Started logging meeting in #ubuntu-ie [14:04:38] <ebel> [link] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2011-06-15 [14:04:42] <ebel> our agenda [14:04:54] <ebel> [topic] Review of previous action items [14:04:59] <ebel> who wants to talk on that? [14:05:26] <airurando> there was only one from may [14:06:21] <airurando> ebel tog, dublin meetup 2pm saturday for hackathon to work on reapproval page [14:06:54] <airurando> tdr112 and I did meet up at TOG with czajkowski online [14:07:04] <airurando> progress was made. [14:07:09] <tdr112> a lot of work done more to do [14:07:13] <infoturtle> hooray for progress! [14:07:24] <airurando> I know ebel did some fancy work also on the reapproval page [14:07:36] * tdr112 still has to do the work he said he would [14:07:44] <airurando> page is at: [14:07:46] <airurando> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IrishTeamReApprovalApplication [14:07:48] <ebel> cool [14:08:05] <ebel> (re-approval is later on agenda, we can talk then) [14:08:15] <airurando> exactly [14:08:21] <airurando> just about to say that.

[14:11:38] <infoturtle> good to hear it went well [14:11:44] <airurando> photos here: http://pix.ie/ubuntuie/album/412636 [14:12:18] <airurando> 3DCamp was very enjoyable and while the geeknic was short and small it was good fun. [14:13:09] <airurando> I recommend this kind of regional event whenever the opportunity arises. [14:13:44] <airurando> tdr112 gave a presentation at this barcamp and he was excellent. [14:14:11] <airurando> details of the event can be found at http://3dcamp.barcamp.ie/ [14:14:27] <airurando> that it for this one from me.

[14:17:26] <airurando> Dublin I suppose? [14:18:09] <airurando> leaving out the bank holiday leaves: [14:18:22] <airurando> 12,13,14th [14:18:34] <airurando> 19,20,21st [14:18:45] <airurando> 26,27,28th [14:19:17] <infoturtle> just starting the ball here, I'm down for any of those and will make this one [14:19:23] <slashtom> poll it? [14:19:25] <infoturtle> not picky on the date [14:19:34] <slashtom> doodle [14:19:35] <infoturtle> poll might be best [14:19:42] <airurando> yeah we can doodle. [14:19:54] <slashtom> location? [14:20:00] <airurando> do we agree to leave the bank holiday off the list? [14:20:06] <slashtom> aye [14:20:07] <infoturtle> sure [14:20:19] <airurando> slashtom: location suggestion? [14:20:46] <infoturtle> I've always been a fan of easter island, but it's a bit away [14:21:10] <airurando> tdr112 any ideas? [14:21:18] <slashtom> how about walk then geeknic? [14:21:26] <slashtom> greystones to bray? [14:21:41] <airurando> how far is that? [14:21:59] <slashtom> iirc tdr112 has done that walk [14:22:05] <ebel> 1 or 2 hr walk iirc [14:22:11] * ebel off phone [14:22:13] <airurando> and geeknic in Bray? [14:22:19] <airurando> back to you ebel [14:22:26] <slashtom> or greystones, both have dart stations [14:22:35] <tdr112> gtg [14:23:08] <airurando> I'm happy with whatever is decided [14:23:10] <infoturtle> sounds like a class plan! [14:23:38] <ebel> [agreed] poll for date of august geeknic [14:23:46] * airurando only has small chance of making this one anyway) [14:24:28] <airurando> I'll set up the poll (assuming it is easy) I'll chat to slashtom if I get stuck [14:24:31] <ebel> location as a poll? people might add new ones? [14:24:36] <ebel> doodle is very easy to use and set up [14:25:05] <airurando> weather was ebel will you do it so please [14:25:17] <ebel> i'll do the poll(s) [14:25:21] <ebel> next topic? [14:25:28] <airurando> yeah [14:25:30] <ebel> [topic] LoCo Reapproval Application update [14:25:49] <airurando> some discussion earlier. [14:25:56] <airurando> now to the nitty gritty [14:26:10] <airurando> I reckon the experience section is good as is. [14:26:45] <airurando> I believe we need to fleash out the roadmap section as much as we are comfortable with. [14:27:05] <airurando> I suggest keeping it very high level [14:27:29] <airurando> tdr112 has this on his to do list but I think we should all chip in [14:28:37] <czajkowski> aloha [14:28:49] <airurando> czajkowski chatted to me on this recently [14:28:49] <ebel> FYI I got an email from launchpad saying ubuntu-ie will expire from approved-team group in a few days [14:29:22] <ebel> on 2011-06-22. i'm guessing that's 2 years after we approved [14:29:30] <czajkowski> yes [14:29:30] <airurando> I reckon we should complete the roadmap and submit shortly [14:29:31] <ebel> i wouldn't worry about it too much [14:29:41] <czajkowski> well ye will expire on the 22nd [14:29:51] <infoturtle> oh no [14:29:51] <czajkowski> but the meeting is the day before so we can go before re approval then [14:29:53] <infoturtle> all of us? [14:30:01] <czajkowski> or we can give ye a months grace [14:30:04] <czajkowski> infoturtle: the team..... [14:30:07] <airurando> should we try to get the submission in for next Tuesdays meeting? [14:30:19] <czajkowski> tbh the wiki is in great shape and I say yes [14:30:48] <airurando> great stuff. [14:30:51] <airurando> ebel? [14:30:56] <airurando> slashtom?

