    15:31:24 <nigelb> #link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mohan_chml/IndianLoCo

    15:31:39 <IAmNotThatGuy> Hello all

    15:31:44 <nigelb> So who's here for the meeting? Please respond with 'o/'

    15:31:47 <nigelb> o/

    15:31:55 <m4n1sh> o/

    15:32:06 <IAmNotThatGuy> any others

    15:32:24 <rahul27> o/ 15:32:28 * nigelb pokes shadeslayer

    15:32:38 <droidslayer> Here

    15:32:43 <droidslayer> What up

    15:32:50 <nigelb> oh, well, he's here

    15:33:21 <nigelb> Ok, so IAmNotThatGuy not that guy has been working on reviving our loco.

    15:33:27 <IAmNotThatGuy> pjarnahom, Ramakrishna_cse

    15:33:33 <nigelb> And today's agenda is basically stuff that he's come up with

    15:33:46 <nigelb> So thanks a lot IAmNotThatGuy for working on them.

    15:33:49 <pjarnahom> IAmNotThatGuy, yes

    15:34:20 <nigelb> #topic Make a registry to count number or Indian Ubuntu users to plan about teaching and involving in development

    15:34:20 <meetingology> TOPIC: Make a registry to count number or Indian Ubuntu users to plan about teaching and involving in development

    15:34:21 <IAmNotThatGuy> Its our community and we planned it. and not "me"

    15:34:36 <nigelb> IAmNotThatGuy: yeha, but you took the action Smile :)

    15:34:43 <IAmNotThatGuy> I wish to elaborate this =]

    15:34:48 <nigelb> Go ahead Smile :)

    15:34:58 <droidslayer> BTW we need to update the wiki as well

    15:35:20 <droidslayer> The Indian loco wiki page

    15:35:24 <IAmNotThatGuy> I watched many Ubuntu Users in India. and we are not having good contacts among each other

    15:35:24 <m4n1sh> droidslayer: sure

    15:35:34 <m4n1sh> IAmNotThatGuy: we have so many on ##linux-india

    15:35:41 <m4n1sh> just that the community is scattered

    15:35:49 <nigelb> m4n1sh: Let him finish Smile :)

    15:35:55 <m4n1sh> nigelb: fine Go ahead IAmNotThatGuy

    15:36:34 <IAmNotThatGuy> and I felt that we should make some stuff to bring everyone together, separately to our LoCO involvement and Motivate people about Our community

    15:37:20 <IAmNotThatGuy> Like, when we are together, we can get some more helping hands and I believe each and every Ubuntu user motivates others to try it

    15:37:21 <bihari> Yes we shud know each other

    15:38:16 <IAmNotThatGuy> and I believe that "I motivate others" is not a successful word that "We can motivate others and can give a choice"

    15:38:37 <IAmNotThatGuy> so, The first step I like to take is, identify all and group them

    15:39:02 <IAmNotThatGuy> and this also involves in combining all LoCos In India to one

    15:39:07 <nigelb> o/

    15:39:11 <geekosopher> 0/ sorry I am late

    15:39:26 <rahul27> IAmNotThatGuy, we could use divide and conquer

    15:39:38 <nigelb> rahul27: that would make us weaker instead of stronger

    15:39:55 <rahul27> have SPOC's for each Loco in India

    15:40:00 <IAmNotThatGuy> rahul27, yes. and we can do one more thing. we can tell our friends to join the LoCo and participate in activities and tell him to spread

    15:40:24 <rahul27> So that people are reachable

    15:40:40 <rahul27> we could have get togethers

    15:41:21 <rahul27> so the SPOC's could send updates to the Indian LoCo

    15:41:31 <IAmNotThatGuy> rahul27, making all to get here, or to a forum (or some kinda counter with their mail ID) is needed

    15:41:33 <nigelb> We really don't want too many levels of governance

    15:41:55 <nigelb> I'd rather have a simple stucture with few people responsible for bits and rotate their responsibilities

    15:42:12 <IAmNotThatGuy> rahul27, each of us has power here. and I believe discussing in a group or consulting one of the group is enough

    15:42:42 <rahul27> nigelb, that would also work

    15:42:55 <IAmNotThatGuy> Okay

    15:43:16 <m4n1sh> dont forget to send LoCo updates to Amber

    15:43:22 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, what action we can take for this? (Grouping all)

    15:43:36 <IAmNotThatGuy> Guys. any suggestions?

