11 I think that iCal is really our biggest stumbling block - whenever
12 anybody points out that there is no good FOSS group calendaring solution
13 available all the zealots point to a bunch of programs that can
14 read/write ical, neglecting the fact that these programs usually have no
15 collaborative capabilities whatsoever.
17 Personally I have no problems with leveraging Google tools, but only for
18 non-essential matters and for document creation. Final documents should
19 be placed on the website in an open format (preferably just as website
20 content). So, if QA wants to write out a set of policies and do it
21 using Google docs, that is fine, as long as devs aren't expected to use
22 Google docs to read the policies once they're ready to be followed.
24 I did link my g.o email to my gmail account, so anybody needing to share
25 a document or whatever with me should be able to do so in this way.
