Sound familiar? Simplistic summary - In the September 29, 2011 blog by Paul Orwig, he provided an overview of discussions (which some members of the Joomla! Leadership Teams characterized as a surprise) held at the San Jose Summit to reorganize the current structure and essentially place all teams under the authority of what is now called OSM. The teams themselves may change as a result as may the name of OSM. In his blog he stated:
Yet in the discussion group on J!People, that suddenly went active again about 5 days ago after 20 days of inactivity, Paul Orwig again states:
Emphasis added is mine. Several people attempted to get additional clarification in the last five days and were again subjected to third degree cross-examinations by various members of current and past Joomla! Leadership including Andrew Eddie who has obviously come down on the side of restructuring. This group shows no real effort to respect the opinions of others even though they solicited those opinions. Paul Orwig who has repeatedly disrespected others and shut down the discussion when they attempted to correct one of his misstatements had the temerity to state:
So, here we are. We have one spokesperson that represents both CLT and OSM doing all of the communicating. No one from the LT other then Brad Baker making any public statement. Two former members of the CLT expressing their significant reservations about going forward. No motion or vote from OSM directing Paul Orwig to present this proposal. You tell me. This looks like its becomming a bait and switch operation to you?
