- Firefox got rid of their EULA. However, the trademarked logo still validates Iceweasel

We now have a ToDo functioning as a buglist for the wiki. Feel free to add to or fix issues. But don't delete them as of now, just mark them as done.

An installfest/party is plannedfor SoCal, but not too many details.
- Lcafiero is putting together an Intrepid installfest at Cabrillo College up at Santa Cruz. More details for both events later.

CaliforniaTeam/Projects/ToDoList - Up and Running!
- Intrepid Activity?
19:14 < Flannel> Alright, so, lets go ahead and get started. I've kept you all waiting long enough. 19:14 < Flannel> So, We have an agenda that's viewable here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Meetings/08September21 19:15 < Flannel> Four things on it so far: Firefox EULA stuff, our ToDoList thing is working (although my link seems to be broken, but I just fixed it), Intrepid stuff, and BarCamp CSULB 19:16 < Flannel> If anyone else has anything to add, feel free to speak up at anytime, like always. 19:16 < Flannel> So, first item on the agenda is the firefox thing. This is mostly just an update, in case you find yourself on the street discussing the EULA thing. 19:16 < izinucs> From what I've read, Mozilla did or is doing the right thing with the EULA for FF. 19:16 < Flannel> Its now not a popup thing but a first-run tab thing 19:17 < Flannel> http://lockshot.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/open.png 19:17 < izinucs> and an entirely different license.. I think 19:17 < Flannel> So, no more popup EULA-ish thing, just a tab that talks about it. 19:18 < izinucs> does that sortof finish the debate with iceweasle 19:18 < Flannel> Slashdot actually has an article about it, with links to groklaw, etc. If you want more information. 19:18 < Yasumoto> rock on, I hadn't seen the new one before 19:18 < Yasumoto> that actually looks awesome 19:18 < Flannel> izinucs: I don't think it does. Mozilla still retains the trademark thing, so Debian will still continue to rebrand it. 19:19 < Flannel> but I believe it will get rid of "abrowser" in Intrepid. 19:20 < izinucs> that's good 19:21 < Flannel> So, next topic, 19:21 < Flannel> I've fleshed out an initial version of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/ToDoList 19:22 < Flannel> It could use some sprucing up to make it more legible I think. And more importantly, It needs more content. 19:22 < Flannel> For those of you who weren't here last week. This is the page of pages that we need to look into, and fix, etc. 19:22 < Flannel> Sort of a bug list for our wiki 19:22 * AlgorithmicContr comes in late and sits quietly 19:22 < Flannel> Actually, that's almost exactly what it amounts to. 19:23 < Yasumoto> cool 19:23 < Flannel> so, feel free to add to it, whether full items or comments on already posted items. Feel free to fix them, etc. 19:23 < Flannel> If you fix them, I think we'll just change the color of them or something for the time being. That way people won't have items just randomly disappearing. 19:23 < Flannel> but that may change. 19:23 * Flannel has no idea. 19:24 < Yasumoto> sounds like a work in progress with a good foundation 19:24 < Flannel> Feel free to rewrite that page entirely if you want to make it look better too, I'm not in love with the markup ;) 19:25 < nhaines> Here I am from a moving car! 19:25 < Flannel> nhaines: hopefully not the one driving said moving car 19:25 < Yasumoto> and hopefully you're not doing backflips on top of the car as well 19:25 < Flannel> Especially while typing 19:26 < Flannel> put the phone/whatever down if you're going to do a backflip 19:26 < Flannel> If anyone has questions about items on that list, probably best to ask in IRC or the mailing list (not just editign the page to ask for them) 19:26 < Flannel> Other than that, I think that topic is done as well. 19:26 < Flannel> yes? no? 19:27 < lcafiero> +1 to yes 19:27 < nhaines> Flannel: I'm a very good multitasker 19:27 < izinucs> ditto 19:27 < Flannel> yes it is then. 19:28 < Flannel> Alright, so. As most of you ought to know, Intrepid is coming out at the end of October 19:28 * izinucs has the score update.. Dal=20 / GB=9 19:29 < Flannel> izinucs: Football doesn't matter until tomorrow night. 19:29 < izinucs> :) 19:29 < Flannel> izinucs: you should know this ;) 19:29 < nhaines> Intrepid will be fun! 19:29 < Flannel> We need to figure out what we want to do to celebrate. Party, Dinner somewere, Installfest, bugjam, whatever 19:30 < nhaines> We should do a dinner and an installfest! 19:30 < lcafiero> We'll have an installfest around Intrepid's release 19:30 < Flannel> nhaines: Just not dinner during an installfest. 19:30 < Flannel> lcafiero: Up at Cabrillo? 19:30 < nhaines> Flannel: Wipe the BBQ ribs off your hands before reseating that PCI card! 19:31 < Yasumoto> I like dinner 19:31 < Yasumoto> I've been doing so many "real" events that I'm totally down for a laid back party 19:31 < Flannel> nhaines: who needs thermal grease when you have BBQ sauce 19:32 < nhaines> Flannel: is tabasco rated for higher temps? 