thank you for empasizing.
We just had our sitin and concluded, that we are out of focus and need to refocus in a planning meeting on next monday from 10:00 - 14:00.
let´s formulate an update personally for you:
what goes well:
"+" Chest formalities seem to be cleared, and we seem to have a time extension until the end of sept 2016. (payment of next installment still unclear)
"+" Wikibase (Taxonomy and Translation) is running, and there is currently some testing and bugfixing going on, to have it run propperly
"+" The community bucket can be fixated and communicated with 2000€ ("-" very little energy to run the process of proposals, technology for decision making, decision making, ....)
"+" ETL is taken on by James Lewis and an encouraged team
what does not go so well:
"-" development of the map viewer stagnated since about 2 weeks without clarity on the reason or how to contribute to resolve the blockages
"-" apparently weak ties / little bonding within the team
"-" a planned and budgeted "patterns"-workshop for 29. - 30. June is seemingly lost in communication
Guess, that would not make a community report, that anyone loves to share...
Hope and trust, that we get everything together next monday, and try to prepare well for it.
