Meeting notes

Extra rent - discount on rent

  • A few months back, Entrakt issues a Corona discount to all members. Now Entrakt is claiming back the discount for those months.
  • When lockdown ended, we started paying the full rent again (despite no mail terminating the discount was received)
  • Entrakt is currently sending invoices to all tenants, reclaiming a part of the discounted rent.
  • Wouter will contact Entrakt to listen on what and how.

Working on the website

Extra moment: 18:00 - basic intro to GIT (version control, underlying system behind the website). Small introduction on how to add content to the website (Hugo) in 2 weeks (17/08). This way, everyone can add content.

Is there interest for a few sessions on tweaking/improving the site? We could learn the basics of Hugo and what an how to add/change features.

New location - status update

  • Forest: there is very much work and no certainty there is a place for us. We don’t think we can commit to that.
  • St Gillis: this location is reserved for artists. A requirement from the city is that there are no computers there.
