Team Business


  • Stephen M. Webb mentioned the Desktop-Next/Unity8-Desktop user guide on the list. How to mobilize an interest among the team members to work with this new area of docs?


Ubuntu Manual


  • Create preliminary 15.04 content in preparation for 15.04 release day. Doug S. will do by April 13th. If it doesn't mess up links, will change to LTS only for installation guide.
  • Prepare to delete remaining 10.04 content at EOL at the end of April. Doug S. Prerequisite: 15.04 final done first.


  • Propose changing the monthly meeting time from 17:30 UTC to 17:00 UTC so that Peter M. has ability to attend. Note that the original change from 17:00 to 17:30 was as requested by Peter, so this shouldn't be an issue. However, maybe availabilities change between daylight saving time and standard time.
