Summits, Conferences and Meetups workgroup - 2020-01-06
GuusThat's to bad. Given the latest communication from FOSDEM orgs, can anyone see how we'd have a more spacy spot than last year?
GuusIf not: are we even going to bother with the bean bags and all?
MattJWhich hallway, out of curiosity?
GuusQuoting FOSDEM email:
> on K-2, group D is to the left and group E to the right
MattJI guess perhaps they wanted to group Mattermost (I don't think they have had a stand before), but there isn't room
MattJWe're grouped under "World Wide Web" :)
MattJI don't think it's a disaster if things are different this year, we may well get more visibility
pep.I don't have anything to add to the agenda for tomorrow's meeting. I still need to send stuff to the list about sponsoring sprints, so we won't have time to talk about it beforehand. I'll try to send it this week so we can address it next meeting
pep.The agenda is empty, so if there's nothing tomorrow morning I suggest we reconduct
GuusHmm, unsure if applicable, but for your consideration as agenda items:
- GSoC ?
- Create visuals / handouts to be distributed (at fosdem)
pep.What about GSoC specifically?
pep.I sent an email to members@ to ask for an org admin this year
Guusunsure if we need to talk about GSoC - but deadline is rapidly approaching.
pep.Dunno if Flow would like to stand again
GuusI ping'ed Flow last month, he seemed interesting, but didn't commit.
pep.Or maybe vanitasvitae is interested? he created the wiki page :p
GuusKev has been the org admin before. It might be worth pinging him too.
pep.It's also very much possible to have more than one (so that they don't have to be 100% all the time)
GuusI think it's even required to have more than one.
pep.Did we have more than Flow last year? You as a backup?
Guusor at least very much suggested (by Google) that you do.
GuusI've acted as a token admin last year, but Flow really did all of the work
pep.Ok well let's talk about all that tomorrow. I'll ping people I think might be interested
pep.Can you add agenda items when you have time?
GuusGSoC really isn't SCAM, is it?
pep.We also have pending items that we can talk about. "Accessories for conferences". MattJ mentioned last time a leaflet stand, I guess that goes with FOSDEM things
