Rob wants to know if it's quiet for a reason or if this is just the normal activity cycle
General sense that we're hibernating or being distracted
Big breakout at C4L on leaving fedora etc.
Discussion about whether this community is interested in growth and if so what kind of growth:
Steering has been discussing as have partners and other groups
The grapevine is still working away and people out there are grumbling and wondering
seems important to be able to respond to conversations that touch on the Samvera community (cf recent Library with the Lead Pipe article)
Would be useful to have a response quickly, even if it is a simple acknowledgement
Is steering or marketing responsible for these responses? who is responsible?
We're seeing a lack of coordination around marketing and talking points. Who is going out to conferences? Are we covering the conferences and spaces we should be covering? Hybox project raised our presence, but now there may seem to be a lack of presence because that project is over.
Action: bring this to steering - who is responsible and how can we take action quickly and coordinate across the community to raise our visibility
Whitepaper is in good shape as a "where are we now?"
But this probably doesn't directly enough address the issues of criticism from within and without the community
We need to stop crafting this doc and get it out into the world - give it a date
Action: We all need to read the paper and offer a final round of comments - set a date for steering review with a quick turnaround for publish
Roadmap Council reviews between now and Thursday Feb 28
Goes to editor for review by Tuesday March 5
Goes to Steering Tuesday March 5 with requirement to offer comments back by Monday March 11
