 19:35:16 <airurando> evening all and welcome to this 03 Apr 13 Ubuntu Ireland Team IRC meeting

 19:35:27 <airurando> The agenda for this meeting can be found at:

 19:35:27 <tdr112> here

 19:35:38 <airurando> http://loco.ubuntu.com/meetings/ubuntu-ie/566/detail/

 19:35:45 <airurando> If you are here to attend the meeting please indicate so by typing PRESENT

 19:35:50 <airurando> PRESENT

 19:35:53 <andru183> PRESENT

 19:36:02 <airurando> wait for it tdr112

 19:36:06 <airurando> :-)

 19:36:34 <victor9098> PRESENT

 19:36:46 <zmoylan> PRESENT

 19:36:47 <airurando> Only one item on the agenda for discussion so lets get to it.

 19:37:02 <airurando> #topic Regarding Raring Ringtailed Racoon Release Revelries

 19:37:09 <tdr112> PRESENT

 19:37:30 <airurando> So I was wondering would we like to host any Release Parties for Raring and if so when and where?

 19:38:06 <airurando> I would hope we'd host at least one Release Party.

 19:38:22 <airurando> Is there any interest in this?

 19:38:26 <andru183> We host one in UL no prob

 19:38:51 <airurando> nice one andru183

 19:38:53 <andru183> I'm not on the comp soc anymore but the lads will host one for sure

 19:39:12 <airurando> will you take care of that?

 19:39:25 <airurando> getting the details up on the LTP?

 19:39:28 <andru183> can do of course

 19:39:41 <airurando> great stuff

 19:40:03 <airurando> I'd love it if there was a release party also held in Dublin

 19:40:21 <zmoylan> if there were one in dublin how many here would turn up?

 19:40:21 <airurando> I sincerely hope to be able to attend but it will depend on a few things falling into place for me.

 19:40:44 <airurando> zmoylan I'd love to

 19:40:50 <tdr112> I cant am away that time

 19:41:07 <zmoylan> me too but i can't guarantee it either

 19:41:24 <airurando> but it depends on how the leg is doing, my return to work and my return to driving.

 19:41:52 <airurando> Victor9098

 19:42:39 <airurando> Victor9098 would you be interested in being the anchor member for a Dublin Release party.

 19:43:06 <airurando> nothing major. Just could you guarantee being present for the party

 19:43:46 <airurando> Of all the parties I have attended the two I thought were most fun were 10.10 in the market bar and 11.10 in the Porterhouse in Templebar.

 19:44:07 <airurando> I'd vote for a return to the Porterhouse in Templebar.

 19:44:19 <airurando> Victor9098 would you be interested in being the anchor member for a Dublin Release party.

 19:44:30 <airurando> nothing major. Just could you guarantee being present for the party

 19:45:10 <airurando> Victor9098 we have no one present at the meeting who can say for certain they will be there

 19:45:40 <airurando> It would be great if you could take the lead on this

 19:45:49 <victor9098> I can't promise anything at the moment, my vehicle is off the road and trying to get a replacement

 19:46:01 <airurando> no problem

 19:46:05 <airurando> hmmmmm

 19:46:51 <airurando> of the people here who might go to a Dublin party would the Porterhouse in Templebar be an acceptable venue?

 19:47:46 <zmoylan> never been there i don't think. need to find it on map but should be able to reach on crutch

 19:47:54 <victor9098> Looks pretty on Google

 19:48:10 <tdr112> its a nice pub

 19:48:43 <zmoylan> yeah, i can make it there. http://www.yelp.ie/biz/the-porterhouse-temple-bar-dublin-3

 19:49:05 <airurando> great

 19:49:32 <zmoylan> name a time and date and i'll do my utmost to make it.

 19:49:56 <airurando> I reckon Saturday after the release for Dublin

 19:50:21 <zmoylan> would it be quieter/preferable on a sunday?

 19:51:21 <airurando> would that be more limiting in terms of attendance?

 19:51:44 <victor9098> Should hit up Canonical for a stall and set-up in Temple Bar :-D

 19:51:47 <zmoylan> i'm easy, just pointing out that saturday in temple bar is their busy time

 19:52:03 <airurando> indeed zmoylan

 19:52:06 <zmoylan> a penguin costume handing out disks in front of central bank :-)

 19:52:18 <airurando> i don't know

 19:52:46 <airurando> Saturday night is busy for a reason as it is the night folks like to party

 19:53:32 <airurando> I'm happy to try a Sunday slot

 19:53:45 <airurando> tdr112 would you be around on Sunday evening?

 19:53:57 <tdr112> what date

 19:53:59 <zmoylan> whatever others want i'm happy to go along with. sunday was just a thought

 19:54:08 <airurando> 28th

 19:54:26 <victor9098> No partying for me, hour drive in and home (if I can get sorted)

 19:54:56 <airurando> victor9098: orange juice?

 19:55:04 <tdr112> sorry flying back from newcaste , i am at maker faire that weekend

 19:55:22 <zmoylan> i'm on public transport for an hour either way. stone cold sober for that :-D

 19:55:44 <victor9098> :-D Safety first

 19:56:00 <airurando> victor9098: would you prefer a sat or sun party?

 19:56:05 <zmoylan> saturday 27th i have an rpg game that would make it difficult to attend. standing game for last saturday of month

 19:56:27 <zmoylan> that's why i have missed last few. :-/

 19:56:28 <airurando> settled so

 19:56:51 <zmoylan> time then?

 19:57:05 <airurando> as you are the MOST likely to attend I reckon it your decision

 19:57:15 <airurando> Sunday at 8pm

 19:57:17 <airurando> ?

