What's going on? :) 11 02:03:36 <pleia2> alas, nothing up here so far 12 02:04:05 <nhaines> Nor down here. 13 02:04:21 <nhaines> Although the Ubuntu Hours in Pasadena continue happily, as I understand it. 14 02:04:23 <pleia2> our focus has mostly shifted to LTS for our releases parties 15 02:04:40 <dax> (I'm around but multitasking right now.) 16 02:04:48 <pleia2> we haven't had an Ubuntu Hour in some time either, but there is someone interested in picking up where I left off 17 02:05:12 <nhaines> That's good to hear! 18 02:05:42 <nhaines> Ubuntu Hours are good ways to sort of keep up to date with that's going on in the Ubuntu world. 19 02:06:01 <nhaines> #topic Announcements 20 02:06:11 <nhaines> Are there any other announcements this week? 21 02:06:49 * lyn||ian does not have any 22 02:07:04 <pleia2> nothing from me either 23 02:07:27 <nhaines> Okay then, moving on to agenda items. 24 02:07:48 <nhaines> #topic Final discussion of leadership document amendments before proceeding to a vote 25 02:08:21 <nhaines> So on February 19th, I proposed an amendment to our leadership document. 26 02:08:52 <nhaines> There's been no discussion on the mailing list and therefore I assume 100% unanimous assent from the LoCo. :P 27 02:09:15 <lyn||ian> nhaines, link now I do not remember any complaints to it 28 02:09:27 <pleia2> hehe 29 02:09:42 <pleia2> #link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NathanHaines/CaliforniaLeadershipDocument?action=diff&rev2=2&rev1=1 30 02:09:42 <darthrobot`> Title: [Diff for "NathanHaines/CaliforniaLeadershipDocument" - Ubuntu Wiki] 31 02:09:45 <pleia2> the diff of changes 32 02:09:53 <pleia2> nhaines: care to summarize? 33 02:10:07 <nhaines> Our current document is here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Leadership 34 02:10:07 <darthrobot`> Title: [CaliforniaTeam/Leadership - Ubuntu Wiki] 35 02:10:16 <nhaines> And the proposed new document is here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NathanHaines/CaliforniaLeadershipDocument 36 02:10:16 <darthrobot`> Title: [NathanHaines/CaliforniaLeadershipDocument - Ubuntu Wiki] 37 02:10:25 <pleia2> #link https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-us-ca/2017-February/002782.html 38 02:10:25 <darthrobot`> Title: [[Ubuntu-US-CA] Proposed amendment to the Ubuntu Californialeadership document.] 39 02:10:37 <pleia2> ^ Original email about the proposed changes from February 40 02:11:12 <nhaines> The amendments basically just change references to "leadership council" to "leadership role." 41 02:11:51 <dax> and make that one person instead of a three person council, obviously 42 02:11:52 <nhaines> The intention is to allow a single elected leader rather than an elected triumvirate, but also to allow a group or two or three leaders in the future if needed. 43 02:12:03 <dax> i read the document back in February, am in favor of it 44 02:12:21 <pleia2> I like increasing the flexibility here 45 02:12:40 <lyn||ian> yes increased flexibility sounds good 46 02:12:56 <pleia2> I think the trio served its purpose for a time, but we don't want to be locked into something forever if it's not working for us 47 02:12:57 <nhaines> There's some other silliness in the document, but I haven't changed any of that. :) 48 02:13:28 <dax> If we had more activity I'd want more pondering of it, but until/unless that happens I think one caretaker/leader is fine. 49 02:13:28 <nhaines> pleia2: yes, and with the lack of leader nominations this last time around, I don't think the group is big enough to support three leaders. 50 02:13:50 * pleia2 nods 51 02:14:03 <lyn||ian> yes nhaines 52 02:14:11 <nhaines> Which is different from whether or not we *need* three leaders, but I don't think we do, either. :) 53 02:14:53 <nhaines> In any case, I wanted to give the group a last chance to comment before I called for a vote. 54 02:15:11 <nhaines> Once the vote on the changes is finished, we can make another call for nominations and do a leadership vote. 55 02:15:50 <pleia2> thank you for your work on this, sorry it's taken so long to finally talk about it :) 56 02:15:54 <pleia2> nothing else from me though 57 02:16:04 <nhaines> It's okay. SCALE and then other things were in the way. :) 58 02:16:13 <nhaines> Let's vote on whether we should vote. 59 02:16:19 <pleia2> hehe 60 02:16:29 <nhaines> #vote Put proposed leadership document amendment to a LoCo-wide vote for ratification. 61 02:16:29 <darthrobot`> Please vote on: Put proposed leadership document amendment to a LoCo-wide vote for ratification. 62 02:16:29 <darthrobot`> Public votes can be registered by saying +1, +0 or -1 in channel, (private votes don't work yet, but when they do it will be by messaging the channel followed by +1/-1/+0 to me) 63 02:16:32 <nhaines> +1 64 02:16:32 <darthrobot`> +1 received from nhaines 65 02:16:34 <pleia2> +1 66 02:16:34 <darthrobot`> +1 received from pleia2 67 02:16:37 <dax> +1 68 02:16:37 <darthrobot`> +1 received from dax 69 02:17:05 <lyn||ian> +1 70 02:17:05 <darthrobot`> +1 received from lyn||ian 71 02:17:22 <nhaines> #endvote 72 02:17:22 <darthrobot`> Voting ended on: Put proposed leadership document amendment to a LoCo-wide vote for ratification. 73 02:17:22 <darthrobot`> Votes for:4 Votes against:0 Abstentions:0 74 02:17:22 <darthrobot`> Motion carried 75 02:17:47 <pleia2> just going to toss a simple poll up in launchpad/ 76 02:17:48 <pleia2> ? 77 02:17:56 <nhaines> That or we can send out a condor-seat ballot to the LoCo. 78 02:18:34 <pleia2> collecting emails for that is D: 79 02:18:48 <nhaines> That's okay though, because I'm not the one who has to do it. 80 02:18:51 <pleia2> and it's just a yes/no anyway, right? 81 02:18:54 <nhaines> Right. 82 02:19:03 <pleia2> so condorcet is not so great for it :) 83 02:19:12 <dax> last/only previous amendment was just approved by IRC vote. If you want a non-IRC thing I'd just LP it 84 02:19:24 <pleia2> well, I can set that up 85 02:19:31 <nhaines> dax: that's something I should've looked up then. 86 02:19:43 <nhaines> Do we want to LP it or should we just do an IRC vote next meeting? 87 02:20:08 <dax> pleia2: would LP be easy? 88 02:20:09 <pleia2> lp is easy and open to more people, irc is hard and I'll be on a train during the next meeting 89 02:20:15 <dax> I vote LP then 90 02:20:31 <nhaines> Let's vote on how we should vote for the vote. 91 02:20:38 <nhaines> Nah.
