EuroPython Plaza

We have chosen the name "Plaza" for our virtual plaza where all EuroPython workgroup members can discuss things which are relevant for everyone.

EuroPython Plaza Mailing List

Technically, this is a mailing list, to which all WG members are subscribed.

We will also post announcements for WG members to this list.

EuroPython Plaza Conference Calls

We will also have EuroPython Plaza meetings regularly to update everyone on where we are. At least the WG chairs or other representatives of the WGs should participate in these conference calls, but everyone is welcome to join.

  • TBD: The details are not yet worked out. Since we'll have a lot of people on the call, we'll have to mute most of them, so that only one person speaks at a time.

Workgroup Tools and Communications

  • All workgroups have a mailing list setup for communication and an email alias to this mailing list with Please see the WG pages for details.
  • For voting, we have setup a private Loomio group called EuroPython Workgroups.
    In order to get invited to this group and the subgroups relevant to you, please contact the Communications WG.

Wiki Conventions

To keep the wiki readable and usable, please follow some conventions when naming pages:

  • Please use ["Page names in quotes"] when possible, not the usual WikiPageName naming conventions. This results in more readable pages and enables automatic linking when using the page name on other pages. In the wysiwyg editor, you can achieve the same by entering "Page names in quotes" in the link URL dialog box.
  • Escape automatic wiki page links using !WikiPageName or remove the links using the wysiwyg editor.
  • Create sub pages for workgroups using slashes in the name, e.g. "Web WG/Website Hosting Setup".
