User:KSmith (WMF)/Hosting an IRC meeting
This is my quick attempt at a HOWTO. I haven't poked around to see if something similar already exists.
Announce the meeting on other relevant channels, such as:
RFC meeting starting now in #wikimedia-office: Drop requirement to define a talk namespace for every subject namespace
In the channel, start the meeting, e.g.:
#startmeeting RFC meeting
Set the topic:
#topic RFC: Drop requirement to define a talk namespace for every subject namespace
Link to any relevant materials:
As ideas or decisions come up, document them:
#idea mark bad titles in api output
Finally, mark the end of the meeting:
The bot will respond with links to the minutes, which presumably should be captured elsewhere, such as in the Phab task being discussed.
