Might I remind you that we are talking about the furture of this project and NOT about the personal behaviour of some people? frankly spoken, I don't see much of that.
Let me state some facts here that I was invited to share in a closed forum environment, which I will not do:
1) The Servers and different webspaces are located with people who are dedicated to
Website baker and not any faction or fork candidate
2) From what I gather this part of the infrastructure will stay dedicated to WebsiteBaker
And now my thoughts about the future:
As you have all seen my proposed Organization for the WebsiteBaker Community I will elaborate a bit more on that:
The should be leaders team which consists of 3 people. My proposed areas are "Community", "Development" and "Infrastructure / Operation"
The Community Team needs to cover all the work which has to do with community work (e.g. Forum, User meetings). Additionally that Team should cover Marketing and Press.
In the Development Team all work regarding the development of WebsiteBaker, split into core and core add-ons, as well as template- and add-on testing to ensure the quality of the official released materials. Also programming work for the different WebsiteBaker Sites should be covered there.
I bet you guessed it already, the Servers, Webspace and everything will be managed within the Infrastructure Team. They will do all the administration work. This team will also propose changes to the server and software infrastructure.
Now a couple of the tasks at hand here will require cross team work, which is something that will be ensured by the leaders. The leaders will also jointly decide on the direction (short and long term) and major changes. They will delegate some of the work required for fact finding to team members. The final decision on everything will lie in the hands of the leaders team ant not anybody else!
Now obviously you ask yourself how the community comes into action here ... i would expect the community to make suggestions to either the team members or the leaders team, whom will then have to act on this. As you can imagine suggestions like "I want this one to be chucked out
" will be dismissed entirely.
Suggestion we do expect are:
- External Scritps to be included
- Marketing Operations
- User Meetings
- New functions to be created
- Team member proposals
Also finished code (bugfixes, new functons, etc.) should be suggested for inclusion.
Please, let us all work on this instead of this bitching around ...
PS: please excuse my abuse of code and qoute for highlighting ...
