Logistics

Toggled-Off: Nobody

Agenda

  • Point1 - Announcement: Loomio scatter voting on dapp issues. Add your own issuse, anyone using it should feedback. Add to github/list.
  • Point2: Reviewers whitelist
  • Point3: Monthly Video Call

Point1 - Announcement

Everybody can vote on loomio on how to prioritize issues for DApp bugfixing

Tension

We need to be able to prioritise feat requests for Vojtech

Clarifying Questions

Michael questions for best way with Loomio; if someones addressing an issue. Ongoing or completed should be moved off agenda. Should be waterfall for Vojtech, can we give him that based on the vote and then have him signal ongoing tags in progress etc! Outcome is - We will also use ZenHub to make it easier on Vojtech.

Point2a

Adopting stricter ruleset for reviewers

Tension

Non active reviewers are confusing newcomers to the DApp. We need a process to remove reviewers that show lack of participation.

Proposal

See loomio (https://www.loomio.org/d/BQmIrUFs/conditions-for-whitelisting-reviewers); this is about addition or removal of reviewers process

Point2a

Curating the reviewers whitelist

Tension

Half life on reviewers activities. Reviewer whitelist is on the server and requires specalised access.

Proposal

Proposed 6 months; if not active, clean out. Must put milestone reviewer in roles sheet, feedback given, then see who/what needs doing

Reaction

Bowen - yay Kay - yay, is this just giveth reviewers or whole system? We should think about dealing with it at a larger scale. Perhaps role sheet limits it to giveth? Michael - yay Dani - yay, hears Kay, but would like manual for a bit. Griff - yay, hates the idea of putting it on the roles - high bandwitdth. Would like to keep people on the Dapp incase people want to come back. Concept makes sense right now; Dani as benevolent dictator rather than loads of rules. Kris - Good thing to have process/person in place. Unsure about practice but in favour of not automating it - checker people. Reviewers job should be described well so mostly about the form rather than content. Reviewer would ideally be randomised! Loie - brings up questions about whos doing admin when scaled.... Sounds like were good on manual system.

Result

Approved

Point3

Open community learning.

Proposal

Get guest, interview them/have them present/group - use for podcast. Propose topics, dont have to be expert, something we want. Will co-ordinate monthly speaker.

Reactions

Kay - awesome - please go ahead, maybe make a second slot in the week for alternating meeting topics Kris - nice iniative, lots of meetings. Lets just start, pre meet with a pretotype. Well organised one offs, quality over quantity Bowen - likes but meeting fatigue as well Josh - amen all Griff - push it and make it happen. Can we add a creative spin though, like everyone asks a question, needs to be interactive Loie - obvious go! Glad someones up to it! Dani - excited

Amend/Clarify

Good with more loosey goosey format. I'll do a sheet with Kris and we'll get it rolling
