  626. pep. I'm sad that no action is taken to find someone to replace editors while the dust is still in the air. Instead all I see is bandaids being applied here and there (maybe), or saying it's hard. I fear it'll come back to what it was when the dust settles
  627. pep. But I'm not surprised, we've seen this happening before
  628. singpolyma has left

  630. MattJ pep.: if you recall, Jonas's email specifically recommended against simply finding a replacement editor
  631. MattJ And I trust that judgement, based on who its coming from, and also my own perception of that role
  632. singpolyma Guus: looks like a pretty good start on that script. One thing I would note is that you don't seem to be using any bashisms so could use /bin/sh instead of /bin/bash -- I might suggest a shellcheck run to be sure, but I'm pretty confident
  633. singpolyma Yeah, it's my understanding that the perception is that the editor role hrs up to now mostly been a band-aid for not having a good build process so if we fix that the the editor role becomes much easier to fill

  636. Guus singpolyma: you might very well be right. Can you leave your feedback on the PR please? I'd first like to get some feedback if this is a feasible approach, before investing more time on this particular implementation.
  637. singpolyma Yeah, I like the approach but I'm not an expert. I will try to remember to leave PR feedback if still relevant when I am next near a GitHub account

  898. singpolyma > emus, first, who are we setting up a contract with? I think this is basically the only hard part. Finding someone and negotiating a rate. Like, I know there are several people in this room who do freelance or run consultancies (including me). So *maybe* we don't have to look far, but all depends on rate and what people are already doing, I dunno
  899. singpolyma But also so far it seems like at least a few people here are doing substantial parts of it for free so maybe we're playing checken with how far that will get first?

  901. pep. If the XSF wanted it, we'd put the word out and interview people yeah, not entirely sure what's hard about it. If it happens we indeed don't find anybody for it then so be it. But let's not say it's too hard before something is even started
  902. Dele Olajide has left
  903. singpolyma pep.: Certainly not too hard, no
  904. oshn has joined
  905. singpolyma But someone has to do it, it won't do itself
  906. MSavoritias (fae,ve) Yep. The thing is if the xsf doesnt want to hire we cant really start any searching. I just hope the volunteers are not over streched.

  923. MattJ I don't really understand the comments about the XSF not wanting to hire. We've talked about it lots in the past, and it's something most people are in favour of
  924. MattJ By hire I mean as freelance, not becoming an employer
  925. MattJ That's a bigger line to cross, and it's pretty obvious not ready for that
  926. MattJ That's a bigger line to cross, and it's pretty obvious we're not ready for that
  927. MattJ Nor do I think we need it
  928. MattJ But short-term contracts for specific projects have been brought up many times and I don't think Board has ever said no to a concrete proposal
  929. MattJ But we rarely get concrete proposals
  930. MattJ Just "we should do this"
  931. MattJ Which is a statement most people agree with, but nobody can answer right now who we should hire (or interview), what they should do, or how much we pay them or for how long
  932. MattJ Managing contracts like that successfully is not without overhead

  937. oshn has joined
  938. MattJ But I also have the skills to do what's needed directly (if not the time)
  939. MattJ So I just made a start, it's the easiest and quickest option
  940. MattJ Not sustainable, but we don't necessarily need it to be
  941. MattJ I've been working with Jonas to refine what concrete work is needed to meet the requirements, and I think things are becoming a lot clearer now
  942. stp has left
  943. MattJ If someone in the community were to raise their hand and say that they have the skills and are available to implement this (voluntarily or at a reasonable rate) I don't see any reason we wouldn't take up that offer
  944. MattJ Or if someone wants to perform the task of tracking someone down and getting contracts sorted, that would be a way forward too
  945. MattJ In the absence of either of those things happening, we'll just continue as we are, with volunteers doing what they can, when they can
