    • KohaCon18 - Does it make sense to open bidding now?
  • Actions from General IRC meeting 7 September 2016.
  • Discussion on idea about Marketing Group or Committee for spreading word about Koha (website design and content, press releases, whatever else this group can come up with)
    • A separate website just for marketing? To highlight features of Koha as well as selected libraries that use Koha, both big and small. Document some of the largest Koha libraries to combat the idea that Koha is just for small libraries. Document the setup in Turkey. Just a thought. --Magnus 01:52, 19 October 2016 (EDT)
      • Don't think a separate website is required. Happy to help (or lead) creating the promotional content required for the Koha Community website, as well as create a template for case studies. -- David Nind
  • Bugzilla vs Github/Gitlab. Are people happy with bugzilla? Is is up for discussion to consider some alternatives? User:Petter
  • Could we set up a 'Support provider registration' email list?


Mirko: I'm ill and might go to bed early. +1 for the release team as of 2. Nov 2016 10:30 UTC
