We haven't been idle in the last few weeks, a newsletter is almost ready to be sent out, we have had some informal meetings to solve mostly technical problems and improve the communication between tech teams, BoD and other volunteers.
Our next public BoD meeting is on Thursday, June 12th at 21:00 CEST on http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=BoDpublic. Please log in with your BW-username. Like with previous times the idea is that you can read, what is being discussed, but not write yourself, unless asked. We will most likely have an open round in the end, when you can contribute yourself.
In the meantime you can already get an idea of what is on the agenda.
somewhat delayed by the server crash a new version of the code driving the web site has just been released. Most of the changes have been done in the (invisible) backend cleaning up code and hopefully offer the volunteers some better tools.
The dev team plans to cleanup more code with the next release while adding some interesting new features for everyone to enjoy.
The effort wouldn't have been possible without the help of some dedicated people like cumbking, tsjoek and leoalone.
Thanks to everyone testing as well (which unfortunately isn't as well documented as the people developing).
For a full list of changes you can visit Trac.
If you are interested in what is being discussed during a BoD (Board of Directors) meeting, you are welcome to join our next meeting on May 6th at 21:30 CET. Since we need to ensure some efficiency for BoD meetings you can only read in the chat, what is being discussed, but you can't participate in the discussions, unless you are asked to.
The IRC channel for the chat will be published in this Blog post just before the meeting. Please log in to the chat with your BeWelcome username or at least provide your BeWelcome username when joining.
What are we going to talk about? You can already check out the agenda, which will still be worked on till next week.
As previously announced, tonight there will be the first BoD formal meeting. It will be a public one, so you are interested, you are welcome to follow the discussion in real time. Keep in mind, however, that in order to ensure an efficient workflow, you will be able to read the discussion in real time, but not actively participate to it (unless you are asked to).
