The stats are available again, however they can’t be the only metric to decide who can join the dev team. Past contributions are important, but not a requirement.
What is important to be a dev team member IMO:
- goal (develop and maintain module, validate bugs, implement issues solution…)
- availability, willingness (occasional, periodic, continuous…)
I’d measure them both with code commits and activity on this community forum. I belive the #development category should become the place where development discussions and decisions occur.
I’m striving to put the decision process on this forum as much as possible, though I’ve been a bit busy on the upgrade tool development and extra-community activities in the last weeks.
During yesterday’s hangout I promised @mark_nl to be more responsive about development issues and I asked him to poke me as needed.
What do you think?
