Drutopia is a member-owned cooperative. All members have equal voting power to elect the Leadership Team, the ability to become a project maintainer, set the strategic goals of Drutopia and inform the technical roadmap.
To become a member of Drutopia, a person must do to the following -
- Pay an annual membership due of $10-100 ($50 recommended) or one time lifetime membership of $100
- Agree to the Drutopia Code of Conduct
The Leadership Team can make strategic decisions regarding Drutopia. This includes vision, mission, goals, outreach strategy and target audiences, licensing. Decisions are made by consensus.
Joining the Leadership Team¶
The current leadership team is:
We are currently looking for a representative for front-end development. Open positions will be filled by consensus from the current leadership team.
Once the project has been established for a longer time a democratic process driven by Drutopia members at large will be implemented.
Leadership Team Elections¶
Elections of the Leadership Team will happen annually, with our first election to be held November 2018.
Working Groups make tactical decisions. Each working group has a working group lead. This lead also has the project maintainer role on the project. These are informed by the strategic decisions made by the leadership team. This includes approving pull requests, creating feature requests, determining technical and architectural approaches to the project.
All commits are made by creating a pull request. Any maintainer can approve a pull request. Any Drutopia member who has had a commit accepted to the project can become a maintainer if they’d like. If at any time a maintainer violates the Drutopia Code of Conduct their maintainer privileges will be suspended until maintainers and the leadership team resolve the issue.
