The Community.circle is slowly but steadily building up her programme. And as we go, we should agree some arrangements with the involved people.
First @mikemh is taking the lead in that, and that should be more than just aplauded. At the current stage Mike is already investing considerable energy. As such, and as “circle lead”, I think he should become an Ops member. This is not to mean that everyone in the circle should really become an ops member, that can be discussed at a case by case basis, and other arrangements can be thought of.
Why Mike should be an Ops member? 1) his time commitment is more than just a few hours per month, 2) as Ops member he’ll have access to the Ops member level of information, on NextCloud and Forum, and as such be able to follow more in detail what happens inside the cooperative 3) he’ll be able to engage ops members and seek synergy where that is needed. And maybe a 4) Mike already was an ops member in the early months of meet.coop and should not get drowned in the overload of info, or not that easily
IMHO the Community circle should have at least a few ops members, and be complemented with other committed user members or external parties (that can easily become members if they commit to do work in the circle).
How do you think about this?
