Community Council

Developer Membership Board

Developer Membership Board meeting 2011-09-12 19:00 UTC

Chair: Stéphane Graber Present: Jono Bacon, Michael Biena (DMB), Jonathan Carter, Benjamin Drung (DMB), Micah Gersten (DMB), Scott Kitterman, Cody Somerville (DMB)

Administrative matter: Review of re-staffing poll results

Micah Gersten is the winner of the poll. Result forwarded to the TB.

Administrative matter: Review of the Ubuntu Developer Survey results

It's been discussed that one of the major problems is the lack of documentation, Jono will ask Daniel to work on improving the layout of the existing documentation and Cody will work on documenting how to endorse someone.

We'll continue discussing the report at our next meeting.

Administrative matter: Package sets

We've been discussing our current package sets documentation and how to improve it as well as the way of handling changes.

As a first step, stgraber will put online the list of all package sets and their content for all supported series.

Additional documentation will likely have to be done on the wiki to document the reason for each of them, the associated team and the reason and criteria for the package list.

Next meeting

The next meeting is scheduled for 2011-09-26 14:00 UTC (Chair: micahg)
