I am not sure who you have been talking to but I don’t think there is much formal policy at all and certainly no stance on anything political. I’m sorry to hear that you or anyone else has this impression about the project.
I know there was the thing about NFTs that did not get much support but I think that was more about issues with NFTs than anything else, I for one really appreciated the sentiment of the idea even if I didn’t think NFTs were the right solution for haiku due to the environmental impact.
I think if you are struggling to find who you can talk to for an interview the most likely explanation is that the developers are busy and a bit shy and no one particularly wanted to volunteer to be interviewed.
I think the press/marketing side of haiku is basically just some people on the forum/community with relevant skills/interests who said they could help out writing material/images and doing some other bits and pieces. This just means that the devs dont have to do it and they have more time for developing. The marketing team aren’t formally associated with the project in an organisational way. Similar for e.g. the forum mods.
The only formal structure/legal entity is haiku inc that mostly deals with donations and how to use them, pay server bills etc, and copyright/trademark/IP issues. Haiku inc doesn’t have any control over how the project is managed or directed, or any involvement with development or anything like that, at all.
The developers have control over who can commit code and have a voting system to decide when someone should be granted commit access. Code goes through peer review in any case, and there are some rules around how many approvals from people with commit access are needed before something can be merged. So basically the only “power” in the system is having commit access or not.
The decisions about how the project moves forward are basically when someone wants to work on something they do it. They discuss it with other devs as necessary, and the code goes through review. There is a list of ideas and other resources on the website too. But there’s no formally laid out plan or assigning of tasks. And literally anyone can write code and submit it on gerrit.
So everything is really informal, basically.
And my relationship with haiku is none, I am just a user and, very irregularly, a code porter. So take everything I’ve said as non-official and possibly wrong. But I’ve been closely following haiku since the start so hopefully I’m not too far from the mark.
