        Summary of the December 9, 2007 meeting

johnc4510 called the meeting to order at 9:02 PM

There were no new members.

There were no announcements.

As our first order of business, we had talked some last week about an
install fest ( https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoRunningInstallfests).
johnc4510 had done some research since then, and began to feel that we
would be unable to do one alone, due to our lack of experience and
knowledge. He proposed that we work with local LUGs who did have such
experience. This would have the advantage of getting the LUGs involved
with us as well as an install fest advocating for Ubuntu. This
suggestion was warmly received. johnc4510 will put out some feelers
among the LUGs, to see who would be willing to help, and to aim toward
an install fest in February or March. He will also post this to the Team
mailing list, in order to generate further interest and ideas.

The next order of business was the  Education Committee
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Teams/Education>. johnc4510 and
tyche could use some help with listing useful programs. The basic
programs for Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon have been listed on the
appropriate pages, and they are looking for applications that people
find useful, and are listed in the repositories. These may also include
such things as Envy that have been developed to help users install
various device drivers and codecs. A discussion with SloggerKhan
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SloggerKhan> followed the request that focused
on the type of information needed by the Education Committee. It was
determined that what was needed was:


      The name of the application.


      The home-page URL of the application.


      A brief description of the application.


      The type of application that it is.

Any help that one would like to give would be appreciated. Send emails
to  johnc4510-cox at ubuntu.com <mailto:johnc4510-cox at ubuntu.com> or 
tyche at cox.net <mailto:tyche at cox.net>. Don't worry about formatting, they
can handle that when they get the information.

The next order of business was the Team server. johnc4510 put up the
link to the home page ( for anyone who hasn't seen
it yet. enigmastrat has done the graphic and HTML coding, and johnc4510
has worked on the content, but he's looking for further information and

The meeting was then opened up to general discussion. tyche mentioned
that people see the [Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter - 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter/Issue69 Ubuntu Weekley
Newsletter]. In particular, there are 3 Ubuntu evaluation videos that
show Ubuntu installation from the viewpoint of a new user. He then added
that aside from the fact that johnc4510_ worked his fingers to the bone
reviewing them, they are very good videos. johnc4510 commented that he
might even link them from the server page.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:36 PM
