Hi Ian,

This mailing list is for scheduling of meetings of volunteers working on FSF-related projects + the FSF tech team. In the meeting we can help
each other and learn about the projects.

Thanks for adding me to the list. The meetings sound like a great idea.

The volunteers on this list are invited but have no obligation to show
up or stay for the whole meeting.

Initially it is one weekly meeting at Friday 2pm eastern time
(UTC−04:00). I expect it will take 20 minutes to 1 hour.

That will be 4am for me, so I won't be able to attend live.

We are open to scheduling additional meetings meeting or changing the
time based on people's availability.

A meeting that starts any time between 12am-8.30am or between 6.30pm-12am any day (UTC-4) should work for me. The windows will shift to the left by one hour when we enter daylight saving in early October and another hour in early November when you stop saving daylight.

Alternatively if there are discussions on any IRC channel during the meetings I can also send scheduled messages, which is how I handle the licensing meetings which also take place while I'm asleep.

Things I hope we will accomplish in
this meeting:

- FSF tech team helps volunteers. If there is an issue that needs time outside of a quick discussion, we will try to schedule it or simply
  work on it during the meeting or after the meeting.

- Volunteers help each other.

- Attendees learn about how the volunteer-lead projects are going.

I can certainly send scheduled messages to report how things are going.

The initial list of invited volunteers and things are working on:

Yuchen Pei: h-node
Daniel Katz: Was FSF intern summer 2020, he is interested in working on
 for adding git as an option Savannah web page repos.
Bob Proulx: Savannah, mailing lists, debbugs
Amin Bandali: Savannah,, various other things.
Ruben Rodriguez: Trisquel

We are happy for you to suggest more people to invite, just let us know

Structure of the meeting: this is up for discussion, my plan is for us to quickly create an agenda at the start of the meeting and prioritize at the top of the list people who have less available time and shorter /
higher priority issues.
