Code Contributions to Hyrax Code (Jim H - 60 minutes)
Problem Statement: The numbers of folks actually writing code is dwindling, and we should talk about how to improve that, both among devs, but also among managements who allot developer time.
GOAL: Identify strategies, or narrow focus working group, for improving contributions to Samvera’s code base

How to Support Sustainable Community Development Work (Kirsten Leonard - 60 minutes)
GOAL: Outline the work that needs to get done in the community, and how we best support volunteers to do that work; provide discussion and ideas to lay the groundwork for the working group.
Present Samvera Community Participation Sustainability Working Group Charter: identify potential strategies that will make participation viable and attractive to volunteers and their organizations.
Quick review of our current structures for volunteer leadership that sustains the work of creating and maintaining Samvera-supported software (technical leads, product managers, maintenance working groups, bootcamp trainers, etc.)
What can we, as Partners and as a Community, do to make sure these roles are sustainably and consistently filled and that these contributors are supported, recognized for their work, and can step away knowing someone else will be available to fill the role?
We’re reimbursing Indiana University for a portion of Daniel’s time as the Hyrax Tech Lead. What else could we do differently to attract contributors to this and other roles that require a significant, time-limited investment? Do we need to build on or change our structures, or our incentives? How else can we make these roles attractive and sustainable?
