    15:41:27 <meetingology> TOPIC: Previous action items

    15:41:55 <nigelb> I had a bunch of action items from last time which I haven't been able to get to.

    15:42:29 <nigelb> neither Mohi or mingo is here

    15:42:42 <tazz> /

    15:42:52 <nigelb> But mingo updated the list that he's having exams and he won't be able to deal with the website for some time.

    15:42:58 <geekosopher> mingo already took the leave i guess

    15:43:03 <nigelb> I'm looking at action items at this link btw https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IndianTeam/Meetings/20101217

    15:43:21 <nigelb> lut4rp: ping

    15:43:31 <nigelb> lut4rp: Hey, were you able to find time to shut down the forums?

    15:43:44 <nigelb> I spoke to lut4rp last month and he said there wasn't much to glean from the forums.

    15:44:06 <geekosopher> hmm

    15:44:15 <nigelb> Anyone else left over from last topic?

    15:44:33 <coolbhavi> nigelb, on packaging sessions?

    15:46:36 <geekosopher> ok

    15:46:50 <nigelb> I think next time I'll get it more organized.

    15:49:06 <nigelb> We'd like your help in getting word out about the sessions since they are all user oriented

    15:49:15 <geekosopher> but how do we involve our loco in it, or is it not intended to be?

    15:49:16 <nigelb> A lot of sessions will be beginner friendly too.

    15:49:32 <nigelb> geekosopher: We'd like the locos to spread the word out and get people to attend

    15:49:41 <geekosopher> ok

    16:08:04 <coolbhavi> +1

    16:08:29 <arjunaraoc> I did couple of months back. There is slight response recently

    16:10:52 <nigelb> Well, it seemed to be overly focused on people developing *on* Ubuntu particularly hardware manufactureres

    16:10:53 <coolbhavi> yes on a weekday

    16:10:58 <m4n1sh> yeah

    16:10:59 <geekosopher> mumbaikars should be green with envy with all the events happening in Banglore

    16:11:32 <nigelb> I'm having second thoughts about attending, but I might go for it. maybe.

    16:11:54 <m4n1sh> with his/her experiences

    16:11:56 <nigelb> I'll do that then.

    16:12:06 <lut4rp> back

    16:12:07 <nigelb> If somone would like to go, get in touch with me.

    16:13:05 <lut4rp> But everyone is with me?

    16:13:11 <lut4rp> that we *do* have to shut them down?

    16:13:42 <m4n1sh> only one -1

    16:13:46 <m4n1sh> and rest all was +1

    16:13:52 <lut4rp> yeah ok

    16:14:08 <lut4rp> so do I just take them down?

    16:14:16 <lut4rp> or is there anything "archive worthy"

    16:14:16 <nigelb> yeah, go ahead Smile :)

    16:14:29 <nigelb> lut4rp: I thought you told me there wasn't much archive worthy

    16:14:36 <lut4rp> yes, I dont think there is
