New Agenda Items

  • How do we tie up loose ends (or loose projects) on the wiki? When groups are meeting for a purpose, what efforts are made to include others?
    • One example: In this meeting a few months ago, the Utah team took the challenge to work on a beginner's corner piece. It has taken us a long time to get back with you, for various reasons.
    • Later, we heard indirectly about a group that is working on standardization of state pages. The Beginner's Corner would likely figure prominently in that discussion.
    • Not trying to place blame anywhere, just trying to see what ideas we can come up with to make such groups or projects more transparent and inclusive.
