- 7 Summary
- 8 Minutes
- We had our tech meeting last Sunday.
- We decided on using Matrix and updated our instance of the client.
- We created a main discussion group to go with the conference group and put them into their own community. We need to update the landing page of our instance to list the existing groups and tell people about it.
- Looked at our Loomio instance. The free version is limited to 10 people and larger numbers of people are likely too expensive. The source code is available, but it probably won't work on one of our hosting orders. jokeefe has reached out the the Netherlands Pirates to see how they have used it and what other tools they are using.
12/16 Vigil to End Violence Against Sex Workers Protest
- Flyering Sunday at the BAB/BU. What time?
- Flyer/poster status
- What are we recording at the flyering event?
H.R.6729 - Empowering Financial Institutions to Fight Human Trafficking Act of 2018
Topics for next one:
- US S.1241 - Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017 - Approved our opposition to S.1241. Need statement (Joe)
On hold until next week - https://piratenpad.de/p/MassPiratesComputerDonations
Other To Dos
Worcester farm group is interested in having some FOSS tutorials. Perhaps:
- how to do basic labels in GIMP,
- work through a few sample spreadsheets related to seed cost and
- similarly applicable real-world situations, depending on the needs of the group
Basically how to do graph design & product management with open source tools. Malt will put together a one paragraph description of what we need and we can mail it out to ask pirates to help.
