personally as a contributor with a strong focus in community growth I feel really
uncomfortable (not to say offended) with your attitude towards people that I personally
know work so hard for the community.
I want to be clear here: you share only half of the information and it is obvious you are
doing it intentionally. Just to clarify for the list: Jona, was the first to ask for the
SQ mailing list to be created after discussing it in one of our weekly meetings, which
clearly shows the will to have all the work documented there. You can find the request
You jumped to ask for admin rights right away (sadly using the fact that you knew were to
ask for it as a more experienced user) and afterwards when Jona contacted you to become
also an admin of the list (her being the person who initiated the process) you declined
because 'isn't it too early to make such requests?' as mentioned in this email
. Now, how reasonable is to deny admin access to someone who
initiated the request for the mailing list in the first place I would like to leave it to
the list to judge. I hope now the list understands why people in the community feel
uncomfortable participating in the mailing list and why they avoid it.
You were also wondering why people have not contributed in the last two months. Well
Besnik, they have! They have been contributing in recruiting, planning events and working
with fellow Fedora community members, but they avoid localization not to be called
'primadona' or else.
You also do not accept the beneficial elements of crowd-editing and contributing (based on
your communication through email http://prnt.sc/cvefn0
), a concept accepted by almost all
As it is right now: we have you, someone that has informed the community six month before
that has no time to contribute and that promised that will step down if there are active
contributors (well Anxhelo has contributed more than you) and on the other hand we have
the people that are pushed away from localisation efforts. As i see it the sum here is
zero. In my opinion we are working during the day to bring new contributors and by night
you do your best to send them away by declining almost everything is done because you
don't agree with the way we work on the hackerspace.
Besnik, I'd like to remind you that one of the four foundations of the Fedora Project
is 'Friends' and you have proven not to be a good one. In the contrary, you have
been a person that clearly does not want new contributors to jump in the project.
All the best,
