We conducted previous meetup on June, mostly focused on updation of poddery tos and privacy policies. Poddery now have a privacy policy and terms of service. One task left to do is fsci wiki updation and i believe we can discuss that in this meetup. Lets conduct October month's meetup on this Sunday (14th). Here is a rough list of topis to be discussed in the meet, you can comment if anything is missed or need to be changed.

  • Restarting poddery funding campaign.
  • Wiki updation and improving documentation.
  • Discussion on resource management for services.
  • Discussion on pending tasks.
  • Presenting reports on conducted events.
  • Plans for programs in next months.
  • Discussing about EU's actions and their aftereffects.

Location suggestions are requested, Thrissur and Kozhikkode are currently available options.

Update: Location is School inside Calicut University Campus (around 300 meters from the main bus stop). Map: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/165599011

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