FAmSCo indeed has problems meeting regularly.
We cannot seem to find a single timeslot that fits us all :(
to me it looks like this is not the only problem. If it's just the time,
then it should be possible to meet at least with a few people,
say 4 or 5, regularly instead of just once a month.
I take full responsibility for this
It sounds nice, but what does this mean? Please don't take this as a
personal attack, I am just thinking loud because I have the very same
problem with my FESCo membership. I am very busy in my dayjob and I do
not find enough time to care about FESCo. If I don't make it for a
meeting I try to at least go through our ticket tracker and vote about
the items on the meeting agenda there. Sometimes I do not even manage to
do this, not to mention other things I'd like to do.
Usually, when I politician says he takes full responsibility, it means
he is resigning. I have been thinking about resigning from FESCo but I
decided to serve till the end of my term in November and not run again.
I think that if there are FAmSCo members who no longer want or can
participate, they should officially resign and have somebody else take
over for them. I am convinced we have enough people willing to take over
But as a matter of fact we don't have a policy for this in place. FESCo
has , the FAmSCo election rules only mention a new election if the
number of members has dropped below 5 . IHMO this has happened
already with Larry leaving Fedora, Rahul leaving FESCo for other duties
and you being busy. However I am not sure if a new election at this
point makes sense. IHMO we should just do the same as FESCo - but
unfortunately it is on FAmSCo to decide so they need to meet again.
and the only way to move things
forward (for now) is to keep out mailing list active and have awesome
people like you Christoph active regionally.
Thanks, I am trying my best, but this is not really a solution for
everything. Again I have spent a lot of money from my pocket for Fedora,
e.g. I paid for hotel rooms, flights and travel of Fedora contributors
and I am waiting to get reimbursed. Budget needs to go through FAmSCo,
so I am waiting for my money. :(
