Over the past couple of months, Activity Central has been establishing
a network of developers to provide service and support for
deployments. A number of these developer have been working on fixing
Sugar related bugs.
Sugar Labs has expressed the importance of more code contributions
from deployments. Deployments have expressed an interest in fixing
their own bugs. The Deployment Support Network fills that gap.
Initial, I had reservations about the maintainship roles these
developers would hold at Sugar Labs. In light of the current backlog
of patches and the heavy burden a few core developers are holding, I
would like work with the Sugar Labs development team to determine the
process for experienced developers to become maintainers.
