I talked to many different contributors and mostly they simply do not
know that there is something like a membership and also do not have any
interest in another mail address and ask what are their gains in getting
into the club.
Still not really a clue what they advantages are.
* Libreoffice.org e-mail
* Able to vote and get voted for.
- However currently not interested being active in MC
- Voting on people I don't really know. So can't really asses their quality
They formal task of MC not that spectacular and the informal tasks don't
go about strategic decision either
So voting for MC which doesn't have big role (not saying irrelevant).
Except MC members maybe move up to BoD
I wouldn't really mind if they sitting MC would recruit the new MC
members themselves (co-option)
Maybe they know even better who are capable or not.
I don't get the feeling to having more influence by being a member or not.
They membership is more a TDF organizational/governmental requirement
(so needed for TDF perspective) instead for they members being member.
TDF needs they members to have a group who can vote and be voted for. To
prevent outsiders to get control over TDF (MC/BoD)
They only advantage for the members themselves is maybe a role at TDF.
Or to show affiliation / association with TDF.
Might have hoped for some more strategical information (in a role of a
members) . Some 'inside' information. Some exclusivity.
There is not even a roadmap for what to expect for next release. Say
what project planning is; I mostly assume devs working towards something.
So some kind of planning. If it's simplification of code or new feature.
Not that I want to pin people on deadlines or whatever. But to get some
impression what's playing.
It's still a kind of black box.. Release plan filled after being
finished. Their is for example the jumbo sheet project; it's still at
experimental (for good reason). However no clue what the targeted time
Especially after it got announced in Release notes for 7.0. To silence
they angry mob for now. Not that it's actually stable or usable. But no
clue about what the idea currently is.
They "Marketing in Vendor Neutral FLOSS Projects" could have been
discussed internally with members (before being posted online).
Or they whole discussion on marketing strategy (Personal Edition). If
there is a place where they discussion should be, it's at member level.
I still prefer some secrecy. Not everything should be argued en public..
transparency is nice but not everything. Exclusivity is also a thing.
Still love a non-public forum like of thing for members only. [Please
not as mailing list]. And would make it possible to communicate/ share
thoughts a bit more freely/openly.
They board could post some (provocative) question/ insight. And members
given the ability to react. Even a member could start a discussion.
It's the BoD who has the ultimate say. Consulting they MC. Both must
make up their minds based upon the members input (and maybe weighting
some other concerns like profit of eco-system partners)
They MC needs to be their to be consulted and to give advice to they
BoD. With ultimately they impeachment card.
So Marketing plan shouldn't be posted on public mailing list, before
they members are consulted. Only the 'accorded' version should go public
(fiat from BoD/MC) after members got consulted.
They public response could still make it necessary to adjust. But there
was an internal discussion in advance. Instead of they Personal Edition
They members could also get some more details/regular updates on they
research for say commercial route.
This would give membership some actual advantage, I think.
