The reasons to be elected

  • Take part in Sugar Architecture implementation.
  • In the [current] situation when development process scattered between several sugar providers and there is no compact team of doers who work closely on [even, not to mention sugar strategy] sugar development. Such close team can be organized only around educators (Core Team), i.e., around original Sugar purposes. The rest of Sugar infrastructure should be restructured to make it more flexible, responsive, and centered around the Core Team.
