Greetings everyone in the Ubuntu community!
This week the Community Council meeting brought us news from the plains
of IRC, the hills of the wiki and the seas of the members.
* IRC operators
Brian Burger suggested that #ubuntu needs more operators to increase
global coverage. Dennis Kaarsemaker suggested Paul O'Malley and Brian
Burger. Both suggestions were accepted by the Community Council.
Personal note: we still need some coverage in east Asia and
Australia. Poke me (Seveas on Freenode) if you know possible
* Wiki licensing
The people who paid attention to my earlier mails will remember that
there has been some discussion about licensing the wiki content.
Matthew East informed us that he finished writing the E-mail which
will be sent out to all wiki editors. After proofreading by, Colin,
Watson, and examination by other attendants, Matthew was given the
green light to coordinate further actions.
The BetterWikiDocs specification is still not finished. There was
some more discussion about it during the meeting but no decision has
been reached and the discussion will be continued via more
appropriate channels. There is a possibility that when the spec is
finished, a separate server will be made available. But pending the
completion of the spec no decision was made here.
* New members
Venkat "robotgeek" Raghaven has been active on IRC, in Kubuntu and on
the wiki and the docteam. This resulted in quite an impressive
cheerleading squad. The community council was impressed by both the
squad and the work, therefore robotgeek can now call himself a member.
Timo "tepsipakki" Aaltonen had an even better cheerleading squad: the
CC members already knew him and worked with him. Needless to say that
he has been approved as member of the ever growing Ubuntu community.
Sarah "Hobbsee" Hobbs has been active in the Kubuntu team and on the
#kubuntu IRC channels and is planning to dive into packaging. She has
been less active than the other two candidates but did more than
enough to qualify as a sustained and significant contribution.
Welcome aboard Venkat, Timo and Sarah!
* Reaching the Community Council
The members of the Community Council can now be reached via
community-council AT lists.ubuntu.com. The archives to this list are
private, and the only subscribers are the members of the council
(Mark Shuttleworth, Benjamin Hill, Colin Watson and James Troup).
This is the mail address to use when you want to contact the council
about sensitive matters. Don't abuse this address for other subjects.
The next meeting will be at March 7, 12:00 UTC
