      3. 5.1.2 scoping, keeping papers and Paris in mind
        • Josh: 5.1.2 looks rather large, so on priorities list created column for cards proposed to move to later
          • Jean-Marie: please add a note where a 5.1.2 item looks too much to fit in
        • Josh: also note Paris work on other board
        • Jean-Marie: will start moving some tickets later in the week, and workshop preparation takes time

      • Jean-Marie: expect some adjustment for the lightning talks recently invited on list
      • Jean-Marie: could use these weekly team meetings for workshop presentation rehearsal

      • Colin: okay to do import workshop presentation for next week’s meeting
      • Jason: have draft presentation together for all workshops on the Trello card by May 15
        • to be reviewed that following week for last edits for another run-through at end of May
      • Curtis: would be helpful to be able to batch people to schedule, to avoid repeating many times
      • June: sorting out fifth speaker
        • Jason: any ideas for interesting speakers, tell us now
    3. Glencoe Update (Chris) - 14:45 UK

      • OMERO.web performance PRs still in progress (for many images, wells, fields)

        • Chris: should be okay

        1. Gus: Jason replied to the Scottish Dentistry thread

    5. FLIMfit/OPT (Ian) - 14:53 UK

      1. Bug reports slowly filtering in. Seem to be realistic.
      2. J-m: planning release before Paris? Would like to have a 4.8.1 if the embarrassing bugs can be fixed. 5.1.1 support is on the backburner due to the bugs.

    • nothing
  4. Social Media status update (Kelli) - 14:56 UK

    • see presentation
    • Curtis: uses Google+ for professional stuff; automated content sharing may enable low-effort Google+
    • Jean-Marie: strategies for increasing followers?
      • Kelli: Twitter steadily increasing, looking at how to do better still with Facebook, LinkedIn
      • Will: if a PR is merged that delivers something people have wanted, worth mentioning
        • Chris: importance of good PR description, screenshots, conversation in the comments, etc.; content can be interesting for other software developers; also benefits OME team
      • Jean-Marie: could also expose work earlier, e.g., scoping documents; might benefit from outside ideas
        • Helen: on the list for the blog
        • Chris: cautious about exposing internal preliminary discussion, but could be good for chosen items in an environment we control
    • Chris: good social media progress can be ascribed to some kinds of content (and kinds of followers?) more than others?
      • Kelli: many retweets, etc. can be from random, lighter things; though, it is hard to tell, no obvious patterns yet emerging
    • Chris: how well does social media outreach bring users to other resources, e.g., the website?
      • Kelli: so far, hard to tell, partly because we don’t have the usual feedback through a sales team
    • Jason: also wondered if other handles for separate streams of content would be good for reaching different communities, e.g., a software-developer-focused one
    • Roger: more contributions to blog from team? Initial posts have been careful high-effort ones.
      • Kelli/Helen: good idea
      • Will: could source existing material for story of a feature from design to production
      • Roger: the Travis blog may be a good model, even includes initial discussion of things later abandoned
      • Chris: note that all this takes actual sustained effort
      • Helen: PRs against blog repository welcome
