Currently the DevRel team may be composed by people that are in either the Recruiters, the Undertakers or in both projects. That is not the same as saying that DevRel = Recruiters + Undertakers. For starters, joining Recruiters or Undertakers doesn't make you a DevRel member. Also, the reason we currently have the match is that all Recruiters and Undertakers have with time been asked to join DevRel, that the Ombudsman, later disputer resolutions team, was extinct and that other members not part of Recruiters or Undertakers have dropped the team. In my talks with Petteri about creating the Community Relations project, merging DevRel and UserRel, our plan was to create a dispute resolutions team again to make it clear that it is a distinct body from recruiters, undertakers and any other project under Community Relations. The important point here is that the skill set required for these are not necessarily the same. One might be a great Recruiter and not have the best mindset for being a dispute resolution member. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections / RelEng -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJOTHE9AAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEPx6AQAJxa86qVQwYktvaT+CKMpBWK 8rHQSgYsPY8/8jhfBPt4WDsIUt/0lskhbDmbx57CVEpGA1rNF8Fbm6TGDv9VUTkS SjWRvk3EIBRKKB43CN2SUQs8N79T/CBYreJLXz1Ont5mLRCQfSesGIVfnCHFZW+B ys34WUarA2ZJZZtpA7+60U2ZLXmrYipptL2eZmWrawLZHooedEcwO0bC6YrYoeM4 XOvyCp4bmZwPEBwbOpHzNXjMfNbwVrZOVYVVHXtRcOplRYjFvMLcDh1m6OwZ6IY4 V7urVU0+cZBDKfO4okWMSL/5sCXrV6JzG1IvUTh5yB0j/ZUTD16Ve7UB+XlPoLTA VVDGRvqJj4+pI1Fu4wVbv7sVWxMmA6m8qGzdSFVfFlpxKd/YNJKoXBYSKtaZQmfM uB5+DF/LLxxukpJU/6ljImSubvHUjDsIptrUgKozomfaAw556/IcVCh1o+zD0OlK aqueFHcl8p9YGqJ5UBpwTqGr9U57zyeVBWLc6mX70GKAFdM1a3m27Y9tgxXpi5bU c2w18VYdwk6MZFhdesftr6BdWP3laohFinWHlAhpdQzTUVagB65IsFs9oAk6d0TQ KJXYkQHACfDxJMZXe6Pu7eEchFgelEmnooaQZ2BH0EsPn+pcmpsQeGXosJa8LRM2 kIRoyfnsd+V2TlEBvpGu =BHAi -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
