Public agenda:

1. Discuss: jitsi/meeting tech followup & plan (Thorsten)

     + not using it today; it works with a small number of participants
     + breaks down horribly with geographically diverse participants and
 >5-6 people.
     + not an option / solving all problems.
     + not worth investing time in setting up a phone conference bridge

     + 'discord' being used by some (Bjoern)
         + using it as a Chrome app, also an Android app, packaged as a
         + native on OS/X & Windows.
         + https://discordapp.com/
     + ideally needs a phone dial-in.
     + Does talkyo have something ? (Michael)
     + Matrix / Riot - any experience ? (Eike)
         + https://riot.im/  https://matrix.org/
     + Working but not Open Source and costs money: BlueJeans (Eike)
         + https://www.bluejeans.com/
         + seen it in use as a 1:n streaming solution tha
     + OSI using hangouts increasingly (Simon)
         + Google use them; probability of removing SIP dial-in is slim.

     + Pirate party - mumble >100 participants (Bjoern)
         + also have a phone bridge
         + asked them about the details - but didn't get much back.
