I was going to propose to discuss GSoC and how to get involved with the students. But the meeting starts at 8am my time and I am driving kids to schools at that time. I will try to join around 8:40 or so, for the last 20 minutes.
Discourse page view limits and hosting options. Currently our free Discourse instance allows 50k page views per month. We now exceed that limit and expect to continue exceeding it going forward. We have an option to upgrade to the Standard Plan ($100/month) at 50% off ($50/month), or self-host. We discussed options of finding a sponsor to support the Discourse fees.
Process for timely and consistent newsletters. We’ll work toward a CI solution that will automatically open a PR with the newsletter draft on a set day of the month. Each month, a person (newsletter champion) will be in charge of making sure that the PR was correctly opened, and then fill out the rest of the newsletter with situational news and events. We’ll maintain a list of newsletter champions for each month in a wiki.
