Basic FAmSCo activity

What is this section's purpose?
This section gives some quick health indicators about how much FAmSCo is communicating. Sometimes FAmSCo members can't make a meeting due to travel or conflicts with their $DAYJOB, but the combination of meeting attendance plus email is a nice metric.

FAmSCo meetings

FAmSCo held 4 meetings in March. Attendance was as follows:

  • 4 out of 4 -- Joerg, Susmit, David
  • 3 out of 4 -- Max
  • 2 out of 4 -- Luca, Rodrigo
  • 1 out of 4 -- Maria

So far this year, FAmSCo has held 10 meetings. Overall attendance has been:

  • 10 out of 10 -- Joerg, Susmit
  • 9 out of 10 -- David
  • 8 out of 10 -- Max
  • 7 out of 10 -- Rodrigo, Maria, Luca

Special Meetings

Regional meetings

One of FAmSCo's goals this year is to make sure that at least one FAmSCo member is at each regional meeting that is held.

As of the time this report was prepared, 6 regional meetings held in March had been logged.

  • NA -- 2 meetings, 1 attended by Max.
  • EMEA -- 3 meeting, with Joerg and Max each attending 2.
  • APAC -- Looks like only 1 meeting, with no FAmSCo members in attendance.
  • LATAM -- Nothing logged on the Ambassadors meetings page.

FAmSCo mailing list

FAmSco's mailing list received FIXME messages this month:

What is this section's purpose?
