Guide Session

Happening 2019-03-19. Jenny, Kajetan and Dan T. confirmed, Anton tentatively signed up

Minutes and Agendas

Must be better at organising where minutes are stored and the distinction between minutes and agendas. Two GitHub repositories for the minutes for the same organisation.


Specification written, volunteers needed to write it up. Anton volunteers to help with this.

SRO Domain seems like the suitable domain to have. Similar to Student Robitics' domain, but that is unused now.


Anton blocking people from completing tasks


Board production will be done by ourselves, manufacturing is too much money. Will happen first week after Easter.
