Ubuntu Community Council Experience

As reported in a previous post I have requested the Ubuntu Community Council for the definition of a control process for non technical driven changes .
Today I have attended to the CC meeting and I would like to share my experience.

I was able to expose my concerns, I got a long feedback from Mark, and as I understood his position and because no one was able to identify actions that worth be taken, everything is fine with Ubuntu change management. If you need more information about changes the recommended process is just to ask Mark he will point you to the right person.

My feeling about the CC board per si, is that, except for Mark which had Canonical/himself all over his conversation, the Ubuntu community was properly represented.
However because the CC lacks any executive capacity, that meeting felt mostly like a social event to get the pulse of the Ubuntu community, not an event to have effective discussion of ideas.

  1. Thank you for attending and bringing this up at the meeting, public discussion on this in a more formal setting is important and I'm glad we were able to have it, even if you question the effectiveness. I know Mark puts a lot of stock in community feedback, so I wouldn't undersell the "pulse of the Ubuntu community" aspect of it.
