Thanks!  It would definitely be helpful to have these on a public site so that we can easily link to them when we announce voting on the general/tech lists.  Perhaps they should just be added to the admin list wiki page:

 

http://www.vufind.org/wiki/administrator_list

 

We could link the individual responses to the bulleted volunteer list using anchors for easy reference.

 

If your beta is still keeping you too busy to work on this (or if you'd just like to split up the work for sanity's sake), let me know and I can spend some time tomorrow formatting the page and filling in details received so far.

Hi,
Sorry for not getting back sooner - I've been up the walls as we approach a beta release!

Anyway, I dumped the responses so far into the attached pdf. There are still a few to come, and I can collate the info more usefully then, if necessary.

All the best,
Eoghan

Ok, I submitted mine. I didn’t notice before until I filled it out, but question 5a has a couple minor typos,

What skills can bring to the project, other than development skills and the areas of expertise mentioned above? e.g. Administration, Project Management, Event organisation, Publicity, Community development & Advocacy etc.

 

What skills can you bring to the project

 

Event organization

Hi,

I didn't receive any more suggestions re survey, so I suppose it's good to go.

 

Cheers,

Eoghan

Sounds fine to me, though don't feel you have to do any extra work on the weekend just to please those of us on other parts of the globe.  As long as it's ready near the beginning of the week and you send a note to the list when you're ready for people to start filling it in, I'm sure everyone will be content.

Hi Damian,

That sounds fine. I'll make changes as suggestions come in tomorrow and over the weekend. It is hard to keep track of everyone's time-zones, but how about I make final changes by midnight GMT on Sunday?

Thanks!

 

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?

Hi,

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.

 

Cheers,

Eoghan

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.
