Hi all.

I've written up the minutes for the last IRC meeting we had. The wiki
page is https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2009-04-05

The minutes are as follows:

A few items were discussed at the belated IRC meeting

    * Ubuntu Ireland press release team. Discussed some of the ideas
from the mailing list when it was first raised. czajkowski suggested
using the wiki to create a press release about oss events (ossbarcamp,
jaunty release party). Shane_Fagan expressed an interest in doing that
    * theirishpenguin is thinking of setting up a site listing companies
that use ubuntu or floss software

      ebel mentioned the OddJob page, for little tasks that would
benefit the ubuntu-ie website / community, including adding spam
protection to the comments on ubuntu-ie.org. ebel has promised to buy a
pint to the person who sets it up. Shane_Fagan had a look.
    * czajkowski reminded people about the Ubuntu Code of Conduct, in
order to be sure the IRC channel remains a friendly and welcoming place

      Mean-Machine brought up the release party for the next version of
ubuntu. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2009-04-05#preview
more info. There are some tshirts available for prizes. An ubuntu
releated pub quiz was suggested.

      czajkowski mentioned that some of the people running freenode are
holding a geek picknic ("geeknic") in dublin in the summer.
    * ebel metioned the Irish translation of ubuntu, and floated the
idea of a translation jam, to do a practice session on ubuntu translation

      Mean-Machine suggested some wiki spring cleaning and pointed
people to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/Toolbox/Wiki/Menu
    * Another OSSBarCamp was suggested, and some tentative thoughts on
software freedom day 2009

see the wiki page above for the full logs

The next IRC meeting will be on Sunday 3rd of May at 9pm Irish time. The
