In the interest of keeping things moving, how about we make the
rest of this week the comment period on the survey. I'll leave it to your discretion
how to implement the various suggestions that come up. We can then spend next
week answering the survey and agreeing on a voting system, vote the first half
of the following week, and have an admin group constituted by October. Then we
can get to the serious work of stabilizing the trunk and making a release.
Does this sound reasonable to everyone?

Survey as requested: http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?hl=en_GB&formkey=dDNPNi1KVm9kY2dxcFAyRnB3UklLUEE6MA..
Let me know if anything should be changed/added before
people start filling it in.
If we go ahead and use this, I can share out the Google Docs
spreadsheets and/or collate results into the wiki as needed.

I just checked the membership list, and it looks like all of the VuFind
admin volunteers have joined this list. If anybody has been waiting to
speak until the whole group was present, you can go ahead now. Please let
us know if you have any objections to the proposed policies and group
composition… though I'm hoping the silence means general agreement!
As far as moving forward, I've asked Eoghan to post a link to the skills
survey he's been developing so we can learn more about each other's abilities
and hopefully make more informed decisions in order to build a diverse,
committed and stable admin group. We also need to figure out a voting
procedure to select the group once we have the necessary information available
-- I plan to spend some time looking at LimeSurvey to see if that's a suitable
tool since it's conveniently built into the Sourceforge site, but if there are
other suggestions, I'm happy to hear them.
