The goal of this issue is to create a document that will explain clearly what is our mission with the Piwik platform, and how the community and the Piwik team are working together to make this vision a reality.
- The new page on the website should be linked from the left menu eg. below the Roadmap link.
- Our mission statement is:
To create, as a community, the leading international open source web analytics platform, that gives every user full control of their data.
- Currently we have a public document detailing our Roadmap. This page is useful, but it also lists some items which are not actually related to the roadmap. For example we lists "our values" and our "mission statement". By creating a new page that focuses on our vision, values, culture and mission, we will help our project grow in the right direction, that we are all on the same page, and that everyone understands the great and important mission that is ours at Piwik.
- About 6 months ago we were challenged by several community members who mentioned various issues they had with Piwik in particular with the number of bugs that were found in each release. As a result we adapted our work and I wrote a blog post that explained this change of culture. This was very useful, but we now need more: hence this issue.
Please comment if you have some suggestions or ideas!
Wisdom is to have dreams that are big enough not to lose sight when we pursue them!
This issue has been duplicated by these other ones: - Updating Piwik Mission statement and values RFC #8518 - Make the Mission and Values more visible (a top page?) at piwik.org #8513
