21:13< johnc4510> rs3
21:13< johnc4510> royal sefton
21:14< paul928> i don't believe that i met him yet
21:14< ianmcorvidae> He hasn't been around much lately.

21:15< paul928> i'm glad to be here
21:15< johnc4510> ok
21:15< ianmcorvidae> Okay then.
21:16< ianmcorvidae> Announcements, john?
21:16< ianmcorvidae> Welcome, paul
21:16< johnc4510> yes i have 4
21:16< johnc4510> a couple are rather lengthy  :)
21:16< ianmcorvidae> lol, go on.
21:16< johnc4510> I got an email from Mathew Helmke today. Mathew is a Ubuntu Forums Administrator living in Morocco. Mathew is from Arizona and even though he is not living here now, he hopes to return one day.
21:16< johnc4510> He would like to become an "Unoffical Member" of our team if you all agree. I for one am in favor of his becoming an Offical Member. I know Mathew from the forums and he is a really good person.
21:17< johnc4510> He is dedicated to Ubuntu and I feel it would be a nice thing to do for him, especially since he hopes to return here someday in the future. This is up to the team though, so please express your views. Thanks
21:17< ianmcorvidae> If he'll come to meetings, call him whatever you'd like :P
21:17< johnc4510> his email sounded like he was homesick
21:17< johnc4510> hee hee
21:17< johnc4510> i personlly don't see a problem with this
21:17< johnc4510> do you guys
21:17< ianmcorvidae> I'm fine with out-of-state members, so long as they participate; that's really my main concern :)
21:17< johnc4510> ?
21:17< ianmcorvidae> Seems fine to me.
21:18< ianmcorvidae> Others?
21:18< paul928> no problem
21:18< jacob2440> i agree
21:18< johnc4510> well, he would be able to do projects
21:18< johnc4510> but i think he would do meetings
21:18< johnc4510> i wonder what the time difference is
21:18< ianmcorvidae> Better than many of our members :P
21:18< ianmcorvidae> Probably 9 hours.
21:18< ianmcorvidae> I'd guess morocco's +1

21:29< johnc4510> ty
21:29< johnc4510> ok ianmcorvidae
21:30< ianmcorvidae> Ok. Skipping Education, Server, and Comp4Kids since we don't have the people here to talk about them.
21:30< paul928> pwesselius definitely is not me
21:30< ianmcorvidae> Team Approval, excellent.
21:30< johnc4510> k
21:30< ianmcorvidae> I'll start.
21:30< johnc4510> yeah
21:31< ianmcorvidae> I would encourage all members to look at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Teams/Approval_Outline and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Teams/Approval_Outline/Resources
21:31< ianmcorvidae> These are our approval outline and volunteering pages, respectively.
21:31< ianmcorvidae> We'd, naturally, like to meet the deadlines on the first page, and we need your help (the second)
21:31< johnc4510> yes
21:31< ianmcorvidae> So, stop by and help. We're still designing the flyer, but you can always ask locations near you if they would be OK with some flyers or CD's.
21:32< ianmcorvidae> And, burning CDs is always excellent; there's a table for recording what you've contributed.
21:32< ianmcorvidae> (Hopefully with not too confusing a format... blame me for that)
21:32< johnc4510> :)
21:32< johnc4510> np
21:32< ianmcorvidae> But yes. If there's anywhere you like to frequent, or even that you don't, ask them about leaving Ubuntu CD's and flyers there.
21:33< ianmcorvidae> We need to collect locations for placement before we can decide on how many/what variety of things to put out.
21:33< ianmcorvidae> Thanks.
21:33< ianmcorvidae> john, now go ahead :)
21:33< johnc4510> k
21:33< johnc4510> SloggerKhan is going to try and have a prototype of the flyer ready by next week for the whole team to look at, comment on and see if that is something we want to use.
21:33< johnc4510> also
21:34< johnc4510> Marty has a friend who works in printing and he is going to see if we might get some help on the jewel cases. We thought that we needed a better paper stock than just regular home printer stock. If it works out we are hoping to get a very professional looking insert for the team to use.
21:34< johnc4510> you can come to ian or me to discuss where you might be able to give
21:35< johnc4510> out the cd flyer dvd's etc
21:35< johnc4510> ok ianmcorvidae that's all from me
21:35< johnc4510> :)
21:35< johnc4510> ty
21:35< ianmcorvidae> Ok, I guess that's all.
21:35< ianmcorvidae> Agenda for next week will be the same as this week until someone wants to add something :)
21:35< johnc4510> i'm sorry the turn out was so poor tonight
21:36< johnc4510> yes
21:36< ianmcorvidae> Any questions from the peanut gallery before we close the meeting?
21:36< johnc4510> on agenda
21:36< johnc4510> none here
21:36< paul928> what cd are you discussing?
21:36< johnc4510> as head peanut
21:36< johnc4510> that is
21:36< ianmcorvidae> paul928: Just standard Feisty CDs
21:36< johnc4510> paul928: we are going to give out ubuntu cd's
21:36< ianmcorvidae> We're planning to distribute them for free pickup at various locations.
21:37< ianmcorvidae> Hence the comment earlier about finding places.
21:37< johnc4510> we are burning them ourselves
21:37< ianmcorvidae> But, of course, we need CDs too :)
21:37< ianmcorvidae> Yep.
21:37< johnc4510> and donating the cd
21:37< johnc4510> yep
21:37< paul928> do they need to be printable?
21:37< johnc4510> paul928: look over the two links ianmcorvidae gave
21:37< johnc4510> cd's don't
21:37< paul928> ok i'll do that
21:38< johnc4510> if your talking lightscribe
21:38< ianmcorvidae> They don't need to be printable, inkjet or lightscribe :)
21:38< johnc4510> paul928: thanks
21:38< ianmcorvidae> Any more questions?
21:38< johnc4510> head peanut doesn't
21:38 * ianmcorvidae ticks off john, paul on list of people :P
21:38-!- Irssi: #ubuntu-arizona: Total of 14 nicks [1 ops, 0 halfops, 0 voices, 13 normal]
21:38< johnc4510> hee hee
21:38< ianmcorvidae> Well.
21:38< johnc4510> i'm not ticked off
21:39< johnc4510> :)
21:39< ianmcorvidae> I think that's all, then.
21:39< johnc4510> ok
21:39< johnc4510> thanks to all
