[Qgis-developer] a lesson to be learned?

I think that DT (Dunc Tank) is quite different from what we proposed for QGIS.

1) They hired RMs (release managers) while we want to hire experienced
    developer working on code.
2) They do not define well what work is payed exactly. We want to fix bugs
    from bug tracker.
3) They dont measure the work which was done. We expect regular
    reports from the hired developer saying which bugs were fixed and
    we will be able to calculate at least price per bug (obviously it does not
    say much but we have at least something)
4) It is not clear to me how they have chosen those 2 RMs. We opened
    the possibility to apply for everybody and we are going to vote
    to choose one.

If there are any objections we should definitely vote (gang of 13)
1) If we want to hire somebody
2) If so, vote about the process, especially if PSC or G13 should vote
    on applicants.

So far, my impression was that we have general consensus to hire
somebody to fix bugs and release 0.8 as nobody said nothing
against this idea.
