Subject Re: Nominations for a new PMC Chair
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2015 10:47:35 GMT
I hereby nominate

Jürgen Schmidt (jsc)
He has been involved in every major openoffice development for a decade or
He was my mentor when I joined AOO, and without his mentoring I would not
have been here.
Jürgen has been involved in all aspects of openoffice and later Apache
OpenOffice including being release
manager for several releases.
His will to help shape the future of AOO is to be seen in most of his mails.

Louis Suarez-Potts.
Louis has been involved in openoffice forever.
Before openoffice became AOO, he was deeply involved in community building,
something a chair should focus on.
Louis has not been so active lately, but I have no doubt that the future of
AOO (and opensource in general) is a major driving force for him.
