Hi Martin,

If Walter gave you the GNU Cash file I sent him before my leaving the 
board, that has most things properly accounted for up until ~mid-Nov 
2020.


It should not be surprising that "legal" is so high as SL had a large 
expense to become its own organization and then apply for NPO status.


As for receipts, Alex Perez should have access to those. (I never 
received them myself).


I am sorry you are having a bad experience. Thanks for your help thus 
far.

Agreed.  Many people are inbox fixated.  When working with those who
aren't willing to satisfy your fixation, there are alternatives.

Add a Wiki account, add e-mail address to it [1], set "Email me when a
page or a file on my watchlist is changed" then add the Minutes page
to your Watchlist [2].

Yeah, too hard.

AFAIK there are no proposed motions to be considered at this meeting. 
This should leave ample time for a
financial report and a report from the Translations Community Manager - 
specifically providing an update on the status
of the Yoruba project. Last meeting we gave ourselves the task to 
appoint a Financial Manager. We need to discuss how this

is to be accomplished.

I do not think that SLOB should be bothered with motions about which
methods of donation are permitted, and which are currently
implemented. That is a matter for Conservancy to decide and its Member
Projects should allow for funds to be accepted to their earmarked
funds with any of those methods; and it is up to the project's members
to implement the methods.

> (2) Such a fund-raising activity should have a target amount. As far as know

I agree that  fund-raising activity should have a target amount.

You posted a motion on June 4th:

"to undertake a fund raising drive. Arrangements will be made to
enable on-line contributions by PayPal, debit or credit card or other
means. Once the means to make contributions is in place, the Financial
Manager will initiate and lead the drive. The Sugar Labs web site will
show progress in donations toward the goal."

This was not seconded.

Lionel then called for motions to be minimised.

I therefore expect to carry out fund raising activities without making
motions to SLOBs for approval, and without a Finance Manager
appointed, since it seems no one at SLOBs is interested in giving
meaningful feedback on either motions about fund raising or about the
FM position.

I will take into account feedback offered to me by other members.

No, we haven't heard from her. I have now taken the liberty of posting
the 2 motions with my suggestions which she did not review.

I am not sure what is going on here. We already voted on the GSoC Stipend

I have heard nothing further from Caryl (or Adam, who was the one objecting
to some of the reporting language in the version of the proposal we
discussed last month).

There are a few other "motions" kicking around that I am trying to get a
handle on before tomorrow.

Hi, Walter

I hope Chris Leonard's report will include the present status of his 
arrangements with the Conservancy (is he officially on board, has he 
been paid his stipend for May or for June? I would also like the report 
to include the present status of the Nigerian project. In particular was 
the first milestone met (setup) and payment made?


I am opposed to the second motion in the agenda.

I hope that Adam or someone will be able to report on our financial 
'month' with starting balance, revenue and expenses during the period, 
and ending balance.


My objections are:

(1) The only method to implement a donation is to write a paper check 
and send it to the Conservancy. There is an attempt to provide a 
'donate' option to the Sugar Labs website, but I believe it has not been 
implemented.


(2) Such a fund-raising activity should have a target amount. As far as 
know this goal has not been set.


(3) I have no problem requesting each member to make a donation in an 
amount they can afford. However, I strongly object asking members to 
identify themselves as not having the means to make a donation of a 
specfied amount. A statement like 'In order to meet our financial goal 
for the year, members should try to donate at least $50 although 
donations in any amount are welcome' would be acceptable.


(4) We could identify donors of say $100 or more as sponsors or partners 
or associates or sustaining members, There are many such designations 
available.
The 'prominent placement' and 'release codename' are not acceptable 
without clarification.


According to Dave Crossland, Caryl Bigenho wants the motion on the 
Financial Manager to be on the agenda. Has she withdrawn her propsoed 
motion.

You certainly don't make easy by continuing to attack people.  One
alternative (as I will lay out below), is to actually do things
yourself rather than complain about others not doing them for you.

Let's talk about me "setting myself as a bottleneck", how exactly is
that possible when the GNU Library of C functions (glibc) and it's
locale effort are open source projects to which anyone can contribute.
Write an agr_PE locale file and submit it according to their community
process.  I will tell you it is not necessarily an easy community to
join actively or to get action from, which is why I have spent a great
deal of my own time gaining their trust through contribution, so that
I might be able to work effectively on behalf of the new language
efforts we encounter with some frequency at Sugar Labs.

Ok, you cite a message from Nov 2014 and one from Dec 2014 to a high
volume list, one that, by the way, is not the "home" of the
localization effort.  You do not replicate my private reply to you in
Feb 2015

"Sorry it has taken so long.  New job.

Let me work on this and I'll get back to you.  I will definitely work
with you to get this submitted in good form to glibc."

Or my delivery of a draft agr_PE glibc locale in another message later
on, followed by your testing and improvement, etc. etc.

I am quite sorry that I was not available at your beck and call when
you wanted me to do something for you, but in no way could I be
interpreted as a bottleneck to you doing it for yourself, and in time,
I actually provided you with the benefit of my expertise (without
cost), purely for the good of the community.  So your major complaint
is that I was not fast enough to do a favor for you.  Somehow, you
think I owed it to you to do work that you assigned to me more
quickly.

Life outside of Sugar does happen. Sometimes it can take more than a
message to a high-volume maiiling list to get someone's attention.
Actually getting someone's cooperation can involve not treating them
poorly on a regular basis until you need something from them.

I will be happy to assist anyone with matters of L10n/i18n as they
relate to Sugar Labs, but I'm not going to pretend that I do not find
some people more challenging to work with than others.  Nonetheless,
the work is the important thing.

Hi Chris,
I will try to be succinct in answering the questions you raise.

