20:17:01 jinalfoflia Hello everyone! :)
20:17:13 dorothea_ hi Jinal :)
20:18:02 dorothea_ I think it's just you and me, so the meeting shouldn't take long :)
20:18:45 dorothea_ would you like to give an update since the last meeting..?
20:19:39 jinalfoflia Sounds great dorothea_
20:21:15 jinalfoflia Since the last meeting we had, something that I personally worked along with you is the blog post on the attendees page for SotM Japan.
20:21:42 jinalfoflia The page is live and there are folks who have added their names, hoping for it to be useful :)
20:22:56 jinalfoflia Other than this, we had some discussions on OSM wiki page update.
20:23:21 jinalfoflia I'm sure of missing out on something :P dorothea_ anything that you want to add? :)
20:24:26 dorothea_ after you ;)
20:24:41 jinalfoflia Here are the links to the attendees page - and the blog post -
20:25:02 jinalfoflia dorothea_, now, all yours ; )
20:25:07 dorothea_ lol :)
20:26:17 jinalfoflia :D
20:27:06 dorothea_ regarding my action point to contact the translators of the blogposts for the past 12 months and ask about being listed on the CWG osmf wiki page - I haven't done it yet :) (cont..)
20:27:40 dorothea_ We had a brief discussion with peda, and if we add people who have translated just 1 blog post, putting them on the CWG page might give the false impression that many people are helping
20:28:06 dorothea_ I will probably contact only those who have translated a few posts
20:28:23 dorothea_ other than that, I created an OSMF stand-up poster for SotM, printed the stickers for the conference and updated the LWG osmf wiki page.
20:28:49 dorothea_ and if I have time, I will make some sticker packs for local communities
20:29:23 dorothea_ that's all from me
20:29:38 jinalfoflia Yeah that makes sense! :) That's so awesome, it'll be great to see them all at the SotM, this year :))
20:29:59 jinalfoflia 👍🏻
20:30:01 dorothea_ :)
20:30:29 jinalfoflia Anything else that we need to discuss?
20:31:35 dorothea_ there are some topics, but maybe we can do it when more people are present :) shall we schedule the next meeting..?
20:32:34 jinalfoflia Okay, should we be discussing this in the meeting happening in September?
20:32:51 jinalfoflia When are you intending to schedule the next meeting?
20:33:42 * planemad (~planemad@***.***.***.***) has joined
20:34:09 dorothea_ it's not my decision to make :) perhaps we can put it on the 3rd Friday (that would be September 15th).. but there is a small possibility that it might clash with the board meeting
20:34:37 dorothea_ hi planemad :)
20:34:45 dorothea_ jinalfoflia, what do you think..?
20:35:08 planemad hi dorothea_ !
20:35:13 dorothea_ :)
20:37:08 dorothea_ planemad, the meeting almost ended but if you want us to discuss something, feel free to say so :)
20:37:09 jinalfoflia Hmmm, Sounds great! dorothea_ just want to be sure if people can make it
20:38:38 jinalfoflia dorothea_, should we do a second Friday?
20:38:56 dorothea_ yes, why not :)
20:39:52 planemad =)
20:40:05 jinalfoflia So it's not a big gap as well as we can avoid clashing with the board meeting :)
20:41:42 dorothea_ yeap :) ok, let's say next meeting on September 11th, and if anyone has other preferances they can say so :)
20:42:05 jinalfoflia Sounds great dorothea_ :)
20:43:19 dorothea_ I think next time is at 19:00 London time?
20:43:37 jinalfoflia Works for me!
20:43:53 dorothea_ ok, let's try that this time :)
20:44:32 jinalfoflia Cool :)
20:45:25 dorothea_ thanks and have a very nice evening :)
20:46:06 jinalfoflia Thank you, but I'm off to bed :D You have a great evening and weekend ahead Dorothea :)
