In-person Community Group meetings
It appears unlikely that we will be able to plan to get together at an in-person event this coming spring. There is still uncertainty over whether events like Musikmesse in Frankfurt and The NAMM Show in Anaheim will occur as currently planned, and it appears that logistically not all of the co-chairs will be able to attend either of these events in any case. Other potential opportunities for an in-person meeting in the spring present similar challenges.
Therefore the co-chairs propose that we will continue to meet online this year. Our last community group meeting was in October, so our current thinking is that we will plan for an online community group meeting in the autumn.
It may be that one or more of the co-chairs is in attendance at either Musikmesse or The NAMM Show, and if so, we will aim to arrange a social gathering for any community group members who are also in attendance.
Pull request #281 has been prepared by Adrian to bring the staff and system layout changes proposed in issue #185 into the specification. Christina Noel has prepared a set of music examples that demonstrate these new features in action, which you can find here. We are currently gathering feedback on the pull request and certainly welcome further feedback from community members who may not have yet had the opportunity to review the changes. The co-chairs request that any further feedback is submitted on the pull request itself by the end of this coming Friday, 4 February 2022.
Following the merging of this issue, we will turn our attention to the proposal for styling in issue #263. The best way to get familiar with the current state of this proposal is to read Joe Berkovitz’s comment from 3 December 2021.
The next co-chairs’ meeting will be on Tuesday 15 February 2022.
