I totally agree this been an LTS release... We would love to have some CDs
here in 091 Labs, is always good to have some CDs to show to people. Most
of our members use some version or other of Ubuntu and we always try to
introduce new comers to Ubuntu.

I'm on with my final exams at the moment and I have one on Thursday morning
and I won't be able to make it to the meeting if it goes ahead but I will
try to have another member to join you.

Now that I'm at it, on the IRC meetings I find myself hard to motivate
myself to attend to them. I love Ubuntu and I use it everyday and I would
like to share it with other people and I find (the few times that I join
the IRC meeting) that there's very little I can do or participate,
specially from Galway.

I find this mailing list instead very quite... I don't know how many people
are subscripted to this mailing list but although people may not answer
they still read the emails (at least I do), I like to follow on what is
going on and I'm sure there's a lot of people in the same situation. I find
that if I don't attend the IRC meetings I don't really know what is going
on. I could go and to the IRC backup thread and see what was said on the
meeting but this is an extra step I never do. I don't even know where to
find it because I never bothered to follow up, but If more talk was in
mailing list I would follow up and even interact a bit more, perhaps a
minutes meeting on this mailing list may help people interact a bit more

Not sure if other people share the same thought but this was 2c anyway..

Regards, Carles
