Summits, Conferences and Meetups workgroup - 2020-01-22

  1. Guus

    I'm preparing for the Dinner signup form. Could you please review ?

  2. Guus

    (if you need access, I can give that to you)

  3. MattJ

  4. MattJ

    (it says "2016"?)

  5. Guus

    I noticed that too. I think that was the original form that this was copied from. I can't seem to find it. I just added your gmail address as a collaborator, MattJ

  6. Guus

    (I found it as soon as I typed "I can't find it". Fixed now)

  7. daniel

    Guus, what kind of review are you looking for? i don’t speak french so i wouldn’t be able to review that

  8. daniel

    but feel free to add me as well if you think i can be of help

  9. Guus

    daniel: just a once over would do. I translated the Dutch into English myself, for example

  10. daniel

    that == that the translation is correct

  11. Guus

    I didn't bother with French translations this time

  12. Guus

    Yeah, pretty much. And any other glaring omissions that you can spot.

  13. daniel

    oh; i always thought that french was the original as provided by the restaurant

  14. Guus

    it's dutchly-french 🙂

  15. Guus

    There's some overlap, but not for all. I removed what we had, as I don't have the time to look up the rest

  16. Guus

    (kind of spread myself thin, before fosdem)

  17. Guus

    happy for others to augment the form, but English should be a good enough bare minimum, I figured.

  18. MattJ


  19. MattJ

    I changed January "30st" to "30th"

  20. MattJ

    Assuming 30 was the correct date

  21. daniel

    yes 30th is correct

  22. Guus

    Ah, thanks. Last year, it was 31, which is why it had 'st' instead of 'th' I think

  23. Guus

    it's on thursday, which should be 30 January.

  24. Guus

    Should we add a reply-before-date ?

  25. Guus

    the restaurant needs the final tally a couple of days in advance

  26. Guus

    I think that providing it to them by Monday evening / Tuesday morning would suffice.

  27. Guus

    I need to be off for about 2 hours

  28. Guus


  29. ralphm

    It appears that they changed the stand locations, and we're back in the corner, with Matrix, Mattermost, wolfSSL, and Linphone.

  30. ralphm

    Guus: Ralph's Delight, really?

  31. ralphm

    Good to see the steak is back



  33. ralphm, to all of the above?


    The steak, mainly.


    Ralph's Delight must be a scheme to lower the number of people ordering it. It sounds niche.

  36. ralphm

    This is the second time a dish has been named after me.

  37. ralphm

    But I mostly referring to the message about the stand location, which I why I nudged you to join.


    Back in the corner is a yay


    Although not hauling with all the stuff this year was appealing.


    (on a call, so can't really reply wihtout raising some eyebrows)

  41. Guus

    To be honest - I don't think that there's much of a point to haul all stuff, even if we're back in that corner, if it's as crowded as the last few years.

  42. Guus

    with so many stands, the lounge setup doesn't work.

  43. intosi

    That's a reasonable point

  44. ralphm

    On the other hand, 4 out of 5 of those stands are related

  45. Guus

    The last few years, it was a mess. If we can find a way to pull it off, that'd be great - but as things were, I don't think it added value.

  46. ralphm

    By the way, I know it is very close to the summit, but should we try to print swag. Like t-shirts?

  47. intosi

    Good idea. I could do with a new xmpp shirt.

  48. Guus

    I'd like that - but I really don't have the time to organize things.

  49. Guus

    if you could take point on that - by all means.

  50. ralphm

    Suggestions for the print are welcome. I can do some research and order today.

  51. intosi

    It feels to me the lounge as is has run its course, at least with the limited space we have had the last few years.

  52. ralphm

    intosi, we can choose to not call it lounge next year

  53. ralphm

    but this year it still is, on the schedule, etc.

  54. intosi


  55. Guus

    I don't think anyone expects there to be an actual lounge. And if they do, they'll be more disappointed by what we can offer in that space. I'd prefer to not set up the beanbags, tables and carpets this year.

  56. Guus

    I'll order some more stickers. The XMPP logo and the "hello my JID is" designs is what I have, and can order.

  57. Guus

    oh, I actually still have plenty of those "hello my JID is" stickers.
