Hi everyone,

With a lot of Blender's development now handled by people who do it as a daytime job, the weekend meetings are increasingly hard to keep interesting and useful.

The Monday morning 2.8 kickoff session (see previous mail) is much more productive.
However, it only suits EU and Asia/Australia, not the Americas.

Proposal: alternate Monday meetings to be 10:00 and 18:00 Amsterdam time. Drop the Sunday meetings.
Other ideas welcome :)

Campbell pointed at what Rust (programming language) does.

1) Forums: (discourse)

2) Weekly activity log

3) Freenode IRC meetings based on interest, scheduled via activity log
#rust-community, #rust-docs, #rust-triage

Especially the triage sessions follow an interesting approach:

4) No mailing lists!

Now I don't think we need to drop mailing lists, but the forums and activity log sound great.
Discourse also might help making our onboarding process better.

What do you think?
