GNOME Foundation board

Contrary to last year, I managed to remember in time to cast my vote in the GNOME Foundation elections.

In unrelated news, our country is now without government for half a year. This is less of a problem than my non-Belgian friends seem to believe it is, though.


  1. Duh! Thank you for reminder. You saved me dude: After all the noise this year, I post-poned to consider my decision – and nearly forgot to vote in the end. Duh…

  3. “In unrelated news, our country is now without government for half a year.”

    Well, it still has the Flemish government of course, and the government of the French speaking community, and the Walloon government, and the government of the German speaking community, and the government of the Brussels region. The only piece that is missing is a federal government.

    For our non-Belgian friends: please note that the laws that are decided at the federal level do not necessarily rank above the laws of the regional levels. Instead, all levels can make laws within their own competences.

    That’s just one of the reasons why this whole situation is not that much of a problem…

  4. The US state of Texas has in its constitution a provision that allows the legislature to meet for only 140 days (approximately five months) every two years unless called into special session. This is generally considered a Good Thing in Texas, where a strong government would be unwelcome. So we’re without a legislature until January 2009.