    15:43:48 <nigelb> I think we can have a registry of Ubuntu volunteers from India and whom to contact for what

    15:43:53 <droidslayer> Put them on a wiki page

    15:43:57 <droidslayer> Wink ;-)

    15:44:05 <nigelb> Please note that it should be volunteered. No forcing another persons's name on the list

    15:44:19 <droidslayer> Yep

    15:44:19 <IAmNotThatGuy> +1 nigelb

    15:44:26 <m4n1sh> also asking people what they can do for

    15:44:29 <nigelb> If you feel you ahave experieince in say unity hacking, put your name down

    15:44:43 <m4n1sh> like some are very willing to provide help for troubleshooting.. while some cannot

    15:44:54 <nigelb> exactly

    15:45:12 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, so the action will be, creating a page for Indian users to tell their personal contacts and their skills

    15:45:28 <bihari> unity hacking ?

    15:45:29 <droidslayer> No personal contacts please

    15:45:30 <IAmNotThatGuy> right?

    15:45:40 <IAmNotThatGuy> bihari, its an example

    15:45:44 <droidslayer> Email is fine with me

    15:45:45 <nigelb> droidslayer: name and IRC nick?

    15:45:46 <bihari> oh ok

    15:45:58 <droidslayer> nigelb: and email

    15:46:04 <geekosopher> I think first of all, a new user needs to know that there is an active Indian LoCo and that there is way to contribute in the LoCo. How do we do that?

    15:46:04 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, or launchpad account with nick ?

    15:46:19 <droidslayer> No phone numbers :-P

    15:46:21 <nigelb> #action Create a list where people can list their name, skills, and link to wiki page. 15:46:21 * meetingology Create a list where people can list their name, skills, and link to wiki page.

    15:46:24 <m4n1sh> nigelb: LP page too. can use Contact this user

    15:46:41 <IAmNotThatGuy> droidslayer, :P

    15:46:41 <nigelb> m4n1sh: wiki page will have all of the details

    15:46:59 <droidslayer> Yep

    15:47:02 <IAmNotThatGuy> geekosopher, we will discuss it soon =]

    15:47:14 <geekosopher> sure Smile :)

    15:47:17 <nigelb> Another thing would be team reports

    15:47:31 <nigelb> We'd like volunteers to help prepare team reports every month.

    15:47:35 <IAmNotThatGuy> and there should be monthly meetings

    15:47:41 <nigelb> Probably rotate the responsiblity around

    15:47:46 <nigelb> Thoughts on this?

    15:47:47 <geekosopher> +1 nigelb

    15:47:50 <m4n1sh> +1

    15:47:54 <IAmNotThatGuy> +1 right away

    15:47:54 <rahul27> +1

    15:48:03 <droidslayer> I do hate team reports

    15:48:05 <bihari> +1

    15:48:07 <IAmNotThatGuy> lol

    15:48:12 <IAmNotThatGuy> droidslayer, any reasons?

    15:48:18 <nigelb> droidslayer: lol, looks like you have done them before.

    15:48:26 <droidslayer> But... as long as I don't have to prepare those

    15:48:31 <nigelb> droidslayer: I sometimes end up doing 3 a month :/

    15:48:32 <mingo> Hi guys.

    15:53:21 <meetingology> TOPIC: Maintaining a separate wiki(or a category in the existing page) to note all the events happening regarding Ubuntu in India

    15:53:39 <IAmNotThatGuy> mingo, Okies i will check, ask the right person and give you the powers =]

    15:53:51 <mingo> Why a wiki? Anyone with a wordpress account can do that///

    15:54:07 <nigelb> mingo: Because wiki is more open

    15:54:07 <m4n1sh> mingo: you need to add a section on the website in that case

    15:54:12 <IAmNotThatGuy> This is the important thing that we have to do

    15:54:20 <mingo> Yup. I'll do that Monday IST

    15:54:25 <mingo> Eveninng.

    15:54:30 <nigelb> I'd vote using the loco directory for this please?

    15:54:40 <nigelb> We have an Ubuntu resource just for events, so use it. Please.

