First 2023 SWICG meeting call on Fri May 19

Hi everyone,

Finding a regular meeting time slot that works with everyone continues to be a challenging task.

In the interest of getting momentum going, we’ll be having our first SWICG call of the year this coming Friday, May 19, at 9 am EST / 6 am Pacific / 3 pm CET over at:

Apologies in advance to those who can’t make it, let’s continue the discussion on what we can do to accommodate more people (perhaps alternate biweekly calls, one on Fri and one on Saturday, etc).


1) (NON-AGENDA item) Although the common first call agenda tradition is introductions, I’m wondering if we can shortcut the introduction process by doing it elsewhere, such as on the SWICG mailing list, or SocialHub forum. Otherwise there’s a good chance that we’ll take up the whole call with introductions.

2) Overview of the W3C Community Group process (code of conduct, governance, etc) to refresh our memories.

3) Discussion and proposals for: 

* What are the goals and current focus of SWICG

* What is SWICG’s relationship with the other centers of community and discussion, such as SocialHub, Fediverse Enhancement Proposals (FEP), the Fedidevs Matrix chat rooms. (My view on this: We can all work together with those communities, without co-opting or interference.)

* Governance process for adopting Work Items. (For a good example of an existing effective Work Item Process, see the Credential Community Group’s process doc: )

4) Other discussion as time allows.
