Hello,

Per the following emails and a discussion with Bruce Momjian on the
phone I am suggesting a change (and documentation) of the way
contributors will be determined and displayed on PostgreSQL.Org.

Reference:

http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-www/2008-03/msg00143.php
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-www/2007-12/msg00022.php
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-www/2007-11/msg00432.php

[1] The contributor label will be removed in favor of groups or teams.
Examples include: 

PostgreSQL.Org:

Core:
  * Members: Josh Berkus, Dave Page, Jan Wieck, Bruce Momjian, Peter 
  * List: pgsql-core (private list)

Sysadmins:
  * Members: Joshua Drake,  Marc Fournier, Devrim Gunduz, Magnus
Hagander, Stefan Kaltenbrunner, Dave Page, Robert Treat
  * List: sysadmins (link to subscribe form)

WWW Team:
  * Members: Joshua Drake,  Devrim Gunduz, Magnus Hagander, Stefan
Kaltenbrunner, Dave Page, Robert Treat
  * List: pgsql-www (link to subscribe form)

Regional Communities:

PostgreSQL Europe:
  * Members: (either a link to membership page or a list as provided by
PGEU)
  * List: pgsql-eu-general (link to subscribe form)
  * Website: http://www.postgresql.eu/
 
French Community:
  * Members: (either a link to membership page or a list as provided by
the French community)
  * List: whatever their list is
  * Website: http://www.postgresqlfr.org/

[2] Contributors will be determined for each team will be resolved by
the respective teams (e.g; who is a part of the team, or leaves the
team etc..)

[3] The listing shall be respective of PostgreSQL (as opposed to just
PostgreSQL.Org). Thus incorporating all international communities.

Presentation:

The best presentation for this should be argued out on -www but my
feeling is that we will change the /community/contributor page to have
links instead of listings. The links would describe in full what each
section is. For example:

Core:
Steering committee and release team for the PostgreSQL Software

WWW (link):
Web development team for PostgreSQL.Org

Sysadmins (link):
System administrators for PostgreSQL.oRg

PostgreSQL Europe:
European Non profit dedicated to assisting the European community

PostgreSQLFR:
French Non profit dedicated to assisting the French speaking community.

Thoughts, flames etc?

Once this is hashed out, I will put it on the wiki so there will be no
confusion in the future.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
