Call notes

Community calls - Background

The community calls have been run biweekly, with topics from us or generated by the community. Our original plan was to have one call per month focus on the Standard for Public Code and one on the Foundation, with different audiences and topics. That distinction has blurred over time, so we’ve just had biweekly calls.

Where do we go now?

During the call different options were discussed and weighed against each other. In the end, we decided to stick with the original plan. With our new management of the invites through Odoo, we decided to add an extra tag and assign it to all that are signed up now. That way it is easy to unsubscribe people from one while no one is missing out because of our more explicit division of topics. Jan will organize the Standard call, Elena organizes the Foundation call. The calls will be on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month respectively.

What else does the community feel is missing?

We discussed and brainstormed around many different tools like forums, mailing lists, chats, project boards and talked about their advantages and disadvantages. In the end we decided to setup a mailing list and investigate a self hosted Discourse instance.
