    Rationale: Provide an opportunity for the community to ask questions to the board and about TDF

  2. Status Report, Discuss: Improving boards minuting (Florian Effenberger, Thorsten Behrens, 5 mins)
    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

May be board should talk about private topic before, and let a member-private time happen…


Hi Regis,

The member-private part was started recently, to make that possible indeed. So I expect that it will happen more in future. Of course all depends on the topics: for some it can be possible to discuss it in the private part right away. Looking at sensible possibilities to do more with the members is the goal.
