- do not want to provide fake information but will do so if that is the only way to consume the Survey.
Survey Objective WAS made clear when survey window to participate required the volunteers to provide personal / professional information.
Survey Results ARE available at $0USD cost yet partially restricted to the 3 consumers listed above.
Even after I explained that the requirement to the right of the Surveys is there so that the Marketing Committee "tracks" who/where is consuming the results, I sense their residual conflict AND leftover concern that the current method of Survey consumption is not #ossFRIENLY as the 2018 Survey Results.
Are we willing to negotiate process before substance?
Are we ok to let many walk away? It is a choice to renounce Jakarta EE as it is today, but we could work on becoming more explicit, unambiguous & public on how we handle announcements, specially after feedback loop spaces are put into place to allow for such solid/rational feedback to exist.
the main page of the Jakarta EE website says: Powered by participation, Jakarta EE is focused on enabling community-driven collaboration...
We- are in such a fun environment that shows we, the Jakarta EE ecosystem has work to do to ensure that future initiatives in the branding-side synchronize not only with the ones involved in their execution but also that the execution synchronizes with the Project mission statement--- which enables and feeds via Community Driven Collaboration.
It is not enough for only 1 side to have clarity, the other side, our consumers - even those who do not yet know that they will be affected with Jakarta EE 9 release-- must gain clarity.
In 2 days, I have been a mediator, who understood that I am not able to normalize the process, that is not how Open Source works.
This email is long, it doesn't pursue anyone's ratification.
This email looks for a conversation on current surveys results' access (2019 & 2020), can we adjust what currently is and justify our actions on the basics that it matches the Jakarta EE mission statement?
Or, do we adjust the blog announcement to say: "partially free" as it is the correct wording.
Lastly, to obtain the results of the Survey, who exists because of volunteers who chose to participate on it Q&A and call it "...services you requested below such as this ebook" was sour for more than half of those users who provided feedback.
How does subscribing to the Eclipse Foundation communication forums relates to the Jakarta EE Survey? Was the most common question I got.
--- As usual, happy to share- openly!
Lets stay safe & remember, because we do-- we are the lucky ones who get feedback. Jakarta EE is lucky to have so many that care to prioritize #sharingIScaring.
