The Marketing Drupal group was created so we can begin to open source Drupal's marketing process and build a framework for freedom to happen as has been done for the code itself.
At the moment many who have expertise in this area simply have no say in the process and thus we do not currently benefit from their many cumulative years of experience.
The results of Mark Boulton's brand work clearly notes "Reinforcing the Brand: Everyone Plays a Role":
continuing to build a community that welcomes and respectfully encourages participation from all types of users; constantly showing people access points to the community, and pointing out that usability experts, designers, accessibility experts, and others, can all contribute (and showing them where they can do that)
If this group would merge with the marketing drupal group, the above plan would work.
Please let's work together and not make this brand just about what a few people think but adhere to our passion for principles.
I don't like the energy over the last few days on this, please let's sort this out - we all love the drupal brand, and however "right" you may feel about something, Drupal's not just about you, or me, etc. which is why we need a way for everyone who wants to be involved to be able to get involved.
