[ironic] Moving to office hours as opposed to weekly meetings for the next month
Thank you for your email and apologies for delayed response on my side.
It is tricky indeed. I see two potential ways going forward:
- going back to the weekly meeting convention and alternating between two
time slots (similarly to what Scientific SIG and Neutron folks do)
- an additional "sync up" time for the APACs, as you suggested. It could be
a smaller weekly meeting or just an agreed time window (or windows) when
the APAC contributors can reach out to the key team members for direction
etc. From my perspective the key bit is being able to reach out to someone
who will be able to guide me on how best go about the work packages I've
taken up etc.
What are your thoughts on these?
