236:14 PM I am talking here of Samuel and Derick. Samuel has a role at the Fundation which is mutually exclusive with his role in the core team. reason he had to step from core team to a normal member

256:15 PM
26<mahveotm_> mahveotm Hi Rosie, thanks for the update!

28<r054l13> Rosalie Derick has been cut of by a number of things to that made him step back. The good news is it will give room for new people to jusp in and learn while posibly sharing kknowledge aswwel
296:16 PM
30<mahveotm_> mahveotm OK, wow, this sounds great!
316:16 PM
32<r054l13> Rosalie sorry for the typos. my keyboard is :/
336:16 PM mahveotm_: Yeah!!
346:16 PM
35<mahveotm_> mahveotm But just to be clear, Derrick is still a member of AWMD right, just stepping back to handle some stuffs as you said.
366:17 PM No problem about the typo!
376:17 PM
38<r054l13> Rosalie mahveotm_: Actually he left the project completely but we hope to have him back soon.
396:19 PM The next point is Future of AWMD IRC meetings
406:19 PM For some time now the core team has been trying to evaluate the cost/benefit of the monthly IRC meetings.
416:20 PM
42<mahveotm_> mahveotm I'm really surprise to hear about that. I'd contact him privately after this. It's sure going to be a huge loss!
436:21 PM
44<r054l13> Rosalie mahveotm_: Indeed :(
456:21 PM
46<mahveotm_> mahveotm OK sure, let's discuss that, IRC meetings attendance has been at an all time low!
476:21 PM
48<r054l13> Rosalie exactly
496:21 PM
50<mahveotm_> mahveotm Ow, please go ahead!
516:22 PM
52<r054l13> Rosalie The original idea behind this meetings was to help volunteer devs solve their problems trying to fix tasks
536:23 PM but we realised that having agenda point for a meeting that is suppose to be like a remote hackathon, finally absorbs time and we end up not sharing much tech knowledge but mostly updates
546:25 PM So we are thinking of changing the meeting formats and sharing what ever information should be shared, on the mailing list and not on meetings dedicated to debugging.
556:25 PM mahveotm_: We made this survey.
566:26 PM please feel it and share it with other AWMD members you know. The results of that survey will be very useful for our next moves
576:27 PM
58<mahveotm_> mahveotm Ok, I understand now, we intend to actually phase out meetings from this channel and dedicate it only to bug fixes, the rest should be done on the mailing list right?
596:27 PM
60<r054l13> Rosalie It takes less than 5 minutes to feel it as most questions are MCQs. Thanks
616:27 PM
62<mahveotm_> mahveotm Sure, would share with my team members!
636:27 PM
64<r054l13> Rosalie mahveotm_: exactly
656:28 PM The last point on the agenda is Some opportunity anouncement
666:30 PM Wikimedia DE is looking for a full stack developers. Since we are a community of devs. I thought this offer might interest someone here
