Dear NEST Users & Developers!
I would like to invite you to our next fortnightly Open NEST Developer
Video Conference, today
Monday 1 March, 11.30-12.30 CET (UTC+1).
As usual, in the Project team round, a contact person of each team will
give a short statement summarizing ongoing work in the team and
cross-cutting points that need discussion among the teams. The remainder
of the meeting we would go into a more in-depth discussion of topics
that came up on the mailing list or that are suggested by the teams.
Today this would for example be a discussion about changing the minimum
required Python version.
