Logistics, Participants, IRC log

  • (skipped)

2. Review Urgent and Not So Urgent Bugs

  • (skipped)

3. TWiki Foundation Discussion

  • Desired outcome: Creative ideas and actions on forming a TWiki Foundation to attract more developers
  • See TWikiFoundation

  • Values a TWiki foundation may bring to companies:
    • Continuous integration tools for admins.
    • A Foundation could fund development efforts that no one wants to fund individually and ensure the result is open source.
    • An app and plugin market place may be developed. Funds will be develop to jump start the critical mass of apps and developers to make the market place sustainable.
    • A foundation helps grow the ecosystem; once big enough it feeds itself.
    • Creating the bridge with the end users (organizations and companies) that use the technology is critical.
    • If we can enhance the idea of this technology as a true enabler of organizational processes in a simple way, organizations will see more value in the platform and adoption would even be greater.
    • The Foundation can fund developments in the methodology of using the technology.
    • Fund dashboards: Program managers and people managers LOVE dashboards.
    • Support efforts of the end users, meaning the learning, sales, marketing areas, who are the ones who are the ones paying for the applications and implementations.
    • The foundation must offer a clear vision of TWiki, a road map and development goals - this is important for companies who want to use TWiki.

4. Miscellaneous

  • Note: Some regular participants were missing today, so we did an informal chat that was productive, see log for details.
