GeoTools : Retire IRC Meetings


The change process is working; and has removed the need for weekly meetings


Jody Garnett


what time was the meeting again?

This page represents the current plan; for discussion please check the tracker link above.


We introduced a change procedure a couple of years ago in order to be accountable and focus on library stability. One of the reasons this proposal was well recieved by my employer at the time was the amount of overhead represented by making decisions during the weekly IRC meetings.

Now that the proposal process is working; the weekly IRC meetings have lost their focus and are no longer being useful (or attended).

As such I would like to end the weekly IRC meetings.
