    Suggesting a set of steps that we can make here:

    1. create audio recording

    2. possibly have them in written form by making use of ‘speach to
      text’ techn.

    3. someone creates proper minutes from 1(+2); minutes give a broad
      summary of statements, and clear AI’s/conclusions/decisions.

    4. these should be available in the week after a meeting and to be
      approved in the next meeting.

    5. Minutes will then be available in Nextcloud, possibly split
      according to visibility needs

    6. Florian and Thorsten to come up with improved minutes template
