   Daniel: goes through the agenda topics
   ... anything to add to the agenda?

Scripting TF lead

   Kaz: last week Sebastian asked who should lead this scripting
   API task force
   ... Can we discuss it today? I myself am OK if two of you would
   co-moderate the TF.

   Daniel: sure, I think we should talk about it in the marketing
   agenda item
   ... is it ok?

   Kaz: ok

Previous minutes

   <dape> last minutes

     [13] https://www.w3.org/2020/12/07-wot-script-minutes.html

   Daniel: we had a discussion about updating links
   ... then we had a discussion about discovery

   Zoltan: yes, we discussed the latest changing in the discovery
   document and how that will effect the scripting api

   Daniel: did you take any resolution?

   Zoltan: not much, we just decided to monitor the discovery task

   Daniel: should we publish the minutes?
   ... ok minutes accepted

Marketing text

   Daniel: in the new website it will be a section about the
   activities and one dedicated to our group
   ... mccool proposed a template
   ... I sketched a simple example to what we can put there

   <dape> Proposal

     [14] https://github.com/w3c/wot-marketing/pull/102

   Daniel: the template contains a place for the task leader, what
   should we put there? my proposal is to have three of us as
   leaders (Zoltan Daniel and Cristiano)

   Kaz: Usually, having three task leaders is not really
   ... Zoltan could be listed as editor

   Zoltan: it makes sense

   Daniel: I feel that zoltan is still doing a lot, he deserves to
   be there

   Zoltan: I have another proposal, let's chose one person as task
   force leader
   ... we can do a rotation
   ... now I like to have Daniel for his involvement in TD task

   Kaz: if we do a rotation, we should clarify the process
   ... moderator is not just an active participant

   Cristiano: I'm fine with the current state and having Daniel as
   task leader

   Kaz: my suggestion is simply asking Daniel to take the lead
   ... we should first polish the task force wiki and then just
   transfer what we have in the new website

   Daniel: I am working on it

   Kaz: since the Wiki is still the first point of contact for the
   newcomers it should be kept updated
   ... in parallel the marketing web site can be synchronized

   Daniel: I agree, so my proposal is to take the text from the PR
   and copy it to the Wikipage
   ... please review the text so that we can go ahead

   Zoltan: we should keep in sync also github documents (e.g.,

   Daniel: so the todos are: add link to wiki page from github
   repo; add text to wiki what task force is doing; add wiki link
   to github wiki

   Kaz: I don't think we really need the github wiki

   Daniel: on option is to remove the wiki
   ... but I can't do it in this repo

   plus one from my side

   Daniel: about PR marketing text, we had different template
   propsal. Template modification can be discussed during the
   marketing call

   Kaz: we should also clarify what should be copied from the w3c
   wiki pages

   Daniel: yeah I think this is discussion to be shared with the
   other task forces
   ... meanwhile please review the PR so that we can go ahead
   ... I think these new activity pages are better than before
   because they contain more information about what we really do

   Kaz: I am ok, if the whole wiki information is included
   somewhere and nothing is lost

   Daniel: can someone review the text?

   Cristiano: I'll do it this afternoon

   Daniel: it's a first step towards a better website

Scripting issues

   scribenick: cris_

   <kaz> [15]Issue 224

     [15] https://github.com/w3c/wot-scripting-api/issues/224

   Cristiano: I am proposing to put version under WoT namespace

   Zoltan: I think it is not best practising to have version
   variable avaible during runtime
   ... we should encourage programming by version and we should
   keep a stability in the API

   Cristiano: I agree, the problem is that we don't have really a
   use case for having this variable avaible

   Daniel: I agree, we have to find the use case
