Thanks to all who attended!

At today's meeting of the Community Development task force, we had the
following. You can find all of the information below at the following page:


   - Establish an irregular meeting time.
   - Develop a plan for university outreach and communication.
   - Decide when/where to hold up-coming doc sprints.


Meeting time

   - Resolved: the meeting's appointed time shall remain Tuesdays via Zakim
   at 10:00 Pacific Time, to be held only if there is an agenda.
   - Doug (shepazu): confirm the Zakim reservation and reestablish the
   conference code, 3627 for these meetings.

University outreach

   - Julee to contact Alex (jkomoros) about potential internship funding
   and availability.

   and particulars.

   to sign them up.

   - Julee to edit student recruitment message [1] with more detail about
   internships and specific tasks/projects for recruits.
