Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
In The Future of Drupal Governance I proposed that we create a temporary working group which will work to define first steps in refinement of Drupal governance. The scope of the suggested group would be:
- As a pilot project, develop new techniques for improving the productivity of the core issue queue. (Possible techniques: resolve blocked issues, delegate authority to resolve, grant early approval to specific issues.)
- Define authority structure for core initiatives.
- Define a method for creating, publishing, and maintaining policies in the Drupal Community.
- Define a structure and process for technical and community conflict resolution.
- Define a structure and process for changing and improving Drupal Community governance.
I proposed that Dries select two members of the working group (and participate himself, at least at the Portland meeting, below) and webchick and rfay choose three (and perhaps participate themselves). The choices would be based on but not constrained by community input.
The working group would be dissolved by Drupalcon Munich; It will probably have a major working session in July, most likely July 16-17 in Portland Oregon, just after the Community Leadership Summit and during OSCON. (It will not be part of OSCON, and OSCON registration is not required.)
If you have suggestions on how this working group should function, scope suggestions, or proposals of who should be involved, you can respond to this inaugural issue.
