We have a project meeting once a week, normally on Mondays at 10 AM Norwegian time. The meeting includes also members from the Sámi Disambiguation project - at least Trond Trosterud as the project lead - to ease communication and coordination between the two projects.
The memos from the meetings are available in the shared area. The memos are written in a Wiki format supported by Forrest, allowing a near-text memo combined with instant publishing. We also have written an internal jspwiki howto.
The meetings are held as Internet-based video conferences using iChat (included with MacOS X, and allows 4-way video-conferencing and 10-way audio chats; most modern Macs have built-in web cameras). Meeting memos are taken collaboratively using SubEthaEdit (version 2.2 is free, but SubEthaEdit is worth paying for). Thus, setting up a meeting is a breeze, and does not need to involve any extra costs beyond the computers.
There will be gatherings and workshops from time to time. No exact timetable or frequency of such meetings are defined, they will be held according to need.
The project manager will make a summary report for the head of the language section at the Sámi Parliament each month. The reports are available in a separate section on these pages. The reports are written in Norwegian.

The steering committee is meeting every half a year, and a summary report of the project status will be made by the project manager well in advance of each meeting. The reports will be available here as they are made.
