Be Prepared for Your Meeting

Be Considerate of Others

  • Please be on time for your meeting, and end on time.
  • The conference line is a shared resource for our community's use in our open source projects. Please do not use it for third-party or personal meetings.
  • Be sure to confirm (and add) your meeting time on the Community Meeting Calendar to ensure others aren't using the service at the same time.
  • Please don't schedule meetings "back to back". Allow time for one meeting to wrap up before the next meeting begins.
