FIXME (Weiterer Ausbau)

This is how we organize ourselves:

  • Core-ORGA-Team
    • A bunch of people doing the central work. They are leading the board and organize all basic functions (money flow, web-hosting, central marketing, central services, actions (magazine, flyer) , …
    • They are also acting as primary support for coordinators.
    • Our goal is to have at least three people in the board to do the work together to prevent a situation where the lost of one person leads into treatment disability of the LPD.
  • Coordinators
    • Are people or groups coordinating a region or a country. As local natives, they are first contact for organizers and interested persons on site. They communicate with the core organization in organizational measures and, if necessary, make adjustments, such as collected data submissions to LEO, and so on. They form the top of the support on the ground and thus relieve the core team.
    • Coordinators are right now settled for DE and CH. BE/FR is to be negotiated ( — Administrator 2019-03-16 13:24)
      • In the broadest sense, the organisation of the LINUX Day (linuxday.it) in Italy [IT] is also one of the coordinators, since they have been organising it nationwide for decades and have been working with us.
  • Organizer and other interested people
    • Get support from the nearest coordinating office and are submitting entries in LEO to relieve the organization
    • They also add information where necessary
  • Supporter
    • Can contact suitable organizers to support them
  • Translators
    • Do the translation of documents as the website, LEO and others in a long term. They coordinate with the Core ORGA or the respective body.
  • Website: l-p-d.org (later may be also linux-presentations-day.TLD)
