Topic:Funding for Craig Elder for running the weekly dev call including publishing agenda and minutes
Proposal type : administration
Description: Fund Craig Elder for running the weekly dev call including publishing the agenda and publishing notes taken during the meeting. The meetings tend to be 2 to 2.5hrs per week, 4 or 5 times per month.
Administration tasks including this one are important to keeping the team running smoothly but it is not something that we have an easy time finding volunteers to do - at least not consistently and for a long period of time. For this reason it is a good use of the ArduPilot funds.
Craig has been doing this task reliably for a long time without any funding, in Randy’s view, it’s time we start funding this effort.
Planned amount $$ (USD):$500/month for 1 year meaning a total of $6k USD.
