I am in total agreement with these statements. The process was somehow
not well organized. Still, we managed to discuss it. We need to organise
these kind of thing a little formally as well as strategically next
time. This will ensure better results.

For sure - next time there will be more time for strategies. I'd suggest
to discuss what the next strategical topics might be for the website
team :)

( Imo communites like ours should be self-regulating 99% of the time -
there should be only very few circumstances where "regulation from top"
is needed.)



Thanks for the note André. I am still trying to get the feel for how the hierarchy works at LibO.

I have been taking part/lurking in many mailists and threads and one of my concerns are that, as we found here, there has been no real formal structure setup for the group membership. Voting on the CMS matter was there rendered ineffective.

May I suggest that the SC send out a call to all important groups/discussion topics that they now formalise their membership ranks through the Wiki?

For example, members who have a passionate interest in a group, website/marketing/UI/Logo/ etc (note that the SC would have to identify the categories) should be called on to register their ID's on the Wiki and start a Wiki page for their section with a link back to their members. The membership would be reviewed from time to time to cull the inactive members.

This would be a great first step as this would clearly identify the members interested and active on their respective teams. These members should then elect a spokesperson for their group.

This will make for more effective and focussed discussions. Membership voting is then rendered possible where needed and if a general "consensus" from the general membership vote is needed this is also possible.
