AOSCC 2022 Planning
- Bai: We plan to only schedule AOSCC 2022 for one day on September 27. Do anyone have different plans?
- Liu: Probably not. We don't probably have that much to talk anyways.
- Bai: When to start then?
- Liu: Previously, we scheduled to start at 10am, China Standard Time. But I am afraid some people may not able to wake up at that time.
- Bai: Then when should we start?
- Liu: Hmm... 12pm is probably also too late? Well, let's keep it at 10am.
- Bai: Hmm, there will be two talks before 12pm, then we will reconvene at 2pm.
- Liu: In which case, we can put some less interesting talks before 12pm.
- Bai: Right, we usuaully put yearly review at that time, should be fine though.
- Bai: If Tyson does not come this year, we will focus on the progress reports mostly.
- Bai: If Tyson does come though, we can arrange a round-table talk about the open-source landscape topics, and other people can raise questions etc. He won't need to prepare for any formal talk as well.
- Liu: Sounds fair. Even if he doesn't come, we can still talk about this topic regardless.
- Bai: About the progress reports, OSPP is still going to be one of the main focus here. [Liu] You and Icenowy probably want to talk to your mentee and do the report together with your mentees.
- Liu: That would need prior notice, so the schedule must be decided first.
- Bai: Okay, let's put yearly review at 10am to 10:30am. And then you and Icenowy should go ask your mentees whether or not they want to do the report.
- Liu: Hmm... That's a Saturday in China Standard Time isn't it, I am not sure the availability of the mentee.
- Bai: The schedule is flexible. What about you, Icenowy?
- Icenowy: Well, I guess I would not invite my mentee.
- Bai: So, you want to give up on that project?
- Icenowy: It would be a miracle and a half if they did finish the project at this point.
- Bai: How to present this report?
- Liu: I think the mentee should also get a chance to talk. It's not specified in OSPP rules, but it sure does in GSoC documentation.
- Bai: The mentor will summarize the project and then the mentee will expand on that?
- Liu: Quite right. The mentee should have a sense of participation.
- Bai: I would, however, critize the OSPP committee for the disastrous situation this year. Anything else that should be mentioned?
- Liu: DeployKit is finally in somewhat a good state now.
- Bai: Anything else? I think I am forgetting something here. Ah, Autobuild3 improvements. I think I can present this talk with CambeR. And then
- Liu: Is
nannyin the repository now?
- Bai: Yeah,
vscodeis already using it.
- Bai: Also, Icenowy and CambeR can give a talk about the projects in PLCT Labs.
- Bai: How to string those talks together then? I am thinking to let the next talk immediately start when the last one ends. I believe a fixed schedule is somewhat pointless, as you probably won't talk non-stop for an hour this year.
- Liu: Agreed. Most of the talks may last 15 minutes, tops. Except for the discussions though.
- Bai: We have the dedicated time for that in the afternoon. The round-table talk will happen in the afternoon first, then the discussions.
- Liu: What about the stickers?
- Bai: Nope. I will mention it in the yearly report, albeit very briefly.
- Bai: Okay, let's quickly recap the current schedule.
- Bai: Yearly review will start at 10am, and probably will last about 30 minutes. Then 10am to 12pm will be a block for the lightning rounds. Launch break at 12pm to 2pm. After the break, OSPP report.
- Bai: And starting at 3pm, the critical round-table. After that, discussions, until the end of the day.
- Bai: When do you want the PLCT report to be, Icenowy?
- Icenowy: I will leave the decision to you.
- Bai: Okay. So you are available at the both morning and afternoon time period?
- Icenowy: Yes.
- Bai: Right. I will make the schedule soon.
