I'll run for a Board of Directors seat at the Document Foundation again.

I'm Andreas Mantke, now 54 years old, and I live in Duisburg,
North-Rhine-Westfalia, Germany. I work in the office of a social
security institution called Deutsche Rentenversicherung Rheinland in
Düsseldorf and had to deal with rules and regulations there.

I worked since autumn 2002 for the community of LibreOffice and it's
antecessor. I was responsible there for the documentation inside the
German speaking lang-project for long time, wrote some free licensed
howtos myself and started work on the portable version of the office
suite. I worked also with the former extensions and templates site and
upgraded the ODFAuthors site to a newer Plone environment.

I gave also some presentations about the office suite and documentation
at conferences and other events and run some boothes together with other
project members. I'm with TDF and LibreOffice since it's announcement.

I'm one of the founders of the German association Freies Office
Deutschland e.V., but I have no special role there.

Once LibreOffice was born I continued my work with presentations and
running boothes together with other project members, e.g. at Open Rhein
Ruhr in Oberhausen, at the Cebit in Hannover and at LinuxTag in Berlin.
Alongside I worked on a new environment for the Authors documentation
team and made a few easy commits to the source code of LibreOffice. I
created the new LibreOffice extensions and template repository and the
conference sites for the LibreOffice conferences in Berlin and Milan,
which I maintain.

In the last nearly two years I served on the BoD as a deputy member and
worked together with the other board members to shape and grow up the
foundation. I want to continue this work, because our way of the
development of an open source and free office software within a own
independent meritocratic organization showed already success and I'm
convinced that we should go further in this direction with openness and
transparency as we already did.
