Hi all, I've been following the discussion of how to improve on the list, and I'd very much like to help. At the PSPS, the talk that inspired http://dev.plone.org/plone/ticket/7816 that I heard was partially about helping the community understand the Framework Team. It's also clear though that the team itself also needs a little bit of organizational overhaul, as the discussion on the list has documented (and which Martin wonderfully summarized on the ticket).
I'm hoping that both these goals can complement one another. It sounds like a lot of what is needed internally is documentation and formalization, both of which can help the rest of the community understand the team better and see where they can fit in. To move this along, I'd like to, with some help, play journalist. At the PSPS, someone suggested a Framework Team blog, and I'm happy to set that up and write up what I learn about how the team currently works and what's being proposed to improve it. Wherever we keep the blog could also house a schedule and maybe some static documents about the agreed upon process for the team. The goal, to me, is to simplify things for team members and to clarify things for newcomers to the community who want to participate. Having some centralized sources of information about how things work and what's going on should help, I hope. To me, this team in particular is one of the really bright spots of Plone, and so I'd like to do whatever I can to help it run more smoothly and help the rest of the world know how cool it is that we have things like peer review and a real process (even if it could use some tightening up) for improving Plone. I also know that the participants have a great deal of knowledge and consistently good judgment (otherwise they wouldn't be here), so I greatly appreciate any suggestions and ideas that I can help facilitate. Thanks and I look forward to feedback and more ideas. ~Matt
