- abstract and TOC present - feels a bit more professional
- purpose-drive and predictable, with the purpose being having fun - sound much more balanced then some other approaches, hopefully not "Fair and Balanced"
- "experience in implementing change in volunteer driven scenarios" - very precise definition of what we need
- flashback to last years platform - looks like some progress is done, but most of it is still relevant
- real-life meetings - Yes!
- small teams - isn't that just splitting Debian up into small, easier to manage chunks?
- more friendly environment - Teletuby alert?! Or should we just redirect all flamewars to the Sauna Cabal?
- accept more leadership - good
- more frequent and regular releases - please stop beating that horse. It is a fossil already. Does it really do as good as a project to have a release every year? Where is the stability in that?
- care more - we can't care less, can we?
- more resources - please elaborate, what do you mean by resources here? Global network of Debian approved anti-flamewar saunas?
- DPL Team - isn't that just another name for nontransparent cabal running Debian instead of a single nontransparent individual?
- set goals within teams to become purpose-driven - sounds good on the first glance, but would that not lead to segregation of purposes?
- DPL milestones - timeout callback for a DPL. Might help to have a reason to report even if nothing is done, just to convey that information based on set deadlines. On the other hand that is extra "paper"work
- "Important and/or controversial decisions are made in discussion with the whole team." - this seems to lack a critical part: "decisions are made by the DPL", because falling back to "our team decided" is just a lack of leadership and promotion of birocratcy and lack of responsibility.
Five word summary: purpose, RL meetings, team, schedules, resources
It looks very thought out, but is it just me or is it also becoming very birocratic?
Note: the promised interview is coming up tomorrow.
