    33= I. Brief Overview =
    4 We had a really productive work weekend 12/12-12/13. We did tons of work on pricing and building about 80% of the framework for translations. We also added helping hand info and a way for people to apply for scholarships. We also added placeholder pages for the reservation start page and the final landing page but those are definitely incomplete. Basically we feel everything is in place even though we know there are going to be text additions/modifications, translations, and layout tweaks.
     4The forms are in near completion, especially in terms of content. We do not plan on adding anything else to the forms unless it is explicitly mentioned below. We still plan on doing a round of layout tweaks this weekend and plan to do a soft launch (i.e. everything in place on the live servers, but not announced to the world) beginning of next week. The announcement to the world will not happen until online session proposals are ready, which will be the following week (1/18-1/24).

    8 = II. Major Concerns =
     8= II. Incompleted Items =
    99=== A. Payment Processor ===
    10 1. We need to figure out which payment processor to use. The payment processor is the mechanism that takes online credit card payments. We tried Google's payment processor this weekend and had some concerns. We would like to evaluate other processors - particularly from the perspective of getting the best deal. The software we are using supports many different ones (see:  http://ict.ussf2010.org/wiki/CiviCRM). We would appreciate some help from the Resource Mob or Finance in making these decisions as they have financial implications.
     101. Jamie is in the process of working with Praxis to get Paypal switched over from Project South to Praxis and get our account to be able to handle embedded payments. (i.e. the payment information will be included on the forms rather than forcing the user to go to a external site.
    1111
    12 2. We are not sure if we can embed this in the form
    13 
    14 === B. Getting Signoff on all of the elements on the registration pages  ===
    15 1. While layout tweaks can happen all the way up to launch, adding new fields cannot happen late in the process as they will require approval and translation. So we really need to make sure we have consensus on everything being there that needs to be there.
    16  a. Individual Registration Page (see [http://ict.ussf2010.org/attachment/wiki/RegistrationCurrentStatus/reg_additional.jpg screen grab]) https://community.ussf2010.org/en/civicrm/event/register?id=4&reset=1&ussf_regtype=ind
    17 
    18  b. Organization Registration Page (see [http://ict.ussf2010.org/attachment/wiki/RegistrationCurrentStatus/reg_org.jpg screen grab]) https://community.ussf2010.org/en/civicrm/event/register?id=4&reset=1&ussf_regtype=org
    19 
    20  c. Additional Participants Pages (see [http://ict.ussf2010.org/attachment/wiki/RegistrationCurrentStatus/reg_additional1.jpg screen grab one] and [http://ict.ussf2010.org/attachment/wiki/RegistrationCurrentStatus/reg_additional2.jpg two])
    21 
    22 === C. Getting text finalized. This will need to be done in all languages for all the pages. ===
    23 
    24 1. Reservation Start Page (see [http://ict.ussf2010.org/attachment/wiki/RegistrationCurrentStatus/reg_start.jpg screen grab]) https://community.ussf2010.org/registration
     12The long term plan however is to find a payment processor better than Paypal, politically and financially. The Finance committee with Jamie's help can hopefully find us one relatively soon, but will not be in place when registration first goes live.
    2513
    2614
     15=== B. Technical Support   ===
     161. We need to get a support email address set up and a way to handle support requests. This shouldn't be too difficult a task however we would like to create a more robust solution to be able to track help requests and make sure that they are being handled.
     17
     182. The online phone support is also a desire, but beyond our capability right now. We need to talk about this again once we go live and announce it to the world.

    5626
    5727=== D. Translations ===
    58281. Spanish
    59  a. Once text is finalized, all of the text needs to be entered into a spreadsheet and passed off to translators, as long as we have translators we are good to go
     29 a. We have passed all of the text off to the translation team. We will not go live until we get all of this and get it into the system.
    60302. Arabic
    61   a. since Arabic is a left to right language this might have major technical implications. We need to do outreach to Arabic Web Usability experts. We also need to make sure translators know how to get arabic text into a format a web browser can read.
     31  a. Arabic will not be part of the inital Launch. Getting this in place will be difficult since Arabic is a left to right language this might have major technical implications. We need to do outreach to Arabic Web Usability experts. We also need to make sure translators know how to get arabic text into a format a web browser can read.
    6232
    63 === E. Support ===
    64 1. Online
    65   a. we need to have a team of people ready to reply to online registration requests, either through a web form or email
    66 2. Telephone
    67   a. This is a tricky piece as it requires both a phone line and volunteers. There is a potential technical piece that might allow a number for the public to call that could forward to volunteers' phone number who have registered to do a help line shift. This may not be able to be put into place until mid to late january though.
    6833
    69 === F. Scholarship Requests ===
    70 1. We have not yet implemented any of the recommendations from the Scholarship call that happened.

     34=== E. Back End Work for getting accounts set up and ready for session proposals ===
     351. This is mostly back end work that ICT is handling. We are gettign really close to getting this done.
     36 
     37=== F. Ability for organizations to go back and add more registrants/add names to registratants/change registrants ===
     381. This will be put into place in a later phase, i anticipate this to be in February.
    7339
    74 === G. Back End Work for getting accounts set up and ready for session proposals ===
    75 1. This is mostly back end work that ICT is handling. We are also talking with the Programming Sub group to get this nailed down
    76  
    77 = III. Timelines =
    78 1. We are still working toward an early january launch. We really need all the above resolved soon though so we can finish the implementation
    79 
    80 = IV. Next Meeting =
