What is a Sub-Team

  • Group of people willing to help on a specific area.

  • Need to be active : It's essential that people of the team are active. It's not necessary to be active on a daily base, but a minimal participation is necessary, so we don't have 'ghost members' in the teams. It's better to leave the team temporary if we don't have time on the short-term, and enter it again after.
  • Participation can be done by members outside the team: of course, other people can help, without the need to be part of the team. For example, you can contribute on some Wiki pages without to be part of the Wiki Team. But, if you want to do more in a more organized approach, it's better to join that specific area/team, so you can coordinate with other members.
  • Free to organize themselves : each sub-team will be responsible to organize itself as a team with the help of each member of that sub-team according to the needs, to the tasks, etc. After all, each sub-team will work for the greater good of Ubuntu GNOME.
  • Keep everyone informed of any significant changes on the sub-team by use of the general mailing list and/or the mailing list of each Sub-Team because each Sub-Team has its own mailing list.

  • Please make sure to maintain a high level of internal communications with your team. For example, if you are going for vacation or leave, if you are busy with a project or Real Life, please leave a nice and gentle note to your sub team (each sub-team has its own mailing list) OR set an auto-reply on your email client.
