0.- OCP [30min]

We think this point is orphaned but we talk a bit to try to understand better the differences ways to develop good apps for Faircoop

1.- Chiara asked in name of LN London to host the LN webpage.

We want to create a proposal with all Local Nodes include subdomain or a space inside the main website and calendars… Al-Demon want to talk with London LN and other to try to find needs

2.- Review projects in course

  1. Blog (why change theme without testing, no support, no manual…

The project are not 3 environments now .. I, Al-Demon think this need to be but @Roland not agree if budget is very tight… we continue talking about our method later.

- Website (Mainwebsite is almost finish)

What are the open issues? When did we make the formal decision to use Grav? Who should make this decision? Didn't we say that we test it until end of March? We agree to put on production grav version without blog and add the calendar link. Blog needs to be discussed with content and local node people first.

3.- @AbrilBoa asks for a hosting space to develop a sample of a SemanticMediaWiki instance

Showing how it can be substitute for FairMarket and UseFairCoin. Also, asks for feedback, to know if such work would be useful, and the proposed tool will be taken in account. For that, a brief explanation: The Semantic extension for MediaWiki allows to fully organize different kind of info, to query it very precisely, and to show it in very different formats (maps, calendars, tables, format files… whatever) with fully customizable templates. Info is semantically editable and queryable by simple forms. I have already done tools for mapping and for market (among others) with SemanticMediaWikil, and not many hours are needed to build the tool. Also, once is set up, it needs no tech-admin or maintenance, so it is very cheap; users can 'admin' easily theirselves (see the horizontal and distributed autonomy in WikiMedia projects). I will try to attend the meeting, but will be hard for me to be at 19:00. Can you add some links of your tools? Yes, please show a showcase - looks promising!
