The chair is airurando. <MootBot> Commands Available: [TOPIC], [IDEA], [ACTION], [AGREED], [LINK], [VOTE] <airurando> Good evening everyone and thanks for attending <airurando> If you are here for the monthly meeting please indicate so by typing “PRESENT” <airurando> PRESENT <infoturtle> PRESENT <moylan> PRESENT <ebel> PRESENT <airurando> The wiki page for this meeting is here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2011-07-20 <tdr112> PRESENT <airurando> [LINK] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2011-07-20 <MootBot> LINK received: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2011-07-20 <airurando> on to the agenda items <airurando> [TOPIC] Review of previous action items <MootBot> New Topic: Review of previous action items <airurando> During the June meeting there was one task actioned. <airurando> czajkowski to ask BK <airurando> more specifically <airurando> czajkowski to ask Blacknight to extend their sponsored hosting offer for our website * ebel must apologise <airurando> as far as I am aware this was done and we got a positive response from BK <ebel> i haven't looked into the BK and told czajkowski what she needs <ebel> BK have sponsored another year of hosting for us <tdr112> good stuff <airurando> yes indeed thanks to BK <airurando> ebel: what needs to be done? <ebel> i need to tell czajkowski who wil tell canonical sysadmins the ip address of the bk hosting <ebel> so they can change www.ubuntu-ie.org to point to thr bk hosting <airurando> is everything set up on the BK side? <ebel> the people redoing our hosting (can't remember names) said it's easier if the real domains pointed over <ebel> as of last meeting, bk hosting wasn't configured yet <airurando> I don't understand the detail <airurando> id we point from one to the next and the next isn't ready won't we have downtime? <ebel> yes there would be downtimes <airurando> hmm <airurando> what to do? <ebel> the people volunteering said it would be ~ weekend <ebel> it only occured to me afterwards about downtime <ebel> (after irc meeting) <czajkowski> ebel: yes just mail me and I'll file the RT <airurando> is it to hard to get the whole thing set up on BK and then get canonical to do the forwarding thing? <czajkowski> I dont know the bk side of things <ebel> yes, you could put the ip address in your /etc/hosts <czajkowski> the Canonical side is an email and can take a few days or hours depending on how busy they are <ebel> which lets you 'pretend' that www.ubuntu-ie.org is at BK for just your machine, everyone else sees the old one <airurando> ebel: can you define the steps to be taken from this point to effect a smooth transition. * ebel can't remember if he mentioned this at the last irc meeting * airurando can't either <ebel> someone check logs for who offered to do the hosting <ebel> tis a bit silly talking about it without them * airurando doesn't understand anyway <airurando> infoturtle wern't you and thethomaseffect involved? <infoturtle> I was ages ago but there has been work since without me and I'm unsure where things are at <airurando> at a high level (keep it simple for me please...) <airurando> should the webmasters not get thinks fully set up on BK hosting first? <airurando> *things <ebel> cost benefit trade offs <airurando> oh crikey I don't even understand that.... <ebel> also abilities. things that make things easier for one party can make things harder for others <airurando> how can we move this forward? <ebel> who's doing the web hosting? <airurando> blacknight <airurando> isn't that right? <ebel> and no matter what i do need to tell czajkowski details for our hosting <ebel> yes, BK are doing hosting. i meant who in ubuntu-ie is our web maintainer? who's setting it up?P <airurando> thethomaseffect? <infoturtle> it was me and thethomaseffect but I think he's done more on it since I last helped, which was months ago <airurando> shall we shelve it? <airurando> seems a bit like rock and hard place to me. <ebel> no point in you & me deciding what someone else will do, that person needs to be here to talk about it <airurando> cool <airurando> shelved * ebel suggests waiting till we can talk to web hoster * ebel should refresh his memory from minutes] <airurando> moving on * ebel is very unprepared <airurando> [TOPIC] Oneiric Ocelot Ubuntu Global Jam <MootBot> New Topic: Oneiric Ocelot Ubuntu Global Jam <airurando> I raised this item. <tdr112> when is it <airurando> Ubuntu Global Jam for Oneiric Ocelot takes place from 2nd to 4th of September. <airurando> I just thought we should start planning for it now. <airurando> Details of this Global event can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam <airurando> [LINK] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam <MootBot> LINK