Recap of January 4, 2018 Meeting

@bethsoderberg is out for a few weeks and @juliekuehl for at least this week, so GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ may stall for a little while.

@josh McIntyre: We worked a little last week on how to set up the Project boards for tracking how lesson plans get updated. Other than that, Julie has more info.

@estes.chris SupportFlow seems to be working now.

@jillbinder couldn’t get some answers from @bethsoderberg before she had to go offline. It sounds from the above message in this meeting that it might be a few weeks before they can be resolved so she will use that extra time before looking at them anyway. If she needs to, she will reach out to someone else or to the channel in general.

Regarding questions on Getting Started and Style Guide LPs from @estes.chris:

It’s possible we’ll use GitHub instead of the status page. There has to be more research on that. The status and proposed LP pages are removed but the info is saved and can be added back.

Skitch seems to not work and isn’t open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL., so it won’t be the annotator of choice for images.

Placekitten will still be the placeholder source of choice and the instructions will be updated based on information from @jillbinder.
