Meeting Logs

   1 19:00 < nhaines> Welcome to the Ubuntu California meeting for April 21st!
   2 19:00 < nhaines> Tonight's agenda is available here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Meetings/19April21
   3 19:01 < nhaines> #topic Announcements
   4 19:01 < nhaines> Let's mix things up a bit and start with the announcements.  :)
   5 19:01 < nhaines> Ubuntu 19.10 is out!  Yay!
   6 19:01 < b-yeezi> 19.04?
   7 19:02 < nhaines> Since I set up a new writing computer about two months ago, I've been running 10.10 with the minimal install and a few snaps.  It's been really solid.
   8 19:02 < nhaines> b-yeezi: yup!  Not sure where .10 came from.
   9 19:02 < nhaines> Ubuntu 19.04 is out.  And it is quite nice.  Linux 5.0 kernel, better GNOME Shell improvements.  Latest LibreOffice.
  10 19:04 < b-yeezi> python3.7 is good (at least for me(
  11 19:04 < nhaines> The next release cycle, "eaon," will begin to set the groundwork for the LTS release after that.  So to have 19.04 be so solid is a pretty start!
  12 19:05 < nhaines> #topic Upcoming events
  13 19:05 < nhaines> Are there any events happening in the near future we should know about?
  14 19:05 < nhaines> This is a great time to thinking about release parties, which can be as simple as meeting up at a local restaurant for dinner.
  15 19:07 < b-yeezi> I am a member of the San Diego Python user group. I'm going to suggest having an install party
  16 19:07 < b-yeezi> Which I would lead, but if anyone else is in SD area, I'd be happy to share the load
  17 19:08 < nhaines> It can be a good excuse for a get together!  Ubuntu 19.04 ships with Python 3.7.3.
  18 19:08 < nhaines> If you do decide to have a release party, be sure to list it at https://gettogether.community/ and announce it on the mailing list.  If you have any questions or need any help, please be sure to let us know!
  19 19:09 < b-yeezi> Is a release party separate from an install party?
  20 19:10 < nhaines> A release party is when people get together to say "yay, this thing exists!"  An install party is when people get together specifically to try and get a thing running on hardware.
  21 19:10 < nhaines> They don't have to be separate, but release parties are much easier to organize.  :)
  22 19:10 < b-yeezi> OK
  23 19:10 < nhaines> #topic Agenda
  24 19:11 < nhaines> The agenda for this meeting is empty.
  25 19:11 < nhaines> #topic Other business
  26 19:11 < nhaines> Anything else going on we should know about?
  27 19:14 < nhaines> Okay, we'll keep this meeting short due to the holiday.
  28 19:15 < nhaines> Feel free to discuss more on our mailing list, which you can subscribe to at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-us-ca
  29 19:15 < nhaines> Our next meeting is scheduled for May 19th, and I'll see everyone there!
  30 19:15 < nhaines> Take care, everyone.  :)
