Parties anyone? 11 [02:08] <philipballew> we need a Ubuntu cake if there is a party 12 [02:09] <Faqtotum> will there be live ocelots? 13 [02:09] <pleia2> the release of 11.10 is on Thursday and so far we don't have any parties registered in the loco directory or announced anywhere 14 [02:09] <Mark_> yes 15 [02:09] <pleia2> philipballew: do you have a venue? 16 [02:10] <philipballew> pleia2, I can probably convince Darkwing to do a Friday night release party at the place we do our ubuntu hours at. so yes. there is a very good likelyhood of a party 17 [02:10] <pleia2> philipballew: cool :) 18 [02:10] <philipballew> but I would not do a weekday myself 19 [02:10] <philipballew> hope thats cool with everyone 20 [02:10] <pleia2> I can't help with anything in San Francisco this week because I'm out of town (in Philadelphia right now, it's after 10PM!) 21 [02:11] <pleia2> instead I'm giving an 11.10 talk at a lug out here, and going to the philly release party ;) 22 [02:11] <eps> Why is there a counter that says release in 8 days? 23 [02:12] <philipballew> nice pleia2 ! you give good talks 24 [02:12] <pleia2> eps: what counter? this is the official one: http://www.ubuntu.com/community/countdown 25 [02:12] <philipballew> its this Thursday? 26 [02:12] <pleia2> philipballew: yep 27 [02:13] <eps> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/OneiricRelease 28 [02:13] <pleia2> eps: oh I see (was taking a while to load, bad wifi...) 29 [02:13] <philipballew> wow, time come by fast. They pushed it out faster this year I think 30 [02:13] <pleia2> lookethanks, I'll submit a bug report 31 [02:15] <philipballew> I updated to 11.10 yesterday. unity works better. 32 [02:15] <philipballew> though all the hacks I did to it, now have to be re-done 33 [02:15] <pleia2> anyone else have anything to add about release parties or release events? 34 [02:15] <eps> We should have some. :-) 35 [02:16] <Faqtotum> i still need to update to 11.04 36 [02:16] <pleia2> eps: can you lead up something in the bay area? 37 [02:17] <eps> Do we have anyone else? 38 [02:17] <pleia2> grantbow and I usually do stuff, but we're both out of town, so we're a bit short on people to organize 39 [02:17] <Faqtotum> i second the motion to draft eps for the release party leadership 40 [02:17] <philipballew> If there is any meeting in ca, it would need to be done asap so a email can get put out 41 [02:18] <pleia2> philipballew: agreed 42 [02:18] <eps> I don't think I have enough lead time to put something together *and* get the word out. 43 [02:18] <philipballew> we can always make it in 2 weeks 44 [02:19] <pleia2> yeah, we can do something later in the month 45 [02:19] <philipballew> say that we pushed it out later so everyone could upgrade first 46 [02:19] <Faqtotum> it doesn't have to be _on_ release day 47 [02:19] <pleia2> we've done installfests a couple weeks after release before 48 [02:19] <eps> And that does give time to replicate discs, etc. 49 [02:19] <philipballew> a thursday party would not be the best attendance probably. but i dont know much 50 [02:20] <Darkwing> Wow. Sorry guys 51 [02:20] <Darkwing> Got caught up with the kids. 52 [02:20] <pleia2> well I'll send a follow-up email to the list reminding people that they can plan things later out of they're busy this week 53 [02:20] <pleia2> hey Darkwing 54 [02:21] <pleia2> [TOPIC] Announcements, etc 55 [02:21] <pleia2> anyone else have anything before we wrap up? 56 [02:23] <eps> Ubuntu Hours, perhaps? 57 [02:24] <pleia2> no SF ubuntu hour this month (since I'm traveling so much, and no one else has planned one) 58 [02:24] <pleia2> Darkwing, philipballew, are the San Diego ubuntu hours going to keep happening? 59 [02:24] <Darkwing> Are 60 [02:24] <Darkwing> Yes rather. 61 [02:24] <Darkwing> We are scheduled for twice a month. First and third tuesdays 62 [02:26] <pleia2> are there plans to add an organizer to each one to make sure that even if one person cancels, the hour still happens or an announcement is made? 63 [02:26] <philipballew> Darkwing, is doing a good thing with them. We have a ubuntu user who owns the coffee shop and its in the downtown area so many people can come 64 [02:26] <pleia2> unfortunately if anyone showed up last time kdub had to leave halfway through so they wouldn't have found anyone there, which reflects poorly on the team :\ 65 [02:27] <Darkwing> Oh, Libertopia is a no go. I can't afford to foot the bill and bad timing with being kicked out of my apt for termite tenting. 66 [02:27] <pleia2> can you remove it from the loco directory and make an announcement? 67 [02:27] <Darkwing> Yup. 68 [02:28] <philipballew> yeah, i'm gonna do some hour advertising in the next few weeks 69 [02:29] <pleia2> philipballew: can you commit to attending? 70 [02:30] <philipballew> Yes, I come every time, except I had a history test that next day so I had to study. I will commit, do not worry. 71 [02:30] <philipballew> also for the hour, I'm gonna need some 11.10 cd's 72 [02:30] <pleia2> ok, great :) 73 [02:30] <pleia2> we've already put in our request for them, hopefully they'll get here before I leave for DUS 74 [02:30] <pleia2> UDS 75 [02:30] <bkerensa> pleia2: 76 [02:30] <bkerensa> pleia2: Got a question you might be able to help with :D 77 [02:31] <pleia2> bkerensa: we're just wrapping up a meeting, can it wait a couple minutes? 78 [02:31] <bkerensa> oh sure (my bad) 79 [02:31] <philipballew> ok, you can send them to me or Darkwing , doesnt matter 80 [02:31] <pleia2> I'll announce it when I receive them, so you guys can work out who I should ship them to :) 81 [02:32] <philipballew> sounds good with me 82 [02:32] <pleia2> ok, anything else before we finish? 83 [02:34] <pleia2> alright, thanks everyone :) 84 [02:34] <pleia2> #endmeeting
