Weekly on Wednesdays, 21:00 UTC or in your local timezone


Connection details in the W3C Member restricted archive. You can also email Dave Raggett <dsr@w3.org>.

See WebEx Best Practices for further information


To contribute to chat, minutes, joining the speaker queue, actions & issues - join the IRC channel: #dxwgdcat on irc.w3.org on port 6667 - to add your name to the participant's list in the minutes, immediately type

 present+ your_nickname 

Please be sure to join both IRC and WebEx and use the same nick in both (or it gets very confusing)

See Efficient IRC for cheat-sheet on use of IRC channel.


To use RRSagent - when you first log onto IRC type:

 /invite Zakim #dxwgdcat
 /invite rrsagent #dxwgdcat

- then make sure the logs are public

 rrsagent, make logs public
 (minutes will also be public) 

- add the scribe nickname

 - scribenick your_nickname

- at the end of the meeting, to generate minutes

 rrsagent, create minutes

More hints for scribing see https://www.w3.org/2008/04/scribe.html or for even more detail https://www.w3.org/2001/12/zakim-irc-bot.html


Note that to avoid fraudulent use of MIT resources, we are not permitted to post details in a publicly accessible location. This includes the meeting access number, the meeting password, and the link to the WebEx page for the meeting. Please don't share these in a public context.

You can connect to audio for free via your computer provided it has a microphone and audio output. Alternatively, you can dial in with a regular telephone using the phone number and access code in the meeting details. This is a US phone number so you will incur the corresponding call charges.
