Hi all,

I'm forwarding this Email sent by Mikel since it looks like a lot of
us didn't receive.

The Tasking Manager is simply _critical_ to HOT response in
emergencies, and preparedness projects. There has been a lot of coding
work recently, Pierre Giraud getting V2 in shape for release.
Developers and designers are eager to contribute. Everyone has
creative ideas on improvements and new functionality for the OSMTM.

We love the OSMTM :)

But, what HOT has lacked for OSMTM (and all of its software projects
honestly) are structured ways to communicate, handle feedback, plan
for the future, manage deployment schedule, onboard new developers and
designers, etc.

With all the activity, this seems like the right moment to start to
figure this out. All of us who have an interest in the OSMTM should
meet soon. What I propose is that we gather at the next Tech Working
Group meeting, and once other business has been concluded, we continue
into an OSMTM agenda.

On the agenda would be

* The current development of V2 (I will send another email later today
detailing where things are at)
* The design and developer CU Boulder student initiative
* Defining a software management process for the OSMTM (ie
communication, handling of bug/feature requests, deployment process,
documentation, onboarding, etc)

I believe the next HOT Tech WG will be on Monday, May 5, at 17:00 UTC,
on #hot IRC. (Drazen please correct me if that's wrong).

Hopefully that works for most of us. Let me know directly if timing is an issue.
