Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-9530) board agenda IM/IPC

Sam Ruby created INFRA-9530:

             Summary: board agenda IM/IPC
                 Key: INFRA-9530
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9530
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Whimsy
            Reporter: Sam Ruby
            Assignee: Sam Ruby
            Priority: Minor

Comment from IRC in last week's board meeting:

> Y;know what we really need: whimsy-irc topic integration. So the IRC window auto-updates
to the topic that we're currently talking about for everyone.

The board agenda tool already updates in near-real time for things like changes committed
to the agenda and for secretary minutes captured during the meeting.  It is quite possible
to make that fully real-time (think HipChat or Facebook Messenger).  In fact, I've already
roughed in a chat page.  This works locally, but has yet to be deployed.  Given that you've
already logged in, there is no authentication needed.

Thinking ahead, any event initiated by any person using the application could trigger whatever
we like.  A few ideas for brainstorming purposes:

* Provide a means for (somebody? anybody?) to signal what the current topic is.  Clicking
on it in the chat would take you to that page.

* Provide a means of entering/exiting a "cruise control" mode where your page would advance
with the topics.

* Provide "toaster" style notification when you are not in the chatroom and a message is entered.
 This could be generalized to notify you whenever a page contents have changed or minutes
have been captured.  Perhaps there could be an option to only show you if the notification
mentions you by name (example: new action item or explicit mention in chatroom).

* Augment/simplify roll-call.  Provide a means to indicate that you are on the call, or have
to drop off.

* Online voting.  Example: chair opens/closes a vote on a resolution.  While voting is open,
those eligable to vote can press Yes, No, or Abstain buttons.

Are any of these ideas worth exploring?  Anything I missed?
