Subject Re: Propose weekly "Technical Exchange" video meeting for OpenWhisk
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2017 16:07:09 GMT
I find calls easy to review AND to prepare for (in only a couple minutes, thanks Matt, for
setting up consistent call settings!), and I also find there is consensus that discussion
can happen but decisions will go to the list (with any pertinent discussion details). We can
do better to announce this more explicitly on the call (I didn’t yesterday, not sure about
last call), but regardless I believe we have been good about following this approach (reserve
decisions for PR/issue discussion and email list)

I find the calls immensely helpful to surface a subset of topics that are easily, but more
tediously, available already in some other form on dev list, commit comments, and PR discussions.

The calls seem very valuable for the reasons Michael cited; however, doing
a "play-by-play" seems to be a bit resource intensive and overkill...  the
video recording has 100% fidelity and all topics of significance are taken
to the dev list.

Kind regards,

...Do people not on the call feel like they can follow the

As someone who's mostly lurking so far I feel I'm losing some
information by not attending those calls - especially because it looks
like they are great exchanges ;-)

Something that might be worth trying is sending several messages to
this list during the call, one per "important" topic, with a subject
like marker like [call] and a brief summary of what was discussed,
action items etc.

Something like (just a fictional example of course :-/ )

[call] Rewriting the core in Visual Basic

We discussed this during the call (9:30 to 9:45 PST) and people fell
like we shouldn't do it right now.
is related as well as


Having the approximate times in there helps review the discussions in
the video recording.

I *think* this might be more useful than a set of notes (or
complementary maybe), it brings awareness of the calls here and it's
probably quick to write during the call.

That's just a suggestion, of course whoever does the work gets to decide.
