Dear Osmocom community,
as the pandemic continues and physical meetings are out of the question

* should ideally have a Q+A session at their initial "airing" during
2) unstructured solicited social event (USSE)

two-weekly schedule for the USSE and a monthly schedule for the
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 https://osmocom.org/issues/4928 to collect a tentative list
of topics. Feel free to add your ideas there, as well as any comment/
feedback you may have.
