> Hi all,
> The following upgrades have been made to the CCG's teleconference systems:
> * Auto-transcription now turns on automatically when a
>   meeting is being recorded. We are using Google's Speech
>   API, which isn't perfect, but it does an OK job. We'll
>   see if people like it or not; it's a feature, so we can
>   always turn it off if folks don't like it.
> * Auto-transcription now sets the meeting and chairs
>   automatically in the minutes since it knows which
>   meeting is happening and who the chairs for that
>   meeting are.
> * Upgraded to latest stable Jitsi version to fix recent
>   issues with latest Google Chrome release. Tests have
>   been done with latest stable versions of Chrome,
>   Firefox, Chromium, and Safari on versions of Linux,
>   Windows, Mac, and Android that have been released in the
>   last two years (that's 14+ combinations tested).
> * New Jitsi features: interactive polls,
>   YouTube video sharing and synchronized playback, and
>   audio sharing (from application or browser tab) when
>   screen sharing.
> * The scribe-tool now has drop-downs for selecting
>   a meeting and date so that Chairs/Organizers don't have
>   to fetch the IRC log or audio manually.
> * Various non-critical bug fixes and upgrades were
>   performed (e.g., changing "minutes" to
>   "transcriptions", fixing Gmail auto-emailing).
> We have also confirmed that daily backups have been occurring as they
> should
> over the past 18 months with yearly stable snapshots of the teleconference
> system and all archives in the event of any sort of catastrophic failure
> (datacenter fire/flooding/etc.)
> We do expect there to be hiccups with the new system as we start using it
> at
> scale; we'll deal with those issues like we've always dealt with them -- as
> they materialize, we'll do our best to fix them in a timely manner.
