== Agenda ==

Project Status Review]

 * Mamarok
 * maco
 * Myrtti
 * dinda

== Proceedings ==

 * Opened the meeting presenting the agenda. The current status of the
project is "existing":
  * The mailing list is around and activity trickles in, this channel
is here and used *often* for little rants and discussions about the
community, when women stop by for direction, we're here to provide it
  * We provides a place to "vent" if necessary, and have used the list
and IRC channel to coordinate meet-ups
  * The channel is also a very friendly, comfortable place for folks
to congregate, which makes it an attractive place
  * Many of the women involved currently are too busy with their
respective projects to contribute further to the project, but if we
did have time...

 * Project proposals
  * More encouragement of women to speak at events and being public
   * Help match conferences and speakers
   * Encourage women to post to planets (first UW, then maybe their
loco team, finally the official planet!)
   * Proposed action: semi-annual reminders to the list about our
resources (including offers to review slides, conference talk proposal
submissions) and encourage newcomers
  * "Women Behind Ubuntu" interview series
   * This doesn't require a huge time commitment from our volunteers,
and may be very useful, Mamarok volunteered to head up effort
   * Decided that our [http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/FullCircleMagazine
Full Circle Magazine Initiative] will be used to get these out
   * Will also post/link them all to our wiki
  * Website revitalization
   * Would be nice, but current site is functional, not a priority

 * Wiki issues
  * Has a broken login and password retrievals are not working (they
are sent, but in some kind of useless hash form)
  * Work-around for broken login page, use this link instead:
  * maco has submitted an RT ticket
