Revision 1.1 - (show annotations) (download) (as text)

Add glep 54, to replace (and require) glep 39, regarding project announcements and RFCs.  I'm marking this as F (final) as it was approved ages ago; feel free to take up wording and merits with me and it will be edited after the fact.  If you have a problem with this process, again take it up with me as I'm the bastard that did it.  Thanks

66 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id2" id="abstract" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
67 <p>This GLEP amends GLEP 39[#GLEP39]_. A new project must be announced
68 to the community prior to it's conception. The announcement should state
69 the project goals, the plan to achieve those goals, and any other information
70 deemed useful to the community by the person proposing a new project.</p>
71 </div>
72 <div class="section">
73 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id3" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
74 <p>Projects were being started behind the scenes that people were not aware of;
75 this included developers and users alike. It was thought important to notify
76 the community of new projects. This also enables new projects to get valuable
77 feedback before getting to far into design and implementation.</p>
78 </div>
79 <div class="section">
80 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
81 <p>We hope projects receiving feedback fare better in the long run with regards
82 to general reception as well as meeting the goals set forth in their
83 announcement. We hope projects announced early get more volunteers by virtue
84 of being announced and in the community's view.</p>
85 </div>
86 <div class="section">
87 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="backwards-compatibility" name="backwards-compatibility">Backwards Compatibility</a></h1>
88 <p>Projects already announced before 19-Oct-2006 are not affected. Since this
89 GLEP was authored nearly a year later, conceivably projects announced since
90 then should retroactively send mail regarding their goals and means to achieve
91 them if they have not done so already; otherwise they would be in breach of
92 policy set in 2006.</p>
93 </div>
94 <div class="section">
95 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
96 <p>New projects should send an Request For Comments mail to gentoo-dev (and
97 optionally gentoo-project) in order to received feedback from the Gentoo
98 community. Once the feedback has been received and changes incorportated into
99 the goals and design (if any), the project team should send a mail to
100 gentoo-dev-announce (and optionally gentoo-announce) regarding it's launch.</p>
101 <p>The contents of the announcements is left intentionally vague as to not
102 restrict the scope of projects, goals, and means. If announcement, projects,
103 goals, or means end up being terrible; the authors of this GLEP fully expect
104 the community to chew you out over it.</p>
105 <p>This GLEP does not empower the community to kill a new project, even if everyone
106 decides it sucks.</p>
