Much of it has been about improving Fortran-lang projects and processes, but people have been demoing their projects as well. I’d like to see more of those. Calls are casual and free-form and anybody is welcome to discuss anything Fortran-related. There’s no formal reviewing and approving of the agenda–if you’d like to discuss/demo a project of yours, just write in this thread and it will get on the agenda.
At some point I would like to discuss the potential improvements/missing features for VS Code’s Modern Fortran and how could we use the extension as a testbed for existing Fortran-lang projects.
For the latter I have some ideas such as adding build support for fpm, or offering newly created projects to use stdlib. Probably, there are a lot more things that VS Code could be used for and I would be interested in finding out how they can help Fortran-lang grow as an organisation.
However, realistically, I don’t think the extension will have been transferred to Fortran-lang by April 22 since Microsoft is taking a considerable amount of time to respond to queries, so this discussion might have to wait until May.
I’ve done this twice now. Once for Visual Studio, and once for Atom. I would be happy to provide any insights I’ve gleaned in doing so, and what improvements I’d make if you’d be willing to create a similar plugin for VSCode.
My idea was to incorporate it into the VS Code extension similar to cmake (which I have yet to do). Your help would be greatly appreciated. If you want to join the development of the VS Code extension please ping one of the admins here

Here is another, minor, point for the agenda: more tutorials? And if so, what tutorials? I have in mind one on code coverage - not very difficult, but still you need to know the right steps and they differ per compiler.
