Purpose of the meeting

<div>
  • To forge solutions with other community contributors.
  • To discuss content, community, best practices, current issues, and strategy.<br>

First half of meeting:

  • Introduce new members
  • Outstanding discussion items that need resolution (Forum issues, Policies/Manual of Style)
  • What are you working on? Do you need people to come in and help?
  • Ratings from Thumbs up/down

Second half of meeting: Rotation of topics

  1. Moderators and adopters: Learn from one another. What are you doing? Obstacles and getting the help to move beyond them. Collaborating.
  2. Training wanted: Add to the agenda early so experts and interested parties can be specifically invited
  3. Projects needing volunteers:
  4. Improve the Wiki: Resolve current issues and pending decisions
  5. Open: add your own agenda items



Historical Perspective

The Contributor's meeting was spurred by discussions from the Contributor's Corner Forum, including:

  • Define the roles of moderators and adopters and the impact upon other contributors
  • Discuss content isssues, such as the manual of style, creating informative links, and more.
  • Share best practices, ideas, and suggestions
  • Move from talk to decision and implementation

The Technical Meeting previously handled many of these issues. It has recently evolved into technical issues that may not interest all contributors.
