From Sugar Labs
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Pre-conference community meetup

  • Bernie gives an overview of the current state of Sugar Labs:
    • infrastructure (servers, services, etc.) in in place
    • mode of governance has been established
    • getting away from the old mindset (thinking like a company, asking for permission before doing something)
    • show me the code, we will support you but you should do things yourself
    • SugarLabs is a community not a company
    • more developers are needed
    • people should be pointed to
    • a few thousand dollars have been collected via individual donations
    • no success in getting grants so far
    • Sugar Labs has no employees, should work like the Gnome foundation, people getting paid by companies who want Sugar to suceed
  • in the larger context SugarLabs should be responsible for high-levels decisions and setting the framework for activities
  • focus on setting up Local Sugar Labs, direct contact to educators and other relevant parties in their respective communities
  • Remora as a central hub for activities (downloads, reviews, etc.); should be available in a couple of weeks
  • Collaboration:
    • (as previously also discussed on the mailing-list) it would be good to have a minimum-level of collaboration in all activities in the form of a view-only mode
    • activities should also declare a max. number of collaborators, any additional users who join are automatically connected in a view-only mode
