Dear Foundation Members,

I currently maintain the java-atk-wrapper and I have been an accessibility
contributor at GNOME since 2013. I would like to put my hat in for the
directors election this year, because I believe that GNOME is in a great
position to set the bar for GNU/Linux desktop accessibility and more
generally, I feel I am able to contribute progressive ideas towards
developing GNOME’s infrastructure with a view to helping it grow as an
autonomous non-profit organisation.

An atmosphere where the contributors are made to feel supported and valued,
is one that is more able to constructively motivate productivity; so as an
elected director, I would strive to best represent your views by being
open, direct, approachable, communicative and accountable in seeking
feedback on matters which may arise throughout the term.

Please feel free to fire any questions you may have about my candidacy to
the list and I will do my best to answer comprehensively.

GCompris Fundraiser

The work on unified graphics for GCompris was completed in the time allocated by the fundraiser. Here is a video to show the result.

15% of the goal was funded, so not all of the work could be completed in the time proposed. But there are updates to all the core components, the main menu with all the activities icons and a good bunch of activities.

Finishing the remaining activities

Timothée Giet will keep working on GCompris in his spare time. There’s still a large amount of work to do. If you want to help, please read the guidelines and take a look at the work already done. Then contact the development team on IRC (#gcompris channel on freenode) for some guidance to get started.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this work possible!