[14:36:04] <ebel> well if i don't have to do anything.... [14:37:35] <czajkowski> nope [14:37:40] <airurando> I'll hook up with tdr112 before the weekend [14:37:42] <czajkowski> the wiki is a really good aplication [14:38:05] <airurando> ebel if you could review and submit on Monday [14:38:07] <ebel> though if we can wait, we might get more people at the IRC meeting.... [14:38:20] <ebel> more to time to organise people to get them there [14:38:30] <czajkowski> as long as it's in the hour before the meeting tis fine [14:39:19] <airurando> we can start plugging it tonight [14:39:25] <airurando> 6 days left [14:39:26] <czajkowski> aye [14:39:38] <airurando> surely thats enough time no?

[14:42:21] <czajkowski> well we have 2 options. [14:42:24] <tdr112> i think we need more time [14:42:29] <czajkowski> 1) add the wiki application to the bug [14:42:41] <czajkowski> 2) we extend the time by a month or so [14:43:08] <czajkowski> so up to ye really [14:43:12] <czajkowski> honestly [14:43:15] <airurando> tdr112: what do you think is lacking [14:43:24] <czajkowski> given I look at these the whole time, the wiki page is in fantastic shape [14:43:25] <czajkowski> tis clear [14:43:30] <czajkowski> details all th work [14:44:40] <ebel> majority seems to be in favour...

