I call false dichotomy on this. I don't buy the "without meetings, we can't coordinate anything" notion. > I will leave the one for Monday on the board for now. Lets have one > meeting with the goal being to never need another one. Ok. Let me know how it goes. :) As I said, I can't attend. > IDEA: We could have a "status" etherpad that everyone could keep > updated each week with current tasks, important blueprints, concerns > etc. What would that gain us compared to a status e-mail? The benefits of using e-mail instead of Etherpad: * They're easier to look up after the fact (mailing list arcvhies are already set up). * It enables dialogue about the contents. * Having to click the send button motivates you to actually finish it. Compared to IRC meetings: * No need for everyone to be in the same place at the same time. * No need for everyone to sit through a meeting where only a fraction of the topics are relevant to them. * Mailing list archives makes it simple to look up past discussions. * Much looser time limits. If I need to test a hypothesis before I make a statement, I can do that on my own time. That's very hard to do during a synchronous meeting. -- Soren Hansen | http://linux2go.dk/ Ubuntu Developer | http://www.ubuntu.com/ OpenStack Developer | http://www.openstack.org/ _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~openstack Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~openstack More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
