Dear members & Board of Directors of The Document Foundation,
I would like to nominate myself for the next MC of TDF.
I am Muhammet Kara from Turkey, member/translator/developer/advocate of
various FOSS projects since early 2000s, and I have been contributing to
LibreOffice in various ways since 2016, including code contributions,
translation, qa work, marketing/advocacy, taking part in the Design Team
as a developer. And I'm also a LibreOffice certified developer,
primarily working on the core & online code bases professionally.
Although I would like to see LibreOffice and other FOSS projects
flourish in every aspect, I like primarily focusing on attracting more
young people (especially developer candidates from universities) to our
community, and helping maintain/increase its diversity.
I have also been serving in the current Membership Committee as a deputy
member since 2018, trying to act in the MC as per the goals I described
during my candidacy in 2018. I especially tried to bring some value to
the MC, as someone who is on both the development and the less technical
sides of the project. And I would like to continue in that direction,
hopefully with some additional experience I have gained so far, if I am
Some other FOSS projects I contribute(d) to: GNOME, KDE, The (GNU)
Translation Project, Fedora.

My official candidacy statement:
By leveraging my experience in the current MC, and in various
development mentoring and community building activities, I would like to
continue doing my part also in the next MC. I'll keep focusing on
diversity, and making our processes smoother for all; and I'll continue
trying to find new ways for bringing more young people to our community
as I have been trying to do so far.
