We need a couch in the office, for sunday-afternoon naps after long, long meetings of the KDE e.V. board. Since we need some more furniture for the office anyway — shelving for storing schwag, some organizing cabinets and things to keep down clutter and a better monitor stand for Thorsten — we just might end up ordering a cheap one. It might improve efficiency in the long run. Some complicated discussions today about interacting with the KDE community and the membership of KDE e.V., since the board has a formal role in the association but is also composed of KDE contributors. Planned some bits and pieces for Akademy. I finally got around to booking a hotel — far away from Team Humongous, so bedtime stories are going to be an issue. And I was just finishing up an ecological fairytale for sharing, too.
A board meeting wobbles between abstract, long-term thinking (for instance) about financing developer sprints and procedures around those sprints and really concrete things like (for instance) ensuring that we have a stable document storage facility or brainstorming potential KDE SC release codenames. It’s a fun kind of meeting, but it really takes it out of you. I’ll be glad to take an extra nap on the train back home tomorrow. Given that the train leaves Berlin at 6:37am, that shouldn’t be all that difficult. I’d like to thank Claudia and Thorsten for taking time out of their weekend to facilitate the meeting, and applaud Celeste for doing crazy stuff.
