The IRC log of the meeting will be made available here once we figure out the best way to do that. Also a summary of actionable items will be posted here after the meeting. Uploaded raw log attached.

Decisions and Action Items
  • Creation of Teams
  • Next Meeting is for team Leaders - May 14th 1300UTC
  • Redmine becomes more "framework-like" in that it is very pluggable, but ships with several default plugins that maintain redmine as a great out-of-the box tool.
    • Core -> "Core blessed plugins" -> plugins.
    • More modular Redmine people can pick and choose how their redmine works
  • #337 moved to 1.1
  • 1.0 Release schedule is:
    • May - Regular development, get in as many features as feasible
    • June - Feature freeze and bugmash, after which put out a Release Candidate
    • July => release 1.0
  • Logo design contest sometime before 1.0
  • All agreed Plugin Directory needs to be created. We will explore a couple of options and come back to this.
