Good morning Oksana and all bees,

I think that is good idea to clarify a little bit the "roles" but, I think
that in order to not be chaotic maybe it could be good if we have one
"Status" simple, and basic. Then, we can have some rules in order to
"order" the order :-)

If we get a good presence in both summit we will start making some good
noise in the community.

That's could be a good idea! Because in my case I have some doubts and
ideas. I will be some days out (till next Tuesday) but I will try to read
your emails.



PS: Our web is Super Cool!

> Dear bees,
> We have already 37 followers in Twitter and several request to join. As
> far as we haven't organized internal chat yet, I want to share with you my
> thoughts about the membership and the structure of the Order. The idea is
> as follows:
> Alfresco Community unites all people who use, configure, develop Alfresco.
> You can invest back to the community or still bring something from it. You
> are still a part of it.
> Order of the Bee members should unite people who invest a lot to the
> community. Some ways to invest:
> - publishing tutorials and blog posts about using Alfresco community
> - developing and maintaining free open source add-ons
> - helping people in IRC, on forums and StackOverflow
> We also have several specific ways to invest:
> - helping with OOTB website support
> - searching, reviewing and publishing add-ons, companies and success
> stories
> - OOTB edition development
> - supporting Alfresco instances for testing and demo purposes
> - working with new members, inviting new members etc
> - support marketing channels: publishing news about new add-ons and
> tutorials to our social channels
> So we can categorize members and give badges to everyone depend on what is
> he or she doing. Alfresco employees can join the Order if they do something
> for the community as their non-primary job responsibility. Maintaining
> extensions in Share Extras and writing tutorials (like Share development
> series by Dave Draper) can be considered as investment to the community.
> Now we have an issue: a lot of "members" ignore messages in the mailing
> list. I don't know do they read them and keep silent, or do they not read
> messages at all. Such categorization helps to assign responsibilities. If
> you are a member and you have a badge of "Bee-author of articles", then be
> so kind to write at least 2-3 articles/tutorials in a year. If there is a
> join request, then one of those, who are responsible for new members,
> should check meeting formal criterias and approve or reject the request. If
> someone has a comment about OOTB edition development, it should be sent to
> the OOTB edition development team.
> Also a point about voting:
> All important decisions should be made by members of Order. Author of the
> petition should send the proposed solution to the mailing list. Members
> should vote by replying to the message. The results should be summarized in
> a week or another time that author of the petition suggested. 50% (or 60?)
> of the votes should be "In favor" to approve the petition. If someone
> didn't vote in the allotted time, his or her opinion is not taken into
> consideration. To review the decision made on the voting the new voting can
> be started.
> We can form a first "petition" from the points above after edits from your
> side. If you like the idea, then we may summarize a list of categories and
> first members of these categories, write these points in more clear and
> formal English language, publish them on the websites as our structure and
> governance roles.
> If I missed something, please add more points to the proposed petition :)
> I created an #ootb channel in IRC to discuss points quicker. Or should we
> create a hangout in Google for it? I believe we can form the final text
> this week and start voting on Monday.
> Sincerely yours,
> Oksana