received: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam <airurando> It would be great to keep both Dublin and Limerick up and running and if possible even add to them. <airurando> I believe the more we participate in these Jams the more productive we will become during them. <airurando> Thoughts anyone? <infoturtle> agreed <infoturtle> I love them despite not helping much <infoturtle> more that come the better <airurando> infoturtle will you lead Limerick again? <ebel> ++ <Carles-091labs> Sorry new... I'll ask around 091labs for any interest <Carles-091labs> I mean I'm new here <airurando> Carles-091labs welcome! <infoturtle> sure, I can see who I can talk to, UL is out till sept 5th AFAIK so I duno how I can do this <airurando> It would be great if something was set up for Galway * airurando loves Galway <airurando> went to College there in the 80s and 90s <ebel> Carles-091labs: welcome! no apology needed. anything we can do to help, jsut ask <Carles-091labs> lots of our members use Ubuntu as our main OS. Hopefully will get some interest <airurando> Carles-091labs that is great <moylan> what are the numbers at the current 2 locations at the last jam. by having more locations are we not lessening the numbers that turn up at those locations? <airurando> have a look at the wiki page detailed above <tdr112> i will ask if tog will host the dublin one again or we can try some where new <airurando> and as ebel said let us know if we can be of any help <Carles-091labs> having a look at the wiki as we speak <infoturtle> moylan: there were 5 at the limerick one, none of us would have made it to Dublin for it <airurando> tdr112 tog would be great <czajkowski> infoturtle: 5 is better than none <airurando> moylan limerick of Galway folk are less likely to attend Dublin anyway <czajkowski> and its nice to have an alternative venue <ebel> 5 is a decent umber <ebel> think we had 3 or 4 in dub :P <moylan> no arguements there but i worry that if there is a galway one there will be less than 5 at limerick <infoturtle> czajkowski of course, thus why multi location is a good idea <airurando> I think it would be great to get better communication streams up between locations <Carles-091labs> what would be the best way to communicate <infoturtle> moylan: all the ones at the limerick one were from Limerick <infoturtle> Don't think they'll go to Galway for one <moylan> fair enough! i sit corrected :-) <airurando> Carles-091labs at the mo all we have is IRC <airurando> we toyed with the idea of ebel on Ustream last time <infoturtle> I don't mean to belittle, I just can't track to Dublin for them and like the set up <Carles-091labs> would be nice to have some video streaming on the day... ustream stream perhaps? <czajkowski> it worked well the last day 1 day face to face <czajkowski> and if we want to do more <czajkowski> we can all do stuff via irc <czajkowski> at the end of the day we're all on irc to help one another over the day <airurando> and as always <airurando> we can build on things global Jam to global Jam <tdr112> i can set up a ustream for the day or skype <infoturtle> that would be great <airurando> I think it would be brilliant to get the three location up and running :) <tdr112> so are thinking one day in person and one day one irc again <airurando> Carles-091labs can I action you to investigate the possibility of hosting one in Galway <airurando> no pressure <Carles-091labs> hosting what exacly? <tdr112> a bug jam <airurando> Carles-091labs aye a Ubuntu Global Jam <airurando> hosting/holding/having one. <Carles-091labs> I'm going to try to get people interestd <tdr112> a one day event , one go from about 10 am until about 5 or 6 pm <airurando> Carles-091labs cool <Carles-091labs> but it may be just myself :P <airurando> could you report back at next months meeting? <Carles-091labs> ok <tdr112> Carles-091labs: no worrys <airurando> thanks <airurando> infoturtle: can I action you with leading limerick? <airurando> tdr112: can I action you with asking TOG? <Carles-091labs> Going need a bit on the day... never actually tackle any bug fixing before... <tdr112> yes <infoturtle> yep <infoturtle> I'll see who I can talk to in the colleage about it <airurando> Carles-091labs It really doesn't matter what's achieved <airurando> have fun and learn <ebel> great way to meet people face to face <Carles-091labs> cool... perhaps a tiny bug fixing for starters <tdr112> infoturtle: or milklabs <airurando> [ACTION] infoturtle will organise UGJ Limerick. <MootBot> ACTION received: infoturtle will organise UGJ Limerick. <infoturtle> tdr112: true, I'll ask around <airurando> [ACTION] tdr112 will ask TOG to once again host UGJ Dublin <MootBot> ACTION received: tdr112 will ask TOG to once again host UGJ Dublin <Carles-091labs> in the wiki says from the 2 to the 4...
