Sounds fine. However, it may be worth to add some note about organisational structure (for-profit motives? hierarchical structure?). I think we should push ourselves, as early as possible, to define core values (however loose) in some formalised way. A lot of those might be implicit right now through the IRL meeting. I would be happy to join a group who is working on this. For CoTech, this was as short and simple as https://wiki.coops.tech/wiki/CoTech_Constitution.
Some of the points on LibreHosters kickoff meeting are worth revisiting:
Who is a LH, who is not?
For the moment, as the network is still in buildin phase, participants of the Amsterdam meeting are the members. Others can be vouched for to work with a friends of friends trust method until the network has some more solid definition to accept members more largely.
To be part of the network you should be an active member. What is means is still to be defined, but something like contributin an hour per month … (learning from the CHATONS story)
We talked a bit about requirements to join, or get kicked out. The followint are just loose notes of our chattings, nothing decided yet :
- Libre Hosters should provide help for each other
- No hate speech
- FLOSS (using and producing) also non software stuff we produce should be open
- OS HAS to be free software
- give report on proprietary software they are using
- 100%? can I be a LH if I use 10% non free software? – need to be transparent why the proprietary is necessary, try to improve together
- drivers are fine
- sharing documentation
- transparency of organisation
- Making money should not be your motivation (not paying more than X times the minimum wage for example)
- 7 cooperative principles
- IN COMMON Charter
- facilitate portability, help users move to and from your server
- no data mining
