Hello everyone, here is the latest news from the CC. The last meeting
brought us new members and discussion about malone and the wiki.
* The Bugzilla -> Malone transition
Vincent Untz has raised some questions about the seemingly sudden
transition from Bugzilla to Malone. This transition however was
rather overdue than late and the problem lies in the lack of
communication about it. Vincent and Sebastien Bacher will work on
proposals to improve communation.
* Ubuntu Document Storage Facility
The forums people are collecting howtos on a separate wiki, called
the Ubuntu Document Storage Facility. Some concerns were raised about
duplicate work but it is very easy to copy good works onto the
official Ubuntu wiki when needed.
* Ubuntu wiki licensing
The french and german laws (and probably more countries are affected)
make it hard to use the CC:PD license for the Ubuntu wiki. The
wikimedia commons however has a suggestion, Benjamin Hill will check
it with a lawyer.
* New members

for the Ubuntu forums.
* Naaman Campbell has been creating good documentation, ducumenting
