Continuing the discussion from Global Hangout - Planning and Agreements for 2017 - please come!:
We’ve got quite a full agenda for the hangout this month and quite a few new people so introductions could take a bit longer - I suspect we maybe can’t / won’t get through it all in one hour. As I do the agenda, I’m putting key points / questions and links here as an outline so we can perhaps streamline some discussions, cover off some of it beforehand and/or split into separate meetings . . or at least know what we’re getting into!!
###1. Where and when
One hour, every Tuesday of the month, at:
Oslo & Paris: 13:00
North Carolina & Canada: 7:00
If you would like to be added to the calendar invite, please respond below and ping @MyriamBoure.
MUMBLE - as we are likely to have more than 10 people, we will aim to use Mumble for this call. If you plan to attend you need to allocate at least 10-15 minutes before the call starts to getting yourself set-up. Follow @NickWeir’s instructions here - Dev Hangouts - Setting up Mumble
I have set-up a new Slack channel called global-community to run alongside the hangout so that links and messages exchanged within it are saved and available afterwards. Also to easily coordinate anyone who is having trouble joining. I invited everyone that I know is planning to attend. Please add yourself if I missed you. @woakes070048 - have just added you to Slack
###2. What - the Agenda
summarised agenda here. Feel free to add items but probably also best to comment below so we can work out if/how to fit it all in
####Governance - Pledge Terminology for Partners / Service Providers
The terminology of ‘Service Providers’ for white-label OFN instances has been questioned by @woakes070048 and @jveilleux, asking why white-label for-profit organisations / instances wouldn’t be considered ‘Partners’. Do we want to change the language in the Pledge to have something more inclusive for these new kinds of community members?
Personally I’m ok with considering other terms/names for these kinds of entities e.g. ‘Partners’ (commons-based organisations running branded instances) and ‘Service Providers’ (so far generally for-profit orgs running own-branded instances), do you have suggestions? There might also be something around ‘Partners’ being those that make a clear commitment re. contributions to the commons or something? But then we need another term for those who are strongly identifying with Open Food Network and wanting to be the representative and provider in their area - these are ‘something’ - if not Partner then what is better term?
For full discussion so far see here - White-label OFN Service Providers working with OFN Community
It would be great if someone wanted to suggest a solution? We need to get the Pledge finalised and people signing on, so very keen to have this finalised in this meeting.
- Do we need greater clarity on contributions to the Commons?
- Should we require Attribution
- Considering options for greater funding of OFN e.g. investment (@NickWeir do you know if it is likely that anyone would want to talk to this in this meeting?)
OFN CC spending and Co-Budget - we NEED to know what is happening here as Australia no longer has a financial buffer, and the requests keep coming. We’ll give an update and @serenity has a proposed process … which really means you need to use co-budget
Project Management: determining and managing priority projects - as Australia is no longer the ‘command centre’ we need to reconsider some processes e.g.
process for identifying priorities and allocating responsibility etc
making sure everyone who needs to be in the spec discussion is in it
determining / balancing spending with different timing of funding contributions
can anyone confirm if there is any cost benefit for UK paying European invoices rather than Aus? (e.g. Spree Upgrade)
@lin_d_hop - does this roughly cover it? Making this page a wiki so you can make this better outline if you want . .
User Guide to Gitbooks - we’re keen to get on with it, discuss . .
Anyone else want to volunteer to draft the Internal Communications summary? It’s been on my to do list for a couple of weeks now, and may languish there for longer otherwise - Internal Communications Summary
OK, that’s my 2c! Please comment, edit, make suggestions - including proposals for anything that can be resolved or taken off the agenda!!
