New User Group Proposal Process
By Jimgris-Oracle on Feb 20, 2008
We updated the OpenSolaris User Group proposal process in Advocacy. It's much easier. So, if you want some opensolaris.org infrastructure -- a project space and mailing list -- for your OpenSolaris User Group, just send a proposal to advocacy-discuss with the name of the user group, two or more initial participants listed with their OpenSolaris user IDs, and a one paragraph description of the group (including location, activities planned, related organizations, etc.) That's it. Easy. There are some voting items and such, but it's all spelled out at the bottom of the Advocacy CG front page and also at the bottom of the main user group page. Everything is based on based on the OpenSolaris Constitution and the OpenSolaris Governing Board's Project Instantiation Policy, but we streamlined the process for user groups so we can move faster.
