Thanks for organising it! The agenda looks solid.
I can’t make it unfortunately as I am in Antwerp for the week … I have a number of stuff to add but I’d rather leave priority to those who make it face to face for now. I know you’ll have to lot to cover so I just leave information on one point …
Regular meeting arrangements: Online
Simply a great idea. We have struggled with this in the world of http://coops.tech/. Sorry to bore you all again with this other community but I find it quite relevant. We tried twice https://community.coops.tech/t/video-call-for-international-exchange/1234 and https://community.coops.tech/t/cotech-community-call/582 and both have stopped or never happened. Elements of too much overhead for arranging infrastructure for video calls, lack of time, energy, concrete topics and diversity of members could have caused this … I’m not quite sure but it wasn’t working.
So, I would hope that if we do online meetings they will be on Matrix/IRC/whatever IM chat infrastructure we go with because it is simply low overhead and people can join and still be on the go. We might consider a meeting bot to make the meeting logs, minutes, notes, agreements and information for those that miss it (important!). I have a very nice experience with https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Zodbot and can recommend. Some people should take responsibility for running these meetings, we could try have a shifting rota. Happy to make a start here if needed.
EDIT: Added this note to the pad …
