Team communication and meetings

The Update Working Group (UWG) has an open chatroom, #update-working-group on, and we’ve had three scheduled meetings in our chatroom: 

  • 6 Sept 2014
  • 27 Sept 2014
  • 18 Oct 2014

There’s also been ongoing discussion in the chatroom on various topic related to our group’s goals. We focussed on those items that could be done quickly with what we have to work with now, with the main focus being on Documentation. Goal being to have specific things done before 2.5 EOL or sooner.

We are working together with a group from the Marketing team for the extra visuals and marketing posts.