By Walter's apparent vote of no confidence in me and your insistence of
having done no wrong I realize I will have to work with you if I want to
get things done.

I like to work openly. My problem with your nomination is that you
already have insisted to set yourself up as a bottleneck, and blocked
for six months the efforts of Awajún language locale (look for my emails
to you from Nov and Dec 2014 here):
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2014-November/017104.html
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2014-December/017115.html

I suppose paying you would warrant we get from you a quality timely
service because it is perceived a paid manager is required to submit
reports on work done.
Perhaps. I don't read you'll quit your day job for this position.
Central control has not worked very well for Sugar Labs and this seems
to me like more of the same. The translation workflow itself (pootle
etc) replicates a centralized mental model.

Sincerely I appreciate every bit of energy you put into Sugar Labs and
would not want to undermine the tremendous contributions you have put
forward in the past and continue to do. Being paid, or not, is
independent of being a volunteer. Even paid, I believe we are all
volunteers here because we do what we love, and every bit counts.

After all these years I know better than to try to go against Walter's
wishes. I hereby withdraw my candidacy for the Translation Manager
position. I look forward to working with you on the aspects of the
position which I have the possibility and inclination to impact the
most, such as revamping our translation pipeline (fixing our tools,
removing bottlenecks), to get Pootle into shape and documenting a fully
offline scenario that will benefit native language efforts the most.

Hopefully we'll see a motion and a vote in this direction soon, and we
can put our differences aside. Apologies for any excess of passion.
Regards,

Sebastian
PS: Please don't read sarcasm in my words, I actively try to avoid it.

clear rules.

Sebastian, to quote your wife's e-mail "After a long talk with Edgar,
I am very worried that you keep asking for funds on his name.".   In
rhetorical terms, what you are doing is known as misdirection.  I was
speaking to her expressed concerns about Edgar, not about her  "Sugar
Translation Projects Fund" proposal.  I did not feel it necessary to
address that point as Walter's agenda:

Agenda:
1. Google Summer of Code status
2. Wiki Cleanup Party planning
3. Request from Edgar Quispe to attend Traducción e interpretación en

4. I18n manager discussion
5. Proposal from Samson Goddy re i18n in Nigeria
6. YOUR TOPIC HERE

includes an invitation for additional topic to be added (i.e. YOUR
TOPIC HERE), but perhaps that was lost in translation.

Do I detect an attempt at sarcasm in that autotranslator comment?
That's not at all collegial,  My Spanish is indeed a bit rusty, but I
muddle through.  When one works in i18n/L10n one must be aware of (and
sensitive to) the role of language and culture, as well as the fact
that some things, like sarcasm, do not translate well.

Yes, in June of 2015, I did miss reading two messages posted to
sugar-devel that had no further on-list follow-up.  I'm afraid my only
defense to that accusation is that there were 132 messages from that
list in that month and these two escaped my notice.  In retrospect,
I'm sorry I missed the opportunity to comment in a more timely manner.
This doesn't seem to be the right place for it, but the issues you
raise in those messages do not seem to be either egregious in number
or all that unexpected to someone with broader L10n project management
experience, it is part and parcel of the task.  I'm glad that you
addressed them, but they in no way tarnish the value of the extensive
work done by Edgar.

Please be specific about any misconceptions on my part.

I must strenuously object to this statement "unwillingness to engage
with the actual local community"  It is entirely unsubstantiated and
frankly offensive.  Is this how you would treat all volunteers to
Sugar Labs if given a funded position?  I feel no particular need to
defend my record of interactions with local language communities
against your entirely unwarranted and self-serving attack.  Shame on
you, you know better, you seem to have let your "passion" get the
better of you.

Your long email is filled with errors. Please read the following emails
(use an autotranslator and ask if you don't understand, sorry,
sugar-devel is supposed to be bilingual) in order to get an idea about
the issues surrounding the Aymara translation in Peru. Those emails had
Roger Gonzalo the translator hired by the Ministry of Education in copy.

http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2015-June/050416.html
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2015-June/050449.html

In short, no, the Aymara work done last year from Sugar Labs is not
exemplary at all.

Seeing so many misconceptions from your part and an unwillingness to
engage with the actual local community, I am concerned that you may not
be the ideal candidate for a Localization Team leader if this will be a
paid position. I am passionate about the subject and knowledgeable about
its intricacies and have been underfunded for a long time to engage in
this work, therefore I hereby announce that I will ask for this position
in opposition to you.

For transparency I have been paid ~3300 US dollars by the Ministry of
Education of Peru for integrating translations, writing patches for
Sugar, training translators, writing a manual, maintaining Pootle, and
releasing a localized OLPC OS build from Nov 2014 to Jan 2016. The fact
that you take credit for some of this work, is lamentable too.

Any further question from the SLOBs or the translation committee are
more than welcome as transparency is indeed very important.

I will write a proposal and share it publicly as everything in Sugar
Labs should be in the first place.

Apologies for missing the meeting. I came down with the flu. Lost my
voice as well. Still loopy on meds, but will try to catch up soon.

I’m pretty sure that as an ombudsperson I should step in only when there is a 
conflict ;)

But I’ll say that we have had good experience sending meeting announcements 
with a link to the time web site, showing the desired time as local plus a 
gazillion other time zones. Here’s what it would have looked like for Boston 
6pm:

At the bottom it even lists the time in UTC for James ;)

Bert's suggestion is an excellent one. It would eliminate problems with 
daylight saving time as well.

Heh.  It wasn't me.  I'm only observing.  I had used the Boston time,
because I'm used to it.  It was someone else who came late, at 23 UTC,
after people had left the meeting room.

G'day Walter,

It has emerged that 23 UTC is not 6pm Boston.

Could meetings be called using only UTC please?  ;-)
