How we make decisions

By default, decisions are made by lazy consensus:


The group is still getting started in terms of developing and prioritizing our backlog. We’re using Github projects for that.

  1. Our GitHub project board is here.


The process of selecting and replacing working group leaders is still to be formally decided. For now, election of new leaders is made by lazy consensus (see above).

Working group membership is not binary – we are not a political party. Instead, we value concrete contributions, such as bug reporting, fixing, release testing, documentation efforts, etc. Below we list people who made significant contributions to the past named releases.
