Or should we just make this a “report & update” meeting?

IRC Meeting: 6 Feb 2013

Thanks to everyone who managed to make the IRC meeting on #wordpress-ui yesterday.  We had a very productive discussion and — despite the entertainment provided by way of my terrible iPad typing — took the first steps towards organising the group along more formal lines.

@GrahamArmfield will be looking after TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. Time permitting, he will be monitoring the existing accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

IRC Meetups

Most of the other WordPress groups have weekly meetings via IRC. Do you think this would be viable option for this group too? Does anyone have any difficulties accessing IRC?
