As all members of X.org should have noted in the meantime, it's election time again! After some efforts we actually do have more candidates than seats for the board of directors .
Some community members have asked a (rather large) number of questions, I have consolidated the answers I received in this wiki page. So far only three candidates replied, so for me at least the top three candidates are clear - it's better to vote for persons that do have an opinion and voice it, than for persons who prefer to stay quiet .
So go to members.x.org and vote!
