The mission of the oversight board is to ensure that the Sugar Labs community has clarity of purpose and the means to collaborate in achieving its goals. (See Sugar_Labs/Governance)

The Oversight Board

The current oversight board members are:


  • slobs AT lists.sugarlabs.org - A private list for the Oversight Board members; all emails that do not ask to be private (or are not obviously intended to be private) will be forwarded to the publicly archived IAEP list.
  • ombudsman AT sugarlabs.org - A neutral party with whom anyone (member or non-member) may consult privately. The ombudsman will report to the Oversight Board and the community each month that a consultation occurs. Bert Freudenberg was Ombudsman. We are in the process of finding a new Ombudsman. In the meantime, feel free to contact off-list any member of the oversight board in confidence.


We meet on IRC at 19:00 UTC on the first Friday of each month (irc.freenode.net #sugar-meeting).
