Dear Lubuntu Community,

Kindly have a read at this Blueprint/Proposal:


And, if you are using a Cell Phone or any device and for whatever reason
can't access the link, here is the text:

Lubuntu Community Council is my proposal/idea to clean the current mess in
Lubuntu Community and solve the pending issues that the community is facing
in order to move forward to build a healthy community and a rock solid
system for old machines with LTS.

Given Information:
1- Lubuntu Community Has NO Actual Leader Starting from 15-May-2012 -

2- Lubuntu Community and Sub-Teams are a real mess. Lubuntu Communications
Sub-Team and Lubuntu QA Team are both without 'Active' Team Leaders. The
whole team needs a clean up, reorganize and re-assessment.

3- The Activities of the Community has dropped due to lack of
communications and some core old members of the team has left/quit/resigned
and the rest are inactive and only very few are still active but that is
not enough.

4- Lubuntu 13.10 was a bit of disappointment for as per users and members
feedback and some nasty bugs.

A- Not only one person must lead Lubuntu but instead of that, a Community
Council consists of many members - the idea inspired by:

B- LCC (Lubuntu Community Council) elect one member to lead this Community
Council at the very beginning of each release cycle  and this election will
take place every 6 months. Members of LCC will elect their leaders.

C- This is a NON-Technical Board or Council.

D- This Council is in charge of:
1- Lubuntu Guards and Keepers - make sure everything goes as smooth as
possible and make sure Ubuntu Code of Conducts applies and everyone
respects the other.
2- Make sure to build a healthy community based on Team Work, Sharing and
3- No Dictatorship: No one will lead the whole community but instead a
group of people will do that.
4- Any Lubuntu Member can be a member of this Community Council.
5- Team Leaders of Lubuntu Sub-Teams are members of this Council.

E- Requirements:
1- Must be Active Lubuntu Member at least for 6 months Minimum.
2- Members must have proven record of some Lubuntu Community Experience
(NON-Technical) and members with minimum one year with Lubuntu Community
are preferred.
3- Technical People can join but the above points (#1 and #2) must apply.
4- Must sign Ubuntu Code of Conducts.
5- Must have a Wiki Page.
6- Must have proven record of team work.
7- Friendly and nice.
8- Must communicate.
9- Must leave a note if he/she is busy or will be away.
10- Before stepping down, must give a notice

F- Decision Making:
Lubuntu Community Council is in charge of decision making and the future of
Lubuntu is between the hands of this council. HOWEVER, NO decision to be
made UNLESS the whole community (members+users) must be aware of that - to
send an email to the mailing list. Some decisions can be made by this
council if and only if it is a derision that requires a high skill of
Community Experience + Technical Experience which other users may not meet
this requirement. But all in all, each and every decision will be made

G- Meeting:
Lubuntu Community Council must have at least one meeting per month. Even
better, one meeting every two weeks if possible. After the meeting, the log
must be shared with everyone belong to Lubuntu Community + must be
published on Lubuntu Social Media

H- Launchpad:
This Council must have a Launchpad Team +  a Mailing List. The
owner/creator of that team on Launchpad is NOT necessarily the leader of
this Council.  He/She could be anyone who would like to help to set up this

I- This proposal idea will be on this blueprint. Lubuntu Brainstorming Team
will be assigned to this proposal. Team Leader of Lubuntu Brainstorming
Team must send an email to both Lubuntu Brainstorming Team + The General
Mailing List.

J- Discussion will be made here and if most of the active members of
Lubuntu Community Agree, this idea will be implemented immediately.

K- Lubuntu Community Members can propose some changes on the above but must
communicate first with Lubuntu Brainstorming Team before doing anything. Or
simply, just add your comment to the whiteboard.


Thank you!

Lubuntu Brainstorming Team Leader
