Recently, I had a sudden idea to create a SIG group, but due to lack of experience, I encountered many minor challenges. Here, I have compiled some of my experiences, hoping to provide some reference for friends who are also interested in creating a SIG group. pride

First of all, what is a SIG group?

The whole process of SIG is Special Interest Group. Special interest group
SIG is a group that focuses on specific interests and has specific work goals. The establishment of the SIG group aims to encourage community members to more easily participate in the improvement of deepin/DDE, making activities related to the deepin community more open and transparent.
The SIG group will not replace existing community forums and unofficial groups, but will complement them and inject more vitality into the deepin community.
The SIG group will directly receive support from the deepin community committee to handle issues more efficiently. It will also be supervised by the deepin community to ensure the healthy development of group activities.

So what should I do?

Information preparation

When creating a SIG, you need to prepare the following information:

  • SIG group name (it is recommended to provide both Chinese and English names)
  • Team ID (lowercase letters and hyphens only)
  • Reason for creation
  • Group introduction
  • Scope and goals of activities
  • Open discussion channels
  • Group member information and group administrator’s GitHub account information

When you are ready, proceed to the next steps.

The activity platform can be any platform. For a public instant chat platform, it is recommended that groups use Matrix ( reference material )

In addition, according to Deepin's brand noun guidelines , when the word "deepin" alone refers to a Deepin distribution, the first letter is always lowercase, that is, deepin should be used instead of Deepin. This is important!

Although repositories for placing group projects are allowed to be created in deepin-community, group activities are not required to be conducted under GitHub. The group can choose any suitable location to carry out activities, such as Gitee, deepin forum, etc.

What should I do next?

  • Committee Review: The SIG Committee will carefully review your proposal to ensure that all information is accurate and meets the SIG Group's creation standards. If any inaccuracies are found, the committee will provide you with timely feedback so that you can make corresponding changes.
  • Revisions and improvements: Based on the committee’s feedback, you will need to make necessary revisions and improvements to the proposal. This may involve additions, amendments or adjustments to the documentation.
  • Merge and creation: When your proposal is finally approved by the committee and merged into the main branch, it means that the SIG group has been successfully created. At this point, you can officially start carrying out related activities and work of the SIG group.
  • Group information update: If the SIG group needs to update relevant information, you can edit the existing document according to the normal process and submit it to the committee for review through Pull Request. After the review is passed, these changes will be merged into the master branch to complete the update of the information.
