Dear everyone, Since some in-person meetups are now moved to online spaces, including ones based on videoconferencing, I've been thinking if it would be possible (or maybe it is already being considered) to host a Jitsi Meet or other comparable solution on the WMF infrastructure, just like we do with Etherpad, to off-load the other instances currently under heavy load and gain some independence?
I'm asking about Jitsi Meet in particular because it's the only tool I know that: 1) Doesn't require any registration process or any personal information from attendees, besides their IP address and browser fingerprint; 2) Doesn't require installation of any third-party software except an up-to-date web browser; 3) Can be hosted by a trusted organization. I think it might be appropriate for WMF to host an instance, since currently the other avaliable Jitsi Meet instances might be under an exceptionally high load. For instance, I see FramaSoft closing their instance with a message explaining they can't handle the load imposed by universities: https://framatalk.org/accueil/ I'm unsure what is the appropriate channel to submit such proposal, hence I'm asking here for some direction. P.S. I know Jitsi Meet is not optimal for large number of participants, but it may be one of the available solutions for small groups.
