   1. Communications, Ubuntu GNOME team.


Hi, this is my first contribution to this mailing list. I joined the Ubuntu
GNOME marketing & communications team for two reasons; I'm an Ubuntu lover
since 2008, and, I have knowledge in marketing and I would like to help
out, contribute, and push forward the operating system I use.
The problem is, I joined, I started to receive the mailing list, but as
beginner it has been a bit complicated to follow the conversations, give
some help to others... I've been a bit lost.
One aim of the communication & marketing team is to recruit new members,
but why? Is not enough? or maybe it's happening that some new members join
Ubuntu GNOME, and seeing the 'mess' and the lack of help to be introduced,
they are not able to give their help at all...
Maybe is only my case, but a possible solution to solve this, create an
stronger developer's community around Ubuntu GNOME, and transform bank
members into active and helpful ones, is to change the way the people is
accepted and introduced in the teams. I can give an idea, I would like to
hear more or even somebody telling me that I'm wrong and that is only
happening to me.. but implementing a -brotherhood- system (or your
favourite name), where any new member is introduced by an old one, taught
the basics, and supported in the first steps could be a good improvement,
having a more efficient, quick to learn, active, and supportive team. The
'masters' can easily delegate simple tasks, and the organization can be
more flexible. Maybe I'm purposing this idea because I really don't know
what about is all of this. Anyway, I think is a good debate to be
considered, related with the internal communication.

Best regards, Amaro.
