Some people have expressed publicly or privately an interest in exploring possibilities to have Discuss Space or an evolution of it run by volunteers. If there is community interest, we are open to do our part in a potential transfer of responsibilities with some common-sense conditions:
- The entire process should be agreed and driven by volunteers under their own responsibility. We Foundation staff would help upon request on topics that only we can address as current maintainers of Discuss Space.
- There needs to be a clear plan that combines guidelines for granting administrator permissions to certain users and a process that protects the privacy of existing Space users (whose data can be accessed by admins).
- The volunteer or small group of volunteers who intend to take over administration should be prepared to agree to these and other terms that come up as issues are surfaced in the transfer.
