Ticket #1177 (closed general: fixed)
Codify how we are going to select the working group members
|Reported by:||sgallagh||Owned by:|
We need to publicly decide how we are going to select the official membership of the working groups for the Fedora.Next/Products? implementation.
We want to be completely transparent about how this selection is taking place.
- Each working group should consist of an odd number of members not to exceed nine (to keep the groups small enough to be functional)
- Each working group should be comprised of no more than half (rounded up) of Red Hat employees. This is to avoid the misconception that Red Hat is dictating the planning here.
- No one should be selected to be on two working groups. The time commitment will likely be too much. We should encourage people who have volunteered for multiple groups to instead volunteer for the Common Base group.
We should set up range voting for each of the working groups and request that ONLY volunteers for those groups vote. In this way, FESCo can see a self-selected view of how the membership feels it should be made up. This will guide the decision more clearly and make it less of a FESCo-dictated decision. The final selection should be consistent with the above rules unless this is clearly impossible, in which case FESCo should use its best judgement.
