Hi, Webmind and myself gathered today in working out a tool guardian proposal which you can read more about later in this e-mail. We want to provide this proposal to the ALV and invite you now to provide feedback. TL;DR, this is a proposal that proposes members taking responsibility for different tools in the space, we propose calling them tool guardians. Tool guardians take responsibility for upkeep, documentation and training of tools when necessary and proposes and maintains a budget for the association for the tool(s) they are responsible for. How would this function? =============== In order for a tool to have tool guardianship there need to be a minimum of two guardians. This in order to share responsibility and improve availability. The board has the final say over this budget but trusts the expertise of the tool guardians. Becoming a tool guardian ================ ### Taking guardianship of an unguarded tool. With at least one other potential guardian create a plan and budget for the tool, then contact the board with your proposal. After board approval, the board announces the future guardians and their plan and budget on the official communication channel. If there are objections, questions or remarks, people can contact the guardians or the board directly. If within there aren't any objections to the guardians, the guardians gain guardianship over the tool. ### Joining a guardianship If you want to join an existing tool guardianship, contact the existing tool guardians. ### Sleeping or disfunctioning guardianship Please contact the board. Giving up your guardianship ================= Contact the board and the board will inform the membership. The board will facilitate finding new guardians if needed or can choose to disband the guardianship. When budget proposals need to be submitted ============================ The board timely informs the guardians on when their budgets are due. Going over or under budget ========================= If a guardianship wants to go over budget, they will first discuss this with the board, who then has the discretion to allow an exception where the finances permit this. If a guardianship goes under budget the remaining finances can be distributed elsewhere, if the guardianship want to take this to the next year, this is at the discretion of the board.
