What will I be doing, should I get elected?

TDF and the Libreoffice project have already come a long way since
their birth less than a year ago. As a developer I will represent
that part of the community, but I will also try to help grow the
channels of communication between developers and other parts of the
project. Being responsible for the complete product on the Ubuntu
platform, I firmly believe all parts of the project are not only
important, but also need a shared vision of what needs to be
accomplished to create an even better product.

As it is always hard to put such abstract topics down in a few
sentences, the above is just a short overview. However, just two days
ago, somebody who I highly regard for his skills in open source software
project management put in words most of what I was trying to say -- as
bluntly as usual.

Here is the interview (with Linus Torvalds):

Best,

Bjørn, the following is not  intended as a swipe at you personally, but I
must say that the introduction of the Unity UI on Ubuntu has not been the
sort of thing that I should like to see occur on LibreOffice. My impression
is that objections from users have been disregarded in a cavalier manner,
and that we were faced with an attitude of my way or the highway. Not
encouraging....
