Apologies for the delay in circulating this summary of our call on 26th
April. But here's a link to the video and a summary of the key suggestions.


The call was a discussion around the hand-off between discovery of an
opportunity and then participating, which may involve booking.

We discussed a variety of different types of information that might be
important to participants, which we don't yet have covered in the
specification and/or primer:

* whether an event is free, for members only, or has a price
* whether an event has been cancelled
* who is leading or coaching a session, as distinct from the organiser
* payment methods, particularly if someone has to pay on arrival
* instructions for attending the meeting, e.g. "what to bring", "how to
find the event", etc
* event capacity

We also discussed:

* variety of ways in which pricing information might be communicated, and
the need to use a mixture of open and personal data to create an accurate

* differences between communicating availability for facilities vs classes.
Facilities can be more complex

* issues around sharing of personal data, e.g. contact details for
organisers, coaches, etc.

The key actions are:

* revise the specification and primer to document new fields for covering
participation requirements

* explore how the Schema.org "offers" property can be used to communicate
basic pricing hints, e.g. min/max price

* recommend to the wider OpenActive project that there needs to be
additional guidance around managing and publishing personal data.
