Hi friendica community!
This is a proposal for the #friendica
community to evolve this friendica server into a community driven forum server.
What are your thoughts on this? rewrite of a proposal expressed in reduced conversation 5 month ago написал: Pulsa para abrir/cerrar
tupambae (Guaraní) → commons
Forum pages server
Day of inception: 5 Diciembre, 2011
Host tupambae.net: Expires 13/10/2016
Domain tupambae.net: Expires 02/11/2016
The shared webhosting has right now several friendica and phpBB boards installed.
The friendica installation itself is running some how slow and "buggy"
tupambae.net - federated forums 3.4.3
active useres 6 month: 22
active users 1 month: 14
total users: 22
automated github update master branch sundays
Actual financial status:
at least about 8 LTC [28 USD] + (200 fair + X)
Available funds should be used as guaranty for hosting/server.
The shared hosting wich is buggy right now might be adaptable if well trimmed due to recent changes in the friendica code.
(not really )
These are ought to be funds that shouldn't be touched. They are for to guaranty server expenses in case the community can't fund them and should become a security (Ruecklagen), if possible to cover two years of the contracted server costs. Surplus due to an eventual value increase of the savings should be invested (not spend) for the general goals and has to be discussed and agreed on by the community.
Community driven friendica instance to end up with:showcase server-hostingstandard community forumsmirror for important community forumsTesting environment for coders, driven and maintained by the community.
All data belong to the respective profiles/communities.
(as is right now by default in the friendica universe)
Commercial advertisement as a means of anything is discarded by default.
(as it is in the friendica universe right now)
This does not mean that for example press bots, GNUlinux promotion, integration and/or investigation of other open source tools should be blocked, but that the up to the date "established" friendica FLOSS culture is the basic common origin of the kind of cooperative social and privacy aware agreement to promote.
The actual composition should stay in place:
In other words, as no special terms are set, local legal terms (Iceland) do apply.
The "official" administration is "showcased" by the implementation of the use of multisig wallets.
The published public master key #MPK represents tupambae.net, members chosen by the community coders/forumadmins/community should help to administrate eventual funds and fullfill mediator positions, that aren't mend to be anything but a plan B in case of disagreement or to rescue funds that else would become frozen or get lost. (unexpected absence of one of the other keys)
The aspect of language related issues dedicated to an internet community should implicate that support/discussion in English always has to be available, like right now.
Transition:The actual site administration profile @TupambaeNet has to pass the site admin configuration to a profile administered by the community (coderadmin).Exclusive access to ftp and SQL has to be passed over to a coderadmin, the actual administration proposes @Tobias in the first place, to establish "sovereignty" on the data and the installation.
(not an exclusive proposal)Direct communication to the support staff of the hosting for the coder admin has to be established.
(update → in work, email integration doesn't work properly)The creation of multisig wallet should be discussed.A friendica profile with the first bitcoin address of the wallet shold be created.
The actual webhosting contract gives the community a year to evaluate the best hosting setup for the proposal. The recommendation of the actual administration is to maintain location and provider for several reasons like:midsized provider driven by GNUlinux community principals with a responsive personal attentionfavorable legal environmentrenewable energy as electricity sourceneutral aspect to any national predilections or interestsexpensive law suits due to uncommon legal language
The hosting should most probably be moved to an own web hosting instance or ideal to VPS with maybe testing instances of other networks like #hubzilla, #diaspora*, #GNUsocial so coders can have some kind of test environment.
Domain registry remains as is.
Exclusive use of domain and all sub domains for the community meanwhile agreement is in place.
As the domain name ownership remains as it is, the cost for it's maintenance remain at the expenses of the owner. The "privacy aware protected" owner has no interest in even become notice of "internal affairs" of the project as it is proposed here, or content related issues of the site. In any case the owner expects a "fair codex" behavior as proposed and expressed.
tupambae.net doesn't pretend to retain any kind of "vote" over (or alongside) to the community decisions, but offers to impersonate one of the master public keys to ensure a correct use of the funds and "established" concepts. As the site itself already reflects a kind of own "established" identity, reflected by the existing profiles in the public directory and the existing content, it probably might expect to be heard as an opinion if it looks like the concept tupambae.net is at risk or at the risk to be disrespected.
