Xoops Community Manifest : moving forward past negative attitudes #1
Hello friends,

as proposed in this "letter to community"'s comment, here are some quickly thoughts.

Those are only quick words, please propose enhancements and new wordings. Some will turn those words into phrases as soon as our ideas will be defined and accepted by the community.

What is the XOOPS project
---------------------------
- opensource project
- driven by the xoops.org community
- and XOOPS local support communities

what is XOOPS ?
--------------
- minimalist but extensible CMS (or ECM?)
- object oriented
- with a Versatile/ flexible Group Permissions System
- secure
- Ease-of-use
- Large choice of add-ons (modules, themes)
(etc.)

what is the XOOPS project vision?
------------------------------------
- move forward to a more professional platform
- keep the out of box concept
- offer the best modular platform for web php based applications
(etc.)

How is its community ?= the XOOPS community manifest
----------------------------------------------------
- the community recognize the strengh of opensource development, and incitate each member to share knowledge
- each member is able to hear others opinion. It's up to each to convince others by discussion
- recognize the role of past founders/active members/lead developers without denigration
- is willing to develope innovation by maintaining friendly atmospheere, and ask each member, for that purpose, to act with humility and the willing of helping other members
- recognize the benefit of participative attidudes, cooperation, team building, and true/fair relationships,
- and finaly wants to promote opensource spirit/attitudes and to federate its members energies for the benefit of their client and their own (the powered by you concept)
(etc.)

let's improve that.
perhaps the first part should be moved in a new thread

Re: Xoops Community Manifest : moving forward past negative attitudes #4
Glad to see you use the expression Open Source Spirit.
After all, the fights seems first to be something bad
but finally have been something healthy and have pulled out
something good, that we should remember: as long as we avoid
a selfish attitude, we can share, learn from others and, alike
project resources, every company, individual and community
member, we'll be able to evolve.

Cheers,
I like people more than machines or money. But that's me!
Lets do something good and great: Lets do open source!
