  Minutes review


      [9] https://www.w3.org/2021/07/20-wot-marketing-minutes.html

   Sebastian: Last time, I wasn't able to be part of the meeting.
   Thanks, Daniel for taking care.

   Sebastian: Did you merge some PRs?

   Daniel: Yes, we merged the one from Ege, I think.

   Sebastian: You also discussed the social media icons.

   McCool: All README.md have the social media links. Please tell
   me, if one is missing.

   Daniel: The marketing README.md one is missing.

   McCool: Going to fix it.

   Sebastian: Any objections?
   … no objections.

  Summer break

   Sebastian: Should we make clear on the marketing page that we
   are on a summer break?

   McCool: Yes, we should mention it.

   McCool: Under events we should mentioned the cancelations.

   Sebastian: Daniel, can you take that action?

   Daniel: I wonder where to put it.

   McCool: If people join over the website, we should have it
   there as well.

   Daniel: That is fine for me. We can link to the Wiki.

   McCool: Yes, that is fine. Add a link to the Wikipage, that
   people should check first.

   Daniel: Doesn't it belong to the webConf section?

   McCool: You are right. In bold.

   Sebastian: Do you need an issue for it?

   Daniel: No, I noted it down.

  Liason webpage

   Sebastian: Kaz, what is the status of the eClass Liaison? Is it

   Kaz: I'll check with Coralie again.

  Web analytics

   Sebastian: Daniel, do you have any news on this?

   Daniel: Yes, I think the admin has to create a space for us.
   They are getting back to us when they have an update on this.


   Sebastian: Do we have a section for commercial application?

   Daniel: Not at the moment. Since we don't have much, I feel
   like we should just add it to the list.

   [11]PR 191

     [11] https://github.com/w3c/wot-marketing/pull/191

   Sebastian: Any objections to add it to the list?
   … no objections.

   [12]PR 89

     [12] https://github.com/w3c/wot-marketing/pull/89

   Sebastian: It's an old one, right? No news, right?

   McCool: I updated the PR, I think.

   McCool: We would like to have tutorials etc.

   Sebastian: So, we keep it open until they get back to us?

   McCool: Yes.

   McCool: It mostly applies to tutorials, so that people can just
   use it without asking for it.

   Sebastian: Okay, let's just keep it here for now.

   McCool: Do we want to make the marketing call to a WG/CG call?
   Kaz, what do you think?

   Kaz: The WoT CG is not really active.

   McCool: But if we make it a CG and have that license, it makes
   it easier for people to contribute.

   Kaz: That is an interesting question. Especially for the
   Japanese CG. Also maybe it might be better to find a more
   active Chair for the original WoT CG.

   McCool: We can have the japanese cg as task force in the cg.

   Kaz: Yes, we should talk to the japanese cg about this.

   Kaz: We should also think about what to do in the IG and CG.

   McCool: I mainly think for the CG about tutorials etc.

   Sebastian: I understand the motivation for it. I am under the
   impression we have so many groups. It's a lot.

   McCool: I personally think we need to recharter first. Let's
   keep an eye on this. We can invite people as guests to the

   Kaz: Everyone should be clear what group works on what.

   McCool: Right now we recharter the IG. If we reboot the CG, we
   probably want to move the tutorials etc. to the CG.

   Cristiano: I like the idea to open the contribution. The guest
   mechanism isn't good, if we grow enough. We can wait until the
   next charter. That makes sense.

   Sebastian: I would like to have a german CG as well. There are
   some industry companies interested in it. I will make a
   proposal for it.

   Kaz: I am fine with having another CG, as long as they follow
   the charter.

   Kaz: We should just make clear who is working on what. I agree
   with ca, we can wait for now to figure out the responsibilites.

   Sebastian: Ege is looking for a student, which makes a nice
   video. I don't know what the current status is on this.

   McCool: I think we have two issues. 1. Appropriate code and
   documentation and 2. the second one is about the video.

   McCool: Universe course is probably different than a Youtube

   Sebastian: I can't comment on this. We have to ask Ege.

   Sebastian: I have an update. Philipp and I had a call with a
   Youtuber. His name is Shawn. We contacted him, since he did
   some WoT things in the past.

   Sebastian: It was based on WebThings, not the W3C standard.
   Unfortantelty, he doesn't have time for making a video this

   Sebastian: He mentioned that we probably should make an Arduino
   library. So, Philipp is going to migrate the WebThings Arduino

   Kaz: I am skeptical. We should be careful about their
   contributions. If that is a paid contribution that is a very
   different approach from the normal W3C process.

   Philipp: Would it be fine, if we have an external source and
   the WG just decides to embrace it?

   Kaz: Yes, that's a possibility. I would just be careful about
   the procedure.

   Sebastian: I don't think that is part of the W3C. This is
   something outside of the W3C. Just some members also doing
   things outside of the WG.
