Lucid-e2 or Maverick

It was decided to get the Lucid-e2 release out of the way as soon as possible to allow work to begin in earnest on the Maverick edition. A date of Monday the 16th of August was decided and this schedule was agreed on.

Clarification of the release process

After some initial confusion as to what was meant, it was decided that a checklist of things to do when releasing the manual would be useful to make sure everything is done. dutchie is to write up an example wiki page here for feedback in the next meeting.

Website discussion

Some new mockups by humphreybc (link to flickr set) were shown and generally ooh'ed and ahh'ed at. The lack of web developers to assist our currently very busy one was noted.

The bug form here was also brought up. It's currently quite slow, and could do with a performance enhancement. There is a document accessible via for feedback.

Whether the project needed a dedicated forum was briefly discussed, and unanimously decided not to be needed.

Regular meetings

It was decided that we should have a meeting every 2 weeks to keep project momentum up.

Next meeting

The next meeting was scheduled for Sunday the 22nd of August at 2000 UTC.
