On the Day
Format and Timings
Any contribution that can be made is welcome, whether it's a minor edit to a wiki page or a bugfix. However, it may be profitable to run a number of discussion groups in the morning around areas of interest. These discussion groups can then set up work to be accomplished in the afternoon.
- 10:00 - 11:00 Interest groups meet (google hangout?), make decisions and assign tasks
- What problem are we solving?
- How will we work?
- Who will do what?
- 11:00 - 13:00 Morning Contributions
- 14:00 - 16:00 Afternoon Contributions
- 16:00 - 16:30 Interest groups wrap-up and reporting.
If contributors have particular projects they want to work on, then there's no need to join an Interest Group.
