Re: artTeam Home Page Mockup

Hey John,

I could not be more delighted by the discussion taking place and I want to add an additional item to the discussion and that is a mock up of the team wiki home page.

It currently resides in my personal sandbox but if it this is heading in the desired direction of the team I would like to move it. Please view this as a starting point.

On the whole, I think the goals and objectives you've got on here are pretty much right on (with some holes I will fill in), but I kind of agree with Paul's [1] sentiment that in terms of roles on the team, this introduces a little bit too much structure for a small, fledgling team.

For now, considering some of our recent *ahem* issues, I think it's probably a smart idea to avoid the default artwork for Fedora (the OS distro). It has already been decided that it cannot be part of a community project, so it really has nothing to do with this list and should not be a project under this team. This eliminates the need for a liaison with the Desktop team. (I do not think that putting together an extra theme package for (the artist formerly known as) extras requires working with Desktop team at all, although we will need someone with some packaging experience to help us put it together.)

I kind of think all we really need is an overall team leader or two of the loosely coupled subgroups who can do project management (communication, schedules, deadlines, milestones, project prioritization, etc). Since the Fedora project definition process [2] suggests starting out as a SIG first and then giving status reports and sort of applying to become an official project, this status report/application process also seems like something that should be a task the team lead handles.

I don't think small subgroups like a 'documentation team' or 'marketing team' really need formal leads/liasons; if they grow big enough to warrant it I should hope leaders would naturally emerge.

Does this seem reasonable?
