Subject [ISIS] Re: Conference call
Date Fri, 19 Nov 2010 22:41:01 GMT
Hi folks,

open source projects are done by individuals. And individuals like to 
communicate during long & lonely nights in front of the keyboard. And 
meeting the other ISIS developers is difficult since the are spread 
around the globe.

So if the ISIS developer/users/mentors/community decide to run a regular 
Skype meeting to meet each other electronically assuming

+) that the meeting is announced on the dev list

+) that we not exclude any interested party (apart from troll feeding)

+) that no official statement/vote is circumvented

than I don't see any good reason why someone could complain about it 
and/or impose rules how to organize such a "come together".

Speaking as one of the participants

+) I was impressed by Dan's energy to organize the meeting

+) I was delighted that we were a dozen developers on Skype

*) I was glad to answer a few questions about the ASF (despite being 
seriously distracted by my two daughters on my lap)


Cheers,

Siegfried Goeschl
Apache ISIS Mentor
