[Ofa_boardplus] OFA Collaboration via Zoom

Before we started doing recordings in OFIWG we were pretty careful to poll the members as to whether there was any objection or not.  There was none.  Since the use of recordings in OFIWG has become institutionalized, we haven’t gone back and re-polled for objections.

In the case of OFIWG, the recordings are archived by Cisco, and links to them are contained in the written minutes of each meeting.  On the whole it works quite well, but there are some minor glitches.

Jason, thanks, these comments continue to be extremely helpful. When I was learning to use Zoom I tried the recording feature it was great. I know Paul and Sean use this for the OFIWG meetings and they value it.

I feel slightly uncomfortable stating this, but I believe there are those who prefer not to be recorded. I'm offering this as a gentle caution. I expect anyone who needs to will speak up on their own behalf.

Again, wonderful comments

thanks so much, Jim

One suggestion is that Zoom has a recording feature and provides
cloud storage for the recordings.

IMHO, the public working group meetings would be well served to have
an archive of public recordings. I would hope this would encourage
more participation as people who cannot make the meetings can still
review the calls.

I would have liked to have this capability for the recent Linux
maintainers call.

Overall, I feel that something like this is a sensible thing for the
OFA to do in terms of creating a neutral collaborative space.