[14:53:50] <airurando> ok [14:53:52] <ebel> [topic] ubuntu-ie.org hosting options [14:54:19] <airurando> I put this up after ebel's mail [14:54:27] <czajkowski> well I can ask BK to do it again if we like [14:54:43] <ebel> we can [14:54:45] <czajkowski> I know thethomaseffect asked about domains names to be pointed but we needed to confirm the hosting [14:54:55] <ebel> cause our BK sponsored hosting is due to expire soon [14:54:59] <czajkowski> and then a mail to be sent to RT@ubuntu.com which I'll sort [14:55:04] <infoturtle> I was working on that too and then got stuck with it [14:55:04] <ebel> a few people (on the mailing list) have offered hosting [14:55:17] <czajkowski> nods [14:55:19] <airurando> yeah [14:55:26] <airurando> appreciated for sure [14:55:33] <ebel> However we need a webmaster/webmistriss not a host.... [14:55:51] <czajkowski> well we have 2 people working on a site [14:55:52] <thethomaseffect> Apologies, I'm here [14:55:52] <czajkowski> :s [14:55:56] <czajkowski> ah ha [14:55:57] <czajkowski> :) [14:55:59] <czajkowski> thethomaseffect: aloha [14:56:02] <ebel> i have forgotten what was going on with the web hosting... [14:56:05] <thethomaseffect> Hallo :) [14:56:42] <czajkowski> I need someone to tell me what dns to point to where so I can resolve that issue [14:56:56] <ebel> what's the problem with DNS? [14:57:21] <czajkowski> ebel: I dont know it was mentoned in here by thethomaseffect [14:57:26] <czajkowski> I assumed to point to new hosting [14:58:12] <ebel> thethomaseffect: can you give an update on the new hosting? [14:58:26] <thethomaseffect> The address needed is somewhere in the blacknight CP I'm quite positive, but since I've no experience in repointing domains I wouldn't be entirely certain [14:58:37] <thethomaseffect> ebel: Sure, any parts in particular? [14:59:50] <airurando> All well above my head. [14:59:54] <ebel> well, i dunno... eh is it ready to go live? what have you done with it? how does it compare to the old hosting? [15:00:30] <czajkowski> thethomaseffect: have you seen http://launchpad.net/ubuntu-community-webthemes [15:00:45] <ebel> should we contact BK and ask if they can renew the hosting? or what? [15:00:53] <thethomaseffect> I seen mention yesterday that ubuntu uk use wordpress instead of drupal. Wordpress is a lot easier to maintain and would fit the site better, since it's mostly used for news. I think since it's not an issue to archive the old site at archive.ubuntu-ie.org it would be a good move to use it. [15:01:19] <thethomaseffect> czajkowski: Had a quick look, though design isn't an issue as soon as domain is repointed [15:01:52] <czajkowski> the only reason I would chose BK is well we have some of them on here and on the ML [15:01:53] <ebel> you don't *need* to change DNS / repoint domains to test. You can edit /etc/hosts (if that's what's blocking you) [15:01:58] <czajkowski> and it's nice to support irish [15:02:06] <thethomaseffect> ebel: I've done a theme, I'm cautious of installing any CMS unless it's on the domain that'll be the one used in the live version [15:02:28] <ebel> once we have it ready, we can repoint the DNS to the new server [15:02:52] <ebel> do/did you have access to the blacknight hosting to set things up? [15:02:57] <thethomaseffect> couldn't I just put up an under consturuction page and link back to old site? [15:03:07] <airurando> czajkowski: will you ask BK as you offered? [15:03:12] <czajkowski> yup [15:03:14] <czajkowski> can do [15:03:23] <airurando> great stuff. [15:03:34] <airurando> ebel action for czajkowski [15:03:45] <ebel> [agreed] ask BK for more hosting [15:03:47] <ebel> [action] [15:03:54] <ebel> [action] czajkowski to ask BK [15:04:34] <ebel> thethomaseffect: well we /could/, but that's not very user freindly, and you can install any CMS on the BK hosting and then we can send users over when it's ready? [15:06:01] <thethomaseffect> ebel: In the installation, all the links will be pointing at the wrong address. It'll be the absolute one rather than the one that'll be used. It's not good from a security perspective. It's possible there'll be no issue but what can go wrong, will [15:06:34] <thethomaseffect> once the domain is repointed, unless i have personal stuff, i'm confident i can have most stuff migrated in just 48 hours [15:07:11] <czajkowski> ok so atm, don;t we have access to the hosting [15:07:16] <czajkowski> so can we try it out [15:07:48] <ebel> yeah [15:07:57] <tdr112> Kill all Zombies [15:08:03] <ebel> we ourselves can't change the DNS, we need canonical to do that. [15:08:10] <thethomaseffect> myself and infoturtle ran into PHP issues while trying to set things up on the absolute url also. We could reach a index.htl but not a drupal/install.php [15:08:33] <czajkowski> ebel: see that there is the info I need [15:08:37] <czajkowski> if you tell me what you need changed [15:08:45] <czajkowski> I'll do the mail and go talk to IS to get it done [15:08:49] <ebel> thethomaseffect: you have access to the BK hosting, right? can you start looking at installing things? [15:08:56] <thethomaseffect> once the somain is sorted out I'm sure it won't be an issue, my own hosting is blacknight and it was smooth sailing installing drupal and wordpress [15:08:58] <czajkowski> but I am cluseless as to what you want DNS changed to [15:09:08] <ebel> (I'm trying to make sure I'm not blocking anything) [15:09:31] <thethomaseffect> ebel: like i said, i did, and can't until there's a domain [15:09:59] * czajkowski is lost [15:10:07] <ebel> right, so ubunut-ie.org and www.ubuntu-ie.org need to point to the new blacknight host then? [15:10:13] <ebel> (any other domains) [15:10:23] <thethomaseffect> aye [15:10:31] <czajkowski> ok [15:10:34] <thethomaseffect> and afaik no [15:10:41] <ebel> I'll figure out the details fromk BK, then send them to czajkowski. who can pass that email onto canonical/whoever (since they know who) [15:10:53] <ebel> then we'll tell ye and ye should be good to go? [15:11:10] <czajkowski> ebel: thanks [15:11:19] <czajkowski> if you tell me what I'll email it and then get it done ASAP [15:11:26] <ebel> kewl [15:12:23] <ebel> sorted [15:12:27] <ebel> next topic? [15:12:44] <airurando> yip [15:12:47] <ebel> [topic] Launchpad team are sprinting in Dublin (from tdr112) [15:12:54] <czajkowski> :D [15:14:28] <ebel> tdr112 around?
