   5 [02:00]  * eps waves
   6 [02:01] <philballew> here
   7 [02:01]  * grantbow waves
   8 [02:02] <pleia2> we had an ubuntu hour in SF recently, and someone else called the debian hour, was fun :)
   9 [02:02] <pleia2> Rick Moen has been coming to the debian dinners lately
  10 [02:02] <philballew> who is that?
  11 [02:03] <pleia2> he's the king of all bay area linux things ;)
  12 [02:03] <pleia2> runs a bunch of the mailing lists, old school linux guy
  13 [02:03] <pleia2> he maintains http://linuxmafia.com/bale/ too
  14 [02:03] <darthrobot`> Title: [The BALE -- Bay Area Linux Events]
  15 [02:03]  * philballew thought pleia2 was king (or queen is she prefers) of bay area Linux.
  16 [02:04] <pleia2> I am really a newbie here
  17 [02:05] <eps> Are you going to be around for a regularly-scheduled S.F. Ubuntu Hour?
  18 [02:05] <eps> (in April)
  19 [02:05] <pleia2> yep
  20 [02:05] <philballew> I will be at your may one probably if I am up there. June will not be as I will be south the border.
  21 [02:05] <pleia2> and in May
  22 [02:06] <grantbow> Ubuntu Hour in March was fun :-)
  23 [02:06] <pleia2> no, not in may
  24 [02:06] <philballew> If you need someone to run that one, I might be able to cover that
  25 [02:07] <pleia2> I don't "own" it, so anyone is welcome to organize and call it if they're around :)
  26 [02:07] <grantbow> It's just a matter of showing up and being friendly.
  27 [02:07] <grantbow> we should do one every day in SF, lol
  28 [02:07] <grantbow> "we" ;-)
  29 [02:08] <philballew> Where two ubuntu users are gathered, an Ubuntu hour is there.
  30 [02:09] <eps> pleia2: April 10 S.F. Ubuntu Hour + B.A.D.?
  31 [02:10] <pleia2> eps: that's the plan
  32 [02:10] <eps> pleia: please post to ML and add to LoCo directory when finalized
  33 [02:10] <pleia2> always do :)
  34 [02:10] <grantbow> wow
  35 [02:11] <pleia2> anyone else have anything upcoming or ideas they wish to talk about?
  36 [02:11] <eps> Release Party for 13.04? -> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/RaringRelease
  37 [02:11] <darthrobot`> Title: [CaliforniaTeam/Projects/RaringRelease - Ubuntu Wiki]
  38 [02:11] <philballew> eps, pleia2 is a busy person, she doesnt always have the time for those things.
  39 [02:11] <pleia2> philballew: I always do them :(
  40 [02:11] <pleia2> I won't be around for the release, so if someone wants to do the SF one, please do :)
  41 [02:12] <philballew> pleia2, yes,and thank you for doing all you are able to.
  42 [02:12]  * philballew has to go
  43 [02:13] <eps> Raring's Final Beta is due April 4; grantbow has an Ubuntu Hour in Berkeley on April 6 (might be an opportunity to distribute copies for testing?).
  44 [02:13] <grantbow> philballew: wow
  45 [02:13] <grantbow> eps: are you making said copies?
  46 [02:13] <eps> The Release is due April 25. BerkeleyLUG meets on the 28th, so we might want to do something in conjunction with that.
  47 [02:15] <eps> grantbow: Maybe. We also have SF-LUG on April 7, so it makes sense.
  48 [02:16] <grantbow> eps: if you are volunteering, great. If not please stop volunteering others to do work you think might "make sense"
  49 [02:16] <pleia2> it's ok to toss ideas out there
  50 [02:17] <pleia2> (but yeah, if they don't pan out, best way to make sure they do is to volunteer :))
  51 [02:17] <eps> grantbow: The release is a month away. If we don't start talking about it now, it's NEVER going to happen. This group is not adept at doing anything last-minute.
  52 [02:17] <eps> I'm not volunteering people; this is a call for volunteers. If I mention someone by name, they've already been contacted.
  53 [02:18] <eps> O
  54 [02:18]  * grantbow shrugs
  55 [02:19] <eps> grantbow: you're not obligated to do anything.
  56 [02:20] <pleia2> eps: perhaps you can drum up some support by posting some thoughts to the mailing list?
  57 [02:20] <pleia2> I fly to philly for my wedding on the 23rd, so I won't be around for a while
  58 [02:20] <pleia2> (eeeek that's a month away!)
  59 [02:22] <eps> If Ubuntu adopts rolling releases, there may not be any Release Parties after this one.
  60 [02:22] <pleia2> they voted not to
  61 [02:23] <pleia2> they just cut the support time for non-lts 6 month releases to 9 months instead of 18
  62 [02:23] <eps> I was under the impression the idea wasn't dead ... it's just going to be tweaked and reintroduced.
  63 [02:23] <pleia2> and they'll have a "development" branch that people can subscribe to, that won't have releases, always development
  64 [02:23] <eps> Next month features a trio of EOLs.
  65 [02:24] <grantbow> makes sense - blog posts on that and related stuff at http://princessleia.com/journal/
  66 [02:24] <darthrobot`> Title: [pleia2's blog]
  67 [02:24] <eps> Perhaps we should be planning a wake?
  68 [02:24] <pleia2> well, the tech board announcement is here: http://fridge.ubuntu.com/2013/03/19/changes-in-ubuntu-releases-decided-by-the-ubuntu-technical-board/
  69 [02:24] <darthrobot`> Title: [Changes in Ubuntu releases decided by the Ubuntu Technical Board]
  70 [02:24] <pleia2> (my blog doesn't really talk about that directly :))
  71 [02:25] <grantbow> ah, my mistake
  72 [02:25] <grantbow> your blog is very informative though :-)
  73 [02:26] <pleia2> thanks!
  74 [02:28] <pleia2> ok, so release is a month away, some EOLs - 8.04 (hardy) server, 10.04 (lucid) deskop and 11.10
  75 [02:28] <pleia2> (oneiric)
  76 [02:29] <pleia2> anyone else have anything?
  77 [02:31] <pleia2> alright, thanks everyone :)
