>From my point of view, it could be nice to organize a 2 days virtual in
October or November. Because it could be great to meet, discuss, solve
some issues, share progress or blocking points, etc.. More importantly,
it is also a good occasion to do a repeat in case the FOSDEM would be
canceled or replaced and the Guix Days would become virtual.

Some ideas about a Virtual Event are:
a. Hack together on stuff
b. While also having some presentations
c. Smaller discussion and working groups
iii. stream via m3u reading with vlc or mpv
iv. asciinema for pair programming
v. voice chat, mumble
vi. Emacs server for pair programming
Issues about tools:
i) weak machine or browser crash; bad experiences
ii) does it scale for ~50 participants
>From LibrePlanat , I do not see what was the point a). And I am not
sure that a) and c) will be easy to setup for a first try.
Recently, we had the national French conference JDEV  and they
switched from an in-real-life week to a full streamed event. In the
coming days, I will ask them their feedback; especially about the tools
and the infrastructure.
If someone knows someone who someone who… well if someone has experience
on streaming event, please share. :-)
In terms of date, I think that the days Friday and Saturday are good
choice. And if I have to pick one, I would say: 6-7 November, from 9:30
to 18:00 CEST. We can compute a median for the timezone and pick one
In terms of presentations, we could send a Call for Presenting, and I
have topic such as Installer, Hurd, Authentication, SWH, Maven build
system, Data Service, Outreachy and GSoC, etc. so much more :-) and the
format could be pre-recorded videos or live demo.
The difficulty is to manage the question-answers.
Please tell me what do you think?
