  • Technical Project Advisory Roles
    • The Technical Project Advisors and I met via GoToMeeting, early this week.
    • Everyone introduced themselves to the group on the call.
    • I answered all question they had about the Projects Infrastructure and the wiki.
    • The task for the group is to get familiar with the project handbook, project page, assessment criteria V1, V2, and V3.
    • We will be discussing new ideas regarding the assessment criteria, the next time we meet.
    • I am currently putting together a story that will announce this initiative on our blog.
