Happy Monday! Our next meetup is today 2021-01-18T16:00:00Z → 2021-01-18T17:00:00Z. Here’s the agenda:
Discuss new Koa issues, if any: see the BTR board .
Discuss ongoing commitments.
New working group leader election: Adolfo R. Brandes (@arbrandes) from OpenCraft applied to the position and I am supporting his application. If his selection is not challenged (for instance by a competing candidate) then Adolfo will take over the group in the coming days.
New working group leader election.
Adolfo R. Brandes (@arbrandes) shared roadmap and strategy to address big issues of the working group. You can read and discuss the proposal here. As far as I know, no other candidates applied for this role, so if no objections will be raised, he’ll be hosting 1 February meeting.
In light of the fact Regis has given me the figurative Key to the Kingdom, last week (literally this one: ), and as suggested in my modest proposal, I think we should try and do more asynchronously; i.e, in this forum and on Slack. I haven’t seen a majority of dissentions to this particular point, so with that in mind (and also because the meetup otherwise scheduled for tomorrow is just not accessible from my timezone!), I propose cancelling tomorrow’s meetup, replacing it with a thread in this forum.
I’ll create a dedicated thread for this purpose, tomorrow, perhaps calling it “BTR Weekly”, and link back to it here. Nothing fancy: the idea is to review what was done in the past week, and plan the next one - much like during the Zoom call.
I’m not suggesting we get rid of them all - let’s just reduce the frequency to bi-weekly. So one of the first things to plan will be the next face-to-face meetup, on February 1st. To be fairer to both eastern and western group members, how about if we try and pick a new time? Please select your timezone and paint over all the times that are doable for you, even if not ideal:
We have a winner! Not an unanimous winner, but almost. The time which is least inconvenient for everybody that voted is 16:00 UTC.
This means we’ll next meet on 2021-02-01T16:00:00Z. I’ll still working on our agenda, but in the meantime, this is the new event!
If you’d rather subscribe to the new calendar instead, here’s the link, also in ical. (We should discuss finding a way for the group to “own” a calendar, instead of having it jump to different organizations on every leadership change.)
Quick announcement: like with the Contributor’s Meetup, I’m opting to move ours one hour earlier. This is for the simple fact that most of our participants are in the northern hemisphere (which doesn’t include me, btw), and Daylight Savings Time kicks in pretty soon.
