Meeting Notes

Each week we have a contributor who has been with us for a while draft notes supported by one of the working groups. This is then worked on further by the wider group from Friday evening and used to plan follow-ups, report back to linked teams, give feedback, and plan actions by the Monday 11:00 UTC meeting.

A big thanks to @webcommsat and @lmurillom for doing last week’s notes.

How can I help?

You can volunteer to help with note-taking for one of the future meetings. Please note that the initial draft is needed by the end of Friday each week.
