As described in http://meego.com/about/governance we have a TSG that
has range of responsibilities also includes creating and dissolving
working groups to support the fulfillment of the project objectives,
appointing subsystem maintainers and operational leaders, setting
technology vision, and defining policies and compliance programs. No
objection here as I believe there has to be someone making a final
word in discussions where a decision is being made.
I have some questions that hopefully help to get the ball rolling on
some issues - I hope that someone in the know, perhaps even Imad or
Valtteri will answer with exact information.
Currently enthusiasts for MeeGo only hear the sound of crickets when
arriving to the project, even though there is non-code related
community projects that can start.
We need to show newcomers there's an actual project going on - right
now it feels a bit like there's no approachability to the TSG or the
project governance, which is not what it should be in the long term,
hence my questions.
First off, it is not clear who is exactly in the TSG. Is this Imad &
Valtteri or do they organisationally sit on top of TSG?
If they organisationally sit on top of TSG, how is TSG chosen (I
understand there might be an initial one chosen already, question is
for the 'next TSG', and will this selection also include non-technical
merit such as community work?
When will the first public TSG meeting start and will they be held in
#meego-meeting on FreeNode IRC?
What will be the method of adding items to the agenda for a TSG
meeting (WG creation, getting opinions about issues, solving disputes,
etc)? I suggest items on the agenda should be available a week before
the meeting, in public, in order to give everyone the possibility to
familarize themselves with the issues before meeting.
I wouldn't mind in the name of transparency to have some proper
procedures for MeeGo governance written down so it's clear what can be
expected of TSG and community, methods to resolve issues, processing
