There are more than just male & female, Mr. & Mrs. Dealing with a multitude of different genders, identities and pronouns can be learned in everyday practice, but how do you implement it in your software? How to encode it in the database, generate text, deal with localization, asking the users for their pronouns? This will be an open discussion which might also lead to some ad-hoc specificaiton or implementation, possibly even a new open-source project.

GitHub Project Space and Wiki

We had two very inspiring meetups in which we sketched out a vision of what this could lead to. For further collaboration, we created a project at GitHub: https://github.com/lenaschimmel/gendentity

Right now, we only use the wiki over there to write down ideas and resources and track issues.

Mailing List

We created a mailing list, which you can subscribe to by clicking this link. All further communication might then take place on that mailing list.

If you attended the first meeting, maybe we already collected your mail address to add it to the mailing list. Currently I have difficulties with reaching the person who has that list, so even if you already wrote your address down, maybe it's better to manually subscribe now.
