GNOME Foundation: Official List of Candidates Released

The GNOME Foundation Membership & Elections Committee is pleased to
announce the final list of candidates running for the 2002 elections.

You will find the list of candidates, the invalid nominations and the
calendar of the elections below.

The Committee is still receiving applications for GNOME Foundation
membership, probably because the applicants wants to vote for the
elections. These applications will be processed, but we would like to
recall that these applicants, if their application is approved, won't be
able to vote for the elections because they applied after November 1st.
We would also like to recall that people who have applied for membership
before November 1st but have not seen their application
approved/rejected will be able to vote (if approved). We are processing
their applications.
