From W3C Wiki


Chair: Ann Bassetti
Scribe: Volunteer, or first available from Scribes list 
Regrets: Larry Hawes


Chair to start the meeting by typing on irc:

trackbot, start meeting

Trackbot should already be on the channel but if for some reason it is not call it with the following command:

/invite trackbot

Zakim won't know what meeting it is. Just ignore it. Pick a scribe from the list or ask Zakim to pick one up with the following command:

Zakim, pick a victim

Unfortunately Zakim has no idea who's scribed before so you may have to ask several times before getting an acceptable answer...

Then type:

scribe: xxx

Also, with WebEx, Zakim doesn't know who is on the call so, as people join they should record their attendance with the command: present+ <nickname>

For additional info, see the Zakim documentation page.

From earlier agenda:

Social IG Open Issues on GitHub still active?

In the Social IG GitHub repository (, there are 9 open issues ( All opened by elf, but a couple of them have some comments.

Elf, are these issues still open? Are they your personal "to-do's", or for the whole group? What are next steps for these?
