hereby I would like to announce my candidacy for a Board of Directors
seat at the Document Foundation.
My name is Alexander Werner, I'm 24 years old and live only a few
hundred meters away from Florian, who convinced me to run for for a
seat. I'm a physics student and run a small company on the side. I'm
also member of FroDev for years and auditor of a German registered
association that is active in the electronic sports area.
So I have quite an experience regarding German laws.
I was part of the OpenOffice.org community since fall 2007 when Florian
convinced me to join him at the Systems booth in Munich. Soon after that
I became member of OOoDev e.V. and was at one more Systems
(unfortunately the last one) and at every LinuxDay since then.
I was involved in LibreOffice and the Document Foundation from the very
beginning and helped to set up the infrastructure and wrote a little
tool for the mailinglists that parses mails and strips html content and
attachments and called it pymime.py.
Now I am member of the admin-team and the little tool PyMIME has grown
steadily. A complete rewrite is in the works and will provide enhanced
scalability as well as a webservice where attachments are available
after being striped from the original mail.
I run for a seat at the BoD because I strongly believe in the success of
FOSS, and the Document Foundation with its open and meritocratic
structure is the right place to support one of the largest and most
I think that both my technological as well as legal background will help
the Document Foundation. I am experienced with the sometimes restrictive
and rigorous German laws, but also understand the needs of a free
software developer. I hope that I will be able to mediate between these
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
