Manual / SOGS

PM Overview

The project is still on hold as of February 15, 2023. Each task has been reviewed on January 17, 2023 shortly after placing the project on hold. All the updates are available in the repo.

  • Interviews – The list of interviews is saved here and summaries are available for review here.

  • Research and Insights – Findings of the initial desktop research are available for review in the ops folder. Access is restricted. The Policy WG may delegate further reviewers when the time comes.

  • Survey Data – Survey Monkey access shared with Tamara on January 6 today. Discussion to be continued later. All the data has been saved in the ops folder (access is restricted). Question 26 includes personal data (stored in another folder).

  • Map of the Green Software Ecosystem | Organizations – Cameron is working on this separately. See details in this GH issue.

  • Editing – Once the report is available for review, it should be shared with the editor. Timings have changes so her availability should be double-checked when the time comes. See this issue:
    Final review by the editor · Issue #38

  • Design & Web – Jenya will create a PDF version while Osama will be working on the website:
    [SOGS] PDF creation for SOGS · Issue #36,
    [SOGS] Website creation for SOGS report · Issue #35

Marketing activities have been reviewed and summarized on January 3, 2023.

  • We are no longer promoting the survey.

  • ETA of the SOGS report: April (might change)

  • Format: website and downloadable PDF

  • The PDF is just a regular report, nothing fancy.

  • The website is explained in this doc and in this video (the approach might have changed recently). Basically the website should be driven by the insights/findings from the report. Each insight can be viewed on its own without reading the rest of the report, this means we will have to repeat content. You can go through the insights in any order, read the ones that you are interested in and ignore the rest.

  • Namrata’s input / advice might be needed on what titles to use for the insights. The PM should reach out when the time comes.
