14:01:30 <zodbot> dcantrell: dcantrell 'David Cantrell' <>
14:01:32 <VipulSiddharth[m> Good morning everyone :)
14:01:33 <t0xic0der[m]1> .hello t0xic0der
14:01:36 <zodbot> t0xic0der[m]1: t0xic0der 'Akashdeep Dhar' <>
14:02:11 <riecatnor[m]> .hello riecatnor
14:02:12 <zodbot> riecatnor[m]: riecatnor 'Marie Nordin' <>
14:02:31 <riecatnor[m]> good morning/afternoon/evening!
14:03:16 <bcotton> isn't it weird that "good {morning,afternoon,evening}" are greetings and "good {day,night}" are... go-away-ings?
14:04:00 <VipulSiddharth[m> I usually have 7 good nights speaking session before I actually hit bed.. so doesn't apply for me XD
14:04:12 <VipulSiddharth[m> s/for/to/
14:04:18 <bcotton> time is an illusion. lunch time doubly so
14:04:32 <bcotton> but you know what's not an illusion?
14:04:33 <bcotton> #topic Today's agenda... (full message at
14:04:50 <bcotton> #topic Strategic Plan posts
14:05:03 <bcotton> mattdm, the floor is yours
14:05:44 <mattdm> Uh, so, I've been remiss :)
14:06:14 <mattdm> We still have some things planned out, but for a bit there my days got a bit... tactical rather than strategic :)
14:06:29 <mattdm> So that's pretty much the update. Still need to work on this, because we still need to do it.
14:06:40 <mattdm> And I still hope we can get together in person because that's the best way.
14:07:05 <mattdm> I will get a few more posts to Discussion in the next... let's say, timeframe.
14:07:11 <NishantMishra[m]> hello good evening everyone
14:07:21 <mattdm> (good evening!)
14:07:30 <mattdm> And anyway that's pretty much all I've got on that :)
14:08:10 <bcotton> #action mattdm to post more posts to Discussion for discussion
14:08:13 <NishantMishra[m]> did i miss a meeting?
14:09:02 <bcotton> Nishant Mishra: you're not missing the Council meeting, which is right now :-)
14:09:20 <NishantMishra[m]> can i join in?
14:09:21 <bcotton> any other questions or comments on the strategic plan posts before we move on?
14:09:34 <VipulSiddharth[m> Nishant Mishra: are you already here :)
14:09:34 <bcotton> Nishant Mishra: of course, all are welcome here
14:09:41 <NishantMishra[m]> hello vipul!
14:10:11 <NishantMishra[m]> so where is this meeting?
14:10:18 <riecatnor[m]> you are in it ;)

14:10:39 <bcotton> #topic Nest and Hatch
14:10:40 <t0xic0der[m]1> The meeting is happening right now in this Matrix/IRC channel
14:10:49 <bcotton> okay, riecatnor, it's all yours
14:10:54 <riecatnor[m]> #link
14:11:08 <NishantMishra[m]> Fedora Hatch 2022 India I want to attend :D
14:11:25 <VipulSiddharth[m> Akashdeep, I and some more contributors from India are already planning a hatch :)
14:11:32 <riecatnor[m]> based on community feedback we are going to hold Nest with Fedora again this year, and also provide the opportunity for Fedorans to see each other at local meetups
14:11:41 <NishantMishra[m]> VipulSiddharth[m: count me in I joined recently as a contributor
14:11:45 <riecatnor[m]> we are calling that "Fedora Hatch"
14:12:27 <NishantMishra[m]> so is hatch in person?
14:12:42 <NishantMishra[m]> and I would like to know location so I can prepare if in person
14:12:52 <t0xic0der[m]1> riecatnor[m]: Nishant Mishra: This blog has all the relevant information on both Nest and Hatch
14:12:54 <VipulSiddharth[m> Nishant Mishra: yes, that's the idea
14:12:54 <VipulSiddharth[m> Do read the blog post that riecatnor shared :D
14:12:58 <riecatnor[m]> Nishant Mishra: we are just beginning with planning, so locations are most likely not set yet
14:13:25 <NishantMishra[m]> alright so let me know I have to plan in advance the travel and all :D
14:13:25 <riecatnor[m]> these things will be communicated when they are established, make sure to keep an eye on the Community Blog
14:13:26 <riecatnor[m]>
14:14:11 <riecatnor[m]> We are taking proposals for Hatches now, so if you are someone you know is excited and motivated to bring Fedorans together this year, please read the post, share it with others, etc
14:15:04 <riecatnor[m]> any thoughts/questions/comments about Nest with Fedora / Fedora Hatch 2022?
14:15:57 <t0xic0der[m]1> riecatnor[m]: An offline event guide would be helpful to get volunteers started with organizing one. We would want to include general safety measures and organization aspects of it too.
14:16:00 <riecatnor[m]> I want to make sure the council is aware of the plans, mostly. also it would be great to spread the word
14:16:11 <NishantMishra[m]> can akashdeep and vipul tell me where you both stay?
14:16:12 <VipulSiddharth[m> riecatnor(and I am guessing mattdm )
14:16:12 <VipulSiddharth[m> would it be possible to request a matrix room for planning committee? like `India hatch volunteers`
14:16:12 <VipulSiddharth[m> or we should just use main channel?
