"When deciding who you should vote for, please carefully
consider the various tasks the Board of Directors must perform.
This overview (http://foundation.gnome.org/overview.html) may be
helpful. Keep in mind that the board will make a number of
important decisions and will also have to perform many tasks which
require a significant amount of time and effort and the ability to
work and communicate with other people, companies, and the media.
The board of directors will represent GNOME to companies and the
world in a very real way. It is a good idea to strive for a
well-balanced board consisting of people with various backgrounds,
skills, and perspectives."
