I created a wg-traits repository -- should I move the minutes and things there?

nikomatsakis (Mar 11 2019 at 20:00, on Zulip):

I'd actually like us to take a second to talk about how we are organizing our efforts here --

nikomatsakis (Mar 11 2019 at 20:01, on Zulip):

I've been enjoying the way the meeting is structured, in terms of having "projects we are working towards", and giving a brief update on how it went, and setting a new goal for the week in that context.

nikomatsakis (Mar 11 2019 at 20:01, on Zulip):

I was thinking that maybe we should overlay a kind of "sprint structure" -- i.e., we set our initial projects, work on them for N weeks, then take a look and see if we want to adjust those projects.

nikomatsakis (Mar 11 2019 at 20:02, on Zulip):

As far as the repository goes, I'm not sure if we should try to have files per project? Maybe we don't need that for most things.

nikomatsakis (Mar 11 2019 at 20:06, on Zulip):

To be more specific. I could imagine a file hierarchy like:

where we have notes about each of the active projects there, or I could imagine something like

Or, I suppose, a hybrid, with a single minutes directory but per-project directories containing notes and other files. At minimum, a README.md with links to paper docs and things. This could probably replace the DropBox paper directory by and large, though, and it doesn't suffer from the weird permissions model.

Now that I think more on it, I think I like the hybrid model.

nikomatsakis (Mar 11 2019 at 20:06, on Zulip):

I'll wait to get a bit of feedback though before I take any drastic action. =)

hybrid seems good

centril (Mar 11 2019 at 20:17, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis let's try it; we can iterate on the process here

tmandry (Mar 11 2019 at 20:55, on Zulip):

yeah, what @centril said

nikomatsakis (Mar 12 2019 at 17:54, on Zulip):

OK, I moved the minutes onto that repository. I think documents related to specific purposes should go into directories named after those purposes.
