Subject: Re: [tm-pubsubj] Draft IRC meeting rules

Peter's message could be a little cryptic for those who were not in Baltimore, so further
explanations may be useful. The meeting has not achieved the quorum to vote anything.
There were only 6 present voting members, out of 13 (including Don Smith and Vivian Bliss,
whose prospective membership period was over for a month or so, and hence had to be
considered as voting members)

Considering the cost of traveling to F2F meetings, and the difficulty to manage efficient
conference calls (less expensive than F2F, but still not cheap) it has been decided to try
IRC meetings. Lars Marius had already stressed here the main advantages of that method:
it's cheap, and keeps track of whatever has been said, making the minutes easy to make. So
this proposal has been accepted by the present members.

Peter has some experience with IRC meetings, and we have set a "blank" one on January 23
at 13:00 UTC of which he has accepted to be the moderator. Hence his quite technical

Hope that helps

> *PROPOSED* Rules for conducting an OASIS PubSubj TC meeting on IRC
> ------------------------------------------------------------------
> IRC client software is available at:
>     Windows: mIRC      (GUI, http://www.mirc.com)
>     Linux:   zIRCon    (GUI, http://catless.ncl.ac.uk/Programs/Zircon)
>              xchat     (semigraphical, http://www.xchat.org)
>              ksirc     (crap, comes with RedHat/KDE)
>              dsirc     (command-line, also original ircII)
>              ZIC       (Zaurus handheld,

>     Mac:     IRCle     (GUI, http://www.ircle.com)
>     All:     ChatZilla (GUI, http://www.mozilla.org)
> Connect to server: irc.openprojects.net
> Join channel:      #topicmaps
> Functions are usually buttons or menus, but most IRC clients also
> accept commands typed on a command-line or in the message-entry
> area, which can be more ergonomic, eg
> /nick somename               sets your nickname
> /join #topicmaps             joins you to the channel (# is required)
> /who                         see who else is in the channel
> /part                        leave the channel
> /quit                        leave IRC
> /msg somename text text...   send a 1-line private message off-channel
> /dcc send somename somefile  send someone a file in the background
> /ping somename               check response time to another user
> Anything not beginning with a slash gets sent to all other members of
> the channel *when you press Return*. You must press Return to send
> your text.
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------
> 1. Modified IRC standard behaviour applies throughout
>     a. No flooding, spamming, or bots*
>     b. No simultaneous membership of other channels during meeting
>     c. No abuse, ad hominem attacks, vendor-bashing, etc
>     d. Keep on-topic
>     e. Don't over-use or abuse private /msgs and /dcc sends
> 2. Meeting-specific behaviour
>     a. No obscure nicks, use forename or variant
>     b. Signal your intent to speak or comment by typing "!" on its own
>     c. Chair gives the floor (donner la parole) to each speaker by
>        typing ">" and the member's nick (ie no speaking out of turn)
>     d. Withdraw a pending request to speak by typing "X"
>     e. Type only whole (short) sentences, not multi-liners: signal there
>        is more to come by ending line with ...
>     f. Raise a point of information by typing "!!"
>     g. Raise a point of order by typing "!!!"
>     h. Ask for clarification by typing "?"
>     i. Email/Usenet-style etiquette applies
>     j. Avoid italics, bold, colour, ASCII "art", etc unless really essential
> Good examples at http://telecollaborate.net/education/IRC.html
