- We don't have a clear view of what's the current status of our technical projects.
- There is a perceived lack of transparency that generates lack of trust.
- It's not clear what are the current problems, so people with knowledge, time and willing to help don't know where it would be more useful to spend their time.
- When we notice something is going wrong, it's too late to act, which results in failed projects.
Send every Friday an update of the work done during the week on all the Faircoop technical projects.
[To be proposed in the general assembly in october]
What this is not
This is not a tool for worker exploitation. We are building a new world where money is not used to maximize production output sacrificing human well-being.
There will be good weeks and there will be bad weeks. Contributors to Faircoop projects can get sick, get tired and need a break, attend personal issues, etc.
A weekly report is not a way to force everybody to rush and put work on top of everything else.
What this is
This is a tool to be transparent and sincere about our work, to engage new people eager to contribute on the hard problems we are trying to solve, and
to notice as soon as possible when thing are not going as planned and we need to concentrate more efforts on specific tasks.

Every week, any time during Friday, all the people who have worked on faircoop technical projects during the week will send a reply with their status report. It is free form, but it would be good if it answers: What I did this week? what I would like to do next week? what is blocking me?

Saying things like: nothing to report this week is completely valid, and useful.
People can send their reports earlier on the week if they can't do it on Friday.
If people will be absent during a whole week and do no work, they should notify about it so it can be noted in the report.
