gnomes collecting pants nominations

Hi folks, in preparation for GUADEC & the board meeting this Monday,
we'd like to collect nominations for the traditional Pants Award.

The criteria for people you'd like to nominate are:

* Must go above and beyond in his or her contributions to GNOME.
  This should be outside (or in addition to) any responsibilities to an
  employer for work on GNOME.
* Is not a board member (since the board decides who the winner is).
* Is attending GUADEC (ideally) to receive the award in person.

The award can be for any work on GNOME—documents, design, translation,
marketing, sysadmin, code, bug triaging—anything!

Got someone in mind?
Send your suggestions to board-list <at>   to let us know!

If you're attending GUADEC 2015, make sure to register.

Hi Foundation,

Just a quick reminder that, if you're planning to come to Gothenburg
to attend GUADEC, you should make sure to register at
https://registration.guadec.org/ as soon as possible.

The venue can accommodate a certain amount of people, and we need to
make sure we don't go over that limit. Besides that, we'd really
appreciate if you're able donate a registration fee to help make
GUADEC happen.

Thanks so much! And see you all in Sweden.

Fabiana

Orca Project - forwarding a message

Hi GNOME community,

I have promised him to forward his request to this list and I am keeping my words so, please see:
For me, the purpose in life is to draw a smile on someone's face. For this user, I'd go the extra miles and do more.

What could be better than reading this:
https://twitter.com/ruchir89/status/603306990085869568

And, I am sure there are many over there like him.

I am not sure if this is the right channel to forward such message? but I believe the whole GNOME community need to know how GNOME has changed the lives of so many people and what a great feeling to be a member and part of this wonderful community :)

My days with Ubuntu GNOME as a community manager is the best of all. Thank you, everyone!

Best Regards,
