Actions #3

Updated by Olivier Hallot about 6 years ago

Simon Quigley: Assinged a task but I had to (politely) take over because he was not productive. I will assign an easier task later.
Roger Caw: came in and is now gone, the documentation tasks available was not in his expectations
Leo Moons: Showed up in first 2 meetings but he is more concerned into volunteering for flemish (nl-BE) translations

Actions #4

Getting more volunteers in should be a priority - this is also part of
the community inolvement discussions we had in the team, as this seems
to be a problem of several communities. Writing all on your own doesn't
scale so well, so getting volunteers in and encouraging people,
spreading the word, doing outreach should be a priority; I assume Mike
Saunders can help from the marketing POV.

Onboarding volunteers actually is a task for all TDF team members
Currently restructuring the tickets a bit, so closing this one; I'll follow-up with separate tickets on calls, EasyHacks etc.
