Proposal: Regular Meeting of Redmine Contributors

Added by Holger Just over 7 years ago

Hi all,

Recently, there have been discussions on IRC about the long term direction for Redmine. Topics include:

  • nurturing the growing community
  • project governance
  • future direction of Redmine development

These discussions led into the idea of having a of regular meeting of Redmine maintainers, contributors, plugin authors, and users. We try to turn this into a platform for discussing the general direction of Redmine, prioritizing, and voting on features and coming up with great ideas for Redmine.

I'm currently a bit unsure about the exact list of topic that should be covered as well as the process such a meeting should follow, but I am sure, we can work this out in the next few days.

Redmine has a great community of developers, contributors and users and it's growing daily. As such it would be very sad if some capable and willing developers would hesitate on contributing their time and skills because of a perceived lack of governance. We should come together as a community to make Redmine the best project management tool on earth :)

I propose to have a meeting on a monthly basis on irc://irc.freenode.net#redmine. To get the thing started, I suggest to have the first meeting on April, 23 (Friday in two weeks) at:

  • 10:00 San Francisco
  • 13:00 New York
  • 18:00 London (GMT)
  • 19:00 Paris, Berlin
  • 03:00 (on April, 24) Sydney

If you would be interested in attending, please post a comment below. Also post if you have any topic suggestions.

In light of the current proposed time - which is 01:00 AM my time - I won't be joining.

I'd like to offer http://uservoice.com to collect/vote features from user like http://rails.uservoice.com/.

Hope this help.

While uservoice, getsatisfaction, and many other services do offer useful feedback workflows, we really ought to stick to this site for any collection of feedback data or responses, IMHO. The reasons (as I see it) are two-fold:
  1. This serves to centralize the data
  2. This may bring up concepts that might be useful to implement in Redmine.

I realize Redmine isn't, strictly speaking, a customer feedback tool, but to some extend it needs to be to allow for proper customer interaction throughout a project. Already, I'm thinking a vote ability on either issues, the forums or both would be a nice plugin or core feature. :)

In fact, the current proposed date should be on Sa 00:00 - just what you asked for previously. I hope you can make it.

Go ahead, it's free for all.

We are going to have some moderation taking place, so let's see how this goes.
The visibility of the channel will in not be restricted in any way. Common sense applies as always :)

In the wake of the creation of teams, I'd like to propose to create a dev forum, see the dedicated topic for discussion.

Can somebody post meeting log on the wiki? I missed the meeting.

RE: Proposal: Regular Meeting of Redmine Contributors - Added by Felix Schäfer over 7 years ago

AFAIK khalsa will post the logs later tonight, there also are some minutes on DevMeeting0, which might get extended in the next few hours days.

RE: Proposal: Regular Meeting of Redmine Contributors - Added by Muntek Singh over 7 years ago

Raw log uploaded

I will have more readable html logs available soon.

For those watching this thread:

There is now a Development forum created so that we can coordinate ourselves and our teams better. I have also moved this thread to that forum.
