expanding a bit on my brief announcement to steering-discuss@, here's
a slightly more verbose introduction of myself and my motivations.
Who am I?
I'm one of the guys who brought you this funny project (being one of
the founding members), and also the hacker to blame for a bunch of
Impress bugs. I help Florian and the admin team a bit with the server
infrastructure, and I usually press the buttons for doing the
LibreOffice releases. In a previous life, I worked on OOo for Sun
Microsystems, mostly on low-level graphics stuff and the Impress
slideshow. Currently I'm a happy employee of the SUSE desktop team,
working fulltime on LibreOffice.
On a more personal basis, I'm 37, have two kids, and live close to
Hamburg, in the northern part of Germany.
What motivates me to work for TDF?
It is my firm belief that an independent, open, and meritocratic
organisation is the right home for a project the size, and the
diversity, of LibreOffice. Being one of the founding members, I
consider it my duty to help creating, shaping, and maintaining such an
What will I be doing, should I get elected?
Since I'm based in Germany, I'd help with the daily operations of the
Foundation. Beyond that, being a self-confessed hacker, I'd represent
the developers at the board level, and keep sticking to my bad old
habit of signing up for more action items than I could process in due
I hope this answers at least a few questions - if you've more, please
don't hesitate to ask!
