  • Any technical efforts to maintain existing systems or develop new systems should primarily be organised here. However sub-groups may be set up for specific projects for those involved - and anyone else interested. Project teams may assign roles to individuals. These teams should report back to Tech Group on progress.
  • We will aim to document our systems on the wiki.
  • Freegle Tech will act on requests from the Board, Freegle Central and other Working Groups. It will also take the lead when appropriate in suggesting new possibilities.
  • Any significant proposals will be referred to the Board and Freegle Central for approval, as appropriate.
  • We welcome all Freegle volunteers as members, even if not taking part regularly. We may work with people outside Freegle, after checking with the Board, within the group and elsewhere.
  • We will report back to Freegle Central at appropriate intervals, eg every 3 months at a minimum.
