Monitor …
  nero_ will coordinate the booth : we need at least 3 volunteers to

2. Promotion
  a. Adding commercial links to the website
We already discussed the topic, see draft in the wiki 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BelgianTeam/Website/Commercial_links-draft for 
Before to launch the project and contacting companies, we are waiting 
action by JanC for the activation of an email address 
"contact op ubuntu-be.org", as single point of entry/contact between 
commercial companies and Ubuntu-be: mail will be transferred to 
interested members of Ubuntu-be.

  b. t-shirts for Ubuntu-be
We are waiting for other new design proposals. See 

3. Update Wiki Belgian Team - “How to contact Ubuntu-be Team ?”
  a. As communication channel, we use regularly IRC #ubuntu-be and the 
mailing list, and sometimes micro-blogging - identi.ca (!ubuntube). To 
reflect the actual situation, we have to delete "Social networks 
(Facebook and Orkut) and Twitter (Ubuntu-be Twibe)".

  b. Facebook : does Ubuntu-be have to be present on Facebook, as 
Ubuntu.com already is ? An exchange can be started through the mailing list.

  c. Generally Ubuntu-be is missing a single point of entry for 
mail/questions from outside (Ubuntu-be), in fact the same as for 
"commercial links". Use of the mailing list is not good as too impersonal.

4. Support points map status : nothing new, we are waiting for 
mongolito404 availability.

5. Next IRC meeting on 25/08/2010 at 21 h.
