12 Black magik. Encouragement of ideas such as project updates, at least
13 some support and/or contributions to those who work on other
14 Gentoo-based distros, taking their ideas and contributions into the
15 tree, etc, etc. One possible idea would be to encourage people to use
16 one channel for primary communications, currently, many people make
17 decisions (in private?) on IRC, then "forget" to tell everyone else
18 about the decision... If we were all encouraged to make decisions on
19 relevant email aliases, on the right mailing list, etc, etc, there
20 would be less people missing out. The -project, -dev-announce and -dev
21 setup we've got at the moment seems to be a start in the right
22 direction from what I can see so far. It does require more time to wear
23 in before it can really be seen as a success or a failure.
24 > 4) What is the timescale for doing it
25 This depends on who is involved with the efforts, who agrees, who wants
26 to bring up (potentially) silly arguments, etc, etc. It's not really
27 possible to set a deadline for something when you don't know who you
28 will be working with.
29 > 5) What experience do you have with this or a similar role
30 I'm the lead of the Gentoo/*BSD team, the Gentoo/Alt ATs and the Bugday
31 team. The latter two teams do require quite a bit of user interaction,
32 which could be useful for the implementation of some of my ideas.
33 > 6) Why do you think you are qualified
34 Hrm, how different is this question to the question above? Meh. Well, I
35 suppose I am quite vocal - I speak to people a lot. I'm involved with a
36 local LUG. See answer to question above...
37 > 7) How you plan to balance a council role with your current Gentoo
38 > role
39 Council will take precedence over most/all of my other roles. I will
40 probably also be dropping out of some of the teams/projects where I
41 have been relatively inactive.
42 > 8) How much time can you dedicate to the council role
43 Hmm. Well, around 7.5hrs a day if needs be. I should be able to pull
44 out more hours from the hat, dependant on my school timetable for the
45 next academic year.
