The elected Squeak leadership
The Squeak project is run by volunteers, organized into teams. One of them, the Oversight Board, is elected annually by the community. It provides a legal, administrative and logistical home for the Squeak community.
What is it doing?
- building a legal presence - currently by working with the Software Freedom Law Center as part of their Conservancy;
- providing the network services that support the various mailing lists and repositories that in turn make a community possible;
- helping coordinate the various interest groups and projects being pursued by Squeakers;
- making decisions where there is no clear community consensus.
How is it run?
The team has seven members who meet online on first and third Wednesdays. They post meeting notes to the Squeak Oversight Board blog, and encourage the community to use those notes as a starting point for discussion.
How can I help?
- Volunteer to lead, assist, review, test - anything that needs doing in any software project also needs doing for Squeak. Take a look at the current list of teams to see if you are interested in joining one. Propose a new team if you see the need;
- Contribute to Trunk using the New Community Development Model;
- Look through the Mantis Database of bugs and see if you can help with solving problems;
