RE: About the current a11y meeting and format

Hi Folks,

As a point of interest, I am about to introduce some eleven undergraduate
software engineering students (Western New England College, Springfield, MA,
USA) into the GNOME A11y community and on Thursday a subset will be on the
IRC half an hour before the regular meeting. If the A11y list is the place
for development questions, particularly about Caribou, we will have
questions in the coming weeks. I have found the meetings useful for both
learning the community and its goals as well as providing a good example of
IRC communications and how groups are organized. 

As for the specific questions:
1. I don't have a lot of input into timetable, but the 15:00 UTC time is
working well for me and will work for some students. 

2. I would hate to see the meetings cut to bi-weekly. (As it stands, I'm
guessing that I'll make the meetings at 15:00 UTC and students will make the
ones on the opposite week :-) ) However, I also don't think that student
involvement by itself is enough to keep the meetings to weekly so I defer to
the rest of the community. 

3. I do not yet have a clear enough idea as to what are acceptable agenda
items to comment on the need for operating using an agenda or not. Perhaps
some insight into the parameters for what is acceptable/useful agenda items
would help clarify. 

Just my thoughts and I'm still a newbie at this.

Subject: About the current a11y meeting and format

During the last meeting [1], we were discussing about the current
status of the weekly meetings, and we conclude that we need the input
of more people. So:

 1. Timetable? We concluded that it wouldn't require to debate that,
    as we have already discussed and tried several different
    timetables. But just to confirm that.

 2. We still need weekly meeting? In some way this is somewhat a
    overkill, and it is clear that due the timetable, there are some
    meetings really empty. But, in the same way, if we made that
    bi-weekly, due the timetable some people will just attend one
    meeting per month.

 3. Current format: perhaps the more problematic point on the
    meeting. Some people felt that the current format is too detailed,
    and that we should orient the meeting to an agenda-item-update.

So, lets debate.

Opinions? Debate?

I will use this mail to share my personal opinions.

1. Ok for me
2. I think that worths the weekly meeting.

3. I personally pointed on the previous meeting that the reason this
   wouldn't work is that nobody is editing the shared weekly meeting
   and proposing items. So if we find a meeting with just 2 items, we
   have two options. Or a 10 minutes agenda-item-update a11y meeting,
   or just use the time to talk about it, as, after all, we were there
   to talk about it, and enter into detail if required.

   YES, probably a agenda-item-update oriented a11y meeting will be
   better. Problem: there aren't enough items on the agenda for that.
