        Summary of the November 4, 2007 meeting

Johnc4510 called the meeting to order at 9:03 PM with, “Hi all and
welcome to our team meeting, lets get started”

Our usual first order of business was new members. We had one
oldtimer-newcomer. NorahAura <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NorahAura> had
joined the team shortly after it had formed, but this was the first time
that she'd made it into #ubuntu-arizona for a meeting. She has always
been interested in FOSS, but wasn't completely satisfied with the
Desktop solutions until this year. She first became aware of Ubuntu a
couple of years ago, tried the live cd, but wasn't too impressed. She
tried it again early this year and was very pleased. She built an
ubuntu-only pc in April of this year, have upgraded to Fiesty, then
Gusty. [Ed. Note: This would be about the time she joined the Team.] We
welcome NorahAura <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NorahAura> to the Team, and
invite her to join us in the channel any time.

Next order of business was the Education Committee. br24 wasn't
available to make a report, though johnc4510 mentioned that tyche and
jsonders have been feeding new info to him for the Ed team page.

Next was the Server Team. johnc4510 has recruited NorahAura
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NorahAura> and enigmastrat to work with
slofgren on the server team. Since NorahAura
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NorahAura> and enigmastrat were both at the
meeting, johnc4510 felt it was a good time to talk about what we want on
the main server page. Various things were suggested, including: Team
logo and slogan, links like the team wiki page: 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam and ubuntu forum link: 
http://ubuntuforums.org/index.php, and a table of contents or index of
the pages. The purpose of the main page was also questioned. Various
proposals were suggested including: support and advertisement of the
Team, as well as links to lead people into other areas, like membership,
education and the LUGS in the state. Oh, and of course the Newsletter
page. It was suggested that it be something like a launchpad/portal for
the Team. Ways to design the page were also discussed, such as using
css, javascript, and/or php. enigmastrat has offered the Team space on a
server of his for use either for the Team site, or as a playground to be
able to develop our skills. Some discussion was also made of using Java,
but there was also the idea of keeping the main page as simple as
possible. johnc4510 suggested that he would like to see the Arizona Team
template different from the Ubuntu template. He felt it should reflect
the State of Arizona. johnc4510 said that he would like the team page to
have some kind of theme or picture representative of the state, such as
the Grand Canyon or Sedona, or whatever. Tyche offered the Team any of
the photos he'd taken on a trip to Red Rocks (Sedona), Arizona.
enigmastrat suggested that he would like to make some changes to a
design he had posted (see: 
Other additional suggestions were made about where to add the Team logo
and slogan, and to lose the vine decoration in the design. The question
was also raised as to whether to put the design under the Creative
Commons Copyright License. Further ideas were suggested for how to
modify the design, and enigmastrat offered to make the changes and post
them to the Arizona Team forum for suggestions and approval. To add your
comments, suggestions and constructive criticism, please see: 

The meeting was adjourned at 9:59 PM with thanks to all who offered
suggestions and help.
