# January 21, 2021 meeting
-- Updates
- - Sacha:
- - Added transcript for 08 and edited subtitles for 21; only 03-questions and the opening/closing remarks remaining for day 1
+- Updates:
+ - Sacha: one more talk left to transcribe for day 1, hooray!
+ Everything else has been edited. Next step for day 1 is to edit
+ the subtitles into transcripts and make them available. Also want
+ to check if ableplayer passes LibreJS, since that can give us
+ clickable transcripts; will include text transcript anyway for
+ non-JS.
+ - zaeph: Emacs Research Group wants to meet daily
+ - bandali: A little tired because of work; but good progress is
+ being made (yay!). Some progress done on the podcast.
+ - corwin: mental health improving; looking forward to getting back
+ to the swing of things :)
+- Next EmacsConf: Calendar?
+ - We could stick to the same period as 2020's edition (i.e.,
+ mid-November to mid-December)
+ - CFP?
+ - start earlier: accomidated anticipated higher
+ - First entire week of July might be a good time: it'd give us 4
+ months before the actual conference
+ - Office hours
+ - Could be used for the outreach part of the CFP
+ - Could also keep people excited about EmacsConf
+ - On the format
+ - A regular timeslot where people can join
+ - We ask them whether we could use a recording of the session to
+ build some hype for the EmacsConf
+ - We can also have a private moment with them to address some of
+ the possible problems with their talk/topic
+ - Short-ish and regular works best, probably
+ - Let's work on this during February, and let's aim for a first
+ session in March
+ - if there are not presentations we can record and share we
+ could use clips from recent orginizer meetings; we could close
+ meetings with statements intended for this use.
+- On having multiple tracks for the next EmacsConf, either
+ simultaneous or single-threaded
+ - Three tracks based on levels of mastery, e.g.:
+ - Beginners
+ - Pro-users
+ - Package developers
+ - Last year, we had de-facto tracks, or recurring topics like music,
+ academic research, SVG-graphics, games, typography/themes,
+ free-software philosophy, etc.
+ - We could use this info for the **outreach program**: 'We'd love to
+ have people come talk to us about music'
+- Overhauling the graphics for the conferenc
+ - Posters?
+ - Scenes in OBS
+ - Custom dashboard.el ?
+- Figuring out the roles for the next EmacsConf
+ - Fleshing out roles for everyone in advance (so that we're not
+ figuring it out one week prior) and along with this any private
+ comms to faciliate (e.g. iff voice-over and cuts are different
+ roles).
+- Diversity discussions
+ - Taking inspiration from the GNU Kind Communication Guidelines
+- On changing the time for the weekly meeting
+ - Corwin is happy to keep the same time because it'll motivate him
+ to wake up early on Saturdays
+ - We could have a monthly session which takes place on a weekday to
+ try to get more people on board (David O'Toole, David Bremner,
+ Karl Voit, etc.)
+
+- Ongoing projects for February:
+ - FSF Fiscal sponsorship (Leo)
+ - Office hours roadmap (Leo)
