Should Ubuntu Membership be a general requirement for MOTUship
Agenda item created by Jordan Mantha
Scott Kitterman likes the idea of MC being able to give out membership with becoming MOTU, but also before so that if someone meets the criteria for membership, but isn't ready to be MOTU yet. The generel idea is that Membership is a lower bar than MOTUship.
1) This should be a way of recognizing good work in MOTU without feeling like MOTUship needs to be granted.
2) It also allows the MC to see a candidate twice.
3) It gives them a better feel for the person before the MOTU application.
After further discussion a vote was called to order with the following question to be answered: "Should Ubuntu Membership be a general requirement for MOTUship?". The following are the results:
With this vote and its results, Ubuntu Membership is now a generel requirement for MOTUship. MC grant Membership before and up-to MOTUship.
Should we establish some "u-u-s days" to clear u-u-s queue as much as possible before release day
Agenda item created by Luca Falavigna
Emilio Pozuelo Monfort suggested: It was every Monday for REVU days, we could do the same for u-u-s now that we are not doing REVU. On the other hand, putting them on Mondays would mean it's just until Hardy is released... so a different day would be a good idea to get it continued in Intrepid. This was generally accpeted by the others. Jordan Mantha added things we need:
- 1) date
- 2) to do list
- 3) MOTUs around to clear the queue
- 4) promotion and energy
Furthermore we thought about a name for it and several ideas came up: "MOTU Hug days", "Sponsorship Days", "Hug dholbach day", "Ubuntu love days". But in the end we agreed that the name isn't that important.
After further discussion a vote was called to order with the following question to be answered: "Should we establish one "u-u-s day" to clear u-u-s queue as much as possible before release day?". The following are the results:
With this vote and its results, the motu team accepted to establish a single "u-u-day".
