    Is the techreview muc of any use?

  2. arc

    Are we having a meeting today?

  3. MattJ

    I'm up for it

  4. ralphm waves

  5. Zash

    It's happening?

  6. arc

    Looks like it

  7. dwd

    I so need to figure out what's borked with my server. 😕

  8. ralphm bangs gavel

  9. ralphm

    0. Welcome

  10. ralphm

    Hi all! What do you bring?

  11. MattJ

    I bring myself, that's currently it

  12. dwd

    Yeah, same.

  13. ralphm

    ok, maybe-dwd

  14. dwd

    Well, me and a sense of shame that I've not done anything useful.

  15. arc


  16. dwd

    ralphm welcome to send me a message to my real jid to check I am in fact myself.

  20. ralphm

    Who's up. And also, we seem to have missed a few?

  21. arc

    Yeah I was half expecting to be the only one again

  22. ralphm

    Ok, so I guess that's pretty-likely-dwd then.

  23. ralphm

    2. Fiscal Policy

  24. ralphm

    Where are we with this? Last I remember was that we're awaiting a PR?

  25. arc

    Who is staying on top of this?

  26. ralphm


  27. ralphm

    I think you and Sam would collaborate.

  28. ralphm

    Did I misunderstand?

  29. arc

    Oh no sorry I remember now I've been neck deep in college placement test studying so I haven't been back up for air

  30. ralphm

    Life happens.

  31. ralphm

    So I guess we wait on you having a bit more air.

  32. ralphm

    3. CoC

  33. ralphm

    dwd: despite your earlier expressed shame, is the summer the best time to do a last call on this?

  34. dwd

    I haven't had the time I should have for this, so no movement. I'm away this weekend, but I'll endeavour to catch up next week in time for the next meeting.

  35. dwd

    Erm. Well, if we don't Last Call now, then when do we aim to do it?

  36. dwd

    s/now/next week/

  37. ralphm

    I don't know, just thinking aloud. We can also look at how much feedback we get during LC and possibly extend.

  38. MattJ

    That sounds sensible

  39. MattJ

    I'd rather not delay just in case we won't get enough feedback

  40. dwd

    Yes, that works for me.

  41. MattJ

    If we feel it needs more attention than it receives, we can always extend

    4. AOB

  45. ralphm


  46. arc

    Not for me this week

  47. ralphm

    I guess that's a wrap then.

  48. dwd

    None from me. Apologies for missing a few meetings, unfortunately this falls at the very end of my working week, so I'm often trying to finish work off.

  49. ralphm

    5. Date of Next

  50. ralphm


  51. ralphm

    dwd: no worries.

  52. ralphm

    6. Close

  53. ralphm

    Thanks all!

  54. ralphm bangs gavel

  55. MattJ

    Thanks :)

  56. emus

    ralphm, arc: How may one help with the fiscal topic?

  57. arc

    emus: Sam is the one to talk to

  58. arc

    I just offered to help with some language

  59. emus


  60. me9

    What is this AOB thing?

  61. moparisthebest

    me9, Any Other Business ?

  62. me9

    moparisthebest: Oh. Ok. Thanks.

  63. Sam

    arc: are you still here? Been trying to get in touch about that for the last week or two

  64. Sam

    This is the second or third meeting where I haven't been able to make progress, maybe we can just vote on the current wording and tweak it later as necessary?

  65. Zash

    Fix it in Experimental? Do it!

  66. Sam

    TBF, I'm not sure if anyone will even use this service, so maybe we don't care *shrug*

  67. arc

    Sam: let us set aside a day for maybe the weekend that we can put an hour or two into it

  68. arc

    Again at the moment I am mostly focused on the review for my college placement test. I really really don't want to spend a whole semester taking a math class that I really don't need

  69. Sam

    Sounds good; feel free to also just leave comments async if you have any. I don't want to take up too much of your time, I just want to get the language reviewed and voted on ASAP since this is dragging on so long.\

  70. emus

    Sam, arc: please continue on the topic

  71. arc

    Sam: gotcha
