[ormf-dev] The plan and the way forward
As you all know the EF requires all teams to file an annual plan by
the end of September. This has caused B. and I to look very hard at
the state of the team, since the plan is of course directly linked to
the available resources. In consultation with our mentors we have
decided that the sensible thing to do is to create the plan based
solely on what B. and are able to deliver in the time period. We will
be following up this message with an outline of this plan in a few
days. It will be finalised before the deadline of EOM a week from today.
This does not mean that we do not desire your assistance, it simply
means that we have to make the commitments that we believe are
achievable come what may. Therefore all of the broad task
responsibilities will lie with B. and myself for the time being. To
make it easier for the entire team to become involved we will be
creating fine grained tasks in Bugzilla which any of you are welcome
to take ownership of as you feel you have the time to complete. Our
hope is that over time everyone will hit a stride and will be able to
make significant contributions to the project.
Please know that neither B. nor I (nor the mentors) are being at all
critical of the level of participation to date. We all understand that
life is full of hard choices, intrusions and ever changing
circumstances. Above all I want to say that I appreciate that each of
you put yourself forward to participate because you care about what we
are accomplishing. That in itself puts you in the one percentile of
the human race who declare that they want to make a difference. Thank
As always, any questions please holler.
