Hi Nico,

Thank you for your feedback.

Duly noted, Yes and it's because we put in place all the new tools 
(hackmd, Zoom) and it's the holiday period. It's our first time with 
this format so please be understanding :)

The target for next time is to announce one week in advance (1st Wed of 
the Month).

We will make it very clear if the video is edited !

The anonymous attendance discussion should happen on this list.

My opinion if the community really want it and the tools allow it, we 
can try to live stream the meeting.
Would it be ok as a "read-only" way to attend ?

Please also keep in mind, that we don't have unlimited resources to 
organize a 1 hour Monthly meeting.

 From now on, yes, everything will be published in hackmd.io or on the 
blog post. Links can be found in the Agenda for previous minutes.

For previous agenda, I don't see a lot of value to rewrite them in md 
from the old .doc files.

In the future they will be organized by tags in hackmd, for easy access.
