Did Sudo Room decide to close its doors along with the rest of Omni Commons, or was it a
How are the membership and Sudo Room frequenters doing during this crisis?
Are Sudo Room folks engaged in PPE/ventilator/respirator etc. production from home?
Is Sudo Mesh still operational?
Is there any plan in the works to reopen?
Is there any documentation of Sudo Room's decision making during COVID?
Such as meeting notes? I noticed there's nothing on the wiki for 2020.
Thanks so much for indulging me.
