I recently shared the community needs and potential strategies for evolving community governance, which resulted from the Community Discussions we held in person and online throughout April and May. You can find the webinar recording and written transcript, as well as the meeting minutes from all Community Discussions, at https://www.drupal.org/community/discussions.

Many community members who participated in these discussions agreed that the next step to take in this process is to hold a Community Governance Summit. However, we are not yet clear on where and when this event should take place, who should participate, and several other important details. I worked with community members to develop this survey so we can answer those questions.

Please take 5 minutes to take this community survey and tell us your thoughts about the Community Governance Summit. This survey will remain open until 11:59pm EDT on July 28, 2017. We will analyze the findings and report back on what we learned in a follow-up blog post by Friday, August 4.

Thank you for your time and participation.

hmm, not sure if I clicked the wrong buttons but only received 2 questions, then the survey said thanks & bye.

Did you by any chance answer “no” to the question of whether there should be a governance summit?

if you do that, the questions about a possible summit are not applicable so not asked.

It seems odd that y'all wouldn't want our feedback about governance unless we already think a summit is the way to go. I haven't heard any other people asking for a summit except for the DA. Surely that's not the only possible solution? It's not even clear what a summit would mean. Online versus in-person are two entirely different beasts, for example.

Personally, I'm not opposed to a summit per se, but I think the utility of it would depend on conversations and plans developed beforehand, having the right participants and a productive agenda, and ensuring accountability for all participants during and afterward. Unless I know those things are in place, I can't be confident that it's worth a large investment of time, energy, and goodwill to make it happen.

Okay, that makes sense thanks.
