irc://irc.debian.org/debian-meeting is an IRC channel meant for IRC-based meetings and training sessions. You can schedule a meeting or organize training sessions for any (Debian-related) topic. This page is used to coordinate the usage of the #debian-meeting channel and schedule sessions, in order to avoid conflicts.
How to schedule a session
It's very simple: you only have to book the channel for your session, providing relevant informations on the table below.
How to schedule a (series of) session(s)
Are you interested in a specific (Debian-related) topic?
Do you want to have periodic meeting of your Debian team, in order to stay focused and advance steadily toward your team goals?
Would you like to present your Debian pet-project to users and developers?
Do you think that it's time to have a deeper look into the latest development tool, packaging technique or internationalization method?
Just organize an IRC session!
To do that you only have to:
- (for training sessions) contact a guru of that topic, asking her/him to talk about it, for ~ 1 hour on IRC
- (for team meetings) pick a date and an agenda within the team
book #debian-meeting channel for a specific day and time (please, choose an hour which fit most timezones) registering the event on the table below
ask for support during the session to channel operators (MadameZou, dondelelcaro, azeem)
send invitational mail and announcement (ask for guidance and help in writing and publish them on email@example.com); you can also send a micronews yourself: instructions in https://micronews.debian.org/pages/contribute.html
- join #debian-meeting!
MeetBot is in the channel so you can ask the bot to log the meeting (please state if the meeting is going to be logged when you announce it or prior to start the meeting).
