The next round of FSF board candidate discussions will start on July 24

by Free Software Foundation Contributions Published on Jul 20, 2023 01:36 PM

The FSF board has chosen a second round of candidates as part of its board process. All eligible associate members can participate in this discussion to get involved in the FSF's ongoing search for new board members.

  • Luis Guzm├ín
  • Maria Chiara Pievatolo
  • Markus Schmidt
  • Jason Self

As documented in the board process, the FSF associate members are invited to discussions considering these candidates in the nominee discussion forum.

This discussion round will open on July 24 and is planned to close six weeks later. Participants must pledge to abide by the participation agreement.

According to the board process outline, eligible discussion participants are current associate members who were already members (or donated a comparable amount) between 2018-01-19 and 2022-10-19.

After the discussions of these candidates, the voting members will decide which other candidates to discuss and, from time to time, take final votes on some of them; but not necessarily all of the candidates. For more information about the FSF board and the nomination process, see

We look forward to learning more about whether these candidates would add to the FSF board.
