[yast-devel] Brainstorming Sessions

I've discussed this with some of you already. Anyway, for the rest...

The problem definition is this: We often have something we'd like to discuss with others and get a quick response. At least I have these quite often. Mailing-list works only partly as people have too much time for their response and sometimes do not respond at all, so quick and still good solution that could be made in 30 minutes takes two weeks.

There is a simple solution: Brainstorming - that's proven to bring fast and good ideas (please, +1 if you are interested, -1 if not).

How to implement it with distributed team? We have plenty of possibilities: phone conference (people only hear you and you can't share your, e.g., drawings), video conference Orange/Rome (only internal, e.g., Ancor can't join), G+ Hangout (some of you don't like using Google), Internal web-based audio/video system (not tested by me). Other ideas welcomed!

How this could work? I'd book some time in everyone's groupwise (1 hour max per week) including a conference room with video system (if needed). Then everyone could mention their theme on the weekly call or via mailing-list and when will the brainstorming happen. Everyone could decide whether to join (or not).

Would it help with your issues? It would definitely work for me. Would it also work for you? Other ideas? How is this being done in other teams or in other companies?