    15:54:42 <IAmNotThatGuy> as we have many events going on in Indian, people are not aware of what is going on

    15:54:48 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, sure

    15:54:59 <IAmNotThatGuy> thats a good choice

    15:55:18 <mingo> So someone has to inform on the mailing list and we'll put it on right away. Pics would be welcome.

    15:58:12 <nigelb> #topic Mailings list and a new forum moderators team

    15:58:12 <meetingology> TOPIC: Mailings list and a new forum moderators team

    15:58:47 <nigelb> I think we already have pretty good mailing list admins.

    15:58:48 <IAmNotThatGuy> I think we all know about this issue. Our mailings list is not moderated

    15:58:54 <mingo> Wait. I'll show you guys an example..

    15:58:56 <nigelb> IAmNotThatGuy: It is.

    15:58:57 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, moderateD?

    15:59:03 <nigelb> IAmNotThatGuy: Yep.

    15:59:16 <IAmNotThatGuy> hmm! I think I saw some posts wrongly

    15:59:16 <nigelb> IAmNotThatGuy: aanjan does a pretty good job

    15:59:27 <IAmNotThatGuy> ah

    15:59:51 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, Okies then it is good. we have to look for the suggestions regarding Forum

    15:59:51 <m4n1sh> how many people are the admins of mailing list?

    16:00:02 <geekosopher> never saw any problems on mailing list and forums

    16:00:09 <droidslayer> I think I habe

    16:00:11 <rahul27> mingo, how about getting in touch with Linux for You

    16:00:16 <droidslayer> Gah

    16:00:23 <droidslayer> I think I habe a

    16:00:32 <mingo> rahul27: Why?

    16:00:37 <droidslayer> Nvm

    16:00:42 <nigelb> We have 4 admins for the mailining list.

    16:00:43 <rahul27> mingo, instead of booklets

    16:00:51 <mingo> yeah?

    16:00:55 <nigelb> Now, if something is wrong, please talk to them

    16:01:06 <rahul27> we could promote Ubuntu there

    16:01:09 <nigelb> mingo, rahul27: Please keep things on topic to what's being discussed Smile :)

    16:01:33 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, and would you suggest to start a new forum?

    16:01:36 <mingo> sorry nigelb. Got over enthu..

    16:01:40 <IAmNotThatGuy> or the main Ubuntu Forum?

    16:01:41 <nigelb> mingo: heh

    16:01:42 <droidslayer> I wouldn't

    16:01:49 <nigelb> IAmNotThatGuy: No.

    16:01:58 <mingo> Clean the forum. PURGE,,,

    16:01:58 <droidslayer> Why not use ubuntu forums

    16:01:59 <geekosopher> we already have a forum on ubuntu-in right?

    16:02:09 <m4n1sh> well, sadly I still find mailing list and IRC easier to use than forums

    16:02:13 <mingo> yeah we have

    16:02:15 <nigelb> Aren't we using the Ubuntu forums?

    16:02:20 <nigelb> m4n1sh: same here

    16:02:24 <mingo> nope nigelb

    16:02:27 <droidslayer> Get a separate section on ubuntu forums

    16:02:27 <m4n1sh> we have a section in the ubuntu forum?

    16:02:32 <nigelb> So, we don't have a forum?

    16:02:40 <m4n1sh> nigelb: we have on ubuntu-in.info

    16:02:46 <mingo> Purge our own one

    16:02:46 <m4n1sh> but hardly and activity

    16:02:51 <m4n1sh> mingo: +1

    16:02:52 <m4n1sh> no use

    16:03:07 <geekosopher> yes, activity is the problem on ubuntu-in forums

    16:03:07 <m4n1sh> of having seperate one every time if we have say. 5 users

    16:03:14 <m4n1sh> geekosopher: it has to be

    16:03:15 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, then I can say that we should forward all to the main Ubuntu Forums and remove from Ubuntu-in.info

    16:03:36 <m4n1sh> login every time to forums.. probably registering and then forgetting password every other week

    16:03:44 <nigelb> Ok, who wants to investigate into this? 16:04:04 * nigelb looks at droidslayer and/or m4n1sh

    16:04:07 <lut4rp> I personally find ubuntu-in forums to be (now) useless

    16:04:07 <mingo> Let's create separate section in Ubuntu forums. Purging is no use. Its too junk

    16:04:25 <lut4rp> What do you want me to do with them Smile :)

    16:04:26 <nigelb> I'm not too much of a forums person tbh

    16:04:34 <m4n1sh> nigelb: ask lut4rp

    16:04:34 <mingo> mee too

    16:04:35 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, make a vote for removing the forums of ubuntu-in

    16:06:32 <IAmNotThatGuy> geekosopher, any reasons for opposing?

