Regular progress calls occur to keep everyone on track.

Monthly Progress Calls

Calls cover all their topics in an hour, with time for additional discussion afterward.

Upcoming Calls:

  • Sunday, October 25th, 2015, 6 PM UTC
  • Sunday, November 22nd, 2015, 6 PM UTC

1. Access

Mumble server: fbx.freedomboxfoundation.org Port: 64738

  • We are going to be trying out Mumble for voice communications to allow residents outside of the United States to participate without running up a phone bill.
  • You do not need to create a username before hand (just make one up).
  • No passwords are required.
  • There is a client package in debian (mumble) and a GPL client for Andriod phones (plumble).
  • I would recommend you use headphones (or half-duplex mode) to avoid any echo.

Since it's difficult for multiple people to edit a wiki at one time, notes will be taken at pad.riseup.net, link to be posted in chat before meeting.
