Subject RE: Apachecon EU 2015, track 'How visions of the ASF contributors and ASF Products can help building Open Source Communities
Date Sun, 05 Jul 2015 22:23:35 GMT
I don't see the open meetings or ofbiz belong in a track that " brings together some of the
elements of the ASF philosophies to
build healthy communities, consider the user and introduce some of the
Apache product that any open source community can apply to ease the day to
day operations."

To my knowledge neither project is used in the way described in the abstracts within the ASF.

Subject: Apachecon EU 2015, track 'How visions of the ASF contributors and ASF Products can
help building Open Source Communities

HI All,

Please find below the details and sequence of talks of above mentioned
potential track.

*Introduction*

The ASF is the single biggest non profit organisation involved in
supporting communities to develop open source solutions. Being on the fore
front of open source development its portfolio encompasses numerous
software products that support businesses, governments and NGOs in key
areas like presenting web pages, business processes, development and big
data.
The contributors of the ASF come from all continents and organisations that
utilise the ASF products. As such key contributors have insights that can
help open source communities to stay healthy and grow. And various products
of the ASF can support the operational aspects of those communities.

This track brings together some of the elements of the ASF philosophies to
build healthy communities, consider the user and introduce some of the
Apache product that any open source community can apply to ease the day to
day operations.

*Talks*
#1 Talk 6115 - Communities matter: Developing and Enforcing the Apache Code
of Conduct, By Joan Touzet, Canada link:
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6115

This talk addresses the issue of the diversity needed in and already
available in the communities of open source projects, how project
management committees can attract talents and keep the entire community
happy.


#2 Talk 6085 - Will The Apache Maturity Model save your project? By
Bertrand Delacrétraz, Switzerland
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6085

This talk is about how to an open source community can measure and guard
the healthiness of its project(s).


#3 Talk 6071 - Conferencing with Apache OpenMeetings, Maxim Solodovnik
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6071

This talks is about the Audio & Video Conferencing solution of the ASF that
can be used in the operational area of the open source project and/or its
supporting organisation.


#4 Talk - Leverage Community Management with Apache OFBiz. By Pierre Smits,
The Netherlands

This talk is about how Apache OFBiz can be used to manage the contributor
base of the project(s) of an open source community and how delegation of
permissions management can ease the burden on those who make anything
happen. At the same time it can present various insights on who is part of
which project and in what kind of role.

#5 Talk - 6029 - It's OK - Consensus Reached. We've agreed to disagree! By
Sharan Foga, Czech Republic
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6029

Consensus is paramount in Apache projects when it comes to code. Opposing
viewpoints of contributors need to come together in order to reach
consensus. It can not be said to often that in order to have a healthy
project, contributors need to work towards an acceptable compromise and
express their consent when it comes to code changes. However, it must also
be brought repeatedly to the front light that consensus is not required
when it comes to procedural issues. There it is a nice to have.


#6 Talk 6168 - The Apache Way Theory. By Nick Burch, United Kingdom
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6168

This talk explains how the biggest non profit proponent of open source
development came to its philosophies and brought contributors all over the
world together to build some of the greatest open source products in
existence today.


#7 Talk 6168 - The Apache Way Practice, By Nick Burch United Kingdom
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6169

Theory is relevant, but tales of experiences, lessons learned help to give
the theory that extra punch to get the message across.

#8 Talk 6107 - Bridging the Gap Between Enterprise Users and Open Source.
By Mike Bates, USA http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp/proposals/6107

I see this presentation as a potential driving force to increase the
adoption of Open Source solutions in general and of Apache products in
particular. After all, no open source project can exists without users.


Should you have questions and or remarks regarding this, feel free to post.
