Incoming/Needs attentionEdit

  • ANNOUNCE: We have a new person starting June 29th! Welcome Ahmon Dancy!
    • I asked Ahmon to prepare a "user manual" by way of introduction focused around answering these questions:
      • Times/hours I like to work
        • 1400-2300UTC
      • Conditions I like to work in (quiet, collaborative, outside, etc)
      • Best ways to communicate with me (IRC, video call, asynchronous)
        • IRC/Slack and email
      • How I like to receive feedback (written, face-to-face, quarterly, I don’t, whatever)
      • What I’m looking forward to working here
