Given that this week is Rosh Hashana and next week is Yom Kippur,
traditionally 2 weeks holiday in Israel, does it make sense to
maintain the weekly call? I'd suggest cancelling this week and next
week's meetings, and having a "drive to 3.2" meeting in 2 weeks time.
What do you think, Mike?
As "the casual observer who used to be in these
meetings more often" --
I know that it was mentioned last week that there would be a number of
folks out through mid-october; holidays off in Israel extend past Yom
Kippur. I'm not sure how large that group is, but that would actually be
more like 3+ weeks; Sukkot ends on October 8th. That's a fairly good
stretch of time with (hopefully) other activities in the works that need
Results usually vary, but it might be worth trying to have meetings;
there are other activities which don't necessarily require the presence
of the folks in Israel. I've found that using holiday-ish times is
usually good for things like brainstorming, finding easy fix-it items,
etc; "top 5 wiki pages that need love," analyzing data/statistics on
downloads from a new release. I'd be happy to pop in one of the weeks
and talk a bit about release manager stuff from a features/schedule/etc.
perspective, and I know Leslie has ongoing things with events -- maybe
looking at collateral/flyers/handouts, new swag ideas, marketing stuff
might be fun. Or there's always try out oVirt in the Fedora 18 Alpha
release, or plan a test day around it :D... oh, wait, I might be biased
These things are always difficult; it's less exciting to have not as
many folks in the meeting, and sometimes not incredibly productive, but
I always feel like I'm somehow discouraging/disenfranchising people in
other regions when cancelling meetings because of local holidays. I
usually try to just keep the pulse going and try and bring in other
folks to do some fun stuff that may be more enticing than usual :)
Of course, all IMO - not trying to throw myself under the bus for
anything here (except the release manager notes/observances). Those
intending to show up get to make the decision! :)
