Sorry, running a touch behind.
|ted||==== START MEETING ====|
Better get that in with balanced equals...
* SFC Items (ted)
* Student programs (Outreachy, GSoC, etc) (@Tav)
* Developer meeting update (Mc)
* Vectors update (@ryangorley)
* Infrastructure update (@doctormo)
* Current Votes Status (ted)
I put the folks who are normally on RocketChat as \
|Mc||no problem, we still have paper||18:03|
|ted||(no clue why, but I assume wine is involved)|
I'm planning on just using my address. Not sure if anyone objects to that.
But we can make it easier to change.
More over just want to get this done.
|Mc||I was thinking of an institutional address, but no strong feelings one way or another|
(it's not like it'll be used)
|ted||By that do you mean like getting a Post Office box?|
I thought of that, but it seems like a useless cost. (not a lot, but wasteful)
|Mc||rather a university address||18:05|
|ted||Oh, that's interesting. Then in theory they'd find someone.||18:06|
|scislac[m]||I have no idea how that would work. :)||18:07|
|ted||Can we pick a university? I've always wanted to visit Princeton. 🤣||18:07|
|Mc||if you work there, sure :D||18:07|
|ted||I'm guessing you're offering your address there, can we just do that or do we need some approval?||18:08|
|ted||I was more thinking from the University.||18:08|
I think we can \
|pono||Yeah, just setting up an address is a good place to start||18:09|
|ted||Okay, I'm +1 there. Anyone see any issue? I can get the details outside of the meeting.||18:09|
|scislac[m]||No issue here||18:10|
|ted||So I'll work on getting that vote together. Probably this weekend, please watch out for it.||18:11|
|ted||K, so the financial overview is here: https://gitlab.com/-/snippets/2232122|
It is largely the same with a few more donations.
Because of the SFC fundraiser we have all the donations from 2021 in there.
(they were running the update script regularly)
I played with the listing a bit, nothing dramatic but I thought there was a couple interesting stats.
|RdH||...and probably one reduction as I've been reimbursed for the Apple Developer program||18:12|
|ted||In 2021 we got roughly ~7500 donations with the average being ~$12|
The vast majority were <= $10, with about 5500 of them being there.
And there were only 22 that were over $100
Ah, great to hear that is closed @RdH
|RdH||Thanks for approving that :)||18:13|
|ted||So I'm not sure what to do with those stats, but I thought it was interesting.|
If someone wants me to run some other metric I can do that as well.
That's all the SFC stuff I have right now. Any questions/comments/etc?
K, moving on: * Student programs (Outreachy, GSoC, etc) (@Tav)
I think that's pretty quiet right now though.
|RdH||From what I can see, RocketChat does not pick up on your good intentions with \||18:16|
|Mc||not sure what the schedule for gsoc is||18:17|
|ted||Hmm, I thought it did. Perhaps the ( is the issue. ( @Tav )||18:17|
|RdH||This one worked!||18:17|
|pono||It just got announced: https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline||18:17|
|Mc||pono: ah, thanks!||18:17|
|ted||Heh, @Tav is going to get a million pings 😉||18:17|
|Mc||so, org applications in a month||18:17|
|ted||Cool, do we have a project page there and stuff, do we need to start soliciting those?||18:18|
|Mc||we usually have the wiki|
but it would be great to reorganize it a bit
|ted||I haven't looked at it recently, but last time I did there were a few that were quite old.|
So that'd probably be good.
Might be an interesting thing to promote?
Heh, doesn't seem to excite anyone 😉
|Mc||there will be a vectors meeting tomorrow||18:22|
|ted||Mc: Do you think we should ask to add it to their agenda? Or do you want to have the ideas come from devs?||18:22|
|Mc||I don't necessarily want to have the ideas from devs, it's just that projects will need a dev interested to act as mentor|
(as usual, we saw great projects coming as ideas from the gsoc mentees)
|ted||Hmm, so probably we just need seed ideas, we don't really get those as much in practice.||18:24|
|Mc||We'll also need to look at the timeline of outreachy||18:24|
|ted||K, are you and @Tav okay leading that again this year?|
Seems @Tav isn't here, so he can't say no 🤣
|scislac[m]||I can be available for it as well if we don't have 2 people interested.||18:27|
|ted||K, I think we just need someone to propose a plan there.||18:29|
|ted||My only concern is that it should be private, i.e. between the coordinator in the mentor. They shouldn't have to publicly say yes/no if we're offering.||18:30|
for gsoc the project receive 500$ per mentored student
|Tav||Hi all... got busy with family.||18:30|
|Tav||I can help with GSoC again this year.||18:31|
|ted||So I think whoever are the coordinators should propose a plan they're comfortable with as they'd be executing it. Or no plan. That's fine too.|
But we should probably say which way we're going for when people ask.
|Mc||but there is no opposition from the board meeting ?||18:33|
|scislac[m]||As in from this meeting or some other meeting?||18:34|
|Mc||from this meeting||18:34|
|ted||Not from me.|
Not seeing an objections, not sure if that is what you're looking for though 😉
|scislac[m]||Not from me either||18:36|
|Mc||we can move on with the agenda then ^^||18:36|
|ted||Sounds good, you're next anyway.|
* Developer meeting update (Mc)
|Mc||Holidays recently, so things were a bit slow|
should be a release 1.1.2 soon-ish, and a 1.2-beta
devs meetings attract a few folks
|ted||K, saw a couple messages about getting to bug fixes for 1.2, is there a feature freeze planned?||18:37|
but no date set in stone yet
\u0001ACTION git push a feature into a MR 10s ago\u0001
|ted||Haha, okay. So not quite frozen yet.|
I haven't looked at the Vectors agenda, but are those on it?
|Mc||I'll try to come tomorrow to the meeting||18:39|
Anything else dev-y going on?
|Mc||apart from the future releases, no :D||18:40|
|ted||Heh, yeah, those are kinda the big thing.|
* Vectors update ( @ryangorley )
I'll note I'm wearing my 2021 contributor's t-shirt today. I'm not judging what everyone else is wearing, just noting I look better. 😉
Hmm, RC is saying Ryan is online. It must be lying.
|Mc||I need to take a photo for @doctormo||18:43|
|ted||Going down the agenda:|
* Infrastructure update ( @doctormo )
|scislac[m]||Ted: I feel judged since I don't have any Inkscape swag. ;)||18:45|
|ted||Not seeing Martin as online either.|
scislac: You are being judged. You can be one of the five people who use Spreadshirt.
Have to say, I got the shirt off spreadshirt, and the contributor one is way better.
Okay, so last item on the agenda:
* Current Votes Status (ted)
Which there are no outstanding votes for once! Whoo!
But we're gonna have to do the FSA one here soon.
|ted||Okay, I don't have anything on the agenda, anyone else have something for the meeting?||18:47|
|Mc||I did not vote for the last one because I understood chris'email as a retraction from the very point of the vote||18:47|
|ted||Mc: makes sense, it was certainly unclear.||18:48|
|Mc||and I'm late in sending a vote email||18:48|
|ted||I don't know how we'd officially count it in the end, but just vote on the next one and you don't have to worry about getting kicked out 😉||18:49|
(don't kick me!)
Okay, I'll officially call the end of the meeting, you're all welcome to chat here ofcourse.
==== END OF MEETING ====
Happy New Year!
|scislac[m]||Happy New Year! :)||18:51|
|Tav||Happy New Year||18:51|
|pono||Happy New Years!||18:52|
