> In real life, I am a 33 year old "dual student" (meaning I work in

> Now about my Mageia life: I was joining the Mageia mls and irc

> I was elected its team leader.
> Next to that I was helping rda a bit on the website and I am in

> The reasons, why I apply for the board:
> I think, being a board member is an important task. You have to be

> Although I am more involved in the technical fields of the project

I support Oliver's candidature - aside from any perceived national
imbalance 8-), and his obvious talents, I'm impressed by the amount he
packs into his life! If you want something done, ask a busy person.

Oliver, if you burn out, you can always come and collapse at my place...
