Meeting Agenda

Introduce new members

Kudos go to ...

  • Janell - for her knowledge in the Wiki and FamilySearch, in general.  She helped a lot with the Roseburg, Oregon Family History Center yesterday.
  • Rorie - for work on "To be Determined" category

Updates and follow up

Maintenance report - Sandra

Most maintenance is going well.  We still have some unresolved issues.

Double re-directs have been taken care of by engineering


  • Janell has a meeting at 9:00 on Tuesday with engineering.  Tech meeting needs to be changed also.  Could we move all of our Tuesday meetings to Thursday?  It would work for the team, but not James Tanner.  We will discuss the change in the 1:00 meeting.  
  • Leadership is interested in better ways of communicating to the Wiki community.  We need to work on a strategy for better communication with our contributors.  What do we communicate to them - how, and when.
