Hi Everyone,

We just had our second Diversity and UDS meeting in
#ubuntu-women-project and I just wanted to summarize updates from the
previous meeting and actions gathered for this one.

Actions from the previous meeting and updates:

 * pleia2 and akgraner to flesh out mentoring process for reviewing
sponsorship applications.
  - pleia2 put together http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/UDS/Sponsorship and
sent it for review, AlanBell and Pendulum said it looked good. It will
now be merged into http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/UDS

 * jono to investigate reducing the 1000 char limit for sponsorship
applications in summit.ubuntu.com.
  - I passed this onto jcastro who filed
https://bugs.launchpad.net/summit/+bug/718794 and it is now fixed

 * jono to put together first cut of landing page for outreach campaign.
  - I put together http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/UDS and the team are
happy with the content.

Actions from today's meeting:

Here are the actions that we agreed upon today.

 * Outreach plan for next week
  * Monday:
