Ahmed, everything below sounds great... once there is an actual release.

Ensemble team.. I know you've set goals for Budapest. How about one of them
being to release a version where we don't expect the fundamental formula
format to change. I'm already feeling the despair of having to rewrite all
of Principia to work with the new hook semantics. We can't ask people
to start writing formulas if thats going to happen again.

Until there's a release, its just a research project.

> Hi Ensemble masters,
> 
> Got a couple of points to discuss
> 
> 1- Wrt community communication channels, may I suggest the following (if 
> it's not already the case)
> #ubuntu-ensemble => For Developer discussions, core ensemble only
> #ubuntu-cloud => For Ensemble "user" support and "formula writer" 
> support and discussion
> And the same for mailing lists (Core Dev on Ensemble 
> <https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ensemble> and User/Formula 
> discussion on Ubuntu-Cloud 
> <https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-cloud>)
> Rationale:
> ===
> - Anyone interested in Ensemble, is by definition interested/using 
> "cloud" since that's the primary (and currently only) deployment target
> - Ensemble is at the core of Ubuntu's cloud offering, thus anyone 
> interested in cloud, would most likely benefit from exposure to ensemble
> - I'd like to avoid fragmenting a young community, and leverage Ubuntu's 
> current reach from "ubuntucloud" channels (Twitter 
> <https://twitter.com/#%21/ubuntucloud> with 2.3k followers, and Facebook 
> <https://www.facebook.com/ubuntucloud> with 1k 
> followers<https://twitter.com/#%21/ubuntucloud> and the ubuntu-cloud 
> list with 1.1k subscribers)
> 
> 2- I'd like to request holding a weekly irc meeting for the ensemble 
> team with the purpose of updating the community on the status of 
> ensemble (development done last week, TODO items of next week). The 
> meeting would serve to keep interested community members on-top of 
> happenings in the ensemble space, without having to read every commit 
> ..etc. As well as be a chance for project members to discuss their 
> ensemble formulas, how they can contribute to various aspects of the 
> project ..etc. I would like to propose the meeting be held in 
> #ubuntu-cloud every Wed at 18:00-UTC. The reason for choosing that time, 
> is I had already been running a weekly cloud meeting at the time, but it 
> could really benefit from more content and ensemble would be great for 
> that. If you guys would like to change the time though, it's not a problem
> 
> Please throw +1s -1s or rotten tomatoes :)
> Regards
