I was cycling as fast as I could across London. 19:12 dorothea :) 19:12 harry-wood What did I miss? 19:12 dorothea don't get killed :) 19:13 dorothea we went through the action item updates 19:13 jinalfoflia_ dorothea, regarding the stickers, (just curious) will we be able to manage the delivery charges and printing stickers for all the SotMs? 19:14 dorothea Harry, any updates you would like to share? jinalfoflia_ let's discuss it in a sec 19:14 jinalfoflia_ 👍 19:15 harry-wood I have… no updates 19:15 dorothea regarding updates, we now have an RSS button on the blog :) 19:16 harry-wood yes I merged nebulon's RSS icon https://github.com/harry-wood/osmblog-wp-theme/pull/5 19:16 harry-wood I think it looks a bit too big 19:16 harry-wood would be more stylish as subtle icon half the dimensions 19:17 harry-wood but then I thought… It's an exciting new icon. let's merge it as it is, and then make it smaller later. 19:17 dorothea I like it even as it is (big fan of RSS) :) 19:18 dorothea Harry you also emailed the board about the translations 19:18 harry-wood I did. Did I see in the report that they'd had some follow up board discussion? 19:18 dorothea yes, but it was not discussed yet 19:19 harry-wood well by email it seemed like they'd decided osmfoundation.org (wiki) access levels should be …more cautiously granted. 19:20 dorothea that's my recollection as well 19:21 harry-wood I'd like to leave it with somebody else to follow up on that one, and relay any actions/messages to our French translators 19:22 harry-wood but sounds like the board might discuss it some more 19:22 dorothea yes. Let's wait to see what the board decides 19:24 harry-wood I didn't "Contact Joost about the problem with OSMF wiki mail confirmation". I will do that 19:24 dorothea Harry, we re-ordered the agenda a bit and mentioned the "Printing stickers for this year's SotMs (budget to be allocated)" (in relation to the recent request) 19:25 harry-wood Does "stickers for SOTM" mean stickers about OSMF to be distributed at SOTM? or stickers about SOTM? 19:26 dorothea the first :) 19:26 harry-wood OK yeah. We should get more printed if we need more 19:26 dorothea jinalfoflia_, if we decide on a budget, it will include printing and delivery charges. 19:26 harry-wood I still have a stash here actually. Need to remember to take them to events 19:27 jinalfoflia_ Makes sense, dorothea :) 19:27 harry-wood How many did we get printed last time? 19:27 harry-wood D'you think we need the same number again? or more this time? 19:27 dorothea well, I had printed around 2000 I think, but it was not just for SotM.. the ones that were not distributed at the international one, were sent to regional SotMs 19:28 dorothea probably more.. which I think is ok because we don't spend the budget on anything 19:30 dorothea but not my decision to make :) 19:30 hbogner [~firstname.lastname@example.org] entered the room. 19:30 hbogner hi 19:30 dorothea hi Hrvoje :) 19:31 jinalfoflia_ Hello hbogner! 19:31 hbogner am i late or early? 19:31 hbogner hi dorothea, hi jinalfoflia_ 19:31 harry-wood late! 19:31 dorothea :) 19:31 harry-wood disgraceful! 19:32 dorothea lol :) 19:32 harry-wood hehe (I was late too) 19:32 hbogner oh, sorry then, kind of a chaos, preparing for the conference next week 19:32 harry-wood You're having a conference? 19:32 hbogner harry-wood, yes, https://2018.dorscluc.org/ 19:33 harry-wood Croatian Linux Users’ Conference. Nice 19:33 harry-wood You should take some OSMF stickers! 19:33 dorothea lolll :) 19:33 hbogner organizesr, and the company i work for is a sponsor, so have to do double the work 19:34 hbogner harry-wood, waaaay ahead of you 19:34 harry-wood Already got some stickers? Jolly good 19:34 hbogner dorothea already sent me the stickers 19:34 jinalfoflia_ :D :) 19:34 dorothea will there be flyers too..? 19:35 hbogner dorothea, thx for the graphics for roll-up banners, but i didn't get the time to make them, flyers could be done :D 19:36 dorothea np, you'll have them for next year :) 19:36 dorothea nice 19:37 dorothea getting back to the agenda, we were discussing to allocating a budget for printing stickers for this year's SotMs 19:37 dorothea any thoughts? 19:38 hbogner +1 from me on that, was for that long time ago 19:39 jinalfoflia_ +1 19:39 dorothea Harry? 19:40 harry-wood Could we set the budget to be the same as the amount we spent last time? 19:40 dorothea well.. actually we didn't spend last time, as I didn't claim the expenses :p but yes, it could be for the same amount :) 19:42 harry-wood Yeah. Either that or aim to get the same *number* as last time, and similar quality (they were quite nice glossy ones), and just see what the price works out as (from different suppliers?) 