The Mageia Association met for its Associate General Meeting on the 1st of March with the intention of electing a new Board to govern Mageia, as per the Mageia Constitution.
The Board consists of 6 – 12 individuals that oversee the financials and running of the distribution on matters that are above the Mageia Council. The new Board consists of individuals from around the world that have all joined the Mageia project with the hope of creating a unique and successful distribution that continues the legacy of powerful flexibility and ease of use set out at the start of the project. The new Board members are as follows:
- Thomas Backlund (tmb)
- Jean-Baptiste Biernacki (jybz)
- Yves Brungard (papoteur)
- Bruno Cornec (bcornec)
- Neal Gompa (ngompa)
- David W. Hodgins (davidwhodgins)
- Nicolas Lécureuil (neoclust)
- Aurelien Oudelet (auroud85)
- Donald Stewart (schultz)
- Jean Michel Varvou (vouf)
- Pascal Vilarem (maat)
On top of this, a new executive committee was also elected by the new board, consisting of Chairman, Treasurer, and Secretary. These roles are fulfilled by Nicolas Lécureuil, Pascal Vilarem, and Aurelien Oudelet, respectively.
The board is now discussing how to promote Mageia in the coming year, and how to make the association stronger in the long run.
