    1. tobiasz is Tobias Zeuch, developer at the KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany (tobiasz, 08:14:36)

  4. Profile "General" tab should have better options (https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1258067) (anzeljg) (anzeljg, 08:24:33)
    1. IDEA: move the "General" tab from "Profile" to the "Resume" as the fields apply there more readily. (anitsirk, 08:34:51)
    2. IDEA: Offer more fields and not only Occupation and Industry as these don't apply for everyone. However, since we'll always have people not needing fields, the admin should be able to hide certain fields that don't apply. (anitsirk, 08:35:36)
    3. when moving the "General" fields to the resume, they would be artefacts as they are now. they have to be selectable on individual basis, but grouped somehow at the same time - to be displayed together... (anitsirk, 08:45:27)

  5. Next meeting and chair (anzeljg, 08:48:01)
    1. the 31st Mahara Developer Meeting will take place on 27 March 2014 at 8:00 UTC: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=31st+Mahara+Developer+Meeting&iso=20140327T08 (anitsirk, 09:01:14)

  6. Any other business (anzeljg, 09:03:20)
    1. Feature freeze is in the first full week of February, 3-9 February 2014. See https://wiki.mahara.org/index.php/6MonthlyCycle (anitsirk, 09:04:10)
    2. the first mahara conference in the southern hemisphere will take place in Wellington on 19 and 20 March 2014 followed by a one-day hackfest. Mahara Hui welcomes everyone to New Zealand. Hopefully, some of you can make it. :-) (anitsirk, 09:07:04)
    3. https://maharahui.org.nz (anitsirk, 09:07:20)
    4. currently, accessibility is not great for editing and administration, but thankfully most of those issues were easy to fix and there are already patches merged for 1.9. (anitsirk, 09:11:09)
    5. mingard is working on some of the harder stuff (like getting a keyboard-accessible version of the drag-and-drop page editor working) at the moment so Mahara should be fully compliant with WCAG 2.0 level AA (and therefore the accessibility standards of most countries and administrations) in 1.9 (anitsirk, 09:12:10)
    6. accessibility will stay a continued focus and there will be information available on the wiki for developers to ensure that basic accessibility guidelines are followed when fixing bugs and creating new features (anitsirk, 09:14:56)
