Dear future or existing candidates to  the board of directors,

I just wanted to remind you that:
1) the nomination deadline is approaching fast
2) don't forget to answer my questions below -two candidates have declared
their candidacy but have not replied so far.

Dear candidates to the board of directors of the Document Foundation,

I would first like to thank you for running as candidates for the board 
of directors. At this time, not every candidate has declared his or her 
candidacy. However, I would like to ask a few questions about your views 
and intentions regarding the Document Foundation and your plans as 
potential directors of the entity. I hope they will be helpful in 
englightening our membership and hopefully, all of you will be able to 
answer them.

1. Do you commit yourself to have enough time and the necessary 
technological tools in order to participate to the regularly scheduled 
board calls?

2. Do you commit yourself to follow up and work on (at least) the main 
items and actions you have volunteered to oversee or that have been 
attributed to you by the board?

3. What are your views on the foundation's budget? How should the money 
be spent, besides our fixed costs?

4. Should we work towards broadening our pool of contributors, both 
technical and non-technical?

5. Should the Foundation -as an entity distinct from the LibreOffice 
project or the Document Liberation project- engage into growing its 
influence and promoting and defending Free Software and Digital Freedom? 
It is, after all, an integral part of its mission per its very Statutes. 
If yes, do you have ideas on what should be done about this?

6. How do you view your (potential) role as a member of the board of 
directors, given that this position does not give you any specific 
functional role inside the LibreOffice or Document Liberation projects?

7. What is the biggest problem of the foundation in your opinion? What 
is its biggest opportunity?

Thank you for your answers,

Charles-H. Schulz.
