I hereby attach my proposal <http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/User:Sebastian> as
candidate for the Oversight Board of Sugar Labs.
It should be said that I am open getting your feedback and suggestions, as
I'd like to represent as best I can the interests of our community.
To vote it is necessary to be an official
*(deadline Nov 10th!)*.
This membership does not entail major responsibilities or commitments, but
does open a formal participation channel.
Proposal for Oversight Board Election 2010 Organizational Vision
*"Free Software development is like herding cats"* I support decentralized,
collaborative and transparent processes. In particular I propose to
encourage open bidding, hiring and bounty of services related to
development, support and learning methodology of Sugar.
¹ Sugar is Free Software because in this way it facilitates and makes
explicit the freedom to learn to learn.
² Sugar Labs should continue to be hardware agnostic and clearly
differentiate itself of any computer manufacturer.
³ Sugar will never be finished, it is a community and a continuous process
rather than a product.
⁴ Sugar Ecosystem needs sustainability models to evolve.
Functional Proposal 01 Design
Sugar is not a finished product. We must strive to align development of
Sugar with a common vision. At the moment, these objectives are expressed in
the unfinished document "Human Interface Guidelines" which was proposed in
2006 with certain hardware restrictions and no used feedback. It is time for
the community to revisit this document and update it.
02 Development / Deployment
• It's necessary to make experimentation with Sugar components and
• It's important to document how to deploy these experiments in the field.
• Finally we must close the loop by implementing direct feedback mechanisms
with final users.
03 Support and Quality Assurance
Local Labs should work together in establishing a "Services Portfolio" and a
"Code of Conduct". The first is meant to provide guidelines of services
Local Labs can provide, the second to set a standard of quality and
transparency. Support is the backbone of these services and I propose to
work on an open, universal support mechanism.
