A Vote of Approval

On Monday the OGB voted to approve the first two parts of the draft community simplification document. I've been talking about this for quite a while. Now that this decision is made, our webapp development team can move on to finishing the applications that will not only make up the core of the new opensolaris.org but will also support the SCM migration. Working on that team and the restructuring project will now also take up the vast majority of my time over the next few months. I'm looking forward to it. It will involve some engineering management, some content management, and an enormous amount of communications with the community. Lots of learning, too. Cool.

It is all very well to define the new group structure and relationship. I have a few questions:

(1) What happen to the existing structure, i.e. are the existing status be transfered over to the new equivalent roles?

(2) Will some of the inactive (existing) groups be dissolved during the transition?

(3) Will the new structure create more or less groups?
(I would hope to see smaller number of bigger groups)

Ghee .. the existing roles will be moved over to the new roles automatically. I think the reorg will be an opportunity to clean up inactive groups (or to activate them) but as of yet we don't have a specific plan to consider that and drive it from the OGB. I comes up from time to time, though. And I don't think the new structure will promote more or less groups, to be honest. My goal is to make creating and running groups easier, but that doesn't necessarily mean that many new groups will be created. We will have to see how the community naturally reacts.
