Subject: Re: [Inkscape-board] Proposal for board meeting
An IRC meeting is an excellent idea.
Any day at noon PDT (9 PM CEST) is OK with me. Thursdays I have an SVG
WG meeting at 1:30 PM PDT (10:30 CEST).
My agenda items would be:

I made some edits to the Code of Conduct and I'm fairly satisfied with
how it looks right now. However, we need some more information on how
we would handle violations; in particular, we should have a public
e-mail address of something similar that can be used to report
Do we have anything we can put there? Who should be contacted in case
of problems on IRC, website, mailing list, etc.?
Best regards, Krzysztof
After spending some time working with the Project editing interface I
have a bucket full of comments:
0. I can imagine the amount of work that went into creating the
interface. I want to first say I appreciate all the effort!
1. The interface is very slow. It makes it difficult to figure out how
the site works. Clicking on one of the project name takes so long to
bring up that project's information that one wonders if that was the
correct way to do it. If the interface cannot be sped up then at least
some instructions should be added to the web page. (e.g. "Click on
project name to edit that project's parameters.")
2. SVG's are not allowed for the Banner and Logo!! I've heard that
there is some great Libre Graphics program that can produce SVGs that
scale better than PNGs on the web...
3. The Logo is required to be 150x150 px but it is displayed at a
different resolution leading to blurring. (See #2 for solution.)
4. Can't change "Proposer". The initial projects should have "Inkscape"
as the proposer.
5. Can't format the "Project Updates". We should be able to use at
least a limited set of HTML tags.
6. "Project Update" is not a good title for the initial project
description. We should have "Project Description" (or something
similar) followed by a "Project Update" section.
7. What does "Importance" mean. It is not clear what the input should
be (text or number), what the numbers mean (low number more important
than high number?), and what is the range of acceptable numbers. A drop
-down menu might be better here.
8. How are the project fund raising goals set? I didn't see that in the
9. The project summaries on "https://inkscape.org/en/project/" should
be customizable and not just first few lines of the "Project Update".
10. It's time to get rid of the tripling of projects on the Projects
