    Talking about money in xsf@, I still haven't expensed things from Summit (taxi) etc., is it too late :x

  43. Guus

    I also have to do expenses 🙂

  44. pep.

    cool, I'll poke peter quickly

  45. Guus

    just send him your expense sheet

  46. pep.

    do we have something like that? a sheet?

  47. Guus

    Nothing official, you can make one up

  48. Guus

    Maybe I have a template somewhere

  49. Guus

    can't find it right now. Just have a nice spreadsheet and send a copy of the invoices, and you'll be fine.

  50. pep.

    Guus, "SCS Bruxelles" rings a bell? That's the closest that look like taxi costs to me

  51. pep.


  52. pep.

    twice for me (going and back)

  53. pep.

    On the 01/30

  54. Guus

    sounds like taxi. I was mostly sick in bed 🙂

  55. pep.

    Hah right sorry, I remember now :p

    Ok so there was no formal voting on the sprint proposal but multiple board members other than us have expressed their agreement, so that's a go?

  61. pep.


  62. pep.

    Not that it really should have been to board I think, but it doesn't hurt. I did want peter's insight though

  63. COM8 has joined

  64. daniel

    pep.: I only skimmed the board chat. But the result was that it comes out of scams budget and we decide, right?

  65. pep.


  66. daniel

    And then if need be we talk about increasing our budget

  67. pep.


  68. daniel

    Yes I find that sensible

  69. pep.

    Also it doesn't mean every single sprint will have 10 people (150EUR), and it doesn't mean they'll spend everything, so on average I think we'll hit more than 4 sprints a year

  70. pep.

    (even if just 5 :p)

  71. pep.

    I'm curious about other expenses ralph mentioned on xsf@ re Summit. I think it might be a good time to open up an expense sheet

  72. pep.

    for SCAM

  73. pep.

    And somewhat plan our budget

  74. daniel

    We haven't had a single sprint requesting funding yet

  75. daniel

    So no reason to get ahead of ourselves

  76. daniel

    I'm afraid that the next months are going to be less sprinty anyway

  77. pep.

    virus and all, probably

  78. MattJ

    I'm holding a sprint at my house

  79. MattJ

    can I expense my food/drinks?

  80. daniel

    MattJ: do you make the three person minimum?

  81. pep.

    Technically not forbidden by the proposal, but there was some kind of consensus around 4 minimum. Maybe we'll add that to the proposal to make it clearer

  82. daniel

    And are you going to blog about it ml

  83. daniel

    And are you going to blog about it?

  84. COM8 has left

  85. MattJ

    Serious question: distributed/remote sprints? :)

  86. pep.

    I'm all up for it, I'm happy to consider that

  87. daniel

    Yeah I don't think those need funding

  88. daniel

    I mean they might do

  89. MattJ


  90. daniel

    But I'm not going to order doordash for all participants

    Might be good to have a request template or something. Just to streamline the requests

  103. debxwoody has joined

  104. debxwoody has left

  105. debxwoody has joined

  106. pep.

    could help indeed

  107. debxwoody has left

  108. pep.

    I'm thinking about a blog post or sth first

  109. pep.

    I am inevitably going to mention the virus though, maybe not by name

  110. pep.

    Or maybe not, dunno. Maybe just saying "you're grown up enough to judge by yourself"

  111. COM8 has joined

  112. COM8 has left

  113. MattJ

    As much as I agree with the "judge for yourself" approach, I think it would be weird to /not/ mention the virus

  114. MattJ

    or it will simply seem like we're promoting IRL meet-ups at a very weird time :)

  115. pep.


  116. daniel

    Yes probably not the best time to publish this now

  117. daniel

    I mean this has been in the making for a while now

  118. pep.

    Ok well, I can draft something and we can either publish it later when the pandemy is over, or never publish it because the world would have burned away

  119. pep.

    Zombieapocalypse and al

  120. pep.

    Zombieapocalypse and all

  121. daniel

    Well we can put the rules up on the wiki

  122. daniel

    Making the information available for those who seek it

  123. daniel

    But we can wait with the promo for a while

  124. pep.
