   christian: [20]https://www.w3.org/community/rax/ - see
   description on main page of the group

     [20] https://www.w3.org/community/rax/

   christian goes through description

   christian: any commments on the way we approach this? can also
   be positive :)

   gerard: looks like a quite useful and practical approach, let's
   see how it works

   florent: so far so good


   <Labra> +1 also sounds good for me

2.1 group mission

   <scribe> done already

3.1 chair

   christian: I can be chair, to achieve more would be great to
   have a co-chair
   ... if there is volunteer to help, esp. at the start, that
   would be really appreciated
   ... any volunteers?

   florent: I am in many groups, if there is nobody else I can do
   that, otherwise rather not

   phil: I would be happy to help


     [21] https://www.w3.org/community/rax/participants

   felix: use the above link to nominate christian and phil as
   chairs and support them

3.3 github

   christian: felix proposed to have some repo at github to gather
   ... w3c can take that up later
   ... anybody else who would be willing to spend some space for

   phil and quentin are volunteering

   felix: so have a github that has the group name as account?

   quentin: yes

   christian: who will set that up

   rob: I can do that

   <scribe> ACTION: rob to set up github account [recorded in

     [22] http://www.w3.org/2016/06/10-rax-minutes.html#action01]

   christian: how about rax-w3c?

   <fgeorges> [23]https://github.com/w3c

     [23] https://github.com/w3c

   <scribe> ACTION: felix to check if we can use w3c github for
   the CG repo [recorded in

     [24] http://www.w3.org/2016/06/10-rax-minutes.html#action02]

4. communication

   christian: propose to have call bi-weekly, a call one hour

   proposal was friday 2 p.m. like now, we are open for changes

   scribe: for me dates like Monday or Friday are always better
   ... is the time slot ok for everybody?

   phli: friday is a good day for me - 12 p.m. UTC?


   christian: next call then 24 June. I will travel that hour
   could make it one our earlier. Not that nice for US

   felix: propose to keep the slot, except the one time in two
   weeks from now

   for all the 2 p.m. slot on friday is OK

   quentin: next time won't attend, in general it is OK

discussing github account

   labra and florent - created organization for free, including
   different teams

   florent will ping rob later to see whether he can do the action



   christian: we can do personalised outreach for sure. If there
   is an existing pipeline / channel that we can use for

   <Labra> I have checked in github and it seems that "rax" is
   already taken, however "rax-w3c" seems not to be taken

   use "Everyone start promotion using #rax @w3c" - the hash tag
   to promote

   thanks, labra - rax-w3c sounds good to me

   christian: need to talk then about common issues and use cases

   felix: maybe send your stuff to the list to share it with
   others, then its more stable share it with the group

   christian: ok. If you have topics you want to cover share it
   with me + phil and find out if there are commonalities and list
   things, so that we have for you a rather ease process so that
   not everybody has to read everything every time


   <quentin> will a mailing list / google group be created for
   internal communication?

   florent: what will be our deliverables?

   internal list:

     [25] https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/internal-rax/

   christian: idea is to address certain issues and topics that
   exist and that more than one in the group has
   ... depending on the type of issue we have we work on the
   solution. The solution will be the deliverable = a best
   practice. That is one deliverable.
   ... so I would not restrict that to something specific
   concerning the format right now, will always depend on what we

   florent: that is fine
   ... I did not mean the format but what we want to achieve, as I
   take it it is not yet ready

   christian: we need to collect issues in the next weeks and then
   group them into commonalities. Then we see that some partners
   have the same as others.


   felix: chairs should say what they prefer - to send everything
   to the list or to the chairs

   christian: let's try to collect sending things to me and phil
   ... that is more efficient
   ... also for the group members
   ... if you want to see everything that happens please let me

   gerard: once you have received everthing, could you produce a

   christian: sure, we will make a summary with the details as
   well to make things concise

   felix: include the submitter of issues in the summary

actions for the group

   christian: please share what you have to the group list
   ... then share your requriements with me and phil ritchie. we
   will make that available for the next call

   the earlier you can send stuff the better

   scribe: if you have s.t. now share it, and you can also bring
   up new things after the next call

AOB again

   christian: we have a good start, now need to find out what is
   of interest to the people, then we can start working

   florent: will there be an agenda before every call?

   christian: yes, will send agenda a few days before

   felix will provide a gotomeeting

   christian: thanks a lot for joining, looking forward to work
   with you!
