Ubuntu Brainstorm: Call for Idea Reviewers. After observing the current trends and workload, the QA Team felt that there was a need for more idea reviewers. Therefore, they are looking for Brainstorm users who would be willing to volunteer for doing the reviews. You can read more about it here: http://blog.qa.ubuntu.com/node/44. Brainstorm is the idea section of Ubuntu where you can add your ideas and/or vote for others ideas for future releases.

johnc4510 then moved on to the release parties: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/JauntyEvents . Discussion was held about having the Phoenix release party at Peter Piper Piza. The date of Saturday, April 25 was agreed on. xHans mentioned that the PLUG install fest was on April 25th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at UAT. UAT has a cafe for food during the day. A main party could then be held after the install fest. Boulders on Broadway was suggested for the party. The final agreement for the Phoenix release party was:
- Saturday, April 25, 2009
- Install Fest at UAT from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
- Release party at Boulders on Broadway following the install fest.
- scott_ev will be contacting ASU and inviting them to come out, too.
johnc4510 then said that he'd set up the Tucson release party at Silver Mines Subs again. Wifi is good, food is right there, and it's close to the college.
A discussion was also held concerning the RedSeven release party. Those have normally been held on the day of the release (which would be April 23), but precise day/time and location weren't known.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:39 PM.
