21:26 < Gwaihir> structure is similar to the international one
21:26 < Gwaihir> we have an Italian Loco Council
21:26 < Gwaihir> that used to be made of members of all the various team
21:26 < Gwaihir> (translation, developers, docs, forum and IRC)
21:26 < czajkowski> nice application for a starters :)
21:27 < Gwaihir> we are kind of active in Italy, even if not that much due to the distance between all the active members
21:27 < Gwaihir> we are scattered all other Italy, and that's not easy even to meet us in person twice a year
21:28 < czajkowski> Gwaihir: how do you share roles out within your team ?
21:28 < Gwaihir> the team is growing, we have new members coming in and joining the various working team
21:28 < Gwaihir> czajkowski, what to you mean with that?
21:28 < huats> Gwaihir, do you have an idea of the current growth ?
21:28 < czajkowski> Gwaihir: how do you share out tasks, things that need to be done with people ?
21:29 < Gwaihir> huats, no real data: we have almost two ubuntu-it members every month for example
21:29 < czajkowski> wow
21:29 < czajkowski> impressive
21:29 < huats> terrific
21:29 < Gwaihir> (ubuntu-it membership is like the ubuntu membership, only for italian people)
21:29 < czajkowski> Gwaihir: can you tell us about that
21:29 < czajkowski> what makes you qualify for it ?
21:29 < Gwaihir> yeah, but people sometime disappear... :(
21:30 < Gwaihir> czajkowski, you need to have done substantial "work" within the Italian community
21:30 < Gwaihir> be it: IRC support, forum support, translations, packagin... whatever
21:30 < Gwaihir> we ask people to track their work on a wiki page we can read
21:30 < popey> I'm impressed with the ISO testing work the IT team has done
21:31 < Gwaihir> and ask to find some people that can vouch form them when they apply

21:45 < czajkowski> glogiotatidis: care to tel us about your team
21:46 < glogiotatidis> of course
21:46 < glogiotatidis> This is our second approval, we have been an official team for many years. We have very active foums and mailing lists (counting more than 5500 members in total).
21:46 < glogiotatidis> This year we achieved a full translation of the ubuntu manual and we are very proud of it. Many team members cooperated to achive that. We also translated the ubuntu brochure.
21:46 < glogiotatidis> Another important activity of the community is Ubuntistas, our magazine, inspired by Full Circle. It is (almost) bi-monthly -we have 8 issues in the last 2 years- with original content written by the team members.
21:46 < glogiotatidis> We also participate in the annual FOSSCOMM, a FLOSS conference held by the greek communities with a booth and talks.
21:47 < glogiotatidis> Besides these we hold parties on every release, we maintain a website, a wiki page, we ship cds all around Greece and we have mebers activelly promoting ubuntu and floss in digital and real life.
21:47 < czajkowski> glogiotatidis: impressive, can you tell me a bit more about your magazine the artwork looks great
21:47 < huats> czajkowski, +1
21:47 < glogiotatidis> the artwork is created by the team members
21:48 < glogiotatidis> the whole magazine is organized in our forums
21:48 < glogiotatidis> people are responsible for the editorial, the artwork, the content
21:48 < czajkowski> glogiotatidis: you should tell UWN (ubuntu weekly newsletter) about this
21:48 < glogiotatidis> czajkowski, we will, thnx ;)
21:48 < huats> can you say more about the brochure ? I am sure it would be great to translate it
21:48 < czajkowski> glogiotatidis: are there many more of your team here, I do appreciate not everyone speaks English

21:49 < huats> glogiotatidis, about the brochure ?
21:49 < czajkowski> wow
21:50 < glogiotatidis> Yes pretty active translation team
21:50 < popey> great work
21:50 < c7p> well the brochure started as a translation of a brochure from spreadubuntu and then we worked more on it
21:50 < glogiotatidis> huats, you can find the brochure here http://spreadubuntu.neomenlo.org/el/material/brochure/%CF%86%CF%85%CE%BB%CE%BB%CE%AC%CE%B4%CE%B9%CE%BF-%CF%80%CF%81%CE%BF%CF%8E%CE%B8%CE%B7%CF%83%CE%B7%CF%82-%CF%84%CE%BF%CF%85-ubuntu
21:50 < simosx> we did the remaining ubuntu-specific packages last April.
21:50 < popey> gorgeous url ;)
21:51 < maco> wow....mod_rewrite?
21:51 < Seveas> no, just greek characters
21:51 < huats> gilir, you should try to have an english version
21:51 < Seveas> the http rfc is too ascii-centric :)
21:51 < huats> si that other team can translate it
21:51 < glogiotatidis> popey, erm sorry for that, greek characters in there ;)
21:51 < alkisg> Having greek characters on the url is good for SEO :)

