[amjjawad - Roadmap Proposal]

0- To Keep and eye and make sure to ALWAYS Update: AND whenever needed - THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT because these two pages are the very main focus on Wiki & Docs Team

1- TO-DO for this cycle (Trusty Tahr):

b -


d- Make sure the Wiki Area is up-to-date as always: and make sure the Wiki Map of Ubuntu GNOME is always updated whenever new page is added.

2- We need to Recruit More Contributors.

3- I need at least 'two' members to step in for the position of Ubuntu GNOME Wiki and Docs Administrators to handle these tasks:
a- cover my absence for whatever reason.
b- recruit more contributors.
c- continue to work on the Wiki Area and maintain it.
d- Launchpad administration work: accept members, etc.

In short, each sub-team needs a backup to cover the absence of the Team Leader of that team + to help him in order not to burn out. This eventually will help to develop a great healthy and friendly environment based on 'Team Work' which is our highest priority and forever target.

4- Discuss (in a meeting OR on the mailing list) all the above + other 'possible' suggestion as far as the time allows.

Note: I strongly and highly recommend a Google+ Hangout Session which can be also recorded so everyone can watch and learn more.

[jamesvorder] Another thing that has a place in our roadmap is establishing a presence on This is something of a big deal because it changes the structure of our wikis entirely. Since this is what protocol seems to be for Ubuntu flavors, we should probably follow suit.

[kashkarimi] +1 definitely agree about hangout session

[amjjawad] [RE: jamesvorder] For Trusty Cycle, no further actions to be done on our Wiki Area except what we have agreed on - please see the Work Items - and if we are talking about: then I shall take care of this and reach to a mutual agreement. If it is a must to follow that email, all what should we do is moving the HOWTO section ONLY, everything else shall remain. WE have NO enough manpower to maintain two Wiki Areas for the time being. I don't want my team to be burned out. We have another 6 months starting from the next cycle in May 2014 - October 2014 to talk about this. Thank you :)

[amjjawad] has been approved which means it is part of Trusty Roadmap for the Wiki Team :)

[amjjawad] Hi, unless you guys have anything in mind (I do have something that I will share with you soon), I think I will mark this one as 'implemented' and by this, The Wiki Team is going to be the very first Sub-Team of Ubuntu GNOME who finished everything :D this is really great. Well done everyone and thank you so much for everything!
