Done, great to have you here!
As I can’t assist to your online meetings, is it possible to have a minute meeting (really short summary) ?
Oh hai o/
I’d also be interested in meeting all y’all. Already met @Bubu last FOSDEM. :)
@hans How do we proceed now?
First step is deciding on a time where all/most core-contributors have time I guess. As we are now in mid-may we’d be aiming for August earliest probably.
Next question though is how long this meeting should be. And rather on a weekend or week days? My first intuitive guess would be something like 3 days, Friday to Sunday.
If we have sorted this out we can create a doodle (or comparable alternative) poll to decide on a actual date.
seems like the next step is for there is be a “organizing committee”,
the people who will organize the event, submit funding requests, etc.
I’d guess the location isn’t unimportant either. To put two extremes: if it’s “next door”, I’d happily attend at any “full 3-day weekend”. But if it’s on the other side of the globe, apart from travel cost I’d rather try to match that with a longer (vacation) stay, making it harder to fit “just any weekend”.
But not belonging to the core team, I better keep my ball low – so please consider the above just “thinking out loud”
@Poussinou they are funny: “no registration required” – but you need to specify an email address, and a name (at least to create a poll; other participants seem not to need that).
Fine with me.
Email address => sensitive data, check RGPD rules lol
I think one key factor is whether @CiaranG will agree to come, and where he is willing to travel to. Since he’s the founder of F-Droid and runs the core infrastructure. He’s in the UK.
How many devs and how much blood do you need to summon an elder god like @ciaran ?
Anyway, the place of meeting has to be a bus-less one, right?
I wasn’t complaining. And yes, that’s how I understood it. And as I wrote: “Fine with me”
I think someone just needs to try to get an answer from @CiaranG on this. I don’t think he must be there for it to be a successful meeting.
Do you consider that this meeting could be of interest to translators too?
Yes! It would be great to have translators at a contributor meeting.
Are there already any thoughts about when/where it will take place?
nothing concrete. I think that depends on who is interested in coming, and whether there is funding for the meeting.
