Hi Paco! 

Just a few minor hints inlined below.

> Well, I just moved a step forward into this and ask all of you to attend the first meeting. 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* 
Yes, I made a mistake, Hack&ACK is on Tuesday.

>   - Monthly meetings organisation -> Keeps tracking of the activities regarding our roadmap. 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. 
> Given that today is a holiday in Germany, and most of the attendants/organisers of Hack&ACK are from there, there’s none today. We have agreed that we will move it to the next Tuesday. 
> 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. 
For now I would say so (forgot to specify the time zone, thanks), unless most of the interested people cannot do it for that date/hour. My intention was actually to get a consensus on that matter.

> 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!
