See Architecture Council/Members and Mentors, and the Councils Page

(Lars) Chat room for AC meeting

  • Suggests to have a chat room, e.g. via Mattermost, so that AC members can chat during the call
  • Dani: can be distracting while being on the call
  • Wayne: let's experiment with this in our next call
  • Dani: sounds good, but there should be a transcript of the chat that can be attached to the minutes of the meeting
  • Agreement to try it out via Mattermost, or other tool if Mattermost doesn't fit
  • AI Lars: organize the chat room for the next meeting, with Mattermost as first preference

(Denis) Incubation mailing list

  • Would like to auto-subscribe a bunch of people, like mentors and incubator committers
  • Wayne explained the background, i.e. provide better mentoring and support for incubating projects
  • Dani: would be good to have a FAQ
  • Wayne: good idea, but every mentor must participate in this
  • Agreement that Denis can auto-subscribe the relevant folks

(Wayne) LocationTech

  • The LocationTech working group does lots of cool stuff, but is somewhat disconnected from the Eclipse community
  • It's a challenge to find mentors for those projects
  • Would like to nominate two people from LocationTech working group to the AC
  • Asked whether a few AC members would vote +1
  • AC is OK with this, but the nomination must contain the achievements of the candidates
  • AI Wayne: nominate the candidates

(Wayne) Great fixes/contributors for Neon

  • We had great bugs and great fixes contests
  • Would like to do a great contributors round this time
  • Has a tool that lists contributors with most contributions; currently Eric Williams at the top
  • AC to comment on that list
  • AC is OK to do this
  • AI Wayne: provide the list

(Wayne) EclipseCon F2F

  • Room is reserved for the entire Thursday
  • Morning after keynote is reserved for Planning Council
  • Will try Google Hangouts, so that council members not visiting EclipseCon can also participate
  • AI Wayne: organize the Google Hangouts
