GNU Radio developer's call

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Johnathan C. and I would like to
start holding developer’s conference calls on a bimonthly basis. We
will be working through the details of when the calls will happen
based on the feedback of the participants, but currently, we have a
monthly call scheduled for 6 PM EST (11 PM GMT) on the third Friday of
the month, so the first call will be this upcoming Friday, Feb. 18,
2011.

A second call will be scheduled sometime during the first week of the
month. This call’s schedule will be more fluid based on who can
participate and when. When the time is selected each month, we will
email you to let you know.

The calls are meant to last an hour and will give us a chance to
discuss the current and future developments of the project. The
current schedule for the first call is listed below. In the “open”
slot, I would ask that anyone who will be participating to email me
ideas for things that you may want to talk about. I will collect these
thoughts and put together a final agenda before the call. I expect
many of these issues will be discussed over many calls.

Call mechanics:
We have a SIP line set up for the calls that are associated with the
IRC channel #gnuradio on freenode. The SIP contact to call is
sip:[email protected] You should then hear “Welcome to the
GNU Radio conference bridge.” You can also log into the IRC chat room
as a secondary way of interacting with the call, although this should
not be necessary.

I would recommend that if you are planning on joining the call and
have never set up a SIP client on your computer before, do so and test
it out beforehand to make sure the audio system works.

Agenda:

  • GNU Radio release 3.4
    • what are the new features
    • handling the transition from git master 3.4 to 3.5
  • GNU Radio conference
    • work on getting specifics nailed down (time, date, format, etc.)
  • Other

Thank you,
Tom

Here is the information regarding tomorrow’s developers call.

After playing around with the system a bit, I would like to stress
that anyone who will be joining us to please use a proper headset. If
you are planning on using your computer speakers, please don’t! This
tends to add a very annoying echo that will make it impossible to
carry on a decent conversation. Use either a full-on headset with
microphone or at least a pair of earphones to remove any feedback.
Also, I would ask that if you are not talking or planning to talk for
a while, hit your mute button to cut down on a build-up of ambient
noise. This should help make it a better experience for the rest of
us.

Could you post meeting minutes or a summary of some kind? I am very
interested in any new features in 3.4, and I am sure most others on this
list are as well.

Thanks

Yes. One of the reasons for tying the call to the IRC channel is so
that we can try our best to keep a record of the call. I would also
love it if someone would volunteer to act as scribe during the call to
keep the thoughts consistent and recorded. If no one wants to take
that one, I hope the normal IRC chatter will be enough.

We can also record these calls and publish the audio file. I’m not
certain I want to do this for the first call, but it’s something to
keep in mind for later.
