UDS: Community Round Table

Today’s community round table session had many interesting topics, but one that hit home for me was about bureaucracy and red tape. Many in the room made the assumption that this was only referring to top down bureaucracy, but for me I realized that this can happen with smaller teams much farther down from the top. If teams, like loco teams, have too much formality and structure to them new potential contributors are exposed to a rigid and unfriendly environment that inhibits them as they begin to interact with the global Ubuntu Community and the varied projects under its umbrella. My experience involved two such teams so I have seen the affects in-person. Later today the first leadership summit organized by Jono Bacon will take place and I hope this topic is broached.
