Is this your way to promote for FOSS/Ubuntu Spirit among a community
such as Lubuntu? the community that you used to put so much effort on
and still? well, if you accept an advice or a feedback from a true
friend and a former member of this community, I'm sorry but you're very
wrong and I highly disagree with the email that you sent. I will not
remind you of the CoC because I am sure you do know it. I don't really
need to remind you of the 'Team Leader Talk' as you hate titles with
passion as you always stated. I don't need to tell you that what you
have done will push people away from the Wiki Pages which need a lot of
care and perhaps the whole community as well.
While I am one of those who truly know your good intention, I on the
other hand, disagree with your email.
A Team Leader is not untouchable person as you made it looks like that.
Above all, anyone with a Launchpad account can edit the Wiki Pages.
Yes, a healthy discussions on a mailing list must take a place. That's
done. However, people who are directly involved, as usual, were silent.
Yes, pages should not be edited right away - I agree with that - but
your approach, my good friend, is wrong IMHO.
Sergio is my friend and he's very nice guy. He needs all the support
from everyone. This is not the right way to support him IMHO nor the
correct way to help Lubuntu.
You guys may have a look at my team. I'm the founder of Ubuntu GNOME
Sub-Teams. I'm the Team Leader of Ubuntu GNOME Wiki and Docs Team. We're
3 people working on that area and I can assure you, we're communicating
in a highly professional and healthy way. If my team did a mistake, I
don't shout nor be angry at them, they are 'volunteers' and I must
respect their time and effort. I approach them nicely and ask them to
fix what is broken.
Have a look at our public archive so that everyone here can have an idea
what is the real difference between Lubuntu Community and others.
You guys seem to disagree more than anything else. Yes, that is not bad
but sometimes, too much is too bad and I'm now one of those who will
seriously think more than once before sending any more suggestion to
this list :)
You guys need help but when someone helps you, well, no comment.
I do hope you guys know what you're doing. Good luck!
I have million of things to worry about but because you are all my
friends, I'm here. However, if such emails will remain, I'm afraid I
will remove myself so that I stay away from unneeded stress.
Last advice, my good friend and mentor which is from your mouth: Take it
easy and whenever you're under stress (I know that), I'd prefer to stay
away from the keyboard.
I woke up today with red eyes and broken body. I didn't touch the
keyboard until now because I have to reply and remind you about the
basics. Now, I'm off again :)
Don't get me wrong here, Phill. You know I'm one of those who understand
you a lot and as a true friend, I must advise when I really have to.
Hope you appreciate that.
