Ok, it's 24 hours later, and we have quite a few names now. Moving along:

* I will forward the available names to DJ, as well as the one objection for him to consider, and propose that we close the nominations and finalise the team.

* I will circulate a draft framework for holding orderly discussions, for comment by the team members, within 24 hours. It will include proposed:

i) terms of reference for the team (our job specification).

ii) procedures for conducting discussion (voting, peace keeping etc).

iii) a draft agenda (to keep discussions on track).

iv) a suggested mechanism to keep the community informed and allow for feedback to be made as discussions progress.

If the team can reach agreement on these procedural matters then we will start on the hard stuff.

@ MadFish

Please be sure to let us know where should we add items for inclusion in the agenda.
And, do we have a representative from the Foundation in our list of proposed team members?

Ok you got in just before I sent the list. I have also lodged the objections that have been raised with DJ, including the reasons that have been given, and asked him to make a decision on them.

I want to make one thing clear to everyone: Personal issues are not going to be on the agenda. We'll be talking about structures and procedures, not individuals. Please come prepared for a constructive debate. Thanks.

Crip: I'll ask people to email their comments back to me, and then circulate the 'amended' agenda a second time for the team's approval.

I have almost no knowledge of php and some what decent knowledge of html, i like XOOPS a lot for the fact that its by far the most user friendly cms for a non-coder. I will like to contribute to XOOPS development in anyways possible. So do let me know.

I have read a couple of post about Damaster(i only know what i have read), but if its true that he hacked into peoples account, thats a very serious issue friends. Because this in itself considered a crime in many countries. Even i think nominating him to the committee is a very wrong, in fact he still not being banned is a cause of concern here. Its common sense to not allow people like him to get away with their wrongs. Again i dont know Damaster personally, so if the post i had read about him were wrong then i take all my words back.

And please let me know if theres a way i can help.

Humm...
If a friend ask me help, should I refuse?
Known that I like fight the evil in life as on the web
for freedom and that the truth could be known and evolve.
Couldn't refuse. How i distinguish? Quite easy. 3 years
facing hidden people behind anonymous avatars. Development frozen.
Lies, money, power, politics to manipulate and divide
community to increase adds revenues on their own smart
'sites for info'.

All that is what the next team has to clean up for the next team
and that to prevent such issues to happen again.

Maybe it is a crazy and seek job. Maybe it is not so bad and mad!

So, if your jut out prejudices for a 'supposed' place,
I doubt you're on the good side and that you're able to help
and know what to do or where to go.
Anyway, I leave you volontier that place.

You should be aware that I never run for a chair or a title,
and that you will have to stand up... with your prejudices!


Well, I've teasing enough to made the hidden evil point his head out,
plans and fears It is up to you now !

If you ever get it free to drive away, Have Fun !
