Tasks: We are trying out a “buddy” system, where everyone with a task has a partner who checks in whether they have done the task or helps them do it. This is shown below with a “/”, e.g. “TASK Elsa/Ivan” means “Elsa will look into it, Ivan will follow it up eventually”.
If you see a task without a name behind it, or one with names that interests you too, or a trailing “/” you are very welcome to pipe up (firstname.lastname@example.org) and lend a hand.
