A New Team Leader for Lubuntu QA



First of all, I can tell your first impression the moment you saw the
sender and the subject of this email :)

The answer to your Q is: NO ... I am NOT planning to step in as a Team
Leader for this area. I have tons of other roles and tons of other tasks so
my hands are tight but being the Head of the Brainstorming Team and a
faithful member of Lubuntu Family for two years who can't ever be late when
Lubuntu needs help, I find it, and I am sure some if not all of you agree,
that this team, needs a New Team Leader, specially after Phill has

I have started this Blueprint previously:

I believe if we want a successful release, in every aspect, the role of
Release Manager/QA Team Leader must be handled by someone who is:

Available to help
Can handle this team

Don't underestimate this role. This is the MOST stressful role ever and you
can ask Phill if you don't believe my words.

However, I am not pushing you away, I am sure there are people who can step
in and help!

The New Team Leader needs NOT only to handle Testing/Bugs and stuff like
that. He needs to:

Organize a Team - VERY important
Motivate a Team
Recruit more members if needed

and lots of other tasks :)

AND ...
This is for the Lubuntu Community and specially the Lubuntu QA Team to
know: I'm afraid I can NOT do any kind of testing for Lubuntu this cycle.
Sad but true. All what I can offer is handling the Brainstorming Team and
do some Wiki Edits whenever possible.

You see, my hands are so tight:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/amjjawad/UbuntuGNOME-Team - and I am very happy
with Ubuntu GNOME and it is a young team that need my full help and
support. Not to mention, StartUbuntu Project :)

But, needless to say, if Lubuntu needs help, I am the first one who will
jump in, roll up my sleeves and get the dirty job done! NO doubt about that.

THIS IS JUST a suggestion. Take it, or leave it. This is entirely up to
Lubuntu QA Team to decide.

I offered my advice and thoughts. I offered my idea on a blueprint. It is
time for YOU guys to make up your mind and decide!

Let me know if you need anything.

All the best and good luck :)
