For the present, you need to take account of the fact that work on the
website is currently being led by a four-person team: myself for
content, Ivan and Christoph as regards design (CSS, graphics), and
Christian. Therefore, these people have to be in agreement about the
decisions on developing the site.
Oh so you four guys are the LibreOffice website decision-makers?
And the rest have to work as bidden, against their professional judgment?
Nice. And completely meritocratic too.
In turn, we implement the guidelines
and decisions of the SC. The SC is the final owner of the site, in its
role as custodian and federator of the community.
Therefore, no action or decisions are possible without consulting all
of the above people, with the SC having final veto.
You can certainly approach the SC and request a change as regards the
four-man team. For that, the best thing would be to come up with a
document laying out your ideas, and then to request an agenda item
before an SC meeting, so that the issue can be discussed and voted on
at the following meeting. In that case, you should be there at the
meeting, and I think you'd probably be asked to vocally present your
Is it not for the leadership to lay down the vision and drive it?
Why have this "come with your idea and let me see if I like it" attitude?
We are not even following the website design principles.
The checklist proves how half-baked this project is.
But the SC will, in any case, always be the ultimate owner and
decision-taker as regards the website. That's the way it is and, in my
opinion, the way it should be.
Is this autocratic or meritocratic?
Guys, it would be so much better if we could move on past these
discussions about the raison d'être of the website team.
So it appears you never endorsed the agenda for the conference call?
It would be
so much easier to possibly achieve a good number of the things you
want, if we could work together contructively as a team and committed
members of the project, putting our support behind the project
governance and making a positive net contribution to the project.
How can we have governance when we have self-appointed leaders who don't want to consult others
and a superpower with veto?
