Any appetite for an Ubuntu Ireland Team Reboot?

Back in August and September we had a mailing list discussion regarding
the state of the Irish LoCo. The details of what was said can be found
in our mailing list archive at:
There appeared to be a general desire to keep the LoCo going. However,
it is clear that activity has dramatically decreased from late 2011 and
Personally, I was re-energised by attending Skycon back in October and I
have been pondering what could we do next.
I'd like to put forward a few ideas in this mail that were suggested
earlier, both on the mailing list and during face to face discussions.
1) Quarterly meetings to get us started again. Timing is important here
to fit in nicely with the release cycle. I'd suggest meetings in
February, May, August and November. The February and August meetings
should discuss LoCo activities concerning the next release.
2) I think we should keep the release parties going. Try different
things. Even if it is just the few regulars the release is a great
excuse for a social meetup.
3) What do we do with Global Jams? Not being in any way geeky I don't
know about this one, I certainly can't drive it. I would like to see
them continuing but only if we are participating in a real way. At a
minimum I think we should participate in every Jam before an LTS
release. I would like us to plan much better for the Global Jams and
have more structure to the days.
4) Other social activities. As people see opportunities just make
suggestions on the mailing list.
5) Getting the word out. By in large we have lost contact with many of
the colleges around the country. Are there people active in College life
subscribed to this mailing list?
6) Reapproval (due by 30 Jun 13). This one is purely my personal
opinion. Let it lapse. I don't think we have done enough to justify
it. Lets just see if we can build momentum again and consider going for
reapproval at a later stage.
There are likely many other items and ideas to consider but I think the
above 6 are high on the priority list.
So what do you think? Is there any appetite for an Ubuntu Ireland Team
Reboot? What other ideas/concerns do you have?
