2013 Gentoo Foundation Inc. Secretary's Report


1.  Introduction

I am pleased to report that in general the Gentoo Foundation is doing well. This year was my first to update the members list. To keep our members list current, members are removed if they do not vote for two consecutive elections. The list as of the recording date of 2013-05-19 is 113 members, down from 242. Comparing two results in 142 drops, 13 adds. Another first for me was initiating the Trustee election. An excellent asset for my duties is the Foundation Activity Tracker put together by Richard Freeman and maintained by the trustees. This tracker is a reminder of important dates and to document the process.
