16:31 a-ritwik Nice
16:32 walterbender the most important thing everyone needs to do is communicate -- student to mentor and to the community
16:32 ibiam has quit IRC
16:32 walterbender We'll have these group meetings every week, which are logged
16:32 and we will use the sugar-devel mailing list for our communication
16:32 divyanshu walterbender: are mentors allow to do sprint review with students per week via hangouts/skype?
16:33 walterbender there is little need for private conversations in FOSS projects so please use the community list whenever possible
16:34 divyanshu, you can communicate with the students in whatever way is expedient as long as you ensure there is a community-accessible summary so we can all follow the progress
16:34 divyanshu walterbender: or what we can do is share Google Calendar with all the Mentors and Admins and can create an event there which others mentors can also join that will also ensure public communication.
16:34 walterbender divyanshu, OK
16:35 divyanshu Sure
16:35 walterbender also, all of the students will be maintaining blogs
16:35 I've begun a list of the blogs in the wiki
