When I look at all the formats in the "Get Involved" website page, all
of the teams give an introductory "blurb" of their section and then
move the user to their wiki site.
Are you suggesting that you would rather do this on the website rather
than on the wiki? IMO, this would be better put on the wiki where the
QA membership could update the info along with all of the other
Well there are four reasons why we though on the website would be better.
a) The wiki is less "set" so doesn't give the same feeling (ie. anyone
can add or remove things), we really want to make it similar to the BoD
page where people who are very active get more of a standout thank you.
We agreed that this in general is a good thing, sometimes "a pat on the
back" and some acknowledgement goes a long way for projects where we're
not paid and often times not even thanked by those we help ;)
b) The page won't be updated much. This will be for people who we have
found to be particularly helpful, have contributed or are expected to
contribute a lot, have shown dedication, and are likely to be involved
going into the future. We do have the QA team wiki page but this we
update very frequently, if someone hops in the chat and shows a little
initiative we encourage them to add their name
c) The website might give a clearer picture to users as to who is the
"core team" & thus they can expect feedback from, vs. the wiki currently
has a mix of people who are "kind of involved" vs. people are who very
d) On a webpage it's much easer for us to write a professional blurb
about ourselves that isn't about LibreOffice at all. To build community
it's good to say "what we do outside of the project"
Otherwise, IMO, you would now be working on two QA sites at the same
time. I am not sure if the QA team membership would need updating
often, but the wiki would probably be the better route to take.
We could just have a link on the QA get involved page that says "meet
the core team" or some such thing. I don't see why this couldn't be a
model for other branches of LibreOffice as well.
