"On Tuesday, June 24th, Daniel Robbins announced a new
management structure for the Gentoo Linux project. This new
structure is designed to improve management, coordination and
communication issues in the Gentoo project. The structure is
composed of several key elements, including:
"Improved communication through the creation of regularly
scheduled meetings amongst the management team. Currently, meetings
are held on an ad-hoc basis which may cause gridlock in the
communications channels and decision making process.
"Delegated authority by clearly defining roles within the
Gentoo project and assigning managers who are responsible for those
particular areas. These 'top-level' managers will be drawn from the
current development team and will have complete authority over
day-to-day decisions within their particular area(s). Additionally,
decisions which cross multiple areas within the project will be
decided on by the management team as a whole, rather than just one
or two people.
"Improved accountability by ensuring that everyone on the team
knows who is responsible for a particular area. Projects without a
clear owner can often stagnate or get dropped through the cracks
because people do not know who to ask questions of. This new
structure will ensure that everyone understands who is responsible
for large projects within Gentoo Linux..."
