Dear All,

Our power outage has been resolved.  Please see some of the links  
below to see how the Fluid Project
has handled early decision-making:

Commit Access

Coding and Commit Standards

Release Process

Fluid Licensing
works in an international, distributed group:

Our collaborative spaces

Our regular meetings

Our coordination including retrospectives

develops and designs our final products:

Our Development

Our User Experience

Our Products

Together, these documents (and more) begin to show how our community  
works, how our team makes decisions, what our culture is, and how we  
do our work.  These pieces together form the foundation upon which we  
do our work.  Some of our wiki pages are "antiqued," but hopefully  
this gives you a look into how we operate.

We have solid standards coupled with iterating often and early on all  
of our project work.

Another key feature of the Fluid Project is that we get things wrong.   
We try solutions and abandon them if they fail or are not the right  
solution.  A key part of our community depends on a level of comfort  
with trying, failing, and working together to develop a better solution.

We're excited to see OpenCast "do better" than we do.  And we're  
excited to work with you on doing that.

As is always the case with Fluid, please let us know if you have any  
comments or suggestions for how we can fix and improve our work.
