This evening, Kevin Fenzi and I finished the integration of the supybot plugin MeetBot into our beloved zodbot (for those that don't know, zodbot is a very useful bot on the freenode IRC network, which provides a number of services for Fedora contributors).
This plugin was developed by our friends over at Debian, who are using it to record their meetings as well. We would like all Fedora meetings to be recorded using this mechanism, such that there's one format for all of the logs. Complete documentation can be found at http://wiki.debian.org/MeetBot, and a summary of important commands is below. Some limitations right now are that it does not post to the wiki, it only logs to flat files on the server hosting zodbot. These files are available at http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org - the format (as of this evening) for the layout of these files is <channel>/<date>/<time-based filename>.. This plugin will work in any channel in which zodbot is present. If your team would like zodbot in your channel (it should be in most already), ping ricky, jds2001 (me), or nirik in #fedora-admin and we'll get him right over there! Some important commands: #startmeeting <topic> - this starts a meeting about whatever topic you provide. The person running this command is automatically given chair powers. #chair - provide a space separated list of chairs for the meeting. These all have equal powers. You may not need more than one. #topic - this sets the sub-topic for the meeting - i.e. what you're talking about that moment. This is used to organize the minutes. Only a chair can use this command. #agreed - this command can be used by chairs in order to denote something that was agreed upon during the meeting #action - this records an action item from the meeting. If a nick is present, it is assigned to that person in the minutes (note - it only knows about nicks which have spoken to that point. For instance, if I weren't at the meeting and you just assigned an action item to me, it wouldn't come out that way in the minutes. The workaround for this would be to use #nick to make the nick known). #endmeeting - ends the meeting and prints URL's to the logs and minutes of the meeting. As always, feel free to let me know if you have questions or problems using zodbot!
