Hi Paco!

Just a few minor hints inlined below.

For strategical reasons, we’ll hold these meetings one day before the Hack&ACK, which takes place last Thursday every month. This way we can agree which PRs/issues are likely to be solved during the Hack&ACK, especially if the couple maintainer/commiter attend the meeting. However, this is not limited to the Hack&ACK and can be done at any time, we’ll discuss the way we want to work on this and if a meeting per month is enough/too much.
CG: I assume you meant every last *Tuesday* of the month, not *Thursday*

I think this can be used mostly to agree on which parts of the roadmap we want to work on, and who’s steering the activities. I didn’t add the bug tracker here but it’s maybe convenient, though it can bee too large.

> Therefore, I suggest to have our first meeting next Monday. I don’t know about the hour, since we have contributors from all over the world, but I guess around 17:00 can fit most time zones.
CG: So the first meeting is scheduled at 5 pm (CET) on November 6.

> I expect your feedback and let’s also discuss about which mean can we meet. We’re using placecam for the Hack&ACK which works more or less good, but if we can have something better and all people is able to configure it we should move to it.
CG: I have no strong opinion about the software. If PlaceCam works then
just use that. An alternative could be WebEx.


> Since this would be our first meeting, I’d say we’ll need to reserve around 1h for it, but I’ll try to keep the next ones no longer than 30min.
> Keep RIOTing! Cheers!
> P.S: @Martine, can you set up the next Hack&ACK meeting? Thanks!
