So I created a Dropbox paper document where I sketched out roughly the work I think is to be done
it's not 100% complete
I am trying to figure out my week but I'd like to maybe schedule some kind of triage meeting to discuss which tasks are good to focus on first
Hi! Today I have been back at work again in some real capacity, so I'd love to get that triage meeting up and running. I've been reading everything I can get my hands on, but it's mostly directionless at this point and I feel more than a little lost. Ping @nikomatsakis.
@Albin Stjerna :wave:
@Albin Stjerna remind me your time zone? I'll try to get a doodle up and going for us to schedule a regular meeting
("us" in that sentence being "Polonius WG")
@nikomatsakis The not at all Boston-incompatible Melbourne time, that is GMT + 11 I think (DST active)
@Albin Stjerna I see =) tell you what, can you create a doodle poll for various timeslots that would work for you over the next few weeks and send the link
then the rest of us can fill it out :)
(alternatively doodle makes it easy to just create a poll with the same hours every day, so you can just make a broad-based poll and fill it out yourself later)
Ok, here’s a rather high resolution Doodle: https://doodle.com/poll/it8gbfxazcevgc53
The poll doesn't appear to have a time zone specified
@Albin Stjerna yeah, we definitively want a time zone specified
so all the night slots like 3AM were not because of timezone differences ? :joy:
Oh I just assumed it would use my local time zone when I added options, let me see if I can fix that. Also, I don’t think I have any slots 3AM?!
Oh right I do, for the part where I manually adjusted for time zones
Ok, here is a new, shorter Doodle in the right time zone (turns out one has to be using the Web client for making it, it seems). I made it a shorter span: https://doodle.com/poll/586vffqgffydg2qw
@Albin Stjerna oh, nice, I'll fill it out right now. (Trying to lay out my week plan)
That said, those are 2h blocks?
I doubt I can find that much open space anywhere :P
@Albin Stjerna out of curiousity, is there a reason you didn't put any time for tomorrow? (What is my Tuesday, I think you're Wednesday)
it looks like the overlap for me would be Tuesday / Thu late-afternoon (I think that is Wed / Fri mornings for you)
Oh, there were multiple weeks
(Though they still don't include (my) Tuesday)
OK, I scheduled a meeting for Thu 16:00-17:00 UTC-05:00
I could go a bit longer if needed
Great! I used two-hour blocks in order to avoid having a gazillion options, but meant “available at some point during this slot”. Maybe I should have written that somewhere
I left out Tuesday because I’m travelling; Friday morning is best for me!
Should translate to Thursday evening for me
But that’s great
@nikomatsakis I didn’t see your event in the shared calendar though
(By now I’m very time zone paranoid)
Correction: no you’re right and the time zone calculator I used was wrong; it’s Friday morning for me
very good =)
I'll try to leave some more notes in that paper doc in the meantime
oh, I've just voted on the poll but figured that you've already set a time for the meeting, right?
Thursday it's impossible for me, it's my daughter's first birthday :)
according to the doodle monday same time everyone is able too in case we can change it
@nikomatsakis did we set on having the meeting today? or move to monday?
I guess I can watch the video later in case you do it today :)
I think we will have it today, but I was expecting a Zulip meeting
Though maybe voice would be better
I was mostly hoping to focus on setting up some concrete next steps, I didn't really prep for a "teach more about polonius session", although I think there are more of those to do
I want to get @Albin Stjerna's hands dirty, they are trying to do a masters in this area :)
