Great Meeting on Thursday! For those who could not attend included is
the link to the agenda, notes and logs.
It was determined that a vote on the IRC Purpose and Logging would be
voted upon from January 28th, 2010 through February 4, 2010. The next
issue was who votes? The Ubuntu Women Team - who makes up the Ubuntu
Women Team? Since the Ubuntu Women Project Team Members use all or
some combination of IRC, Mailing List and Forums, and we needed to
identify who the team members were, it was decided that Launchpad
would be the list used to identify the team. If you are a member of
the Ubuntu Women team and are not registered in Launchpad please do so
before January 26th, 2010. You must join the team before January
26th, 2010 in order to vote on the IRC Purpose and Logging Options.
The vote will be a ranking vote. Consisting of the 4 options
discussed at the meeting. Survey Monkey or Condorcet will be used and
sent to the email address of the team members in Launchpad. Please
make sure your email address is up to date.
It was suggested that for future voting we need to set a minimum
amount of time a team member must be on the team in order to vote.
One suggestion was once a month. This would keep people from joining
the team just to skew the vote. Let's hear your suggestions, please.
Once the minimum time a member must be on the team is set, then the
guidelines for team voting/elections will be in place. I will NOT be
voting. I will vote only if the team is deadlocked. If anyone
disagrees please let me know.
Below is a link to a meeting survey - Please take a moment to fill it
out, as it will decide the next meeting date and time. The survey
will close on Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 2400 UTC/1900 EST.

There are lots of Linux users who don't care how the kernel works, but
only want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.
