We are all on the same side here: trying to make the projects (and the
project interfaces, as a part of that) better. .
I agree, we all want to to improve things. But with no criticism to any
individual , I do feel this again highlights my often stated standpoint.
- We must have proper user controlled development of the software
And this include some sort of Steering group, liaison officers is Not
enough. And if such a group had existed they would have discussed on the
different opinions from the German communty the the WMF sw development
team and made a decisions, perhaps exacly what Eric now decided, perhaps
something different, but at least the dialog would have been better.
After just having left FDC I can not help comparing how tough decisions
was performed with FDC in place , and here without a steering group made
up of community members
I would like to urge the Board and the new ED of WMF to implement asap
such a group, which has already been discussed and proposed several
times, even by Eric in the yearly plan for 2014-2015
