TL;DR: my tasks/changes need new (co-)owners and I offer to free my WG seat
Things (in terms of my contributions to Fedora / the Cloud SIG) looked
really great in 2014Q1 and there was no reason to assume Q2 would be
any different. That's why I felt happy and enthusiastic to take
ownership of a few tasks/changes back then and my personal plan was to
have all of them ready by the end of Q2. Well, early on I stumbled
over much more and harder to (yet) overcome technical issues (mostly
with anaconda) than expected and some unexpected bureaucracy didn't
make it easier, either. Soon, my available time shrank as well and has
hit zero a few weeks ago - really before I could get *anything* done.
The outlook is bleak, and I currently don't expect I will have much
time for contributions until at least end of September which is
obviously very late for anything F21. From October, I might have a
little more time once again depending on what kind of $dayjob I might
end up doing from then on - Fedora related offers welcome! ;)
Now, I don't think the (WG's) idea has ever been that the "owners" are
supposed to do all (or really any of?) the work so I hope I didn't
block things, but since I haven't noticed any work on those tasks I
thought I should finally give a long overdue heads-up about my
situation so people can act accordingly.
I take all the blame that needs taking for things not delivered/-able
on time, etc. and offer my apologies to everyone who feels left down
by my irresponsible behavior.
So - we have a meeting scheduled tomorrow at 9 a.m. Central (or 14:00:00
to 15:00:00 UTC for those of you not fortunate enough to live in St.
I'm concerned about the timing because:
- It's the day before a U.S. holiday and a lot of folks tend to take
time off early.
- I have a conflicting 9 a.m. meeting, and I suspect one or two other
folks also do.
- Attendance has been pretty light in general.
I suspect we do need to talk about changes freeze, though? That's coming
up on 8 July.
