7 As a last-minute candidate, I accept.
9 I originally had no intention of running, but given the lack of
10 candidates on the slate, I'd like to throw more weight behind Antarus's
11 ideas of formally outsourcing the legal & financial business behind
12 running the Foundation, as a prerequisite of being able to cleaning shut
13 down or continue the Foundation as an entity.
15 If you don't believe that is an achievable goal, or disagree with that
16 direction, please rank reopen_nominations above me!
18 To the above end, Antarus asked about formal fund-raising initiatives.
19 I don't think Gentoo has ever undertaken full formal fund-raising,
20 because it was always seen as blocked by the legal/financial concerns.
22 I have personally tried to do some informal fund-raising in my role as
23 treasurer or infra lead, reaching out to potential sponsors (mostly on
24 the infra side), either by email or when at conferences. That is how the
25 ARM64 access came about, and how some of our hardware has
26 been updated (like OpenGear's replacement console servers some years
27 ago). I have some emails out for infra 10GBit switchgear as a result of
28 the recent OpenStack conference, as the vendors asked me to get back to
29 them in July, so I'll see what might happen there.
