Johnc4510 began the meeting with some announcements:
Karmic Koala 9.10 release schedule: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KarmicReleaseSchedule
Hug Day: March 12th, #ubuntu-bugs, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/20090312
LoCo Directory Moves Forward: Jono Bacon shows off screen shots of the new LoCo directory. The idea was to take the information from the LoCo Team List, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeamList, and gather it in a database that was easier to read and access. This is still a work in progress.
- With Jaunty not far off here is a series of 4 good tutorials on encrypted home directories by Dustin Kirkland. Dustin is a core developer of Ubuntu.

The front page of our website is now aggregated to the US Teams Planet: http://planet.ubuntu-us.org/
Our new website: 18 registered users, 220 hits so far. A new poll on what version of Ubuntu do you use? One interesting item in the reports is that Ubuntu-it(Italy) was a top referrer over the last 3 days. They picked up my blog feed on WordPress and put it on their news page. Thanks ubuntu-it!! http://www.ubuntu.lt/render/News;nid,409 We are also getting some hits from the RSS feed, so people are starting to subscribe. w00t!!
I got an email from zach at the ASULUG. ASULUG is planning an InstallFest for this spring on March 21st. Zach has asked our team to join in on the event. That is a Saturday. We've kind of missed hooking up with them, so it would be great if we could attend.
Jaunty events: johnc4510 is going to set up a wiki page this week to start our planning. Check the team wiki page about Tuesday: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam . Don't be afraid to edit the wiki page with ideas, etc. He'll link it there. kennymc0 mentioned that he could call Peter Piper Pizza again. He would just would need a date and time. tyche mentioned that they have wifi but no power. kennymc0 added that we can look for something else and if we cant find anything that's always a fall back place. Somewhere that we know that we can get. tyche chimed in with the fact that he's got the opposite problem at his apartment complex. Power, but no wifi. johnc4510 added that we have about 7 weeks to get it going, including Tucson, so lets get planning.
WordPress is working good. We're talking of WordPress MU (Multi User), but it's talk right now. http://220.127.116.11/blog/ . johnc4510 has his all set up now. All content transferred, except for today's posting. Anyone else want to work on the test server to learn or test some apps, they are of course welcome to. Just ask, and we'll get you set up.
johnc4510 sent out some feelers for the ABLEconf local committee. He's still waiting for a couple of them to reply.
scott_ev requested that everyone read this this week https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage . We'll go over it next week. Then, maybe, we can get going on some bugs.
johnc4510 then asked for PLUG announcements. tyche responded with one that xHans had posted to the channel earlier in the meeting:
PLUG east side meeting. That's March 12 (Thursday) at 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The topic is Free Software Gaming, presented by Nathan, and SCaLE 7x review presented by Scott. It'll be held at the Sequoia Charter School in Mesa. See http://plug.phoenix.az.us/node/111
The meeting was adjourned at 9:38 PM.
