08:06:16 <jflory7> #topic Introduction
08:06:32 <jflory7> #info Looking at doing a status update / review of current session and then move to open floor
08:06:50 <jflory7> As an FYI, I won't be transcribing too much of the open floor because it's too much to keep up with from past experiences
08:09:11 <jflory7> #info Moving back to a normal schedule for meetings and most of the times we reach a quorum for voting
08:09:20 <jflory7> #info One changes made during this session is moving to a lazy consensus voting model
08:09:28 <jflory7> Lazy consensus is used by the Council
08:09:49 <jflory7> If no one speaks up, you assume that there isn't a problem and you can move forward with the issue / ticket
08:11:34 <jflory7> Helps so you have the chance to speak up in a week, but if you don't, it doesn't block. Also blocks -1 votes without context, so all rejected votes are required to have an explanation
08:12:03 <jflory7> #topic Mentors
08:12:20 <jflory7> #info Currently, mentors are primary concern - there are not enough active mentors to bring in and mentor new Ambassadors
08:12:25 <jflory7> Different regions face different issues
08:12:40 <jflory7> Many current mentors are no longer active
08:12:46 <jflory7> And no new mentors are being nominated
08:12:57 <jflory7> Reaching out to current mentors and following up on activity might be helpful and useful
08:13:09 <jflory7> They may have new jobs, new lives, maybe no longer continue their position
08:13:15 <jflory7> We need to find new mentors as well
08:13:19 <jflory7> Not just about finding new mentors
08:13:25 <jflory7> Amplifying the process and making it better
08:14:39 <jflory7> #info No direct relationship between the mentor and the mentee after they finish their sponsorship. Perhaps continued communication between the two after the sponsorship provides a more engaging and powerful way to bring in new and motivated individuals
08:15:13 <jflory7> #info Q: "I see the info about mentors, but from what I remember, if you want to be an Ambassador, seek out a mentor and figure it out. If you're a mentor, maybe you should seek out Ambassadors to sponsor into the project?"
08:16:30 <jflory7> #info A: Mentors are invite-only, you don't apply, are nominated. Don't want to actively recruit Ambassadors as it is not our business. Want contributors who *want* to be Ambassadors. Recruiting people for the sake of having a big number is counter-productive.
08:26:50 <jflory7> Not focusing on transcription as much now, lots of open floor-esque discussion going on now.