 19:57:21 <zmoylan> works for me

 19:57:37 <victor9098> If I can get in I will drop in either/both. Partial to a Sun brew myself, but since I might not even turn up stick with a Sat night party. Might be light on the Ubuntu loaded laptops though

 19:57:38 <airurando> maybe tdr112 could drop in on his way home from the airport

 19:58:13 <airurando> victor9098: I think Sunday has been decided upon

 19:58:21 <tdr112> :) dont land until 22.30

 19:58:32 <airurando> :-)

 19:58:56 <airurando> zmoylan would an earlier start be more preferable

 19:59:08 <airurando> say 7pm till 10pm?

 19:59:12 <zmoylan> would it make it better for anyone else?

 19:59:55 <airurando> victor9098: would a 7pm till 10pm party suit you better that a party starting at 8pm?

 20:00:23 <victor9098> Early start I reckon, especially for those of use travelling a distance

 20:00:35 <zmoylan> 7-10 it is

 20:00:35 <victor9098> Dinner in Zaytoons beforehand, yummy :-D

 20:00:36 <airurando> I was just thinking an early start early finish party on a Sun would be better

 20:01:16 <airurando> victor9098: single venue for simplicity

 20:02:05 <airurando> can arrange Zaytoons at a later date for pre party munchies. :-)

 20:02:38 <victor9098> Well, if I can make it I will send an email about it before the day

 20:03:14 <airurando> will we just go with the Porterhouse TempleBar from 7pm till 10pm on Sunday 28 Apr 13 so?

 20:03:23 <zmoylan> sounds the easiest

 20:03:25 <victor9098> Vote?

 19:34 <airurando> Great stuff! Now on to the agenda items in order.

 19:34 <airurando> #topic Summary of successful 2013 reapproval

 19:34 <tdr112> big thanks to airurando on this

 19:35 <ebel> Yeah, fair play airurando

 19:35 <airurando> :-)

 19:35 <airurando> thanks

 19:35 <mokmeister> Yes indeed, great stuff, thanks

 19:35 <tdr112> he did a great job leanding us forward

 19:35 <airurando> Our Teams approval status expired at the end of June (at the moment, approved status lasts only 2 years and needs to be reapplied for at the time of expiry)

 19:35 <zmoylan> and creating all the wiki pages for it, thanks airurando

 19:35 <airurando> We applied for reapproval at the LoCo Council meeting on 16 Jul 13

 19:36 <airurando> Minutes and Logs of the meeting can be found at:

 19:36 <airurando> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCouncil/Minutes/20130716

 19:37 <airurando> We were the third and last team up for reapproval. Two very impressive teams preceeded us (The Japanese Team and the Tunisian Team).

 19:37 <zmoylan> yeah, it was like 5am for the japanese team

 19:37 <airurando> Thanks to vic9098 who provided some valuable input during the preparation of the application

 19:38 <vic9098> lies i tell ya

 19:38 <airurando> tdr112, zmoylan and of course czajkowski gave great support to my luke warm efforts to promote the Irish LoCo.

 19:38 <Bpb101> Sorry I missed that folk , Got mixed up on the days :P

 19:38 <tdr112> np

 19:38 <ebel> yeah, sorry i missed it too. I was at riverdance with some visiting relatives

 19:38 <airurando> We gave a frank account of our diminished activity over the last two years.

 19:38 <airurando> no problem vic9098 or ebel

 19:39 <zmoylan> special mention to tdr112 who did it on the bus with dying battery :-)

 19:39 <tdr112> :P

 19:39 <airurando> indeed :-)

 19:39 <airurando> We did state that some activity still existed and reboot efforts were ongoing.

 19:39 <airurando> The LoCo council recognised this lull in activity as a fairly common occurrence.

 19:40 <airurando> A short discussion developed focussed on getting new enthusiastic members to join LoCos.

 19:40 <airurando> It was clear that there is no easy way

 19:40 <airurando> The council approved our reapproval application. So we are now good to go until July 2015!

 19:41 <airurando> I am very thankful to the LoCo council for keeping faith in our LoCo.

 19:41 <tdr112> so I think we now have this chance to turn the loco around

 19:41 <airurando> indeed tdr112

 19:41 <airurando> Now following on from this and, more importantly, following on from the good will expressed during or team reboot efforts both on the mailing list and during recent team meetings, I strongly feel the time is right to firmly put our LoCo on a low level sustainable footing that is not too onerous to maintain at lease until interest and activity grows.

 19:42 <airurando> moving on!

 19:42 <airurando> #topic Team meetings

 19:42 <airurando> Frequency? Timing?

 19:43 <tdr112> > every month

 19:43 <mokmeister> tdr112: I think so too.

 19:43 <tdr112> 2 or 3 months

 19:43 <airurando> to frequent in my mind guys

 19:43 <vic9098> no longer then two months, but we probs would not have enough uptake for monthly

 19:43 <airurando> at the start at least

 19:44 <Bpb101> I would say Every Month on a Certin Date . Eg the first Thursday Of every Month at 8.30 /9 pm time

 19:44 <airurando> Mulling this over I came up with:

 19:44 <zmoylan> that way works best in my experience

 19:44 <airurando> http://pix.ie/ubuntuie/3319678/size/992

 19:44 <mokmeister> I dunno, I think there's something to be said for giving people a reason to come to here just to chat about ubuntu stuff.

 19:44 <airurando> I prefer the idea of quarterly meetings to start

 19:45 <airurando> FEB, MAY, AUG and NOV

 19:45 <Belgarath> well, sorry for cutting in but irc is dead to new users

 19:46 <airurando> looking at the chart there will be ubuntu related stuff to discuss each quarter

 19:46 <vic9098> maybe base them around april/oct to coincide with releases

 19:46 <airurando> good point Belgarath

 19:46 <airurando> but we need to keep it open

 19:46 <mokmeister> good points indeed

 19:46 <Belgarath> airurando: website with embeded irc client is known to have good results

 19:47 <airurando> Belgarth we have that

 19:47 <ebel> yeah web irc client makes irc a fesiable option for many

 19:47 <darrenbatesdub> Bonjour everyone sorry im late!

 19:47 <zmoylan> but it also is an open door to trolls from the other channels i hang out in

 19:47 <ebel> freenode has that

 19:48 <vic9098> using irc chat on android right now

 19:48 <ebel> zmoylan: #ubuntu-ie has a open policy. but also has a code of conduct, if people are troublesome, we can and will kick them

 19:48 <darrenbatesdub> Like vic, I'm using AndroIRC

 19:48 <ebel> I am an op here and can and will kick out trolls.

 19:49 <tdr112> ebel: has the power

 19:49 <ebel> just let me (or other ops) know if there's a problem

 19:49 <Belgarath> what if they behave, the trolls are mean ...that is racist behavior and troll discrimination :P

 19:49 <Bpb101> I know i dont get to many of these meeting, but has there been much trolls on here with the irc option?

 19:49 <zmoylan> tickety boo

 19:49 <ebel> discrimination against trolls is fine

 19:49 <ebel> Bpb101: no, none really that I remember

 19:49 <airurando> focus people we have a lot to get through

 19:50 <zmoylan> sorry for diverting conversation

 19:50 <ebel> back to the topic!

 19:50 <airurando> monthly meetings were partly the cause of things fizzling out

 19:50 <mokmeister> How do we get new users to use web IRC in the first place?

 19:51 <ebel> mokmeister: send them a link.

 19:51 <Belgarath> make it look liek a web chat :)

 19:51 <mokmeister> ahhh! Thanks Ebel

 19:51 <Belgarath> if you tell them "this is a link to our irc client" nobody will use it

 19:51 <airurando> ebel can you find the link, I don't have it to hand

 19:51 <Belgarath> if you have "click here to talk to us" some might

 19:51 <zmoylan> so add a link to tweets of meetings?

 19:52 <airurando> it is not necessary for all new members and users to attend the team meetings

 19:52 <airurando> small steps initially

 19:52 <Belgarath> http://code.google.com/p/irctotwit/

 19:52 <mokmeister> airurando: I think encouraging participation is an important thing though

 19:53 <airurando> we need to find our feet again.

 19:53 <ebel> http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#ubuntu-ie&randomnick=1

 19:53 <Belgarath> actaully bridging it to tweeter might ba a good idea

 19:54 <airurando> we were close to dead and the constant meetings, Ubuntu Hours, and other events where only the usual few were turning up caused the demise

 19:54 <airurando> start small and build again

 19:54 <Bpb101> Maybe use the link the ebel said ,and link it do facebook and twitter 5 minutes or so before the meating

 19:55 <vic9098> I like the idea of telling people were the meeting is taking place, but maybe let them decide the medium

 19:55 <airurando> I strongly feel we should start with quarterly meetings

 19:55 <ebel> +1 non-monthly meetings

 19:55 <ebel> we did monthly meetings. now here we are

 19:55 <vic9098> +1 q meetings

 19:55 <mokmeister> airurando: I'll go along with that

 19:56 <Bpb101> +1

 19:56 <darrenbatesdub> +1 quarterly meetings

 19:56 <airurando> mokmeister we can always ramp up if its needed

 19:56 <vic9098> call a vote

 19:56 <mokmeister> yep

 19:56 <tdr112> 1 quarterly meetings

 19:56 <darrenbatesdub> Unanimous

 19:59 <airurando> Belgarath would you like to voice your concerns?

 19:59 <airurando> no?

 20:00 <Belgarath> sure

 20:00 <Belgarath> my poitn is lack of continuity with such a timwe lapse

 20:00 <Belgarath> but again I 'm new here

 20:00 <Belgarath> it takes digging stuff out to remember 3 months down the line what you were doing on the last one

 20:01 <vic9098> the irc tends to have the usual suspects online. The mailing list fills the void I find

 20:01 <airurando> valid concerns but really monthly scuppered us last time. If interest grows and the need arises we will switch to more frequent meetings.

 20:01 <airurando> vic 9098 indeed

 20:02 <Belgarath> fair enough

 20:02 <airurando> no silver bullet solution.

 20:02 <zmoylan> no reason those that want to meet up monthly can't? just that the 'official' meetups are 4 times a year

 20:02 <Belgarath> and sorry to be the one person to disrupt it :)

 20:02 <airurando> not at all Belgarath

 20:02 <mokmeister> no need to apologize Belgarath , your opinion is as valid as any

 20:03 <airurando> indeed zmoylan adhoc meetings could be called by anyone at anytime

 20:03 <airurando> mokmeister +1

 20:03 <airurando> we'll plough on

 20:03 <airurando> #topic Release Parties

 20:04 <airurando> Should we continue holding them and if so at what frequency?

 20:04 <airurando> Personally I feel we should hold release parties for all releases as an absolute social event minimum

 20:04 <darrenbatesdub> Never been to one, so we should hold one for 13.10

 20:04 <darrenbatesdub> ;-)

 20:04 <tdr112> how many are there

 20:05 <airurando> Do folks agree?

 20:05 <tdr112> did they move from 2 a year

 20:05 <vic9098> suacy party next time... should have a showing of rocky horror to coincide :-)

 20:05 <airurando> 2 per year tdr112

 20:05 <zmoylan> 2 a year, least we can do is a meetup twice a year?

 20:05 <airurando> you know that :-)

 20:05 <mokmeister> vic9098: hahaha! I like it!

 20:05 <vic9098> Its oct too

 20:06 <airurando> vic9098 that's an interesting idea

 20:06 <airurando> The initial planning for these could be discussed at the proposed Feb and Aug meetings.

 20:07 <airurando> adhoc meetings could be called if necessary

 20:07 <zmoylan> push any discussion to the mailing list and that would keep that active?

 20:07 <darrenbatesdub> Good idea airurando

 20:07 <airurando> indeed zmoylan

 20:07 <mokmeister> better start some initial planning then!

 20:07 <tdr112> sounds good

 20:07 <mokmeister> :)

 20:07 <airurando> mokmeister will you take care of the midwest?

 20:08 <mokmeister> Yeah, I could try.

 20:08 <tdr112> while we have people here

 20:08 <tdr112> who would go to one in Dublin

 20:08 <zmoylan> i should be able to attend in dublin

 20:08 <airurando> I think we can initially plan to have a party or parties for saucy

 20:08 <vic9098> me...back to DCU from Sept

 20:08 <airurando> me also tdr112

 20:08 <vic9098> saucy parties....I like it

 20:09 <Belgarath> possibly me

 20:09 <darrenbatesdub> I'm for Dublin tdr112

 20:09 <tdr112> ok, so no reason why we cant have one in Dublin and hold hope for people to go to mokmeister

 20:10 <airurando> aye

 20:10 <airurando> general concensus no need to vote eh?

 20:10 <zmoylan> or do one definitely in dublin and the other outside dublin?

 20:10 <mokmeister> I suppose I could contact the comp socs in UL and LIT and see if I could drum up interest in a release party.

 20:11 <airurando> nice mokmeister

 20:11 <airurando> Andru Quinn is active in the LoCo. He has organised stuff in Limerick in the past.

 20:11 <airurando> thought he would be here tonight

 20:11 <mokmeister> yes, I was at one or two event in UL that he helped organise

 20:12 <airurando> Definitely Dublin release parties... Yes?

 20:12 <darrenbatesdub_> Yes

 20:12 <zmoylan> yeah

 20:12 <airurando> possibly other release parties outside the Pale

 20:12 <airurando> ebel you still there

 20:13 <airurando> lots of time gone i think we should move on

 20:13 <tdr112> ok

 20:13 <mokmeister> Will we get disks for the release party, or is that a thing of the past?

 20:13 <Bpb101> if i can go , Dublin would be the best

 20:13 <airurando> mokmeister: discs only for LTS releases

 20:14 <mokmeister> ok

 20:14 <vic9098__> Dvds now

 20:14 <zmoylan> who uses disks to install anymore? optical drives are getting rarer and rarer in mobile hardware

 20:14 <airurando> and we never get them before release parties

 20:14 <airurando> good stuff

 20:14 <Belgarath> zmoylan: we can possible get the usb drives:)

 20:14 <airurando> #topic Global Jams

 20:14 <Bpb101> Could they not just mass produce Ubuntu flash drives and send them out, Couldnt be that expensive

 20:15 <darrenbatesdub_> Define a Global Jam for me

 20:15 <tdr112> these have never worked well

 20:15 <vic9098__> What they charge for a phone, dread to see a usb price

 20:15 <Belgarath> Bpb101: we could do it ourselves

 20:15 <airurando> Bpb101 a topic for a different day

 20:15 <airurando> tdr112 indeed

 20:16 <tdr112> darrenbatesdub_: its a weekend where people work on ubuntu together

 20:16 <tdr112> dev, bug reports

 20:16 <tdr112> testing

 20:16 <mokmeister> darrenbatesdub_: the idea is to get together, squah bugs, contribute etc.

 20:16 <tdr112> website updating

 20:17 <airurando> I think UGJs are both socially and technically valuable for both Ubuntu and our LoCo. For those (if any) not familiar with UGJs:

 20:17 <airurando> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam

 20:17 <mokmeister> 1st bug I'm gonna SQUASH is my own type ;)

 20:17 <darrenbatesdub_> Sounds good - but I'm no dev but would still love to get involved

 20:17 <airurando> but we need interested techies

 20:17 <mokmeister> *typo! jeez! :D

 20:18 <ebel> oops yes here

 20:18 <airurando> Anyone interested in learning about and leading UGJs? We need to be productive during these if we are to participate.

 20:18 <airurando> no point in just showing up

 20:18 <Belgarath> I have no idea wht they are about so ...

 20:19 <airurando> but as an absolute minimum I strongly feel we should hold UGJs for the LTS releases.

 20:19 <airurando> Belgarath: check out the wiki and google Ubuntu Global Jam

 20:19 <airurando> Belgarath: they could be great

 20:19 * Belgarath googling in background

 20:20 <airurando> but we need leadership

 20:20 <airurando> As an absolute minimum I strongly feel we should hold UGJs for the LTS releases.

 20:20 <airurando> but I'd prefer if we held them for each iteration

 20:21 <Belgarath> actually 3 month before we can do a testing one

 20:21 <Belgarath> and upgrade to the new rc :)

 20:21 <airurando> Again, the planning for these could be discussed at the proposed Feb and Aug meeting as appropriate.

 20:21 <darrenbatesdub_> I can offer leadership, but I'm not a 'techie' and chances are I'll be out of here by the time the new LTS comes out

 20:22 <zmoylan> i think we need a pre ugj for the ugj so that everyone is up to speed for the day

 20:23 <airurando> zmoylan: can you lead this?

 20:23 <airurando> I think that is a good idea

 20:23 <zmoylan> at the mo, i can't even make it 100% to meetups unfortunately :-/

 20:23 <airurando> darrenbatesdub_: why out of here by the time the new LTS comes out?

 20:24 <airurando> tdr112: could you lead these?

 20:24 <airurando> ebel could you?

 20:24 <tdr112> airurando: i could i am trying to find the dates at the moment

 20:24 <tdr112> for the life of me i cant find them

 20:24 <airurando> Belgarath: what about you?

 20:25 <darrenbatesdub_> Isn't the new LTS 14.10? I'm hoping to be in the USA then

 20:25 <mokmeister> 14.04

 20:25 <darrenbatesdub_> September of 2014

 20:25 <Belgarath> airurando: lets move that discusson to next quaterly meeting

 20:25 <Belgarath> I need to read a bit in between

 20:26 <airurando> tdr112 sep 13/14/15

 20:26 <airurando> Belgarath: fair point but the saucy jam is in Sept

 20:26 <tdr112> thats fine

 20:26 <airurando> cool

 20:26 <Belgarath> airurando: I ment my participaion

 20:27 <Belgarath> not the fact it should go on

 20:27 <tdr112> ok i can run something on the sat or sun

 20:27 <airurando> Belgarath: sorry

 20:27 <tdr112> a one day thing

 20:27 <airurando> tdr112 great

 20:27 <tdr112> leave it withme

 20:27 <airurando> even is we can use the day to figure out how we will do it next time!

 20:28 <tdr112> i will use the mailing list to hash out the details

 20:28 <airurando> great

 20:28 <airurando> we'll move on

 20:28 <tdr112> others welcome to help

 20:28 <mokmeister> Productive meetings shouldn't last more than an hour... ;)

 20:28 <airurando> I'll try

 20:28 <Belgarath> mokmeister: not true

 20:29 <airurando> mokmeister I was just aboutt o say that

 20:29 <tdr112> airurando: whats next

 20:29 <darrenbatesdub_> I'll gladly help tdr112

 20:29 <Belgarath> mokmeister: depends on a subject

 20:29 <mokmeister> ah sure only messin

 20:29 <Belgarath> :)

 20:29 <airurando> the rest of the stuff is FYO

 20:29 <airurando> so ill quickly go through it

 20:30 <airurando> #topic Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summits

 20:30 <airurando> Do people participate in these?

 20:30 <airurando> The next one will be held between the 27th and the 29th of August and at present they are scheduled to occur every 3 months.

 20:30 <tdr112> i have never

 20:30 <mokmeister> nope

 20:31 <airurando> http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1308/

 20:31 <airurando> If you can find the time I'd encourage you all to attend.

 20:31 <Bpb101> I havent, but i might consider the next one. They are a good idea though

 20:31 <airurando> currently the plan is to hold them every three months

 20:31 <mokmeister> Twould be interesting just to see what's going on alright

 20:31 <airurando> do if you can

 20:32 <airurando> do sign up for it if you can

 20:32 <airurando> movin on

 20:32 <airurando> #topic Ubuntu Hours and/or Other Social Events

 20:32 <airurando> Adhoc? If so will people actually call any?

 20:33 <airurando> Personally, I am happy to leave this as adhoc.

 20:33 <airurando> thoughts?

 20:33 <tdr112> me too

 20:33 <darrenbatesdub_> Same

 20:33 <ebel> yep

 20:33 <airurando> grand

 20:33 <mokmeister> agreed. Will they happen if left to adhoc though?

 20:34 <mokmeister> And how will people know that they are happening? Through IRC / mailiing list?

 20:34 <airurando> mokmeister: indeed

 20:34 <airurando> mailing list

 20:34 <tdr112> they have been posted on the mailing list and twitter in the past

 20:34 <airurando> it will be up to people to call them

 20:34 <airurando> if they don't well they don't

 20:35 <zmoylan> we need to facebook, g+ AND tweet them

 20:35 <zmoylan> anyone on facebook or g+? i don't use them

 20:35 <tdr112> I dont use them

 20:35 <mokmeister> is there an ubuntu-ie on g+?

 20:35 <airurando> zmoylan I do the facebook stuff

 20:35 <darrenbatesdub_> Very active on G+. Facebook for family.

 20:35 <airurando> andru quinn does the G+

 20:36 <darrenbatesdub_> We could do so much on G+

 20:36 <zmoylan> put out the notices on social media but all links back to the wiki?

 20:36 <zmoylan> very few folk on g+

 20:37 <zmoylan> any social media you pick will have x percentage that won't use if for y reason

 20:37 <airurando> zmoylan: not the wiki. The LoCo team portal

 20:37 <zmoylan> airurando: you are correct, the portal not the wiki

 20:37 <airurando> so we'll leave it at call them when you want

 20:38 <Bpb101> i ussally post the outings on boards.ie as well , when there one up. Dont know how many people read them though

 20:38 <airurando> thanks for doing that Bpb101

 20:38 <airurando> #topic Team Administration

 20:39 <airurando> Meeting Minutes/Logs , Team Reports, LoCo Team Portal and our Social Streams

 20:39 <airurando> anyone interested in getting involved with this?

 20:39 <zmoylan> what does it involve?

 20:40 <airurando> team reports have stopped

 20:40 <darrenbatesdub_> Very interested

 20:40 <airurando> we need someone to take them on

 20:40 <airurando> or we can continue not doing them

 20:40 <airurando> darrenbatesdub_:

 20:40 <darrenbatesdub_> I'll take them.

    19:35 <airurando> Our Teams approval status expired at the end of June (at the moment, approved status lasts only 2 years and needs to be reapplied for at the time of expiry)

    19:38 <tdr112> np

    19:38 <ebel> yeah, sorry i missed it too. I was at riverdance with some visiting relatives

    19:38 <airurando> We gave a frank account of our diminished activity over the last two years.

    19:38 <airurando> no problem vic9098 or ebel

    19:39 <zmoylan> special mention to tdr112 who did it on the bus with dying battery Smile :-)

    19:39 <tdr112> :P

    19:39 <airurando> indeed Smile :-)

    19:39 <airurando> We did state that some activity still existed and reboot efforts were ongoing.

    19:39 <airurando> The LoCo council recognised this lull in activity as a fairly common occurrence.

    19:40 <airurando> A short discussion developed focussed on getting new enthusiastic members to join LoCos.

    19:40 <airurando> It was clear that there is no easy way

    19:40 <airurando> The council approved our reapproval application. So we are now good to go until July 2015!

    19:41 <airurando> I am very thankful to the LoCo council for keeping faith in our LoCo.

    19:41 <tdr112> so I think we now have this chance to turn the loco around

    19:41 <airurando> indeed tdr112

    19:41 <airurando> Now following on from this and, more importantly, following on from the good will expressed during or team reboot efforts both on the mailing list and during recent team meetings, I strongly feel the time is right to firmly put our LoCo on a low level sustainable footing that is not too onerous to maintain at lease until interest and activity grows.

    19:42 <airurando> moving on!

    19:42 <airurando> #topic Team meetings

    19:42 <airurando> Frequency? Timing?

    19:43 <tdr112> > every month

    19:43 <mokmeister> tdr112: I think so too.

    19:43 <tdr112> 2 or 3 months

    19:43 <airurando> to frequent in my mind guys

    19:43 <vic9098> no longer then two months, but we probs would not have enough uptake for monthly

    19:43 <airurando> at the start at least

    19:44 <Bpb101> I would say Every Month on a Certin Date . Eg the first Thursday Of every Month at 8.30 /9 pm time

    19:44 <airurando> Mulling this over I came up with:

    19:44 <zmoylan> that way works best in my experience

    19:44 <airurando> http://pix.ie/ubuntuie/3319678/size/992

    19:44 <mokmeister> I dunno, I think there's something to be said for giving people a reason to come to here just to chat about ubuntu stuff.

    19:44 <airurando> I prefer the idea of quarterly meetings to start

    19:45 <airurando> FEB, MAY, AUG and NOV

    19:45 <Belgarath> well, sorry for cutting in but irc is dead to new users

    19:46 <airurando> looking at the chart there will be ubuntu related stuff to discuss each quarter

    19:46 <vic9098> maybe base them around april/oct to coincide with releases

    19:46 <airurando> good point Belgarath

    19:46 <airurando> but we need to keep it open

    19:46 <mokmeister> good points indeed

    19:46 <Belgarath> airurando: website with embeded irc client is known to have good results

    19:47 <airurando> Belgarth we have that

    19:47 <ebel> yeah web irc client makes irc a fesiable option for many

    19:47 <darrenbatesdub> Bonjour everyone sorry im late!

    19:47 <zmoylan> but it also is an open door to trolls from the other channels i hang out in

    19:47 <ebel> freenode has that

    19:48 <vic9098> using irc chat on android right now

    19:48 <ebel> zmoylan: #ubuntu-ie has a open policy. but also has a code of conduct, if people are troublesome, we can and will kick them

    19:48 <darrenbatesdub> Like vic, I'm using AndroIRC

    19:48 <ebel> I am an op here and can and will kick out trolls.

    19:49 <tdr112> ebel: has the power

    19:49 <ebel> just let me (or other ops) know if there's a problem

    19:49 <Belgarath> what if they behave, the trolls are mean ...that is racist behavior and troll discrimination :P

    19:49 <Bpb101> I know i dont get to many of these meeting, but has there been much trolls on here with the irc option?

    19:49 <zmoylan> tickety boo

    19:49 <ebel> discrimination against trolls is fine

    19:49 <ebel> Bpb101: no, none really that I remember

    19:49 <airurando> focus people we have a lot to get through

    19:50 <zmoylan> sorry for diverting conversation

    19:50 <ebel> back to the topic!

    19:50 <airurando> monthly meetings were partly the cause of things fizzling out

    19:50 <mokmeister> How do we get new users to use web IRC in the first place?

    19:51 <ebel> mokmeister: send them a link.

    19:51 <Belgarath> make it look liek a web chat Smile :)

    19:51 <mokmeister> ahhh! Thanks Ebel

    19:51 <Belgarath> if you tell them "this is a link to our irc client" nobody will use it

    19:51 <airurando> ebel can you find the link, I don't have it to hand

    19:51 <Belgarath> if you have "click here to talk to us" some might

    19:51 <zmoylan> so add a link to tweets of meetings?

    19:52 <airurando> it is not necessary for all new members and users to attend the team meetings

    19:52 <airurando> small steps initially

    19:52 <Belgarath> http://code.google.com/p/irctotwit/

    19:52 <mokmeister> airurando: I think encouraging participation is an important thing though

    19:53 <airurando> we need to find our feet again.

    19:53 <ebel> http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#ubuntu-ie&randomnick=1

    19:53 <Belgarath> actaully bridging it to tweeter might ba a good idea

    19:54 <airurando> we were close to dead and the constant meetings, Ubuntu Hours, and other events where only the usual few were turning up caused the demise

    19:54 <airurando> start small and build again

    19:54 <Bpb101> Maybe use the link the ebel said ,and link it do facebook and twitter 5 minutes or so before the meating

    19:55 <vic9098> I like the idea of telling people were the meeting is taking place, but maybe let them decide the medium

    19:55 <airurando> I strongly feel we should start with quarterly meetings

    19:55 <ebel> +1 non-monthly meetings

    19:55 <ebel> we did monthly meetings. now here we are

    19:55 <vic9098> +1 q meetings

    19:55 <mokmeister> airurando: I'll go along with that

    19:56 <Bpb101> +1

    19:56 <darrenbatesdub> +1 quarterly meetings

    19:56 <airurando> mokmeister we can always ramp up if its needed

    19:56 <vic9098> call a vote

    19:56 <mokmeister> yep

    19:59 <airurando> Belgarath would you like to voice your concerns?

    19:59 <airurando> no?

    20:00 <Belgarath> sure

    20:00 <Belgarath> my poitn is lack of continuity with such a timwe lapse

    20:00 <Belgarath> but again I 'm new here

    20:00 <Belgarath> it takes digging stuff out to remember 3 months down the line what you were doing on the last one

    20:01 <vic9098> the irc tends to have the usual suspects online. The mailing list fills the void I find

    20:01 <airurando> valid concerns but really monthly scuppered us last time. If interest grows and the need arises we will switch to more frequent meetings.

    20:01 <airurando> vic 9098 indeed

    20:02 <Belgarath> fair enough

    20:02 <airurando> no silver bullet solution.

    20:02 <zmoylan> no reason those that want to meet up monthly can't? just that the 'official' meetups are 4 times a year

    20:02 <Belgarath> and sorry to be the one person to disrupt it Smile :)

    20:02 <airurando> not at all Belgarath

    20:02 <mokmeister> no need to apologize Belgarath , your opinion is as valid as any

    20:03 <airurando> indeed zmoylan adhoc meetings could be called by anyone at anytime

    20:03 <airurando> mokmeister +1

    20:03 <airurando> we'll plough on

    20:03 <airurando> #topic Release Parties

    20:04 <airurando> Should we continue holding them and if so at what frequency?

    20:04 <airurando> Personally I feel we should hold release parties for all releases as an absolute social event minimum

    20:04 <darrenbatesdub> Never been to one, so we should hold one for 13.10

    20:04 <darrenbatesdub> Wink ;-)

    20:04 <tdr112> how many are there

    20:05 <airurando> Do folks agree?

    20:05 <tdr112> did they move from 2 a year

    20:05 <vic9098> suacy party next time... should have a showing of rocky horror to coincide Smile :-)

    20:05 <airurando> 2 per year tdr112

    20:05 <zmoylan> 2 a year, least we can do is a meetup twice a year?

    20:05 <airurando> you know that Smile :-)

    20:05 <mokmeister> vic9098: hahaha! I like it!

    20:05 <vic9098> Its oct too

    20:06 <airurando> vic9098 that's an interesting idea

    20:06 <airurando> The initial planning for these could be discussed at the proposed Feb and Aug meetings.

    20:07 <airurando> adhoc meetings could be called if necessary

    20:07 <zmoylan> push any discussion to the mailing list and that would keep that active?

    20:07 <darrenbatesdub> Good idea airurando

    20:07 <airurando> indeed zmoylan

    20:07 <mokmeister> better start some initial planning then!

    20:07 <tdr112> sounds good

    20:07 <mokmeister> Smile :)

    20:07 <airurando> mokmeister will you take care of the midwest?

    20:08 <mokmeister> Yeah, I could try.

    20:08 <tdr112> while we have people here

    20:08 <tdr112> who would go to one in Dublin

    20:08 <zmoylan> i should be able to attend in dublin

    20:08 <airurando> I think we can initially plan to have a party or parties for saucy

    20:08 <vic9098> me...back to DCU from Sept

    20:08 <airurando> me also tdr112

    20:08 <vic9098> saucy parties....I like it

    20:09 <Belgarath> possibly me

    20:09 <darrenbatesdub> I'm for Dublin tdr112

    20:09 <tdr112> ok, so no reason why we cant have one in Dublin and hold hope for people to go to mokmeister

    20:10 <airurando> aye

    20:10 <airurando> general concensus no need to vote eh?

    20:10 <zmoylan> or do one definitely in dublin and the other outside dublin?

    20:10 <mokmeister> I suppose I could contact the comp socs in UL and LIT and see if I could drum up interest in a release party.

    20:11 <airurando> nice mokmeister

    20:11 <airurando> Andru Quinn is active in the LoCo. He has organised stuff in Limerick in the past.

    20:11 <airurando> thought he would be here tonight

    20:11 <mokmeister> yes, I was at one or two event in UL that he helped organise

    20:12 <airurando> Definitely Dublin release parties... Yes?

    20:12 <darrenbatesdub_> Yes

    20:12 <zmoylan> yeah

    20:12 <airurando> possibly other release parties outside the Pale

    20:12 <airurando> ebel you still there

    20:13 <airurando> lots of time gone i think we should move on

    20:13 <tdr112> ok

    20:13 <mokmeister> Will we get disks for the release party, or is that a thing of the past?

    20:13 <Bpb101> if i can go , Dublin would be the best

    20:13 <airurando> mokmeister: discs only for LTS releases

    20:14 <mokmeister> ok

    20:14 <vic9098> Dvds now

    20:14 <zmoylan> who uses disks to install anymore? optical drives are getting rarer and rarer in mobile hardware

    20:14 <airurando> and we never get them before release parties

    20:14 <airurando> good stuff

    20:14 <Belgarath> zmoylan: we can possible get the usb drives:)

    20:14 <airurando> #topic Global Jams

    20:14 <Bpb101> Could they not just mass produce Ubuntu flash drives and send them out, Couldnt be that expensive

    20:15 <darrenbatesdub_> Define a Global Jam for me

    20:15 <tdr112> these have never worked well

    20:15 <vic9098> What they charge for a phone, dread to see a usb price

    20:15 <Belgarath> Bpb101: we could do it ourselves

    20:15 <airurando> Bpb101 a topic for a different day

    20:15 <airurando> tdr112 indeed

    20:16 <tdr112> darrenbatesdub_: its a weekend where people work on ubuntu together

    20:16 <tdr112> dev, bug reports

    20:16 <tdr112> testing

    20:16 <mokmeister> darrenbatesdub_: the idea is to get together, squah bugs, contribute etc.

    20:16 <tdr112> website updating

    20:17 <airurando> I think UGJs are both socially and technically valuable for both Ubuntu and our LoCo. For those (if any) not familiar with UGJs:

    20:17 <airurando> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam

    20:17 <mokmeister> 1st bug I'm gonna SQUASH is my own type Wink ;)

    20:17 <darrenbatesdub_> Sounds good - but I'm no dev but would still love to get involved

    20:17 <airurando> but we need interested techies

    20:17 <mokmeister> *typo! jeez! Big Grin :)

    20:18 <ebel> oops yes here

    20:18 <airurando> Anyone interested in learning about and leading UGJs? We need to be productive during these if we are to participate.

    20:18 <airurando> no point in just showing up

    20:18 <Belgarath> I have no idea wht they are about so ...

    20:19 <airurando> but as an absolute minimum I strongly feel we should hold UGJs for the LTS releases.

    20:19 <airurando> Belgarath: check out the wiki and google Ubuntu Global Jam

    20:19 <airurando> Belgarath: they could be great 20:19 * Belgarath googling in background

    20:20 <airurando> but we need leadership

    20:20 <airurando> As an absolute minimum I strongly feel we should hold UGJs for the LTS releases.

    20:20 <airurando> but I'd prefer if we held them for each iteration

    20:21 <Belgarath> actually 3 month before we can do a testing one

    20:21 <Belgarath> and upgrade to the new rc Smile :)

    20:21 <airurando> Again, the planning for these could be discussed at the proposed Feb and Aug meeting as appropriate.

    20:21 <darrenbatesdub_> I can offer leadership, but I'm not a 'techie' and chances are I'll be out of here by the time the new LTS comes out

    20:22 <zmoylan> i think we need a pre ugj for the ugj so that everyone is up to speed for the day

    20:23 <airurando> zmoylan: can you lead this?

    20:23 <airurando> I think that is a good idea

    20:23 <zmoylan> at the mo, i can't even make it 100% to meetups unfortunately :-/

    20:23 <airurando> darrenbatesdub_: why out of here by the time the new LTS comes out?

    20:24 <airurando> tdr112: could you lead these?

    20:24 <airurando> ebel could you?

    20:24 <tdr112> airurando: i could i am trying to find the dates at the moment

    20:24 <tdr112> for the life of me i cant find them

    20:24 <airurando> Belgarath: what about you?

    20:25 <darrenbatesdub_> Isn't the new LTS 14.10? I'm hoping to be in the USA then

    20:25 <mokmeister> 14.04

    20:25 <darrenbatesdub_> September of 2014

    20:25 <Belgarath> airurando: lets move that discusson to next quaterly meeting

    20:25 <Belgarath> I need to read a bit in between

    20:26 <airurando> tdr112 sep 13/14/15

    20:26 <airurando> Belgarath: fair point but the saucy jam is in Sept

    20:26 <tdr112> thats fine

    20:26 <airurando> cool

    20:26 <Belgarath> airurando: I ment my participaion

    20:27 <Belgarath> not the fact it should go on

    20:27 <tdr112> ok i can run something on the sat or sun

    20:27 <airurando> Belgarath: sorry

    20:27 <tdr112> a one day thing

    20:27 <airurando> tdr112 great

    20:27 <tdr112> leave it withme

    20:27 <airurando> even is we can use the day to figure out how we will do it next time!

    20:28 <tdr112> i will use the mailing list to hash out the details

    20:28 <airurando> great

    20:28 <airurando> we'll move on

    20:28 <tdr112> others welcome to help

    20:28 <mokmeister> Productive meetings shouldn't last more than an hour... Wink ;)

    20:28 <airurando> I'll try

    20:28 <Belgarath> mokmeister: not true

    20:29 <airurando> mokmeister I was just aboutt o say that

    20:29 <tdr112> airurando: whats next

    20:29 <darrenbatesdub_> I'll gladly help tdr112

    20:29 <Belgarath> mokmeister: depends on a subject

    20:29 <mokmeister> ah sure only messin

    20:29 <Belgarath> Smile :)

    20:29 <airurando> the rest of the stuff is FYO

    20:29 <airurando> so ill quickly go through it

    20:30 <airurando> #topic Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summits

    20:30 <airurando> Do people participate in these?

    20:30 <airurando> The next one will be held between the 27th and the 29th of August and at present they are scheduled to occur every 3 months.

    20:30 <tdr112> i have never

    20:30 <mokmeister> nope

    20:31 <airurando> http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1308/

    20:31 <airurando> If you can find the time I'd encourage you all to attend.

    20:31 <Bpb101> I havent, but i might consider the next one. They are a good idea though

    20:31 <airurando> currently the plan is to hold them every three months

    20:31 <mokmeister> Twould be interesting just to see what's going on alright

    20:31 <airurando> do if you can

    20:32 <airurando> do sign up for it if you can

    20:32 <airurando> movin on

    20:32 <airurando> #topic Ubuntu Hours and/or Other Social Events

    20:32 <airurando> Adhoc? If so will people actually call any?

    20:33 <airurando> Personally, I am happy to leave this as adhoc.

    20:33 <airurando> thoughts?

    20:33 <tdr112> me too

    20:33 <darrenbatesdub_> Same

    20:33 <ebel> yep

    20:33 <airurando> grand

    20:33 <mokmeister> agreed. Will they happen if left to adhoc though?

    20:34 <mokmeister> And how will people know that they are happening? Through IRC / mailiing list?

    20:34 <airurando> mokmeister: indeed

    20:34 <airurando> mailing list

    20:34 <tdr112> they have been posted on the mailing list and twitter in the past

    20:34 <airurando> it will be up to people to call them

    20:34 <airurando> if they don't well they don't

    20:35 <zmoylan> we need to facebook, g+ AND tweet them

    20:35 <zmoylan> anyone on facebook or g+? i don't use them

    20:35 <tdr112> I dont use them

    20:35 <mokmeister> is there an ubuntu-ie on g+?

    20:35 <airurando> zmoylan I do the facebook stuff

    20:35 <darrenbatesdub_> Very active on G+. Facebook for family.

    20:35 <airurando> andru quinn does the G+

    20:36 <darrenbatesdub_> We could do so much on G+

    20:36 <zmoylan> put out the notices on social media but all links back to the wiki?

    20:36 <zmoylan> very few folk on g+

    20:37 <zmoylan> any social media you pick will have x percentage that won't use if for y reason

    20:37 <airurando> zmoylan: not the wiki. The LoCo team portal

    20:37 <zmoylan> airurando: you are correct, the portal not the wiki

    20:37 <airurando> so we'll leave it at call them when you want

    20:38 <Bpb101> i ussally post the outings on boards.ie as well , when there one up. Dont know how many people read them though

    20:38 <airurando> thanks for doing that Bpb101

    20:38 <airurando> #topic Team Administration

    20:39 <airurando> Meeting Minutes/Logs , Team Reports, LoCo Team Portal and our Social Streams
