An Attempt at writing a simpler charter

An Attempt at writing a simpler charter


The charter document should be read by each and every member at registration time, for this to be realistic it needs to be as simple and short as possible.

I suggest we take out some sections of the charter and make them into separate documents.

why, first of all its easier to agree on the broad ideas behind the charter, while a debate about what kind of speech is allowed might take forever.

in case of a strong disagreement the only way out is voting but the rules of voting are stated in the charter, we need a simple charter

moving to new host

the new home is donated by Alaa, Uniball, WhirlPool and MadFarmAnimalz.

in the future eglug should have an independant space and the cost should be shared by the members.

but we don't need to worry about that at the moment, this space is good for about 6 months.

cheers, Alaa

Challenges for the new website

To set up a website the way we described in the Wiki (we need to import this stuff here) there are some descisions we need to make, and some challenges facing us that may require coding or altering the way we work.

The real challanges are not in the CMS though, its in coming up with new guidelines and rules of governance.

sticky topics like posting guidelines, moderation guidelines, administration guidelines, who belongs to which user group and how to determine the criterea, how to avoid conflicts, how to encourage contribution etc.

I will stick to the drupal specific problems here, the rest needs a long dialogue.
