Last PTG the infra helproom seemed to work out for projects that knew about it.
The biggest problem seemed to be that other projects either just weren't aware
that there is/was an Infra helproom or didn't know when an appropriate time to
show up would be. We are going to try a couple things this time around to try
and address those issues.
First of all the Infra team is hosting a helproom at the Dublin PTG. Now you
should all know :) The idea is that if projects or individuals have questions
for the infra team or problems that we can help you with there is time set
aside specifically for this. I'm not sure what room we will be in, you will
have to look at the map, but we have the entirety of Monday and Tuesday set
aside for this.
To address the second issue of not knowing when a good time would be I have put
together a sign up sheet at https://ethercalc.openstack.org/cvro305izog2 that
projects or individuals can use to claim specific times that we can dedicate to
them. Currently there are 12x 1hour long slots over the course of the two days.
If we need more slots we can probably add an extra hour to each day at the end
of the day. If there are conflicts I'm sure we will be able to share two
different projects in the help room during one slot (but if you schedule one of
these let us know so we are prepared for it).
The ethercalc mentions this too but the schedule isn't supposed to be set in
stone, we can be flexible. I just wanted to make sure there was enough
structure this time around to make it easier for people to find the infra team
and get the help they need.
So now you get to go and sign up and we'll see you at the PTG.
