

If elected, I do not intend to seek the position of president again. My
travel schedule has interfered with my ability to chair meetings on
more than a few occasions. I'd like to see somebody else take on that
role.

Thanks,
Shaun

Gmane
