Topics Discussed:

  • Getting FourSquare to adopt microformats - what steps can we take?
    • everybody ask Dennis
  • Ben is looking into adding RSS and Atom support to X2V
    • so that microformats in RSS items marked up with HTML and Atom entries with nested (X)HTML can be converted to vCards and iCalendar.
  • Port 25 is dead on the server. According to tobyink, SMTP daemon just needs to be kicked.
    • Tantek will try to SSH, look up how to do this. UPDATE: mailing-lists appear to be delivering mail as before as of 2009-04-08, thanks to help from User:Rohit.
  • value-class-pattern spec page update status / in progress (Ben Ward)
    • date and time separation should go after Basic parsing
    • basic parsing should be renamed for strings only
    • need to specify what should happen for URL and email properties - for now, no support (per microformats principle of needing use cases first, and no use cases have been put forth as of this point).
  • how to make How To Play easier for newcomers, more approachable
    • it should be broken out into sections with good headings for the section
    • you should be able to skim it and start contributing to the wiki without being afraid of being yelled at
  • perhaps extract good portions of Mailing list guidelines to How To Play, e.g. be nice
  • Ariel will look at both How To Play and Mailing List guidelines and give feedback as a community manager.
