@MrTango I won't be able to make the sprint due to work pressures and flight costs etc. I also am unlikely to be able to stay up till 2am tonight to join the call. I think I've given my input already on what I'd like to see sprinted on.
I am interested in joining remotely.
I think if there is a plan in place to ensure that each team has its own slack channel or gitter channel (or even irc channel), and these are easy to find, and all members of a team are available online there, then this would be ideal. Imagine at a sprint, where someone comes into the room late, they need the ability to walk over to the team working on what they want to contribute to, and start talking to whoever is the most available.
It's very frustrating to want to contribute, turn up and have no way to talk to the right people to find out how.
Please note, that a single hangout or channel is not enough.
