I have no idea who will be nominated for this year's Board. I know I will
not run, and I know I have no current plans to nominate anyone.
That said, I feel we should have more Directors from the Global South. Last
year, I myself chose, in my votes, to put a high priority on that.
I did not vote solely on that basis, in fact, I found only a subset of such
candidates "amazingly compelling" and others merely good. But I also chose
not to "spend" my votes on some candidates who were, like myself, in
comparatively privileged social positions... Notwithstanding that many of
them are likewise amazingly dedicated to the Python community.
I was somewhat disappointed that a couple of the candidates I so favored
lost by very narrow margins to other great folks who are probably more
familiar to the existing PSF membership. Everyone on the Board now, and
historically, is committed and remarkable. But perhaps others share my
values on this and will want to think of that one the actual candidates
(Old, white, cismale, straight, neurotypical, middle-class, American,
