Re: [Debconf-team] [Protest] Changes should come from within the team and not from above

This is a very bad symptom of how bad things are in the team right
now.  This is not healthy and this is not the kind of team I'd like to
work in.  I envision a DebConf team where we all work together, we
agree that the leaders we have are the leaders that we want to have
and the leaders feel that the team supports them and everyone can take
risks comfortably knowing that there's a team to back them up.

This includes all leaders, the chairs, the leads from the larger teams
and the leads from the smaller teams as well.

This is how your email felt with that *possibly* there. What was the
intention of the new composition of the coordination team if not to
give you the decision as to who can and who can't participate? What's
the possibly for?

> BTW I were also on coordination team, you called us once and only once, and never told us that we were not useful. (but for room allocation, you pretended that such initial indication were mandatory).

I guess you were very angry, I can't make sense of what you are saying
here.  The "Global team meetings" that we had during 2015 were
basically the coordination team meetings.  Very geared towards DC15 as
I didn't have enough bandwidth to do any more than that, but it did
work as coordinating the separate teams (content, bursaries,
registration, etc).

> So I really don’t understand you. What do you want? Do you want to be the lead of coordination? Chair meetings? Do the poker? Or just coordinate?  But as I told you, we will discuss this in the next coordination meeting, when also the 2 or 3 DC16 people who want to help, will be online.

I want to have a serious open team discussion that leads to the team
as a whole (and not the chairs behind close doors) deciding what
changes we want to implement. Together. As a team.

If the team decides that I'm not the best person to lead the
coordination team, I'm perfectly happy to step aside and let someone
else do it. If the chairs decide this without even explaining to me
why, then I'm not going to go away quietly.