    16:06:32 <droidslayer> lut4rp: lol... you are our channel logger...

    16:06:34 <lut4rp> don't scare me.

    16:06:38 <mingo> yeah. Shut down.

    16:06:46 <lut4rp> do I have to sign in blood or something?

    16:06:54 <geekosopher> IAmNotThatGuy: i am not in the favour of pulling down the content

    16:06:59 <nigelb> lut4rp: Your nick is in red for me coincidentally.

    16:07:00 <mingo> lut4rp: That would be great.

    16:07:09 <lut4rp> geekosopher, content on the forum?

    16:07:12 <IAmNotThatGuy> geekosopher, we will be having the content but not the fourm

    16:07:15 <geekosopher> yes

    16:07:17 <mingo> lut4rp: lolz

    16:07:18 <lut4rp> Is there are "archive-worthy" content on the forum?

    16:07:26 <IAmNotThatGuy> ah

    16:07:29 <m4n1sh> we can seach for archive worthy content

    16:07:31 <m4n1sh> and put them on wiki

    16:07:32 <geekosopher> for whatever its worth

    16:07:33 <lut4rp> yes

    16:07:37 <mingo> lut4rp: yeah some//

    16:07:39 <geekosopher> lut4rp: ^

    16:07:43 <lut4rp> okay, so let's take a week for that

    16:07:47 <lut4rp> for the searching and archiving thing

    16:07:55 <nigelb> lut4rp: Hold off on the pulling for a while so we can get an Ubuntu forum for us

    16:08:03 <lut4rp> eh

    16:08:05 <IAmNotThatGuy> +1 for <m4n1sh> and put them on wiki

    16:08:06 <mingo> lut4rp: Make a tar for people to still access the content.

    16:08:10 <lut4rp> wait, we already *have* a forum

    16:08:12 <geekosopher> lut4rp: yes, we can keep the archives and redirect new ones to ubuntu forums

    16:08:30 <nigelb> lut4rp: yes, but we'll just use the main forum, that's probably more traffic

    16:08:30 <lut4rp> I am saying that we don't need an ubuntu *india* forum

    16:08:31 <mingo> lut4rp: Yeah. Move to Ubuntu forums

    16:08:37 <lut4rp> because ubuntuforums.org serves the purpose

    16:08:39 <nigelb> lut4rp: +1

    16:08:43 <droidslayer> Yep

    16:08:44 <mingo> lut4rp: +1

    16:08:45 <m4n1sh> lut4rp: +1

    16:08:46 <lut4rp> we don't need an India specific forum

    16:08:52 <IAmNotThatGuy> yup

    16:08:54 <lut4rp> OR an india specific subforum

    16:08:58 <lut4rp> we don't need that either

    16:09:02 <m4n1sh> redirect forum.ubuntu-in.info to ubuntuforums.org

    16:09:03 <bihari> lut4rp: +1

    16:09:06 <mingo> lut4rp: That will be done on the mailing lsit/

    16:09:07 <lut4rp> m4n1sh, okay

    16:09:09 <lut4rp> yes

    16:09:16 <lut4rp> all India specific stuff should go on the ML

    16:09:24 <IAmNotThatGuy> and IRC

    16:09:26 <lut4rp> yes

    16:09:27 <lut4rp> ok

    16:09:28 <lut4rp> so

    16:09:28 <nigelb> and askubuntu.com

    16:09:32 <droidslayer> m4n1sh: that's what I said earlier

    16:09:36 <lut4rp> I have to move out

    16:09:44 <lut4rp> so can someone else mail the list with this decision?

    16:09:49 <geekosopher> nigelb: is askubuntu.com official?

    16:09:53 <m4n1sh> geekosopher: yes

    16:09:57 <geekosopher> ok

    16:10:03 <m4n1sh> official Q&A for ubuntu

    16:10:05 <nigelb> geekosopher: Its not a canonical resource though.

