Are you able to estimate those at all, Nicu? I know I had to make
estimates in a number of cases because I don't keep a detailed record
I made some estimations and completed it, but I see now I was referred
by others for some different different areas, so I can take it more times.
Were there other questions you had problems with, besides the ones
asking for time estimates? That might interest the researchers as
For the "ambassadorial work" activity I can hardly give a time estimate
(since it is not the main thing I do), so I choose "1-5 hours per week".
I also find difficult to understand/quantify "resources", "stability",
"urgency", "complexity", they do not seems to apply to every type of
activity we do here.
Take "difficulty" as an example (I talk now about "ambassadorial"
being challenging is a good thing or not? (I think it is). Talking about
Fedora is not hard to do, the hard part is doing so in front of an
audience :D The same about "difficulty" for design, I like doing it, I
don't find it hard (it may be "challenging"), I find it fun. The hard
part id finding the time for doing it.
"Efficiency" and "Quality" are also hard to measure for things like
design and ambassadorial work, anything I say is subjective.
