v3 v4 1 We had a short BOF meeting between a few Parrot people Monday evening at YAPC::NA. We discussed the idea of changing the #parrotsketch meeting format to try to include more necessary information (but at the same time, a strong concern was voiced that those meetings tend to be too long). I want to put some of those ideas here into the open so we can all get a good look at them, and maybe start changing some things as early as next week if we like these ideas enough. 1 = Parrotsketch Weekly Meeting Protocol = 2 3 Parrot developers conduct a weekly online meeting on #parrotsketch.

Everybody should prepost reports (or links to reports) well before the meeting at 18:30UTC, so we don't waste time at the meeting going through the list of reports. A thirty minute window should be long enough to ensure that most attendees have enough time to get up-to-date before the meeting starts. Everything will be in the [http://irclog.perlgeek.de/parrotsketch/ IRC log] so people can review them later at their leisure. The ideal format for a report is a blog post or some other format designed to convey content rather than log realtime conversations, but pre-posting in #parrotsketch is also acceptable. … … 8 10 c. things that they are blocking on 9 11 10 3.
