It is that time of the month again: another report from the Community
Council. SPECIAL NOTE: If you want to attend the CC meetings, please
read the paragraph about rescheduling at the end.
* Maurico Hernandez introduced the chilean LoCoteam. The Chilean team
has been active in promoting Ubuntu and Edubuntu and are planning
install- and HowTo fests.
* Kevin Cole suggested the idea of using airport codes to refer to
regional locoteams instead of national (such as ubuntu-dca for
washington DC). This was considered too obscure and the suggestion
was made to simply use reginal codes as subdomains websites or
postfixes in mailing lists, such as ubuntu-us-texas at lists.ubuntu.com
* Julius Bloch and Armin Ronacher are two of the driving forces behind
Ubuntu DE, organizing booths at events, writing documentation,
providing lots of support. Both were welcomed aboard the ever filling
* Bhuvan has only been using Ubuntu for a few months, but immediately
started contributing to the documentation team. For this
contribution, which is still groing, he has been welcomed as Ubuntu
* Fábian Rodríguez has been promoting Ubuntu. From his wikipage
however, it was not clear when these contributions started. Combining
that with how hard it is in general to judge advocacy, the CC
suggested that Fabian will work together with Benjamin Hill to clear
up the confusion in the next two weeks.
* Mauricio Hernandez has been very active in Edubuntu and in promotion
in Chile, where he trys to push Ubuntu and especially Edubuntu as
hard as he can. He will be valuable new member, and will try to
make Ubuntu rock Latin America. Since Benjamin Hill had to leave
early, the voting is not yet complete but he will most likely be
accepted as member.
* Seb Payne has been approved oct. 25, but has been requested to give a
progress report 4 weeks after that (this meeting). He did not show up
and thus his membership will automatically end on Nov. 26. He will be
invited to the next meeting to try and renew his membership.
Currently the CC meetings are scheduled biweekly at tuesdays,
alternating between 14:00 UTC and 22:00 UTC. This schedule has proven to
be somewhat inconvenient for several parts of the world and rescheduling
has been suggested.
With 3 of the 4 CC members being located in London, there is a
constraint on the schedules, because the schedule needs to be reasonably
doable for them.
The next CC meeting will still be scheduled according to the current
schedule and tus on tuesday, december 7 at 14:00 UTC. We will discuss
rescheduling there, but I would welcome suggestions *before* that
meeting via e-mail to dennis at ubuntu.com to make an informed suggestion
on the schedule. I would also appreciate it if people who like to attend
these meetings send me the times they are available.
The meeting ended at 23:37 UTC.
