Re: a new Community Team


Hi Julien, community,

this is good news and in general I guess you did send your message just in time.
As always announcing is step one, execution of what is announced is step 2.
We could see the first steps and I'm excited about the next steps that will follow definitely. I have hope now.

You did ask for suggestions,
well, could we have a look at "translations", per default a community task.

From september 2009 till now Tiny is working on the technical process of managing translations
in OpenERP and launchpad/Rosetta.
We determined because of missing one day our translations done. https://bugs.launchpad.net/openobject-addons/+bug/439241
Ok, a mistake can happen and we will translate again.
Due to the fact that all kind of things changed inhere last month, having 2 different behaviors for stable and trunk now, I would appreciate very very much that someone at Tiny will outline the new situation we have to the community. e.g. write a small document for translation teams how to technically do the translations.

Right now I'm not sure I do understand how we should translate for stable and trunk. Which possibilities do we have; e.g. delivering with module and uploading with lp, downloading po files and uploading again after translation, translating in webinterface of lp,
automatic synchronizing between trunk and stable? or do we merge manually?
I guess I'm not alone here.

With kind regards,
Jan Verlaan

Hello everybody,

My name is Julien Thewys and I have just been working on the new
communication process here at Tiny. Olivier Dony and I set up a new team
that will focus on the community and its ever evolving challenges. The
responsibility of this team is to be the link between Tiny and the
community. We are very excited to share with you what has been keeping
us busy!

       * We are defining clearer points of contact for the community. We
         already agreed on the following ones:
               * The Quality Team is responsible of merging contributions
                 and managing releases. This team will be ready starting
                 from 8 February; we will let you know how to contact
               * The Community Team is in charge of mediating in the
                 community and enhancing processes. We are talking to you
                 right now! Please join us on the community mailing list.
       * The overhaul of the communication process is ongoing. We just
         opened two dedicated Twitter accounts: one for OpenERP, one for
         OpenObject. Also, our website will experience an appropriate
         redesign to accommodate the community needs.
       * We are planning community meetings more frequently. Just to
         remind you, the next on-site community meeting is held on 23 and
         24 March, while the next IRC meeting is planned for the 12th
         February. The list of topics to be discussed has already been
         added to the wiki (this list is still open).
       * Bugs and wishlists have been followed with a particular
         attention recently: we are addressing more than 85% of them and
         we are determined to do even better very soon.
       * We have been concentrating on enhancing the documentation: we
         are currently tuning the Technical Memo (here is a draft, your
         suggestions are welcome) and there is an e-learning resource
         site in preparation.

Of course, we are always open to suggestions. Feel free to let us know
what is on your mind and how you envision an even brighter OpenERP
community. Many thanks to Raphaël Valyi for his great article in this

Stay tuned, we have lots of cool stuffs for the forthcoming weeks.

Note: We would appreciate if you could help us making a survey about the
communication. Can you provide some concise and relevant questions? (for
example: what are the preferred channels of communication: mailing list,
blog, twitter, irc,...?) Thanks to all!
