+* April 10, 2021 meeting
+- Next actions (from last session):
+ - bandali:
+ - Check how much server space we have with FH (200 GB?)
+ - Request more RAM for the server (4 GB only right now?)
+ - Get access to FH’s server to zaeph and sacha (optional, sachac: probably not needed now)
+ - Figure out how to change the domain name with the FH BBB instance
+ - Check if the server power have available on FH now is enough for our bidding
+ - We could also use the beefy servers to which bandali has access to process
+ - Redirect emacsbbb.fosshost.org to bbb.
+ - zaeph:
+ - Update [[https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/Usergroups][EmacsWiki : Usergroups]] with new dates
+ - Download all the recording sessions for EmacsConf & ERG
+ - Work on the crowdfunding based on the recommendations provided by the team

- TODO #A: Download all the recording sessions for EmacsConf & ERG
- All:
- Find more potential guests for the podcast
+ - Adam?
- FSF people? Zoe? Greg? rwp?
- mplsCorwin:
- News from Nate Sales (vela)? (Maybe in two weeks, [2021-03-27 Sat] or [2021-04-03 Sat])
- Late April is probably likely

-- Tentative agenda
+- Check-in
+ - bandali
+ - Busy week; wrapping up packaging tasks
+ - Feeling better, generally.
+ - Bummed by the situation with the FSF.
+ - sachac
+ - *thumbs up*
+ - zaeph
+ - Enjoyed some overdue holiday time.
+ - tarsius
+ - For his work, there are two meetings per week
+ - On meetings
+ - ‘I find one meeting per week is enough’
+ - mplsCorwin
+ - Out for the week
+
+- FSF checkpoint (esp. considering what we discussed last week)
+ - We’re still on hold for retrieving the old recordings from the instance
+ - We might want to wait a couple of weeks for this to be operational
+
+- Actions from last week
+ - organizer-notebook
+ - sachac and zaeph have decided to let the Emacs-SF organise themselves with regards to publishing
+ - Nate
+ - Probably late this month, or early next month
+
+- EmacsSF debrief
+ - Plenty of interesting talks
+ - Mike & Jeff took over for processing the recordings
+
+- Podcast
+ - bandali pitched the podcast to tarsius
+ - No updates with regards to the episodes themselves
+ - Update on the intro music: it’s been found!
+
+- Package-maintainer usergroups/workshops
+ - sachac: There seems to be some desire for more advanced Elisp talk
+ - zaeph: Intuitively, there seems to be a *lot* of interest for this
+
+- On the benefits of in-person meetings
+ - tarsius is really excited about in-person meetings
+ - He especially liked that he was travelling for those meetups
+ - Right now, we’re benefiting from a lot of in-person meetings having switched to virtual due to the crisis
+ - We’re using them as experimental grounds
+ - Should virtual meetings in the future be like the geographically based meetups, or be more specific?
+ - tarsius thinks there’s value to both kind of meetups; he enjoys the social aspect, the unexpected topics, but also sometimes the in-depth stuff
+
+- Crowdfunding for zaeph
+ - sachac
+ - Adding a reward tier on GH Sponsor for coaching
+ - ‘It tends to be good to focus your deliverables on the things that are mostly in your control, at least for the first try :)’
+ - tarsius
+ - ‘Regardless of leading with MELPA/core mediation, it’s important to have a few people who help with that process’
+ - We need to tackle the negativity which comes with core devs
+ - It might help to have me who’d neither be the package maintainer nor the user
+ - ‘Adding stuff to Emacs is all good, but not everything has to be added into Emacs’
+ - ‘A lot of things that would be valuable is removing things from Emacs’
+ - ‘Things have been improving though’ wrt the core of Emacs and the policy of merging stuff
+ - ‘I don’t think we should have 4-5 email clients if we install Emacs; it’d be nice if we just isntalled the one that we want to use’
+ - Definitely a nudge for a wizard installer for Emacs where you’d choose which one to use?
+ - bandali
+ - If zaeph needs help with the Emacs/GNU side of things, i.e. with the CLA, bandali would be happy to help
+
+- Chat with tarsius
+ - Merging magit & transient into Emacs
+ - tarsius is not against merging magit into emacs, but isn’t particularly excited about it either
+ - With the non-GNU ELPA, it might no longer be necessary
+ - However, merging transient seems to be a much better idea
+ - tarsius is quite busy right now, though, so this will have to wait
+ - ‘It doesn’t seem like that much work, though’
+ - Some painpoints, like the manual: what is it going to become?
+ - Getting tarsius on board with some EmacsVerse/EmacsConf stuff
+ - For now, tarsius just wants to show up until he can justify the time investment
+ - Funding for EmacsConf and/or ERG
+ - tarsius: fundraiser as a group
+ - zaeph: tarsius has been doing his fundraiser by himself, but we should do a fundraiser as a group to garner more attention and also channel some ‘Assemble!’ moment
