  1. Review/gather what other communities do (frankbrockners, 18:06:14)
    1. https://wiki.opnfv.org/meetings#background_info (iben, 18:06:48)
    2. what is being done with the OpenStack Meetings page #link https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings (iben, 18:07:11)
    3. As another reference point here is the OpenDaylight Meeting Page also in text (not table) format. #link https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/Meetings (iben, 18:07:33)
    4. synchronous communication is extremely expensive (frankbrockners, 18:08:55)

  2. problem statement (frankbrockners, 18:09:27)
    1. key issue: too many meetings that one has to attend and the need for synchronous interaction (frankbrockners, 18:13:18)
    2. consequence is: audio meetings create silos and exclusiveness (frankbrockners, 18:14:20)
    3. audio meetings usually only have a poor record (listening to recordings - if available at all - is time consuming), meeting minutes are sparse (frankbrockners, 18:15:32)
    4. IRC meetings automatically create a good record (frankbrockners, 18:15:57)
    5. IRC is only friendly to people whose working habits are to be in front of a keyboard (frankbrockners, 18:16:39)

  3. solution approaches (frankbrockners, 18:27:50)
    1. try IRC as default for meetings (no audio) (frankbrockners, 18:28:14)
    2. for countries that have difficulty accessing IRC, offer a OPNFV hosted proxy (a la webchat.opnfv.org - which would proxy to freenode) and check whether irccloud would be an alternative for those folks (frankbrockners, 18:29:13)
    3. all of the above are just suggestions (frankbrockners, 18:30:14)
    4. key is fewer meetings (request each meeting owner to clarify _why_ they _need_ a meeting) (frankbrockners, 18:30:27)

Meeting ended at 18:38:41 UTC (full logs).
