- Release coordinators:
Martin Baulig, Sander Vesik, George Lebl, Chris Lahey, Jonathan Blandford,
Peter Teichman and Dave Camp expressed interest in helping with the
GNOME 2.0 release, according to the discussions and plans that came out
of GUADEC. Also, Jody Goldberg wants to help on the office/apps part of it.
We selected Martin Baulig and Sander Vesik to take the lead on building
a Release Team and work with the folks who volunteered to put together a
GNOME 2.0 release plan. This will include a listing of all the top-level
tasks that need to be accomplished, along with preliminary due-dates for
each of these and a full committee roster with specific responsibilities
assigned to each team member.
We'd like to see quick progress on this, and have at least the committee
structure and responsibilities flushed out within 2 weeks.
It is relatively clear that the work of doing the release coordination
for GNOME 2.0 will be larger than what was needed for GNOME 1.4. We hope
that Martin and Sander will be able build a strong team covering the
various tasks needed, the following ones were listed (but the list is far
- PR coordinator
- documentation/QA coordinator
- library freeze
- UI freeze
- Membership policy:
The community had many opportunities to review it. There were no negative
feedback. So we adopt the proposal as GNOME Membership Policy 1.0
Interesting points discussed:
- we want the Gnome project to stay open to anybody who want to contribute
- Opening to the ISV community is okay but people should not just use it but
helping or contributing the project is still required to qualify.
