Hi all, (just got back from a very nice long weekend at the GSoC summit in San Jose :))
We had a nice discussion with Brad and Karen over lunch at the GSoC summit.
Cool, can you give us a more elaborated report on your meeting with them?
What came up is having regular board meetings. I think this would be great for us and make things a bit more structured / easier to follow. How about we schedule a meeting (for board only) once every month, e.g. every first Monday of the month? What do you think?
A monthly or bi-weekly meeting would be fine with me, if someone will volunteer to send out day-before reminders.
Monthly. On an easy, fixed schedule or with a new date determined at the end of each meeting.
One thing I wonder though, is do we really have enough to discuss as a group? This mailing list tends to be very low traffic...
Even if we don't have anything to discuss, that is fine. We can always cancel a meeting. But I am not afraid there will not be enough to discuss; every month there have been emails here.
Also, I'm a bit concerned about attendance - the last hackfest meeting had only two people present. :-(
Board meetings are mandatory. The point of scheduling board meetings, is so that we actually have meetings and that we can count on people being there, for example to vote on things. The meetings don't have to be long, if there is nothing big, 15 minute friendly chat is fine too.
(Just in case, I want to make clear that the hackfest meeting is something separate from board meetings.)
Perhaps we could do a trial run of say 5 meetings, and then decide if there seems to be plenty to discuss and attendance remains high through all 5, to continue?
Attendance should be mandatory, and so if attendance is low, that would mean something bad.
