DRAFT Call for Plone 4.x Framework Team Members

Would you like to help choose what goes into Plone 4?

The Plone Framework team is now receiving applications for membership in the
Plone 4 Framework Team.

The Framework Team will be responsible for evaluating the PLone Improvement
Proposals (PLIPS) for Plone 4.x. The team also nominates the release manager
to the Plone Foundation Board, which does the hiring. PLIP evaluation

members also follow PLIP implementation, and make recommendations to the
Release Manager.

   risks and benefits;
   - Time to keep up with discussions on the Framework Team mailing lists;
   - The ability to occasionally budget a significant amount of time for
   evaluating PLIPs in detail as feature-lock deadlines approach;
   - The ability to work with SVN well enough to test PLIP integration and
   implementation for final evaluation;
   - The personality to get along well in a flexible, give-and-take group
   process and to accept and support group decisions.

New Framework Team members will be chosen by existing Framework Team members
and involved FWT alumni. Considerations will include many criteria beyond
the simply technical. The new team must be balanced in skills and likely to
work well together.

Please note something new: the Plone 3.x Framework Team will continue to
work on enhancing Plone 3.x during the development of Plone 4 and possibly
