b) TDF currently has 221 members and none of them asked any question
That's something to think long and hard about. What does this mean to
the democratic culture of the foundation. It was created to get the
members / contributors a voice and a say.
Fair enough =) good point - here are a few questions I came up
Please note - it is trivial to ask more questions in a few minutes than
can be answered in a lifetime - but here are a few things I'd love to
from each candidate:
What is the right list for that ? board-discuss I hope.
* many MC members say they want to expand the membership.
Given that LibreOffice is rather static in terms of its
number of those involved in development: coding, UX,
translation, documentation etc.
+ how do you plan to gain lots of new contributors ?
Don't need to be 'a lot'
+ Do you think we expand the membership by accpting
more marginal contributions for membership cf.
What's the 'more marginal contributions' meaning?
+ what effect do you expect that to have on the project ?
* If you've stood before, approximately how many people have
you encouraged to apply for membership ?
* How many applications have you voted against ?
* Do you believe we should have a half-way house / badge
between membership and non-membership that encourages
a person, and gives the a path via more contribution to
achieve full membership ?
* When there are no concrete metrics (such as translated strings,
code commits, wiki changes, ask comments, etc.) available to
decide on a person's contribution; what is best practice for
MC members vouching for their friends' contributions, and how
should other MC members validate that ?
* To what degree should the MC's decisions & discussion
be transparent (ie. publicly available) ?
Any relation to MC Open Letter?
* How do you believe we can improve the existing election
system - assuming the statutes can be tweaked ?
+ I'm interested in where we have the situation that
being too popular can stop you being able to
engage at all as a deputy - as we saw with
Miklos/Jona in the last MC election, and Kendy
in the last Board election.
'Too popular'? What about that tiny little issue callled affiliation?
