Mark Nielson, James "despite doodling that I could!" Green [but I should make it to gitpub with money --jkg]



  • Co-op: free, annoying customer service
  • Triodos: lots of fees, better customer service
  • Unity trust: better customer service, ability to give multiple users different levels of access, ability to set up two or three authorisation required to take an action

Questions: data export, multiple users, quality of on-line service

Unity trust - unanimous


ID - See

  • 2 factor ID is an option for users
  • ability to store ssh public keys which could be useful for email (and presumably other things)
  • also ability to extend the schema with arbitrary data
  • discussion about running the ID system as its own server, both for safety and ease of hosting

email - not much has happened

IRC - not much has happened. Feel free to point me at a box and I can set up ZNC on it. I'm not sure about Dockerising it or anything, so help there would be appreciated.

hosting - we currently have a £10 Hope on bytemark BigV

DNS server hosting - looking for comments from jkg

static hosting needs integrating with the ID setup found this site for potential hints for gh-pages functionality


Hackday on dockerising stuff

Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct seems fine, pick a day in the quiet week of the month
