Meeting Tips

Creating Meeting Minutes with MeetBot

The Acumos project uses MeetBot to create and manage meeting minutes on IRC.

When hosting a meeting, please join #acumos-meeting on irc.freenode.org and take notes in the public IRC channel. Please recommend to other attendees that they join, to spread the load of note taking - it is very difficult to take notes and chair a meeting at the same time.

Meeting minutes and raw IRC logs are saved at the LF IRC log server under the IRC channel name (e.g. for acumos-meeting).

The full guide to MeetBot syntax is here.

When your meeting is finished,  add a link to the HTML minutes summary to the project wiki page. Below is an example:
