<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
