RE: [cdt-dev] Conference call agenda

Can you send out a meeting invite again? This seems to have fallen off my calendar since we changed the timeslot.

RE: [cdt-dev] Conference call agenda

Thanks, Marc. If you'd like to do that, I have absolutely no objections. I'm pretty bad at setting agendas and recording minutes for meetings.

On the idea of the call itself, I've struggled over the years to figure out what these calls are all about. Part of the problem is that our geographic diversity is so wide, it's not possible for everyone to make the calls, or to find a time that works for everyone. The other part of the problem is that I often found myself to be the only one with anything to say. Chris and Ken and Pawel have helped but I'm not sure these calls can be the formal place to make decisions. So in the end, the mailing list is still the official channel for reaching everyone working on and with the CDT.

The calls are just a great way to hear everyone's voices and make our interactions more personal. So I'd like to keep them informal and have them as an opportunity for people to ask each other questions and to share with others what they are working on. But for anything official, like putting forward proposals or making announcements, those should be done on the mailing list, even if you bring it up on the call.

I'm interested in your opinions. Maybe we can make that a topic on the call tomorrow. We need to talk about scheduling for them anyway.

BTW, the call is on for 10 a.m. Ottawa time (EST), tomorrow. Same number as always.

[cdt-dev] Conference call agenda


My apologies for yet another suggestion, I don't want to be the new guy that thinks that "the way we did things in my old project" is the best and everyone should do the same.
So, don't be shy to disagree.

I found it useful to have the conference call wiki page ready before the actual conference call. This would allow people to add items to the agenda as
the conference call day got closer. It was my way of avoiding to forget something that I wanted to discuss :-) (It would also help confirm the meeting time and date.)

I don't mind being the one creating the conference call page if it can help (although, anyone can do it if they need it earlier than it is posted.)
Maybe a simple format of:

Call Info

where attendees and minutes would of course be filled during/after the call.

Any objections?
