Council application – weekly report #3

Last week I:

  • Wrote Supybot plugin that regularly fetches JSON data from given location. Then it checks timestamp, if timestam is newer then previous it sends message to listed users.
  • Application now tracks slaking properly – it marks participation after meeting (council members who voted at least once are present). Then it calculates “slacking status” for current council members based on council term start date and participations.

For short description of project and sources, read this.

    You might want to handle slacking differently. It should count as slacking if people show up 45 minutes late, too. I’d recommend having the bot handle a roll call during the first 5 minutes, and anyone failing to speak during that time is slacked.
