Hi again,

This is the 4th email that is a part of the planning phase/stage for Ubuntu
GNOME Wily Werewolf (15.10) Cycle. This is a follow up for:


And to be more accurate, to my NEW plan for the Human Resources.

   - 1st email:
   - 2nd email:
   - 3rd email:

*My Plan*

   1. Because of all what I have mentioned regarding Ubuntu GNOME HR
   sub-team -
   https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-gnome/2015-August/003392.html -
   which can be found in section A, I had to find a better idea or alternative.
   2. The main reason why there are sub-teams, is because each and every
   contributor/volunteer here has different skills and experience than the
   other one. While I can build communities and do planning, etc .. I can't
   write a code nor design a logo. So, who is the best one who knows about
   each sub-team more than the rest of us? the answer is: the members of that
   3. I am simply suggesting here, to make it easier for everyone, is
   instead of having a dedicated 'sub-team' for HR, why not having a dedicated
   person within each sub-team for HR who knows these facts:

   - What his/her sub-team truly need
   - Knows about the needed experience and required skills within that
   - Probably knows where to find, how and when
   - Why not give 100% freedom for each and every sub-team to manage
   themselves which will lead us to UG Community version 2.0 (which I will
   explain in new email)?

So, basically, the new structure of each sub-team would be:

Technical Lead: the one who knows the best about the activity of that
sub-team, for example Alfredo is the driver of UG Artwork.

Non-Technical/Community Lead: the one who has skills and experience but he
also knows how to deal with people and help them to be useful and give back
to the sub-team and eventually the entire project.

These 2 roles will be within each and every sub-team.

This is even better idea than: http://ubuntugnome.org/acting-team-leader/

By doing that, we make sure each sub-team can manage itself and each
sub-team knows exactly what to be done and how.

This will make us more powerful and advance.

Before you share your opinion, just think how amazing this can be and how
far we could go with this. Don't expect it to be fully ready for 15.10
cycle but within less than a year, IMHO, we can share the fruit of that :)

Thank you!

Remember: "All of us are smarter than any one of us."
