Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Clarify the role of the Champion as an "incubation coordinator" (was: should podlings have informal chairs?)
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2011 22:09:13 GMT
As member of a PPMC whose champion continued after formation of the podling, I would miss someone
in that role.  

Also, the notion of the champion as the podling mentor herder has a certain appeal. 

At the moment, our champion is the person who performs many of the actions that require more
than PPMC committer karma, and having that spread around (but not diffused out of existence)
would be great.

Great stuff, and great discussion.  Thanks in particular Bertrand for 
making it a specific proposal.  +1

Correct - from the organizational point of view, the champion role as 
defined is almost more about ensuring the mentors are working, and 
ensuring podling reports are done well - and not necessarily about 
actively mentoring and working with the podling committers.

Obviously, in many/most cases the champion will be a mentor too, but it 
isn't strictly part of what we need the role to be.

Make sense?

And although I understand there are some issues with the choice if the 
word, I'd still suggest staying with "Champion", since it's already in 
use and fits pretty well.
