Fuduntu Team Reorganization Announced
With the Fuduntu project growing, a reorganization in the team was deemed as a necessary step. The reorganization will include more defined primary roles for the Fuduntu team members as well as setup team leaders for the major areas of Fuduntu.
Andrew Wyatt will remain in the role of the project leader. In addition, we are announcing leaders in various areas. Andrew, along with the various leads will form a new leadership team, replacing the steering committee.
There are several benefits that are expected to come from this reorganization. 1) It will allow for easier delegation of authority to various team members. 2) Allows for an easy “chain-of-command” in order to relieve overburdening various members. 3) It will allow for team members and Fuduntu users a simplified way to know who to talk to for various things that may come up.
This will also affect updates to Fuduntu. With the new structure, the Fuduntu Team is trying to give more control to team leaders. Minor updates and impacts to Fuduntu will be made using the best judgement of the team leaders. Major updates and impacts, however, will be made with consultation with the various leaders, or the entire leadership team.
This has the potential to allow for quicker updates while still preserving the integrity of Fuduntu and staying true to being the distro that doesn’t break. As Fuduntu continues to grow, the Fuduntu Team is prepared to adapt to the changes in order to give the best leadership possible to the distribution. The Fuduntu Team is committed to the distribution and its users.
The following teams have been formed and the new team leads have been included:
Support, Randy Adams
Development, Noah Hall
Packaging, Nick Bryda
Communications, Lee Ward
Marketing, Blair Zimmerman
The entire Fuduntu Team continues to look forward to providing a stable and reliable distribution to the Fuduntu and Linux communities.
