IRC for minutes/discussion: #svg on, port 6665

WebEx logistics:


Minutes are taken on a rotating schedule (ie. the person who took minutes most recently should be the least likely candidate for the next meeting Minutes Archive.

You are encouraged to take minutes on IRC, using the "#svg" channel on You can use a dedicated IRC client, or W3C's browser-based CGI interface.

In order to get automatic logging you need to tell trackbot to start the telcon: trackbot, start telcon. Trackbot in turn invites rrsagent which does logging and makes minutes, and zakim, which does bridge and agenda management. To wind up a telcon and make minutes, type trackbot, end telcon (which in turn will issue the commands zakim, bye and then rrsagent, make minutes).

RRSAgent will give a url to the minutes, copy the url and append ",text" to it, load it and copy the text output into an email. Copy the original url that RRSAgent provided, add that to the mail too. Then send the mail to, using a subjectline that includes the meeting type and date. For a complete example, see e.g
