We had a nice long discussion during the Project Meeting in IRC today,
minutes are below:
Feedback was given about the timing of the merger, the nature of the
announcements, and the lack of a broader discussion in the Project
before the decision to merge the two rolling releases.
sysrich (Richard Brown) explained that these issues were caused by a
desire to have the situation clear for Tumbleweed users before the
release, mixed in with unavailability caused by travel surrounding
sysrich apologised, accepted the feedback, and agreed that standard
practices should have been followed like involving the News team
before making the announcement and starting a discussion/heads up to
the opensuse-factory mailinglist at the earliest opportunity.
* News/Marketing Teams
It was suggested that the News and Marketing Teams should be merged.
Arguments against this include the fact that the whole point of the
News team is to allow private news items to be discussed before they
go public, whereas the Marketing team operate in the public.
However, this did raise the issue that both teams and many of our
other 'non-technical' areas of contribution seem to be lacking lately,
and ideas were discussed on how to get more people enthusiastic,
contributing, and (also very importantly) contributing to the right
areas where the Project needs it most
