February 1, Developer bi-weekly videoconference

Dear GROMACS developers,

Since we had the GROMACS quarterly planning meeting last Wednesday, we will shift the GROMACS bi-weekly developer meeting ahead one week.

Thus, our next developer teleconference will be on February 1st, 17:00 Stockholm time.

So far, the agenda is:

  • Berk Hess: general issues (open bugs, CI, maintenance)
  • Berk Hess: GROMACS developers communication media
  • Majid Jafari: parameters for metal ions
  • Open slot

If there’s anything you wish to discuss, just let me or Berk know, or comment below and we’ll add you to one of the open slots!

Looking forward to fruitful discussions in February!

Dear GROMACS developers,
I, Majid Jafari, am a graduate student at Michigan State University. We, the Merz group, parametrized a new nonbonded model for metal ions (related paper). The parameters are currently available in AMBER. We have heard GROMACS users are interested in using these parameters but the parameters are not available in GROMACS. After talking to GROMACS developers, they suggested us to post our idea here and join the next GROMACS bi-weekly meeting so the developers who are interested in collaborating with us wouldn’t miss the meeting. Thank you!

Dear Majid,
I have added you to the agenda! See you at the meeting!

Thank you so much!

Just a reminder that our next developer meeting will take place tomorrow at 17:00 (Stockholm time)! We still have one open slot in the agenda, so please let us know if you have something additional to discuss! We also plan to discuss tools to enable better communication between the GROMACS team in Stockholm and external developers (chat, forum, etc.), so please think about which tools you would prefer!

See you tomorrow!

There was talk today about using https://gromacs.slack.com/

Will there be an invite link posted in the forum or something?

Can you not request to join?

By default, people need an invitation to join

Any existing member can at least request an invitation, though.

I’ve seen web interfaces for bots or something that apparently generate invitations, but I’ve never bothered to track down the code/app/plugin or whatever does that.

It seems possible to set up an invitation link (allows in up to 400 users, seems fine for initial influx. Not sure how that works re:spam bots)

OK, I can generate the invitation link, but since I have no idea how much of a spam risk there is, I won’t share it publicly, please DM me for the link (and feel free to share the link in private with other devs you know)!
