Purpose of the meeting

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


Kudos goes to ...

Jane Colmenares who, as a Community member, gave much time, encouragement, and ideas in the beginnings of the talk digest concept.


1) A talk digest of the Wiki Contributors Corner forum is being tested. The purpose is first and foremost to bring your discussions and ideas to Community-based decisions and implementation.

  • A summary of the posts to discussion threads will include a request for you to comment further during the next [week, month?], when a poll or vote will be taken.
  • Decisions will be recorded and implemented on the Wiki likely in the Community Center.
  • During the month of January, a thread will be devoted to your suggestions for refining this process.
  • If this method is continued, volunteers will be needed to "shepherd" specific threads or topics through the digest - vote - implement process.

2) We have a secretary who will be taking minutes on the Discussion page for this meeting. Let's help her get the important points.

Those points will also be posted to the appropriate threads in the Wiki Contributors Corner forum, so we won't have to go several places to get the conversations.

  • Questions?
  • Comments?

Discussion Items
