Re: [Proposal] Track non-code contributions in Jira

+1 Code is just one part of a successful open-source project. As long as the tasks are properly labelled and actionable, I think it works to put them into JIRA.

I fully agree and think it is a great idea.

I think that, next to visibility and keeping track of everything that is going on in the community, the other goal would be documenting best practices for future use.

I am also not sure, though, if JIRA is the best place to do so, as Austin raised. Introducing (yet) another tool on the other hand, might also not be ideal. Has anyone else experience with this from other Apache projects?

    I do see it useful to put in Jira tickets in for my director to have
    conversations on specific topics with people, for consensus
    building, etc etc.  So, I have seen it work even for non-coding tasks.

    It seems like much of #s 2-6 mentioned requires project management
    applied to those specific domains and is applicable elsewhere,
    wondering what constitutes "pure" project management in #1 (as it
    applies here)...?  In that light I'm just getting picky about
    taxonomy :-)

            Hi Beam Community,

            I'd like to start tracking non-code contributions for Beam,
            specially around these six categories:
            1) Project Management
            2) Community Management
            3) Advocacy
            4) Events & Meetups
            5) Documentation
            6) Training

            The proposal would be to create six boards in Jira, one per
            proposed category, and as part of this initiative also clean
            the already existing "Project Management" component, i.e.
            making sure all issues there are still relevant.

            After this, I'd also create a landing page in the website
            that talks about all types of contributions to the project.

            The reason for doing this is mainly to give visibility to
            some of the great work our community does beyond code pushes
            in Github. Initiatives around Beam are starting to spark
            around the world, and it'd be great to become an Apache
            project recognized for our outstanding community recognition.

            What are your thoughts?
