Program started at 10.45am and continued till 4pm. Hussainar mash was present at the beginning of meeting, but later he had to leave us.
First four of above topics were discussed in the meetup.
* Started with restarting poddery funding campaign.
-- Srud made a report on June-September expenses and we are running on negative balance.
-- Ambady took the responsibility to coordinate the funding campaign.
-- Funding with gofundme is not possible because it is not available for india.
-- Campaigns were decided to start with Milaap and Indiegogo.
-- 18th October was set to do finalize the video production for poddery campaign.
-- A possibility to contact colleges for the promotion of Poddery was discussed and decided to start campaigning on coming days.
-- Create a page for funding campaign.
Meeting decided that there should be an effort to list all free software communities in India, right now these communities are disconnected and no communication or collaboration between them.
A business card idea for FSCI services was discussed.
Documentations for all fsci services should be cleaned and updated in the wiki.
Backup for all services must be set as soon as possible.
Security for all services should be hardened as soon as possible.
Promoting the use of peertube instance was discussed.
Discussion on further programs couldn't be conducted because of lack of time. But lets continue that discussion on Loomio.

@peacerebel inquired about meeting at Kozhikode Parishad Bhavan and the response is positive, they just have to check if any other program is happening there. We will know for sure by tomorrow afternoon. As a last resort we can try @tvm 's office also (this was preferred, but Manu is not available on that day, but he can arrange someone to give us keys if we can't find other place).

Nothing special. We are here to network and execute agendas (given above, which are decided before meet at loomio). Bring a laptop if its fine.
Kannan V M Sat 13 Oct 2018 1:47PM

Didn't get train ticket. And heavy rains here at Thiruvananthapuram. I'm sorry. I won't be able to attend. Do share the meeting minutes. Have a nice meetup.

ഒരാഴ്ചയായി പനി കാരണം ക്ലാസില് പോയിട്ടില്ല. ഇന്നും യാത്ര ഒഴിവാക്കിയേ തീരൂ. ക്ഷമിക്കണം. എന്നാല് ഭാവിയില് കൂടുതല് സജീവമാകാനാകും എന്നാണ് പ്രതീക്ഷ.

Basic server management training if new people volunteer. Kozhikode is closer but if more people prefer Thrissur, I can come there as well.