19:43 dorothea I will email the group how much it was 19:43 dorothea sure. Just a note, we have to factor in distribution costs 19:44 harry-wood Have we been sending stickers by post with this first batch? 19:44 dorothea yes, those that were sent to regional SotMs 19:45 harry-wood We should aim to keep that to a minimum by dishing out lots of stickers to all corners of the world when we're together in Milan 19:46 harry-wood but yes seems reasonable to spend some money posting them places too 19:46 dorothea shall we continue over email? 19:47 harry-wood Yeah. Could be good to get an idea of how much has been spent on printing and posting up til now,… just so we have an idea… but I don't suppose it's worth agonising over too extensively 19:48 harry-wood Let's just do more of the same! 19:48 harry-wood did you mean you paid for the printing yourself last time? 19:49 hbogner yes, she did 19:49 jinalfoflia_ left the room (quit: Quit: This computer has gone to sleep). 19:49 harry-wood You could just put in a retrospective expense claim for that. Submit it at the same time as this new batch 19:50 harry-wood Help to keep the admin to a minimum for whoever does the admin… which is probably you :-D 19:51 dorothea lol :) 19:51 dorothea let's continue with the Agenda.. Harry did you add the Blog Mail subscriptions? 19:52 harry-wood Did I add them? What d'you mean? 19:52 jinalfoflia [~email@example.com] entered the room. 19:52 harry-wood There was some talk of installing a plugin for subscribing by email 19:52 dorothea sorry, I meant did you add it as a topic to the agenda 19:52 dorothea (by the way, I have to disappear soon for LWG meeting) 19:52 harry-wood I actually think it's a lot more complicated that just installing a plugin, because it needs to have a system for pumping out lots of emails. But I could be wrong 19:53 harry-wood I could ask TomH/firefishy about this some time. See what they think 19:54 jinalfoflia Hey everyone, I'll be disappearing now (12:30 am here) -- will read the log of the meeting. Have a good day ahead :) 19:54 jinalfoflia left the room (quit: ). 19:54 dorothea bye Jinal 19:55 harry-wood see you! 19:55 hbogner mass emails are always troublesome 19:55 hbogner we should consult with operations first 19:56 harry-wood ok. I'll do that 19:57 dorothea another potentially OWG-related topic: "Add #osm-cwg on https://irc.openstreetmap.org/" 19:57 dorothea could you ask them about that too, or do you prefer me to do it? 19:58 harry-wood oh yeah. I can look into that 19:59 harry-wood It's probably configured in a github repo somewhere 20:00 dorothea that's great, thanks :) 20:00 harry-wood Maybe we need to trim away some entries on that list too. 20:00 harry-wood I wonder how we could detect inactive irc channels. 20:00 harry-wood Probably need to have a bot in each chatroom 20:01 dorothea probably.. osm-es seems to be missing 20:04 harry-wood What else? 20:08 dorothea I don't think we have any other topics :) I was thinking that we could create a page on the wiki with the ideas related to having an OSM booth at a conference 20:09 dorothea but we don't have to discuss it now 20:09 harry-wood Yeah sounds like a good idea 20:10 harry-wood There may even be some wiki content about that already somewhere 20:10 dorothea as content we could wikify and enrich the email I sent to Hrvoje 20:11 dorothea some ideas were from ccc pages on the wiki, but as least the last one was in German :) 20:12 harry-wood yeah do it! "Conference booth" wiki page 20:12 harry-wood These are ideas for a booth about OpenStreetMap at a general tech conference 20:13 harry-wood The other thing is having a booth about OSMF at a SOTM conference, which we could also brainstorm ideas for I ugess 20:13 dorothea yes :) 20:14 harry-wood I've been getting back into posting "featured image" this past week (on twitter/facebook) 20:15 harry-wood I decided to add something to my google calendar to nag me every two days about it :-) 20:15 dorothea lol :) 20:15 harry-wood (my calendar looks a bit cluttered now!) 20:15 dorothea I really liked the tricycle one.. but just notices that it was only sent on Twitter :) 20:16 dorothea *noticed 20:17 harry-wood oh really? hmm 20:17 harry-wood no you should be able to see it here too https://www.facebook.com/OpenStreetMap/photos/a.10151917077279369.1073741825.22007529368/10156621879824369/?type=3&theater 20:18 harry-wood Maybe "the algorithm" hid it from you :-) 20:18 dorothea yes, just thought that I had seen it on image of the week :) 20:19 harry-wood I gotta head off now. My toddler needs a bath 20:19 hbogner i have to go now, sorry for being late and going early 20:19 hbogner bye all 20:19 harry-wood snap! 20:19 harry-wood bye all 20:19 dorothea good night all :) 20:19 hbogner left the room (quit: Quit: Leaving).