19:32 < izinucs> mayonaise? 19:33 < Flannel> So, perhaps dinner and party/whatever thing, where arbitrary people could come if they wanted to have us demo/install? 19:33 * Flannel notes we won't be deciding tonight. 19:34 < Flannel> Sounds good, on all accounts. You should all write emails to the mailing list! 19:34 < nhaines> Do we have much luck with venues that allow both food and computers? 19:34 < izinucs> church socials? 19:35 < Flannel> nhaines: Well, we don't necessarily have to do them at the same time. If we have 15 people, that's only 4 cars if we carpool. 19:35 < Flannel> But, those are details! Write your congre^H^H^H^H^H^Hmailing list! 19:35 < nhaines> True! 19:36 < Flannel> lcafiero: I assume we'll hear more about details (dates/etc) when it gets more firm? 19:37 < lcafiero> We will organize a Intrepid installfest at Cabrillo College in Aptos (Santa Cruz) and I'll give you details once we get it organized 19:37 < lcafiero> Our Hardy Heron was probably our best event all year in the spring 19:37 < Flannel> lcafiero: Sounds great. Thanks. 19:37 < Flannel> One of these times, I'll be able to head up and check it out. 19:38 < Flannel> So, uh, I guess that wraps up Intrepid stuff. 19:38 < Flannel> Yasumoto now has some information regarding a BarCamp at CSULB 19:38 < Yasumoto> Well, not really 19:38 < Yasumoto> but I did want to point out it's coming up soon 19:38 < Yasumoto> https://barcamp.pbwiki.com/BarCampCSULB 19:39 < Flannel> when? 19:39 < Flannel> oh 19:39 < Yasumoto> It's about a month from now, October 18th and 19th 19:39 < Yasumoto> starting 10am on saturday (the 18th) 19:39 < nhaines> Sounds awesome! 19:40 < nhaines> Glenn Zucmann was putting all that together, right? 19:40 < Yasumoto> yep 19:40 < Flannel> nhaines: Looks that way, yeah 19:40 < Yasumoto> here's the initial mailing list post in july: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-us-ca/2008-July/000335.html 19:41 < Yasumoto> so that's about all I have about it, just thought I'd bring it up 19:41 < Flannel> Sounds good. I had forgotten all about it. 19:42 * Flannel has a calendar now. 19:42 < Yasumoto> and there's also UDS (the Ubuntu Developer Summit) in Mountain View in December 19:42 < Yasumoto> Flannel: noice 19:42 < lcafiero> Cool. 19:42 < lcafiero> Nice there's something up here for a change :-) 19:42 < izinucs> noice = re-joice 19:43 < nhaines> BarCamp LA 6 wil be on October 25-26 as well. 19:43 < Flannel> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UDSJaunty is the page for UDS Jaunty 19:43 < Flannel> And that includes FOSSCamp on Friday and Saturday beforehand (bottom of that page) 19:44 < Yasumoto> Ans I guess if we're talking about events, there's also SCaLE, which we've already registered for. February 20th-22nd 19:44 < nhaines> yay! 19:44 < Flannel> Ah yes. I'll put that on my calendar as well. 19:44 < Yasumoto> if you know of any Open Source projects that might be interested in attending, lemme know 19:44 < lcafiero> Argh. Lindependence Portland is on Oct. 25 19:44 < Yasumoto> portland? 19:45 < Yasumoto> like Oregon? 19:45 < lcafiero> Oregon 19:45 < Flannel> yes, Portland? 19:45 < izinucs> Nice area.. 19:45 < lcafiero> We're trying to find an Ubuntu guy/gal to represent up there. 19:45 < lcafiero> Does anyone know anyone up there? 19:45 < Flannel> I'll ask around. 19:45 < Flannel> lcafiero: Have you tried the oregon and/or PWN teams? 19:45 < nhaines> lcafiero: this came directly from the Felton event? 19:46 < Yasumoto> there's a really big OSS community up there, I was there last week for the Linux Plumbers Conference 19:46 * jbermudes tardily sneaks in like a ninja but trips over something that makes a loud sound and is now embarrassed and sits in the corner 19:47 < izinucs> Plumbers conference? 19:48 < Yasumoto> http://www.linuxplumbersconf.org 19:48 < lcafiero> Thanks, Yasumoto 19:48 < Yasumoto> The kernel and other low-level services, like pulseaudio, hal, dbus, etc 19:48 < izinucs> ah.. now that makes sense.. thanks 19:49 < lcafiero> We've already got OpenSUSE and Fedora reps, but it needs to have an Ubuntu presence 19:49 < Yasumoto> lcafiero: I know there's a canonical kernel guy up there, but he seems to be pretty busy, especially with intrepid coming up so soon 19:49 < Flannel> lcafiero: and these people would be doing what? 19:51 < lcafiero> Grant Bowman and Daniel Gimpelevich did a great job in Felton -- handing out CDs, helping folks get started on Linux 19:53 < Flannel> Alright, anyone have anything else? 19:54 < Flannel> Alright, Thank you all for coming, been a very nice meeting. Congratulations to lcafiero to breaking out and being able to attend. 19:54 < Flannel> Next meeting will be October 5th, at 7pm. 19:54 < Flannel> Oh, and... 19:55 < Flannel> Stay tuned to the mailing list, I'd like to have a pretty good feel (and maybe more) for what we're doing for intrepid by the next meeting.
