Good afternoon everyone.
For your information here are the minutes from the recent UKTeam ( now
formally approved ) held on the evening of 19th December 2006. It was
chaired , in my absence , by Seeker` ( Chris ) and a complete log of the
conversation is avialable on line at :
The minutes are as follows.
Screencast project (part 1) It was decided that the UKTeam should
continue producing Screencasts, and that an attempt should be made to
distribute them to the wider community. It was agreed that NikButler
should liase with the LoCo Team to determine whether there are currently
any efforts in any other LoCos to provide Screencasts in different
Charities NikButler was not present to update us on the status of the
action agreed on at the last meeting. There was some discussion about
which charities should be chosen, with several suggestions including
NSPCC, BIBIC, the EFF and the FSF. It was also suggested that we should
focus on open source based charities. It was decided that the type of
charity, and specific choices, should be discussed further on the
mailing lists or wiki
The Role of Ubuntu-uk.org It was decided that the Ubuntu-uk.org site
should contain finalised and polished copies of wiki articles (i.e. a
snapshot of the wiki page) to try and give a more professional
appearance. A process for adding pages to Ubuntu-uk.org needs to be
defined at a later date.
How we got involved in FOSS Members should try to include a section on
how they got involved in the FOSS community on their wiki page. A new
wiki page should be created that contains links to the relevant section
in each members wiki to provide newcomers with an idea of what paths are
open to them.
Screencast project (part 2) After AlanPope joined the meeting it was
decided to revisit the topic of Screencasts. The consensus was that more
people should be involved with creating screencasts, but people did not
know how. AlanPope volunteered to write a HOWTO and make a screencast of
"How to make a screencast". MatthewEast suggested that the screencasts
should somehow be linked to the Ubuntu documentation project (see
timestamp [23:22:01] in the IRC log), and volunteered to speak to the
relevant groups to see how this could be done.
Ubuntu-uk pastebin The idea to set up an ubuntu-uk pastebin was rejected
on the grounds that it would probably not get enough use to make it
worth it. MatthewEast will chase up information about a possible
EDM179 It was agreed that we should discuss how to follow up a request
to sign this EDM at the next TeamUK meeting.
Mentoring Due to a lack of time, the possibility of setting up a
mentoring scheme will be added to the agenda for the next meeting
The meeting concluded with the agreement that the next meeting would be
held on 9th January 2007 at 2130 GMT.
Again Id like to say thank you to everyone who turned up and continue
to be involved in the activities of the UKTeam.
