Since we are talking about a displinary process, my expectation is to
see a documented, open process that is as fair and balanced as we as an
organization can be.
I expect that the facts will be documented. I expect that the persons
making the decision will be as impartial as fully possible. I expect
that any decisons that contain adverse consequences to be well thought
out and documented.
When proposing to make changes to the process, I expect to see the
reasoning behind the changes. Frankly, all that I am seeing is
complaining about too much red-tape and endless meetings for a process
that hasn't even been used yet. I have gone back several times and
reread the process. There are places where I see that we can probably
make improvements, but I am failing to see endless meetings and red-tape
in the process.
A displinary process means that there are potential adverse consequences
involved. That means that in order to be fair and appear fair, that we
have to document. If members of the devrel team are unwilling to do
that, then frankly I don't want those members to be involved in the
displinary process. Is documenting things like this fun? No it is not,
but it is neccessary in this type of process.
Finally, to answer the inevitable question, yes I will step up to the
plate if asked to do so.
