Today I attended my very first GNOME Board of Directors meeting. Though I won’t be able to vote on issues until July 1st, it was great to witness how the process works and be able to ask questions and receive answers directly from current and former board members.
I must say that the entire meeting felt very streamlined and ran smoothly, partially because of people like Vincent, Brian, GermÃ¡n and Paul who seem to be on top of everything and juggling several balls at the same time! Stormy must sleep very well at night knowing she can count on people of this caliber to steer the project.
Emily and Bastien, new members like myself, also made their presence felt by asking questions and getting involved in some topics that were discussed. I asked Â a few questions myself and tried to absorb as much as possible, juggling work and the action taking place on Gobbi and IRC.
I feel bad for not being able to attend GUADEC this year as I’ll probably be the only Board member not to be present… but I am looking forward to working with these guys and gals and fill the shoes of those who are departing this year!
