Hi all!

The agenda from the last meeting had the Mentoring Program on it.  We
did not get to this item therefore I am bringing it to the Mailing
List and the Forums for discussion before the next meeting in 2 weeks
(March 2, 2010 @2100 UTC in #ubuntu-women-project). Thanks Vid for
adding this!

The topic is listed on the agenda as:

Reviving the Mentoring program. Why? Ubuntu has many training programs
and yet some folks forget that its sometimes harder to ask silly
questions and learn with a room full of strangers on irc. Some points
to consider:

    * The focus should be on women being encouraged and getting
one-one mentoring for any technical task of her choice (sometimes this
choice can be difficult and needs advice)

The following in link is to the Website and Ubuntu Women Mentoring
Program as it looks now.  http://www.ubuntu-women.org/mentoring.html
As listed above we need to talk a look at this program and see how we
as a team can breath some new life and momentum into this Program.
Please take a moment and think about how this can be accomplished.

Thanks Again Everyone in advance for taking time to helping revive
this mentoring program!

only want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.
