Working Group Minutes/EWG 2017-02-28
- Paul Normal
- Peter Barth
- Ilya Zverev
- Tobias Knerr
- Ilya: sort through project difficulties (3 levels: low/medium/hard)
- Ilya: move Lulu-Ann's and Komzpa's projects to the separate section below
- Ilya: send a list of projects without mentors to Peter
- Peter: send mail seeking new ideas and mentors to a mailing list
An outstanding issue: project maintainers. E.g. all changes to the OSM website go through Tom Hughes, and there are some ideas that won't get merged. Students might not know that there are more people they would need to talk to besides their mentors. Do we list maintainers in the project ideas? Ask them to approve these ideas? Or add a comment about an unmergable project? Is merging a requirement for passing the project?
We should probably ask all mentors to check with project maintainers for their approval.
Exactly two weeks from this one: 14th of March, 20:00 UTC.
