MISC NOTES of 12/12/2015 meeting by GNOMEY (post notating)
Github, new site claim system -> move forward outdated claim system
Skype -> try out alternatives to Skype like discord.
Forums -> move over to the new site forum
Skype summaries: summaries are the main bottleneck on Skype meetings; the backlog of summaries to be written has only been increasing, which makes the prospect of more frequent (ie. weekly) meetings seem less desirable, and the often useful discussions we have in the Skype meetings often never really make it to the forums. This will no doubt be an ongoing problem, and there’s a lot of room for improvement, but we have decided on one particular step forward:
The Skype meeting recordings will all be uploaded to a new thread, with the date and subject of the meeting next to a link of each recording. Anyone can download the recordings and either simply listen to them, or help summarize them. A few people already mentioned that they would be willing to pitch in during the meeting.
Of course, many of the meetings are very long, and many don’t have the time to spend over three hours listening to a recording and jotting down notes. However, there’s no need for one person to summarize the whole meeting. Contributors can just summarize as much as they feel like, and then, along with their part of the summary, post between which timestamps they summarized.
-don’t start by trying to write planning documents, which take forever to write; write out bullet points
-when forum discussions reach a gridlock, as often happens, (often people simply stop replying to the topic and it isn’t clear whether a consensus has been reached and what the consensus is), they should be added to the agenda for the next Skype meeting so that they can be resolved there. The forum is good for posting and, to a degree, discussing ideas, but not for reaching a consensus.
