  • Define Primary Aim: Functional (upgrades) vs. Exposure (introduce people to Ubuntu)
  • Date and Time (on release day vs. better for exposure, i.e. weekends, etc.)
  • Venue considerations/needs (i.e. high speed internet vs. available for exposure)
  • Venue options (follows on date and time and other considerations)
  • Identify further actions items / next meeting time

Decisions Taken

  • Should be in internally focused informal meeting
  • Aimed at promoting the new features of 12.04 (through presentations)
  • Also aimed at helping those present to upgrade using a cached server

Discussions Deferred

  • Date, Time and Venue were hard to define - Was decided to discuss these at the next monthly meetup

Offers for resources

  • Haden offered to prepare a cached server that everyone can upgrade from (no need for internet)
  • DirkT offered to prepare a wireless point he can tether onto GPRS/3G for those who need internet

Deepest Desire for Launch Party

  • It was discussed and suggested the best and most unique party we could have would be in the desert somewhere

Actions to follow

  • Discussion about the release party will continue at next weeks monthly meeting (on Wednesday 1st February)
