The chairman called the meeting to order after a quorum was obtained; members present at the start of the meeting were UAxDEATH, The Mittani, Meissa, Draco, White Tree, Killer2, Elise, and Trebor.
The first order of business was discussion of meeting format. Based on extensive Skype chat and forum discussions prior to the meeting (involving all mains and most of the alts), it was resolved to experiment with moving Proposal debate and voting to the CSM internal forum, with a one week deliberation period. The results of this process would then be published in the minutes.
The reasons for this change include:
* Extended period for discussion and debate.
* Provides CCP devs with an opportunity to provide feedback.
* Reduces length of official meetings, which given the broad TZ spread of the current CSM, are inconvenient to some.
Only one proposal was up for consideration during this meeting. It was already being debated on the internal forums, and it was resolved to terminate debate as of DT on 09-May so that it could be included in these minutes.
The CSM also resolved to test conducting some aspects of CSM meetings on Skype Voice, in particular NDA-related discussions.
The second and final order of business was discussion of CSM summit preparations and strategy. As most of this discussion revolved around NDA issues, it was discussed on Skype Voice.
Action points from this discussion:
* CSM members will divide up the work of developing position papers / bullet point lists for each meeting, including important questions CSM needs answers for.
* CSM members will cooperate to produce a "Top 10 UI Problems" list requested by CCP.
Proposals Discussed (1):Green Brackets for Assisting (CSM)
In the internal debate:
Two step made a suggestion about color-blind issues that may touch on an NDA issue; a note was made to ensure this suggestion was retained when the proposal went into the backlog, and a link to a CSM5 proposal that relates to general color-blind issues was added to the proposal.
Meissa suggested that this proposal was a subset of a needed overhaul of brackets in general.
Given the public support from CSM members in the original Assembly Hall thread, this was an uncontroversial proposal.
