Hi Tom,

We should take notice that although there were a few founders that were/are female none of those 
have stood for election.  All BoD members are white, well educated and male.  Luckily there seems 
to be some diversity in ethnicity or at least in the countries people come from.

well, I don't think this is a TDF problem. No one can doubt that we are open, independent from gender, nationality and color of skin. IMHO, this openness and how TDF members should treat each other is even in our statues. If you are aware of any case where people were treated unfairly, feel free to directly ping me offlist, so we can investigate.

And about elections: Sophie is female, and she has been elected into the MC. :-)

I really think that we as a group, as a project and a community can grow together and get to know each other much better if we use all means of communication, including video. I think everyone here is respected, no matter how she or he looks.
