Dial in details

NB These details only apply for the BP sub group, they are different from the joint calls

  Joining instructions: (official participants and invited guests only)
  For audio: WebEx link
  Check IRC for password
  For text discussions, minutes, joining the speaker queue, actions & issues IRC channel: #sdwbp on irc.w3.org on port 6667
  Please be sure to join both IRC and WebEx and use the same nick in both (or it gets very confusing)
  When you join the IRC channel, please immediately type 'present+ {yourname}' (this adds your name to the participants list in the minutes)

  Meeting number: 643 407 318

  W3C Telecon Resources:
  Zakim instructions in English
  Basic instructions in Portuguese

To start the meeting, check that trackbot is in the IRC channel (it usually is). If not, type:

/invite trackbot

Then you can type:

trackbot, start meeting

That should invite zakim and RRSAgent and generally get things ready to go. As a reminder: the Zakim IRC bot handles things like the speaker queue, RRSAgent handles the minute-taking, present and regrets list etc.

Please note that you will see a message that Zakim does not see any meetings scheduled at this time. This is a reference to the old conference bridge (also called Zakim) that is no longer in use. Scheduling is now done under the WebEx system. If you're feeling nostalgic for the old Zakim greeting, it's archived (of course).

Once you have started the meeting, you should see all three bots running:

If any are not in the room, type /invite and then the name of the bot

During the meeting you may need to set the access permissions on the chat log with this command:

RRSAgent, make logs public

Then to create the minutes, type RRSAgent, draft minutes
