New Swordfish project lead

Oliver is proposing to step down as lead and nominate Zsolt as the new lead.

  • Oliver has multiple roles and this seems like too much for one person
  • Looking to split up the roles to move leadership
  • There was some discussion around co-leadership, or how the roles should be split.
  • As a result of the discussion, Oliver will go back to the project team and discuss. We will defer the vote until he comes back.

Approving own project things

There are a few instances of people self approving things. Mailing list, CQs, ...

  • Jochen proposes that we formalize this a little bit and consider self-approval as a bad practice.
  • Conflict of interest issues are apparent/possible
  • There is a tension between openness and the knowledge of what is going on in the projects
  • VOTE: "We will avoid PMC members being the sole approver for requests/votes from their own project." - Unanimously agreed to.
  • Jochen to send a message to the RT PMC to report.
