Opening GUADEC 2013 today, Karen Sandler, GNOME Executive Director, announced that the Linux Foundation has become the latest member of GNOME's Advisory Board. The Advisory Board is a body of stakeholder organizations and companies who support the GNOME Project by providing funding and expert consultation. It includes IBM, Google, Intel and the Free Software Foundation, among others.
Speaking at the opening of GNOME's annual European conference (GUADEC), Sandler said: "We are excited to have the Linux Foundation join our Advisory Board, and look forward to working closely with them. Their membership in the Advisory Board is a recognition of the value that the GNOME Project brings to the GNU/Linux ecosystem, which is something that we hope to enhance even further in the future."
Joining the GNOME Advisory Board will give the Linux Foundation the organization a direct voice within the GNOME Project and will enable it to play a greater role in the future of GNOME.
