   McCool: wot-architecture and wot-thing-description have been
   just published as RECs
   ... as long as the press release


   Sebastian: wanted to check the status :)

   McCool: would like to talk out developer outreach
   ... the RECs and press release look good
   ... just wondering about minor points like possible translation
   of figures within the spec

   <McCool> mm: I will do twitter right after this

   Sebastian: let's talk about the explainer video

Explainer video

   Sebastian: (shows a video production site)

   McCool: should see the cost vs quality
   ... normalization based on time, etc.

   Sebastian: maximum cost here vs people's rating

   Kaz: all the entries here mean different video producers.

   Sebastian: yes

   McCool: what about the language?
   ... assuming English

   Sebastian: native English speaker would be better
   ... let's look at the rating here

   McCool: maybe value for dollars


     [14] https://www.fiverr.com/maryisabella/create-a-professional-whiteboard-animation-explainer-video

   Kaz: looking into this site is fine
   ... but we might want to ask Coralie about W3C's preferred
   video producers
   ... since we'll hold the upcoming the AC meeting as a virtual
   meeting, and will generate many videos for presentations

   McCool: yeah, talking with Coralie would make sense

   Sebastian: write an email to her?

   McCool: yes
   ... you can explain what we want in the message

   Sebastian: ok

   McCool: btw, we have an explainer document already
   ... and it should be aligned with the newly proposed explainer
   ... we need slightly expanded one

   Sebastian: yeah, but we should be careful not to put too much

   McCool: right
   ... but want to have the text in line with the video

   Kaz: agree with McCool at least from the viewpoint of document

   McCool: can draft some document
   ... maybe we should check the old explainer content is still
   ... the document now should be moved under wot-marketing

   Sebastian: will you do that yourself?

   McCool: yeah
   ... will create a pullrequest for that purpose

Developer outreach

   McCool: how to request deeper tutorial?
   ... need description not only for node-wot but also the other
   ... we really can't necessarily have implementation support
   inside W3C
   ... the WoT CG could work on that
   ... and could have a dedicated calls
   ... people can join the CG
   ... can get some materials there
   ... wondering if recording the tutorial would really make sense
   ... having both of the recorded tutorial and the live tutorial
   session would be useful
   ... would see tutorial for node-gen as well
   ... people might want to have specific topics
   ... need somebody as the leader to do the tutorials
   ... always be there and organize the meetings
   ... maybe would ask Ege about that
   ... and should ask people to give tutorials
   ... essentially re-energizing the WoT CG

   Sebastian: really elaborate the man power

   McCool: right
   ... really serious problem
   ... Ege doesn't have to give tutorials himself
   ... we should decide to do it
   ... and then think about who to organize it
   ... should have a Chair

   Kaz: think we should check with PLH and Wendy as well

   McCool: why don't we talk about them about the developer
   outreach issue itself?
   ... can we use W3C resources like WebEx as well?
   ... developer outreach itself is very important for WoT
   ... we need to negotiate them about this topics to clarify the
   relevant process

   <scribe> ACTION: kaz to talk with plh/wendy about expected
   developer outreach including the possibility of reusing the WoT

   McCool: ok
   ... assuming it's OK, what should be done?
   ... should make decision on date/time for the possible calls
   ... someways evening is good but someways not
   ... personally pretty open with Thursday and Tuesday
   ... Team Contacts don't have to be there, I think
   ... maybe we can use the CG mechanism not only for developer
   outreach but also getting requirements from them
   ... ok
   ... that's all from me

   McCool: next week, do we want to look at the marketing site?
