The origins and purpose of the Community Council are explained on the main Community Council site, where you will also find a list of the current members.

These wiki pages are used to record the day to day running of the Council, e.g agendas and minutes of meetings, budgets, etc.


  • Agenda contains the agenda of the upcoming meeting and the current work status of topics / action items
  • Minutes of the past meetings
  • Calendar contains a list of future meetings
  • Meeting Guidelines describe e.g. how to prepare the agenda
  • Meeting Guidelines, New Action Items describes how you can raise an issue for the Community Council. It will be added to the Agenda of the next meeting.
  • For communication we use the IRC Channel #OOo-Council on freenode.

Council coordinator

The council works with a internal coordinator who looks after the planning and the progress of action items ... so basically, it is about poking the colleagues ;-) The aim is to improve the overall Community Council performance and to help to share the feeling of having a joined responsibility.

Current council coordinator: Juergen Schmidt (see Minutes 2010-06-10)

Additional information:

  • Next election expected: End of October 2010
  • A council coordinator is appointed every 4 to 5 months. She/he is chosen from the council members.
  • No formal change of rules intended.
  • Previous council coordinators: Cor Nouws (first one, 2009-05-28), Stefan Taxhet, Christoph Noack
