Hi Board member candidates (and fellow voter members),



Thanks to Helena, Astrid, Jody and Sanghee for adding their Manifestos [1].

Really much appreciated, and at least now we have 6 known candidates to cast our 5 votes to!

I hope that Dirk, Venga and Jeff will take the opportunity to add their manifestos as well before the end of this campaign week.


After reading them, I have 3 questions:

= One to Sanghee: 

I really like your personal review of the last 2 years as a Board member. Not just fun parts, but also some harder times. 

Could you please elaborate on the "Sometimes I saw the 'Desire to the Innocence' from the community"? I simply don't quite understand what you mean by this.


= One to Astrid:

Almost all of your objectives seem outreach-related (PR, OSGeo Live etc.)

What  are the advantages of doing so as a Board member, instead of (or in addition to) begin a member of the recently revived Marketing Committee


= And one to all of you:

Some of you talk about being an inclusive organization. 

For the geographical and probably cultural aspect of inclusiveness, do you think the Board should have it's roots in as much continents / languages as possible, so preferably 1 Board member from every continent (not counting for Antarctica, ha!)



Wishing you all the best and success in your campaigns,
