PEAR Group Meeting Sunday 20th May 2007

Looks like the meeting will be on Sunday the 20th 7pm UTC, check the pear clock for your timezone

You should all watch this before the meeting:

  • Review last weeks action items
  • Review decision making process
  • Vote on vice president
  • Schedule some future meetings
  • Defining Collectives
  • Review RFC Proposal 1)
  • Getting more people involved
    • Mentor Program
    • Reduction of adversarial attitude to new proposals
    • Community Outreach program (phpwomen, phpgtk, users groups)
    • PEAR Evangelist(s) who reach out to other libraries/frameworks/communities to try and foster PEAR use within their projects
    • Overall attitude and behaviors of current developers
  • Figuring out what people think of PEAR (and how we can make that positive)
  • I don't think its all great thoughts
  • Lots of people are turned off by the installer21
  • We have lots of positive aspects too, how do we focus on them
  • Website organization/updates
    • get users' feedback. A lot of people use pear or even write articles yet very little exists to show this material on the site
  • Review Suggestions from:
  • Dealing with unmaintained/deprecated/dead packages
    • Also dead pepr proposals
  • Thoughts on PEAR2
    • Creating some sort of roadmap to move us forward
  • Creation of working groups to move projects forward
    • Reviewing RFCs
    • Creating a mentoring program
    • Community outreach
    • Evangelists (Driven by Greg?)
      • Success Stories
    • porting peardoc to livedoc (mainly helping the php effort, has to be this summer, phillip has more details)
    • Website Look/Feel Redesign/Update
    • Some kind of news effort, weekly/bi-weekly/monthly, perhaps working with Steph, this would only be couple of people that would over see the project and other people should be able to contribute easily
      • Good way to get outside people more in sync what's happening in the community
  • PEAR's week of code (David)
    • Idea
    • Sponsorship
    • Priorities
  • Tools
    • how to keep track of all that (wiki, trac, other: basecamp, etc) ?
    • have a serendipity install or other to manage publishing news on the site (committing to cvs and updating the site is not the greatest thing). We can also have a PEAR official blog.
  • Some sort of Design Guide to go along with coding standards, this would be a more in depth guide covering some common patterns guidelines for class/method sizes etc, would also be non binding just a guide, would need lots of community help