    16:10:07 <mingo> yas. It is official

    16:10:08 <lut4rp> a. we will shut down the forum

    16:10:12 <nigelb> err, *Canonical resource

    16:10:14 <mingo> Ok.

    16:10:15 <lut4rp> b. we will redirect to ubuntuforums

    16:10:19 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, have an action for redirecting the forum

    16:10:22 <nigelb> lut4rp: +1

    16:10:24 <m4n1sh> well canonical has put it's employee to work on the design

    16:10:27 <lut4rp> c. everthing india specific goes to IRC/ML

    16:10:38 <nigelb> #action lut4rp to do whatever he just listed out Wink ;)

    16:10:38 * meetingology lut4rp to do whatever he just listed out Wink ;)

    16:11:01 <meetingology> TOPIC: A team to plan events regarding the awareness of Ubuntu around various parts of India

    16:11:22 <mingo> Yeah. Take me. I'm in on this one.

    16:11:22 <IAmNotThatGuy> I think we people are already doing it =]

    16:11:31 <coolbhavi> nigelb, me too

    16:11:39 <m4n1sh> IAmNotThatGuy: the current situation is still not so good

    16:11:46 <mingo> I am already in the process of spreading Ubuntu. Check this: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0BzzTjIT9dTZ0MThiZjUxYjUtYjdhZi00ZTE4LWFjYTAtYmJmYjA3MjRlZTU2&hl=en

    16:11:54 <mingo> Work in progress

    16:11:59 <bihari> well for awareness in india we must aproch to university and colleges of india and conduct some sort of saminar

    16:12:01 <droidslayer> Ok I need to leave as well

    16:12:04 <geekosopher> I think it should go the Ubuntu release party way

    16:12:06 <nigelb> What we could do, is add people interested in this add your names and add an item about interest in spreading Ubuntu.

    16:12:07 <droidslayer> I'll check logs

    16:12:10 <droidslayer> Cya

    16:12:11 <m4n1sh> @ everyone .. we need to goto any engg colleges near our residence/hometown

    16:12:11 <meetingology> m4n1sh: Error: "everyone" is not a valid command.

    16:12:15 <m4n1sh> and give a talk if possible

    16:12:20 <IAmNotThatGuy> m4n1sh, yeah. so, as said at the first point of this agenda, lets combine all of us, and bring it on =]

    16:12:35 <coolbhavi> nigelb, IAmNotThatGuy how about packaging sessions?

    16:12:43 <nigelb> coolbhavi: that works too Smile :)

    16:12:47 <mingo> Someone go for a tv ad?

    16:12:52 <m4n1sh> coolbhavi: cool.

    16:12:56 <m4n1sh> +1 for packaging

    16:13:02 <coolbhavi> nigelb, then m up to it

    16:13:05 <coolbhavi> Smile :)

    16:13:06 <IAmNotThatGuy> coolbhavi, yeah. we will be having a lot of technical sessions too and it will be you, nigelb and droidslayer

    16:13:06 <nigelb> #action Ubuntu IN members to help spread Ubuntu in colleges and schools and workplaces. 16:13:06 * meetingology Ubuntu IN members to help spread Ubuntu in colleges and schools and workplaces.

    16:13:17 <mingo> Schools.. Ok

    16:13:18 <m4n1sh> coolbhavi: in that case we can call some debian people too for teaching packaging

    16:13:21 <m4n1sh> I am looking at rrs

    16:13:30 <droidslayer> Err

    16:13:39 <IAmNotThatGuy> m4n1sh, FYI coolbhavi is a great guy in that

    16:13:39 <coolbhavi> IAmNotThatGuy, m4n1sh sure rrs kart_ etc

    16:13:54 <m4n1sh> coolbhavi: I mean kart_ is not in bangalore

    16:13:55 <m4n1sh> but rrs is

    16:13:56 <droidslayer> Id rather not advise getting debian people

    16:14:03 <m4n1sh> droidslayer: any spl reason?

    16:14:07 <mingo> droidslayer: why?

    16:14:10 <nigelb> Debian people rock generally.

    16:14:14 <droidslayer> Hold o.

    16:14:14 <coolbhavi> IAmNotThatGuy, DD's are great

    16:14:19 <nigelb> At least the ones I know do.

