User Data Manifesto

Hi all,

Our friends at ownCloud have been in touch to see if we want to
endorse the next version of the User Data Manifesto [1]. This is due
to be launched at the ownCloud contributor conference at the end of
August. A number of other prominent FOSS projects are lined up to also
endorse it.

Any thoughts?

Allan

Call for GNOME.Asia Summit 2016 Host Proposals

Hi all, 

The GNOME.Asia Committee is inviting interested parties to submit proposals for hosting GNOME.Asia Summit during the 2nd quarter of 2016.

GNOME.Asia Summit is the annual GNOME Conference in Asia. The event focuses primarily on the GNOME desktop, but also covers applications and the development platform tools. It brings together the GNOME community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss the present technology and future developments.

GNOME.Asia Summits have been held in Beijing, Ho-Chi-Minh City, Taipei, Bangalore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Beijing, Depok respectively over the last eight years.

The Committees’s preference is to find a new location each year in order to spread GNOME throughout Asia and we are looking for local organizers to rise to the challenge of organizing an excellent GNOME event. The GNOME.Asia committee will assist in the process, but there is a definitive need for individuals to be actively involved and committed to the planning and execution of the event.

You can learn more about GNOME.Asia Summit at our website: http://www.gnome.asia

Interested parties are hereby invited to submit a formal proposal to the GNOME Asia Committee.  The deadline for the proposals is September 11, 2015. Please email your proposal to gnome-asia-committee-list<at>gnome<dot> org. We might invite you to present your proposal in more details over our regular IRC meetings or send you additional questions and requests. Results will be announced by the first week of October 2015.

The conference will require availability of facilities for 3-5 days, including a weekend, during the 2nd quarter of 2016 (between March and June).  Key points which each proposals should consider and which will be taken into account when deciding among candidates, are:

    • Local community support for hosting the conference.
    • Venue details. Information about infrastructure and facilities to hold the conference should be provided.
    • Preliminary schedule with main program & different activities.
    • Information about how Internet connectivity will be managed.
    • Lodging choices ranging from affordable housing to nicer hotels, and information about distances between the venue and lodging options.
    • The availability of restaurants or the organization of catering on-site, cost of food/soft drinks/beer.
    • The availability and cost of travel from major Asian and European cities.
    • Local industries, universities and government support.

Please provide a reasonably detailed budget (sponsorship, expenses, etc).

  • Plans for local sponsorship’s

Please refer to the GNOME.Asia website. Please also check the GNOME.Asia Summit check list,howtos and the winning proposal for 2012 when putting together a proposal.

You are welcome to contact gnome-asia-committee-list AT gnome org if you have any questions.

Please help to spread the word and we are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
GNOME.Asia Committee

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.
