Streamlining Some Processes

The OpenSolaris community will be considering a new Constitution in a couple of weeks, and when this document is ratified it will mean some changes in how we manage the project. Overall, we are attempting to flatten and decentralize the community, simplify or remove processes, separate membership issues from development operations, and apply group creation processes equally to all. That last item is called the new Group Life Cycle Administrative Procedure, which will replace the group creation processes outlined in the current Constitution and in the Project Instantiation Policy. So, we want one procedure to create, change, archive, and reactivate all groups (Communities, Projects, User Groups). We hope this will reduce confusion for people who want to get infrastructure on the site to support work.

Currently, I`m managing the creation of the OSUG projects, and I`m staffing the project-setup alias and creating those projects as well. I`ll continue in those roles as we move to the new Constitution. The next OGB will have to create a board committee for the new group life cycle procedure, and I`ll work with that committee to help implement all this. Should be an interesting transition.

It will be if there are no OGB candidates :)

I hear Bush is looking for work these days. :) Nice job on the project process, by the way. I think it will work (if we work it, of course).
