Re: [guadec-list] proposal: regular phone meetings

In fact I'm also thinking of a core group of 5-7 organisers plus
(hopefully) another 5-7 involved partially in a specific subproject
(video coverage, social events, website, etc).

But event the 5-7 core people are mostly busy, difficult to meet on a
same day/hour regularly, etc. This is why I suggest to work more on a
2-3 people teams basis. Not tinking that each team has different 2-3
people, same Dave or Ludovic cab be in 2 or 3 projects themselves but at
least they know and everybody know much better which is their primary
commitment and what is expected from them.

Otherwise my feeling is that we spend more time waiting for everybody to
meet and getting broad agreements than actually working and doing stuff.

For instance, last week we discussed about registration fees, visas,
sponsorship to special cases... Several people took part in the
discussion, have we got to a conclusion? Instead of discussing again
everybody which is the conclusion I would request to the Registration
team to come up with a final proposal to be approved by the coordination.

If we put names on this we see that, as for today, the Registration team
 consists of Fernando and me. And coordination consists, as for today,
of Dave and me. After the discussion held in the mailing list a
conference call between Dave, Fernando and me should be enough to make a
decision. Then, as always, improvements can be suggested on decisions
made, but at least we have something more than a bunch of emails or an
IRC log.
