Re: OpenChain Reference Tooling Work Group - Third Wednesday Meeting - Jan 18, 2023 14:00 to 15:00, UTC
A dynamic response! And elected chairs sound good – I see Shane’s already kicked that off. My apologies, but I don’t want to put myself forward as a chair in this case – at time of writing, Analog Devices is working almost entirely with proprietary tooling. Augmenting this this open source tooling is part of my responsibility but it hasn’t happened yet (anyone got any hours in the day that they’re not using, please feel free to send them over to me instead…); I wouldn’t feel right chairing a group where I don’t have day-to-day experience of at least some of the open source tools under discussion.

Yesterday me and some people arrived on time at 15:00 CET, and 5 minutes later, most of us dropped, as we had no agenda whatsoever or meeting plan.
And this is becoming recurrent.
And maybe again calendars shifted and somehow we got the wrong time.
To avoid this whole process day, i want to propose some changes:
1. Have an chair and a co-chair officially appointed preferably in big different timezones.
This reduces the chance of we've been without moderation.
2. Have a pre-agenda for the meeting at least 2 days before, use the OpenChain or Open-Source-Compliance github Wiki to write the agenda. Must be collaborative. Anyone can add topics.
Is encouraged to even extend the agenda topic to come to the meeting more informed, like a threaded pre-discussion
IF no agenda is formally set, the meeting will be formally adjourned on that week, but the channel will be open to anyone who wants to join and discuss if times allow.
This is specifically for people that needs to arrange their time, so they know that formal meetings will not happen.
3. IF we have a need to discuss something technical or general | hanging out", we can set the meeting as a Fringe meeting, but we need to have a central topic to us as a starting point. This differs from point 3 as there's no directioned talk, we freely jump on the topic.
But again, the above rule should be maintained, the Fringe meeting needs to be announced.
@Fendt, Oliver If you are still around the group and OSSELOT is not taking all your time nowadays, maybe a proposal to unify Open-Source-Complicance content under OpenChain github as we already are under the "brand" ? ( i know, it will be some license hunting for owners )
@Shane Coughlan Can you have some insights on that. ?
@Stephen Kilbane you could be the main chair. How about that ?
Best regards and have a nice weekend
