Dear Osmocom community,

as the pandemic continues and physical meetings are out of the question
for the forseeable future, it would be a good idea to have a periodic
virtual online meeting of the interested Osmocom community.

I was thinking of a format where we would serve two major purposes:

1) technical talks about osmocom relevant topics - ideally
   current/recent developments
   * can be pre-recorded to avoid any problems with technical setup,
     streaming, ...
   * should ideally have a Q+A session at their initial "airing" during
     one OsmoDevCall

2) unstructured solicited social event (USSE)
   * random chat in audio (optionally video)
   * not recorded, obviously

The recording of the technical presentation should then be permanently
made available (like the presentations of our prior OsmoCon /

Not every OsmoDevCall would neccessarily need the two parts, but I think
it would be great if we can make that happen.  We could also have e.g. a
two-weekly schedule for the USSE and a monthly schedule for the
technical presentation.

We'd need somebody to volunteer to "manage" the "broadcast" side of
this, preferably somebody with at least some prior exposure to online
events (like the c3voc).

I'm using to collect a tentative list
of topics.  Feel free to add your ideas there, as well as any comment/
feedback you may have.
