Hello, good people,

Thanks a lot to my dear friend Thorsten for this nomination. After a
moment of distance from the project, I am thrilled to be back, alive
and kicking. I am humbled and naturally, I can only accept this
generous nomination

I am really amazed. Thorsten has the gift to find always words that
make me -- for a short moment -- even believe all the nice things he
says about me :)

I am reputed to be a developer. I have spent a lot of time to mentor
GSoC students and to co-administer the GSoC within LibreOffice and
within its predecessors.

Why am I running?

As a (naturalized) Swiss and fluent in a certain number of languages,
I managed to create and keep great relationships in several NL
communities as well as quite a good understanding of the different
mentalities. Given my inside knowledge of the different communities, I
am confident that I could be the bridging element inside the Board.

In spite of my quite original character, and in major part by my
persistence, I managed to give a birth to a particular community of
writers of filters for reverse-engineered file-formats. This work
helped to market our product as a Swiss Army Knife(tm) or office suites.

Having gone with our project through periods of huge euphoria, but
also through the dark valleys of deep depression, I can offer this
experience for the good of the foundation and of its members.

If the electors deem me worthy serving on the Board, I will do my very
best not to disappoint them.
