KM4Dev is largely a volunteer effort. As we grew, it became clear that we needed some sort of governance group to support the community and help respond to its needs. Hence, the Core group was created in May 2004.
The Core group interacts via a Dgroup -- km4devcoregroup[AT]dgroups.org -- which you can also use to contact its members.
All Core group meetings are documented here.
Currently the Core group consists of community members acting in a voluntary capacity as a steering committee for KM4Dev. Core group members contribute their time and energy towards supporting the needs of KM4Dev members and building the community. The Core group terms of reference are found here.