14:16:51 <VipulSiddharth[m> This is of course not just for India but other regional communities too
14:16:56 <riecatnor[m]> t0xic0der[m]1: this is a great suggestion
14:17:47 <riecatnor[m]> > <> riecatnor(and I am guessing mattdm )
14:17:47 <riecatnor[m]> > would it be possible to request a matrix room for planning committee? like `India hatch volunteers`
14:17:47 <riecatnor[m]> > or we should just use main channel?
14:17:47 <riecatnor[m]> I would say it is up to each organizing group how they want to communicate about their own event.. we could potentially make a hatch channel but my thought is to keep it simple and use the flock one thats in place already?
14:18:18 <riecatnor[m]> more places for people to join- whereas the flock chat is established and has many participants
14:18:39 <t0xic0der[m]1> riecatnor[m]: We could yeah but a lot of countries collaborating on the same channel can make things confusing. (Thinking of which, that is kinda a problem we'd want to have - moar hatch events would be nice ;P)
14:19:03 <riecatnor[m]> I am saying each team should have their own, and decide what platform is best for them
14:19:03 <NishantMishra[m]> i think seprate hatch channel for India would be good
14:19:16 <mattdm> You can make a matrix room without any special access. I think that's best for something like this that's temporary
14:19:19 <t0xic0der[m]1> riecatnor[m]: With you on that.
14:19:23 <mattdm> Rather than a team that will exist for years.
14:19:45 <riecatnor[m]> and Hatch announcements and info can go into the Flock chat?
14:19:47 <VipulSiddharth[m> mattdm: perfect
14:20:18 <NishantMishra[m]> the flock pagure seems to not open for me
14:20:33 <riecatnor[m]> pagure is down right now I think :(
14:20:40 * NishantMishra[m] uploaded an image: (34KiB) < >
14:22:34 <riecatnor[m]> I don't have much else for now- please message/email me if you have Hatch ideas, or Nest ideas :)
14:22:54 <riecatnor[m]> or if you know what you want to do, go to the flock pagure and open up a ticket!
14:23:08 <t0xic0der[m]1> riecatnor[m]: Vipul and I would do so shortly. We have some things up and running. Thanks for running the idea! :D
14:23:29 <riecatnor[m]> openSUSE reached out to me about having a Hatch at their in person event this year
14:23:31 <NishantMishra[m]> t0xic0der:  can i also assist?
14:23:37 <riecatnor[m]> so that is another thing to consider, having a Hatch at another conference
14:23:47 <VipulSiddharth[m> t0xic0der[m]1: we have a few things planned.. not necessarily a great fit for this meeting :)
14:23:47 <VipulSiddharth[m> we will keep you posted Marie
14:23:56 <riecatnor[m]> if you plan to attend an event in June/July, we could potentially tack on a Hatch to that
14:23:57 <t0xic0der[m]1> NishantMishra[m]: Nishant Mishra: Of course! We could use all the help we can get
14:24:28 <NishantMishra[m]> alright
14:25:03 <riecatnor[m]> ok now I think that's it :)
14:25:10 <bcotton> anything else for Marie on this topic?
14:25:41 <mattdm> Thank you marie!!!
14:25:51 <riecatnor[m]> 🤗🤗
14:25:51 <bcotton> #topic Objective updates for next meeting
14:25:54 <bcotton> so!
14:26:15 <bcotton> it occurred to several folks independently that we hadn't heard updates from our current Objectives in a while
14:26:55 <bcotton> and, in general, we're really bad about keeping up on this once we accept an Objective proposal
14:27:25 <riecatnor[m]> I think our next meet is a video call?
14:27:31 <bcotton> that is incorrect
14:27:34 <riecatnor[m]> oops
14:27:50 <bcotton> it woudl have been, but we moved meetings to wednesdays, so they don't conflict right now :-)
14:28:22 <riecatnor[m]> gotcha. are we keeping them at the diff times moving forward?
14:28:41 <bcotton> so i propose that we devote some time in the next meeting to get updates from objective leads on the status of their objectives
14:28:57 <bcotton> riecatnor: no, just the video meetings that we've already scheduled
14:29:10 <riecatnor[m]> cool
14:29:12 <riecatnor[m]> speaking of objective stuff
14:29:14 <riecatnor[m]> #link
14:29:23 <riecatnor[m]> we are having the first ambassador call tomorrow!
14:29:31 <riecatnor[m]> you're invited :D
14:29:42 <NishantMishra[m]> niceee!
14:29:48 <bcotton> I didn't see Outreach Revamp objective leads check in, but t0xic0der are you okay with giving us an update in two weeks?
14:29:59 <NishantMishra[m]> thats 8:30 PM IST ?
14:30:01 <NishantMishra[m]> right?
14:30:03 <t0xic0der[m]1> bcotton: Sure thing.
14:30:25 <riecatnor[m]> bcotton: I will let them know, and yes we can give an update
14:30:37 <bcotton> #action t0xic0der to prepare update on Websites & Apps Objective
14:30:44 <VipulSiddharth[m> NishantMishra[m]: yes
14:30:45 <VipulSiddharth[m> but also, time information is mentioned in the blog ;)
14:30:48 <t0xic0der[m]1> riecatnor[m]: Thanks for this. :)
14:31:19 <bcotton> #action riecatnor to let Sumantro and Mariana know they're #actioned to give an update on the Outreach Revamp Objective
