The results of a recent community survey found that 72.46% of
respondents believed having a regular weekly meeting for the openSUSE
Community is a good idea. To have a regular meeting outside the other
technical meetings that exist within the project,, it would be good to
have a structure and set of protocols for the meetings. Furthermore, it
would make sense to have a couple people willing to take ownership of
leading the meetings. I know I can not make a meeting this Saturday
since I'm at a wedding the whole weekend.
The idea of a regular community meetings came about to:
Improve openSUSE projects’ communications
Improve the social environment and awareness of projects within the
Understand how projects and participants interact and are structured
Below is the proposed outline for the meeting.
Date: Every Saturday from 17:00 to 19:00 UTC (per the survey)
Moderator: (A group or team of two to three people willing to rotate
ownership, takes notes and sends email)
Leader: (Person willing to lead a topic for the week)
Supporters: (People willing to support the topic being discussed)
Topic: (Default Topic is completely a social meeting)
Planned topics/proposal: (Should be submitted in Meeting
Notes one week before)
Impromptu topics: (If time allows and nothing is planned)
Topics can involve a tech talk, project proposals, sprint, wiki
gardening, desktop or package development, marketing, etc. This is
basically a meeting for the community to be decided.
Copy of meeting notes needs to be sent to opensuse-project(a)opensuse.org
after the end of the meeting.
