    This forum area is for users of LibreELEC community software releases. If you have chosen to run CoreELEC releases on your device please report your problems to their support forum: CoreELEC Forums where people familiar with their codebase hang out. Posts on CoreELEC will be closed and moved to an "unsupported" forum to ensure the focus of support here remains on LibreELEC users seeking help with LibreELEC software.

    This morning LibreELEC board member @xe received written notices from GDPR-2 and GDPR-1 demanding their GDPR Article-17 right to have all personal information held by the project deleted from our systems. They have further requested we remove all of their forum posts and purge any data stored on team webspace. To prevent further creation and propagation of their data while we clarify our GDPR obligations and investigate what technical steps may be required, we have suspended their accounts.

    It's a shame to see this level of deliberately awkward activity, but we aren't going to fight their decision. Other forks in our ecosystem (Lakka, OpenPHT, PlexEmbedded, etc.) exist happily as derivatives of LibreELEC and their team members regularly and proactively contribute to our codebase. From the outset CoreELEC proclaimed total independence and leading team members have repeatedly stated they will not contribute back to LibreELEC. We don't really care that CoreELEC exists and we've been ignoring derogatory statements for the sake of peace, but continuing to host their drama and noise in our forum has zero upside for LibreELEC if they refuse to participate in our project. It is unclear whether other CoreELEC contributors with presence in our forum will request the same trip to /dev/null or would prefer to retain their status and become supportive and helpful participants to our project.

    The Board

    Following the recent board election we started the important work of defining project bylaws. We also started to review project policies, some of which are long-running and documented but need revising, while others are more informal and need to be written down. One of those policies is our definition of a LibreELEC Community Build and the responsibilities of Community Build creators.

    Our requirements are simple and now apply retrospectively to all Community Releases. They can be read on the Wiki here:
    Minimum requirements for a LibreELEC Community Build

    Recognising what is/is-not a LibreELEC Community Build and defining common-sense rules allows the project team to focus on supporting community developers and the users they serve. We often provide dedicated sub-forums and webspace to help builders distribute and support their releases without incurring personal costs. In some cases we also hook their releases into core project assets such as the update mechanism and our add-on repository.

    In the next week we will reach out to a small number of community developers identified as non-compliant. If they are willing to work with the LibreELEC project team and address discrepancies we will be happy to allow continued use of our infrastructure. If they are not, we will be encouraging them to provide their own.

    Team voting has concluded and the following nominees are elected to the project board:

    • cvh is our forum admin and resident DVB/Tvheadend expert
    • davu is a forum super-moderator and enthusiastic bug hunter
    • lrusak has been the project technical lead over the last two years
    • milhouse is well known for his bleeding edge community test images
    • xe is our IRC channel admin and a FOSS advocate

    In statistics: 22/22 team members cast their vote. 1/5 of the board are Canadian, 2/5 are German, 2/5 are from the UK. 3/5 board members are also Team Kodi members. 4/5 board members come from the original group that forked from OpenELEC. 5/5 board members have contributed something to our GitHub repo. 3/5 board members (cvh, lrusak, milhouse) will serve a 24-month term while 2/5 board members (davu, xe) will serve a 12-month term.

    Thanks to all team members for voting (and agreeing to be team-members) and congratulations! to our new board members 🙂
