Summary of the April 19, 2009 meeting
johnc4510 called the meeting to order at 9:01 PM
johnc4510 began the meeting by asking jurelex to introduce himself: "I'm from Peru, I live in Phoenix since 2000. I have a small computer rapair shop and also a small web design studio." Team members welcomed jurelex to the team.
johnc4510 then gave some announcements:
Ubuntu 9.04 Release Candidate is out. https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2009-April/000121.html Final release will be next Thursday.
Ubuntu 9.04 RC for ARM is out too. I don't know too much about this, but tyche informs me it's a release specifically aimed atthe Babbage development board for netbooks. https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-announce/2009-April/000562.html . tyche added, "I don't know about for netbooks. Looking back at it, it looks like it's for embedded use."
The next Packaging Training Session will be about Package testing: piuparts and VMs, and it will be led by Daniel T Chen. It is scheduled for: 23rd April, 00:00 UTC, and it will take place in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net. http://ubuntupackaging.wordpress.com/2009/04/17/packaging-training-session-update/ .

I ordered our shipit bulk 9.04 cds this week. As soon as I get confirmation, it will be 2 wks. until order arrives. Maybe a bit less. It was about 10 days last time. 400 assorted CDs: Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Server, same as last time. So, as soon as i receive confirmation we can start planning the installfests with hans and hopefully ASU, too. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/JauntyEvents . All the info for the release parties is there.
johnc4510 didn't have a lot more, and thought we might discuss who's using the RC and what problems. Minor problems were talked about, and improvements over the last release were discussed.
johnc4510 then asked for PLUG announcements from xHans.
PLUG west side is this Wednesday http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/356 . Still waiting on bio and abstract on the talk, which is about getting involved. I'm also looking for a presentation on a product that runs GNU/Linux or a company that sells such a product.
Jaunty release party at Red Seven Thursday night. http://www.RedSevenLinux.com/events/
- There's a Girls in IT seminar this Friday morning for early teen girls. I've arranged for us to give out Ubuntu CDs and get some info about women in Free Software into one of the presentation.
We'll have an OpenStreetMaps presentation next month for PLUG and a weekend mapping party event.
johnc4510 then opened up the channel to cross-talk, there being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:43 PM.
