After much discussion, we're finally ready to
bring together these
important bits of information into a cohesive statement that everyone
can unify around. As such, we, the members of the Strategy Team, will be
meeting in Nuremberg the weekend of May 28th to formalize a draft of our
strategy that will be available publicly for open discussion and comment.
First, I'm really glad to see this happening: it's something that was
very much needed, and I certainly have high expectations now :-)
Do you have an idea how the discussion and comments around the draft
will be handled? I just want to be sure we know how we'll process them
before we get them -- for example, what happens if we get some strong "I
Of course, I'd love to read the non-formalized draft, but that just me
being curious ;-) It's good to have a small group come with a proposal
as a first step.
We definitely plan to open up the process as we go along. As you've
identified, starting initiatives with a small group helps keep the
process fluid in its initial stages. but its time we broadened our
scope to allow people to start to comment and give their opinions.
The disagreement comments are important, perhaps I would dare to say
even more important than agreement comments. Understanding the concerns
our community has and addressing them is paramount to ensuring that
whatever strategy we come up with has good community-wide buy in.
Otherwise, the strategy statement is just simply text printed on a wiki
It will be a changing and, hopefully, enlightening time for us all as we
start to give openSUSE as a project real direction that everyone can
unify under. This is not to say that we don't have good unity now, but
unity can always be made stronger. :-)
For more information about our work, please feel
free to review our
documents at http://en.opensuse.org/Documents
. And we'll be sure to keep
you informed of our progress results from this exciting retreat.
Should we feel free to edit those documents? Or should we send feedback
by mail, on IRC, etc.?
As we have collected massive amounts of data all over, and data can get
jumbled too easily, I would suggest simply sending your comments via
email. If you feel your edits/comments warrant community discussion,
feel free to post here on -project. If you prefer not to speak publicly
(we respect that), you can send directly to board(a)opensuse.org.
I'd probably need to read everything a second time
(first read was
definitely interesting), but one thing that looked completely
wrong/off-topic was this line in SWOT about "Novell - openSUSE
is a complete failure, LSB is a dead horse, lack of
will, too much corporation, etc.
What's the link between fd.o or LSB and Novell or openSUSE?
This is all really just raw data that we gathered up via research
assignments or in brainstorming sessions when we would state what we
"hear" as common arguments for or against, real or perceived, openSUSE
in the wild. Nothing in the SWOT is a formal declaration.
Les gens heureux ne sont pas pressés.
We welcome everyone's comments over the next week and we actually look
forward to hearing from you all in the community.
