September 2008 - jdd Jean-Daniel Dodin http://dodin.org
think I make now the work previously quoted as "leader" or Chief coordinator. I don't like the "chief" or "leader" because I was not elected nor choosed by any democratic approach like a vote. I do the work because I find it usefull and nobody else wanted to do it :-);
- try to keep the LDP wiki in a usable status, creating new pages when necessary, often to summarise discussions or to frame them;
- try to moderate the discussion list, trying to make discussions end usefully with decisions... not to say I can always reach this goal.
Also I have login rights to "reggae", the new (August 2008) LDP server, "gabber" (the mail server) and the main LDP site at ibiblio. I have some connections with ibiblio admins that allows me, sometime, to fix problems.
