nrcernaSo thank you mr_german and SITarabuta for your great work!16:03

SITarabutaI think 5.7k was what we proposed?16:03

jelknerif we get both, we are on our way making our monthly goal16:05
nrcernanext item: Potential new intern?16:06
nrcernaSITarabuta,  ;)16:06
SITarabutaWell this would be easier to explain on BBB, but I will write just a short description here16:06
SITarabutaI have this friend who is into computers, would like to major in something related and he would like to get some experience.16:06
SITarabutaNot paid, just to mention16:07
SITarabutaAnd that's about it16:07
jelknerSITarabuta, like I told Hisham, I am opposed to "not paid"16:07
jelknerwith the following provision16:07
SITarabutaWell, I am just what he mentioned ;-)16:07
jelknerif he generated revenue16:07
jelknerhe should get paid16:07
jelknerbut he would understand that if no revenue is generated, we can't pay16:08
jelknerACTION done16:08
SITarabutaWell, then I wil correct him ;-)16:08
SITarabutaHe does know Python, but I don't know if that is what he is interested in16:08
jelknerRuby? ;-)16:08
nrcernaDoes he likes front-end? ;)16:08
SITarabutaLet's make him learn everything!16:09
nrcernaeven graphic design?16:09
jelknerLet's talk more on BBB16:09
nrcernathat would be great!16:09
SITarabutaACTION done16:09

nrcernanext item:
nrcernajelkner 16:10
jelknerok, as perhaps you can imagine16:10
jelkneri have been able to think about little else than Decidim since i learned about it16:10
jelknerit is a game changer for us16:10
jelknersince LibreOrganize has already been developed16:10
jelknerit meets my dream of trying to bring democracy to the United States16:11
jelknerso, i would like to discuss the possibility of taking on Decidim deployment as one of the things we do16:11
jelknerand i am willing to use those funds that were supposed to go for LO toward that end16:12
jelkneryou all have to decided how it fits into your plans16:12
jelknerwe can talk more on BBB16:12
jelknerACTION done16:12
nrcernaany thoughts?16:12
SITarabutaWell, a ruby dev would've been nice now16:12
jelknerkeep in mind, SITarabuta, what we need first is a good sys admin16:13
jelknersince we only need to deploy, not develop, at first16:13
SITarabutai mean, with enough patience, all of us can learn docker;-)  that is the point where we get stuck16:14
SITarabutawe mostly handled db, updates, nginx, etc, pretty nicely16:14
nrcernaI was mentioning jelkner that I wanna know regarding how the front end works, and how customizable is16:14
jelknerthat's all we need at first16:14
jelknerit is postgres too, which rocks16:14
nrcernawith LO we have boxes, how they add or replace content? things like that16:14
jelknernrcerna, we need to get it deployed for our own testing16:15
nrcernaseems like they have a theme that all the websites with Decidim are using16:15
jelknerthen we can explore questions like that16:15
SITarabutaso after all16:15
nrcernaso I wanna know how customizable the front end regarding graphics can be as well16:15
SITarabutawe might need some ruby understanding?16:15
SITarabutai mean, we do customize stuff in the end ;-)16:15
jelkneryes, SITarabuta, if we determine there is a business case here16:16
jelknerwe would want to be able to hack on it16:16
jelknerwhich means learning rails16:16
jelknerHisham is going to start us in that direction16:16
SITarabutarails, on rails, ruby, ruby on rails? this is new territory for me ;-)16:16
jelkneri'm working to get rails as what we use for a project he will be working on16:17
nrcernaso as I see if we decide to go with decidim, would be a great opportunity for mr_german, SITarabuta  and Louie to learn together so we're going to have redundancy16:17
jelknerSITarabuta, let's talk in BBB16:17
nrcernaa team that can handle that16:17
SITarabutayes indeed16:17
nrcernaso there's anything else?16:17
nrcernaHisham, any news from UpWork?16:18
HishamThe UpWork site was actually down for the better half of the week16:18
HishamSo not much progress there16:18
nrcernaI see, thanks Hisham16:18
jelknerHisham has his Advanced HTML5 & CSS3 Specialist exam tomorrow, btw16:19
HishamI did also send out a few more proposals though. I hope to hear from them soon.16:19
nrcernawe need to keep trying, Louie sent another platform that we can try later16:19
jelknerSo we needed to give him time to prepare16:19
nrcernabut I don't remember the name now16:19
jelknertomorrow, he'll be done16:19