    16:14:20 <m4n1sh> droidslayer: I knw rrs personally.. He is very much affectionate towards ubuntu

    16:14:25 <nigelb> m4n1sh: +1

    16:14:32 <m4n1sh> me and nigelb have met him

    16:14:37 <nigelb> He came to our Ubuntu hour!

    16:14:41 <nigelb> Kartik is awesome too.

    16:14:43 <bihari> we must write a letter to CBSE and some other state board to have a seprate chapter inside computers books on opensource

    16:14:46 <mingo> whu's rrs? Please anyone?

    16:14:47 <nigelb> We've talked a few times.

    16:14:48 <m4n1sh> nigelb: after you people left that Ubuntu Hour.. me and rrs talked together on ubuntu for some 2 hours

    16:14:54 <IAmNotThatGuy> Okay

    16:14:55 <coolbhavi> nigelb, +1

    16:14:58 <nigelb> mingo: He's a Debian Developer in Bangalore.

    16:15:00 <IAmNotThatGuy> we have a point from bihari

    16:15:00 <geekosopher> we should concentrate on spreading the userbase first then the developer base

    16:15:02 <nigelb> Anyway, we're off topic

    16:15:03 <IAmNotThatGuy> GUYS

    16:15:04 <mingo> Tahnks

    16:15:08 <nigelb> Lets move on

    16:15:08 <m4n1sh> yeah

    16:15:09 <shadeslayer> ok so

    16:15:15 <shadeslayer> just to clarify

    16:15:15 <m4n1sh> +1 for first userbase and then developer base

    16:15:18 <nigelb> shadeslayer: after the meeting.

    16:15:19 <m4n1sh> or together

    16:15:27 <m4n1sh> but userbase gets higher preference

    16:15:28 <shadeslayer> nigelb: i wont be available then

    16:15:28 <nigelb> #topic Contribute to the community by development, bug triaging, help and distribute

    16:15:28 <meetingology> TOPIC: Contribute to the community by development, bug triaging, help and distribute

    16:15:32 <bihari> i mean we can send an e-mail to CBSE and state Board chairman

    16:15:47 <IAmNotThatGuy> bihari, okies. just wait =]

    16:16:00 <bihari> to have a 1 chapter on open source specually ubuntu - linux

    16:16:03 <coolbhavi> nigelb, I think you can handle the topic Smile :)

    16:16:04 <nigelb> There are a few of us active in different parts of the community.

    16:16:14 <shadeslayer> DD's are great, but they expect a level of expertise from whom theyre teaching, so bringing in DD's to teach new people is a bad idea imho

    16:16:15 <nigelb> coolbhavi is involved with packging

    16:16:21 <Ramakrishna_cse> there is an free OS developed by Govt of India

    16:16:26 <mingo> BOSSS

    16:16:30 <Ramakrishna_cse> it is called Bharat Operating system

    16:16:31 <Ramakrishna_cse> yes

    16:16:32 <geekosopher> distribute yes, but for triaging and developing, I think we should leave it to non-loco teams

    16:16:38 <nigelb> PEOPLE! Topic Smile :)

    16:16:44 <IAmNotThatGuy> Ramakrishna_cse, please stay with the topic

    16:16:51 <IAmNotThatGuy> nigelb, (:

    16:17:03 <nigelb> geekosopher: Yes, but that doesn't stop at having session by our loco team memberes

    16:17:03 <m4n1sh> out topic right now is development, bug traiging and packaging

    16:17:04 <shadeslayer> cya

    16:17:13 <coolbhavi> shadeslayer, +1 mate they expect you to know atleast /debian dir Smile :)

    16:17:20 <shadeslayer> coolbhavi: yep

    16:17:34 <bihari> yes if we want's revolution in FOSS we must encrouge teen agers and IT industry to adopt FOSS

    16:17:51 <coolbhavi> m4n1sh, sure shadeslayer you can also step in

    16:17:54 <m4n1sh> yeah

    16:17:56 <m4n1sh> great

    16:18:01 <m4n1sh> we have kde packagers too

    16:18:21 <geekosopher> for distribution, I liked that wiki page listing people ready to share their cds

    16:18:25 <m4n1sh> shadeslayer: yes I know

    16:18:30 <coolbhavi> nigelb, what about slytherin?

    16:18:32 <shadeslayer> oh ok :P
