Meeting details

Meeting arrangements are posted to the development mailing list: 

All members of the ReDBox and Fascinator communities are welcome to attend these meetings. It's not a hugely formal meeting but we have limited time. This means we'll take a Pig & Chicken approach with TMC members being pigs - no insult intended :) (see

Basic etiquette:

  • The members of the TMC have the floor for discussion but community members are welcome to listen in. 
  • Non-TMC members should have their mic and webcam muted and do not generally contribute to the meeting 
  • ... unless they are directly addressed by a TMC member or listed against a discussion item. 
  • If you disagree with something please use the mailing list(s) to raise your concerns
  • If you would like to raise a discussion item, please email either [email protected] or [email protected] with an agenda item.
