Gentoo Foundation - 2010 Elections - Manifesto of dabbott
My background is not in computer science but in the management of people and
organization to provide the tools and manpower to get goals accomplished. My day
job is a Golf Course Superintendent. I have been in this business for close to
30 years, but I got started very young :). I have been an avid Gentoo user for
close to Seven years. I just recently joined the ranks as a Gentoo Developer /
Staff Member, soon to be Full Dev, I hope, see bug # 275724.
Communication Communication Communication
Continue to demand transparency all matters of the Foundation. Do my part in
keeping track of items that must be addressed, keeping the foundation web page
up to date so everyone can be kept up to date. Provide a meeting agenda that is
easy to follow and keep track of all old business and add new business as requested.
Institute better recording of the actions undertaken by trustees on official
business. The details themselves may contain confidential information, but a
summary of those actions is certainly an option.
Progress in terms of the financial state of the Foundation - acquire the
services of an accountant and/or CPA, we need to pay someone so someone is
accountable to keep the records up to date and report directly to the Foundation
Technical Organization Structure
A web application to organise and keep records of all foundation decisions,
emails recieved and status, and much more to make management of the Gentoo
Foundation less time consuming.
