On October 30, 2011, Paul Orwig summarized the next steps for the proposed reorganization of the Joomla! Leadership:

  • Let's discuss and decide if we still want to move forward with the changes that we agreed upon in San Jose as proposed in the blog, or
  • do we want to adopt one of the alternate proposals that came out of the JPeople discussion, or
  • do we want to not make any changes.

Interpretation:

  • Do we go forward and ignore the feedback from the community?
  • Do we adopt one or more of the community's suggestions from J!People?
  • Do we leave things as they stand now?

It's all about disenfranchisement isn't it? That, combined with a severe accountability deficit has resulted in the minority (the 1% - Joomla! Leadership) fixing the system so that the majority (the 99% - Joomla! Community) have lost trust. Once the community loses trust in the core fairness of the Joomla! system then the system itself is in deep trouble. Currently it seems that the Joomla! Leadership is thinking of its own interests as distinct from the interests of the Joomla! Community when instead it should be bending over backwards to ensure that the two groups are on the same track together.

The good will earned by an accountable and transparent OSM is one of, if not the most important, of its assets. Volunteers will invest their time in Joomla! when they trust that OSM is acting ethically. And developers and users of Joomla! will return for services, and recommend Joomla! to others, when OSM has shown to be accountable for its actions.
