EPUB 3 Working Group

Information on Meetings


To accommodate the time zone differences the teleconferences alternate between two time slots:

The group uses MIT’s Zoom Account for the calls. See our member confidential announcement for the dial-in data (please, keep the meeting password confidential!). That page also links to ICS files (see attachement links at the bottom of that announcement) to help setting the entries in your personal calendars.

The Group also uses IRC for during the calls for minute taking, queue control, and general chit-chat. See the separate page at W3C for further details. This Working Group uses the #epub channel, and makes use of two bots on IRC:

Joining the call is restricted to the official members of the EPUB 3 Working Group and, possibly, guests invited by the WG chairs. Joining the group for representatives of W3C Members can be done via the join form (this form must be filled by the AC representative of the Member organization).

F2F meetings

Meeting Minutes

Meeting minutes (both for F2F and telcos) are listed separately.

Minute taking

Minutes are taken using IRC, and is based by a collective effort: one of the participants should be the scribe for (part of) a session. The EPUB Working Group will be using a scribe rotation list to avoid relying on volunteers, if you are interested in scribing, please contact the chairs. The rrsagent bot is used to archive the IRC log at the end of the call, and a separate tool (called scribejs) is used to generate the cleaned-up minutes that are published on the Working Group’s Web site.

Minute taking and cleanup is greatly helped by:

(Note that a group specific Web interface to sceribejs) is also available to generate the minutes. This feature is still experimental, though.)

Updating the minutes

The minutes themselves are stored, in Markdown (more exactly in “Kramdown”) on the WG’s core github repository in the _minutes folder.

As described in the separate page on our working mode, meeting minutes are considered as “Drafts” for at least 5 business days; participants of the call have that time ask for changes and/or rectifications on the minutes (such requests should be sent to the group’s public mailing list or via a Pull Request on the minutes themselves). After that (i.e., usually at the subsequent call) the minutes become official.
