Summary of the November 25, 2007 meeting
johnc4510 called the meeting together at 9:02 PM. He expressed his hope
that everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday.
New member, mindrape, was introduced to the Team. He's been a linux user
for over 10 years... Ubuntu for the past 2-ish years. He is in the
central Phoenix area, near the airport. mindrape was welcomed to the Team.
Next order of business was the Team Server main page
(http://ubuntuaz.selfip.com/). Due to the confusion of the holiday,
enigmastrat hasn't updated the graphics for the main page yet. johnc4510
has managed to revise the text, and added/changed the links in the
pull-down menus. He also moved it to the main area, so it would be the
first thing seen. tyche asked about setting up some information on what
had been done and what needed to be done for the Team to be formally
approved. johnc4510 said that he hadn't planned on doing that on the
main page, but was going to work on updating the wiki. johnc4510 asked
about adding some web buttons. Things like Gnome, Firefox, Thunderbird,
xfce, OpenOffice <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OpenOffice>.org, and Apache
were suggested. These linked graphics might have to be "Gimped" to make
them the same size relative to eachother, but this was not seen as a
The next order of business was the Education Committee page
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Teams/Education). johnc4510 and
tyche didn't work on it this week, due in part to the amount of time
spent on it last week and the need for feedback from the rest of the
team. The subject of email support was brought up, and tyche asked how
other teams handled it. johnc4510 invited vorian in to discuss how Ohio
Team managed their support. vorian related that after the support was
set up, there weren't any requests, and the team lost focus. It was
further discussed that Team members could always jump on IRC to get help
from other Team members. But it appeared that outside users weren't
making requests, or were going to the forums. tyche suggested that he
look at how other teams provide support, or even if they supply support.
With that, the discussion was tabled for next week for further
information and discussion. johnc4510 asked enigmastrat to let him know
when the graphics for the server page were updated.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:41 PM.
