Discussion Spillover

  • space.sudo/music is down!

Need to do

  • Give existing sudoers ability to add pw's for new people. Jordan is working on adding commenting to the txt file that houses our list of pw's. Once this is done,
  • We currently have no way to track or report who pays, etc. Is this ok? If not, we need solutions.
  • If you want to work on membership management solutions, check out this repo:
  • A number of folks have signed up to be members but it's unclear whether they have had any follow-up or come by the space. we've updated the info on the page that confirms that someone completed the form completely to let people know that they should come to the space, but should we contact the folks who have already signed up?
