|WOLFcon recap and action items||CC|
Paula - Note that we can't be sure of surplus. Thinks that the three councils need to discuss more
Harry - We might want to out money aside this year and then spend on WOLFcon. Could be lots of things like making attendance free, work to grow community
Boaz - Feel we are stuck with what we are working on, can we invest the money in other things. One idea is investing in onboarding developers or training developers. Can be tied to DEI. Think about values for community driven work
Paula - At meeting did have surplus for end FY22 and agreed to put that as reserve fund
Simeon - Think we should agree on the goal for reserve fund
Simeon - Think from cross council meeting that the amount of money is small compared with resource needs for FOLIO, we need to use it in a way that leverages the small amount to help get more resources
Marc Johnson - From TC have had discussions of bringing initiatives forward for funding, discussion sounds different
Mike - Should decide on reserve level. Multiple ideas for how to spend surplus and should circle back with discussion.
Mike - Other discussions included platform and product, what we other key topics or actions?
Simeon - Think we should get to the bottom of what we mean by "the FOLIO platform"
Simeon - Suggest that we schedule more cross council meetings. I think that quarterly might be a good idea.
Kristin - Being able to discuss cross council was really helpful, highlighted areas where councils thinking differently. Would like to discuss definitions further, these are foundational to knowing what the work is.
Marc - TC discussed and agreed that we need better cross council collaboration
Tom - Agree that defining product and platform is essential. Resourcing group may help with how best to apply funding, next meeting is this time next week
Mike - Cadence of cross council meetings? Quarterly, monthly?
Kristin - We'd want to make sure our agendas are well-thought, regardless.
Marc - Have attended meeting of all councils and notes gaps between them and concerns about the governance model. Might also be other channels as
AGREED - Quarterly meetings
ACTION - Mike will work with other chairs to set them up
Ian Walls - the Platform is the common base for FOLIO LSP, ReShare, and various regional builds (each of which are Products)
Mike - How/where should the platform and product be defined?
Kristin - Think it needs to be a tri-council discussion. There is a significant marketing
Marc - Notes that TC have an initiative going on call "platform minimal". This has an idea of platform baked into it that perhaps isn't what everyone agrees with. This might not be the same definition as we want for marketing.
ACTION - Mike will coordinate with other chair/co-chairs to facilitate the cross council discussion
Marc - Notes concerns about governance model, that was his number one thing from TC.
Boaz - Though there was discussion of accountability and who owns decisions. May want to spend time
Marc - I agree we need to spend more time. We have two levels of misalignment wrt platform:
Simeon - Think that question of authority was key topic in second day. Think sense was that we need to refine current model rather than trying to make major changes so soon. For example, want to empower TC to publish agreements clearly so at least we can tell how much is it being followed
Kristin - WOLFcon was a good opportunity to think about how to influence and guide the project without formal authority. In open source we often can tell people what to do.
Marc - TC has recently had somewhat fraught discussion where it has realized that it can provide guidance but doesn't have authority. Agree that agreements should be written down so that we can see whether guidance if followed. However, TC doesn't have capacity to carefully track where this is followed.
Mike - Put lots of effort into cross-council discussion including definition of "product" and "platform", and where responsibility and authority lies
Ended FY22 with a surplus which we will use to create a reserve fund.
Barring unforeseen expenses, expect a modest surplus at EOY
AGREED discuss next time the timescale for developer funding (current commitment is through end Dec 2022)
AGREED discuss next time the reserve level we would like to aim for (currently have $90k which is about 3 months, best practice is 3-6 months)
|Additional agenda items||CC|
Tom - Notes prior CC agreement for CC members to follow up with 3 people each to better understand opportunities to improve FOLIO
ACTION - Everyone to add responses to https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-F613EM2d4pOwgRQobRQyS0k5T2T9RjoprNcfA_NLa0/edit in time for discussion at next meeting
