At the end of the meeting

Do the following right after the meeting (because the agenda and regrets get wiped away after the meeting):

  1. Enter the following command in the #eo IRC channel:
    • trackbot, end meeting
    Make sure it works and you get: "<RRSAgent> I have made the request to generate http://www.w3.org/20XX/XX/XX-eo-minutes.html trackbot"
  2. Download the content from: http://www.w3.org/YYYY/MM/DD-eo-minutes.html
  3. Agenda: Copy the agenda items from https://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/EOWG_Meetings#agenda - make sure to get the list markup up and links for HTML
  4. Regrets: Make sure you have all the regrets from the attendance questionnaire (Note that this is formatted as a definition list <dl>.)
