The Foundation has more and more work, so question is
not if more
people is to be involved. That's obvious. Question is if *the
community* is to be more and more involved.
And the answer is: yes.
Yeah ? Then just say where this important decisions
because I don't know, and I think i'm not the only one. Obviously not
on this mailing-list...
Important decisions are discussed here on this mailing list, on the
wiki, in public irc meetings, in private emails (i.e. often people have
questions, and just email privately, and get a private answer).
Could communications be improved? Yes, of course, but this is something
we have all known for a long time. I believe that the core problem is
not a lack of information flow, but excessive flow of raw information
which makes it hard for anyone to keep up with it all.
I think you
have completely failed to comprehend the seriousness of
the issues facing the business side of the foundation. It is *not*
just about paying the bills and refreshing domain subscriptions.
We are growing inevitably into a major enterprise with a
multi-million dollar annual budget. There is no way around that,
other than simply refusing to grow and letting the site run slow
because we don't have the servers.
Yeah, but that's some years ahead. For the moment, it's not the case,
so each thing in its time. Lucky enough you don't let build some
skyscraper, because some day, it could be necessary as a headquarter.
That is *not* "some years ahead"... it is *today*.
