At the Joomla! World Conference in November 2014, a team was tasked by the Leadership Summit with reviewing and updating the Joomla! Code of Conduct which is presently available at http://www.joomla.org/about-joomla/the-project/code-of-conduct.html.
The team has worked since that date to update and refine the Code of Conduct, taking into account the rise of social media and the need to update the policy in line with the size and diversity of our community.
Research has been carried out which includes drawing from how other Open Source projects manage volunteer and leadership conduct, identifying example policies, reviewing procedures for dealing with breaches of policies, and identifying what might be the most appropriate way of deciding and implementing sanctions at varying levels.
Following a two week period of feedback from the Leadership Teams, we now request feedback from the Joomla! community for a further period of two weeks, where we welcome comments on the base English language document and translated versions.
To access the base document, please visit: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mUCWA2TDJ90KxuL89-oh2s9ZL1R34SBJZJtJihfeaJ8/edit?usp=sharing - translated versions will be linked to from this document.
If you would like to help translate this document into your language, please join the translation room on Glip by visiting www.glip.com/joomla and signing up for an account, then join the room called ‘Translation Room’. The team will be able to support you in translating the document.
Community feedback will be open until Friday, 12th June 2015 at which point the final version of the Code of Conduct Policy will be presented to the Leadership Teams for formal adoption by vote. If you would like to make suggestions, please use the ‘comment’ feature on Google Docs. For further discussion please use this forum post: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=704&t=888947
The Marketing Team Needs Your Input!
J! and Beyond is coming closer, in less than one week time we’ll have our Make It Happen session in Prague. Marketing is planning on 4 projects to happen :
- Content & Sitemap of the Joomla websites
- Sponsorship Marketing
- Public Relations Team kick off
- Traffic generation
The Joomla User Group (JUG) team is a vital part of our community, ensuring that our passionate community members can connect with other people living near them and meet up in-person to share their love for Joomla!.
The JUG Team has been led by Liam Mandville for many years, showing enormous dedication to the creation and maintenance of the JUG Directory and encouraging the formation of new User Groups around the world. After many years of dedication, Liam is stepping down from his role as team lead due to work commitments, effective 30th April 2015.
The Marketing Working Group (MWG) is pleased to announce the addition of a new team member. We welcome Mike Veeckmans on board the Marketing team!
Mike Veeckmans will collaborate with the other members of the Marketing Working Group in the role of communications manager, taking care of the successful planning, initiation and execution of projects. Mike has proved his management skills in many occasions, like Grace Hopper and the launch of Joomla! 3.4 campaign. We felt he was the perfect piece to match our team.
The primary focus of the Marketing Working Group (MWG) is to raise awareness of the Joomla Content Management System (CMS) and Framework within the international Joomla community, as well as the general open source community.