21:53 < Sensiva> :D
21:54 < thelinuxer> u should thank Sensiva for this :)
21:54 < czajkowski> Sensiva: very nice
21:54 < Sensiva> I was practicing wiki markup, that's all
21:54 < Sensiva> :p
21:54 < Sensiva> ty thelinuxer czajkowski
21:54 < czajkowski> ok so can you tell us about your team, and how you are organised
21:54 < czajkowski> Do you do monthly reports?
21:54 < thelinuxer> ok
21:55 < thelinuxer> our team started 3 years ago with no much activity
21:55 < thelinuxer> in the last few month we revived the team and started by organizing meeting in coffee shops ..etc
21:55 < thelinuxer> we then tried to organize events but had problems finding venues
21:56 < thelinuxer> lately we are trying to collaborate with other technology groups to help us find venues and to assist them in their events
21:56 < thelinuxer> the structure is simple, everyone owns his ideas
21:56 < thelinuxer> and he has to follow up on people to make sure that the work is done
21:57 < thelinuxer> also we created the website and we will have different roles like moderator, translators ..etc
21:57 < thelinuxer> does this answer ur question ?
21:57 < huats> I am quite surprised : you mention a youtube channel : when I look at it the various videos has been put last week... The blog you mention contains no post...
21:57 < huats> can you explain this ?
21:57 < thelinuxer> yes i can
21:58 < thelinuxer> it's still under development, small bugs here and there
21:58 < thelinuxer> also i am waiting for the approval to user the ubuntu-eg.org domain
21:58 < thelinuxer> the current url is only temp
21:58 < huats> ok
21:59 < czajkowski> can you tell us if you've had any problems in the past and how you've overcome them ?
21:59 < thelinuxer> yes we had a couple of problems
21:59 < Sensiva> video upload was delayed because I didn't have a good upstream to upload until last week
21:59 < czajkowski> thelinuxer: such as ?
21:59 < thelinuxer> we had HardDisk who tried to take credit for the whole team work, he wanted to become an ubuntu member without doing anything
21:59 < thelinuxer> he was banned from the team for that
22:00 < thelinuxer> cause we don't tolerate such actions
22:00 < paultag|cell> ah yes i recall that
22:00 < czajkowski> how long for ?
22:00 < Sensiva> he choosed to leave, and he handed over various accounts after leaving the team
22:01 < thelinuxer> czajkowski: sorry didn't understand the question
22:01 < Sensiva> wordpress, and ubuntueg at youtube
22:01 < czajkowski> is he baned for good, or for a short time?
22:01 < Sensiva> it was supposed to be for short time, but HardDisk choosed to leave the team
22:01 < thelinuxer> well as Sensiva said we gave him a chance to answer people's questions on the mailing list and defend himself
22:01 < leogg> thelinuxer: In your application you have a lot of nice ideas, but I'd like to see more action

22:05 < MootBot> New Topic:  Dutch Team Re Approval
22:05 < huats> let's say that wit that vote we are sure to try to help you doing great stuffs
22:05 < Seveas> hello

22:05 < MootBot> LINK received:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DutchTeamApprovalApplication
22:05 < huats> hi Seveas
22:05 < SWAT> hi there
22:05 < czajkowski> [link] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DutchTeam
22:05 < MootBot> LINK received:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DutchTeam
22:05 < Seveas> Coming live from a concrete block outside a police station
22:05 < Seveas> Good evening! Myself (Dennis Kaarsemaker) and SWAT (Sebastian Schauenburg) are here representing the dutch locoteam. We are one of the oldest LoCoTeams in the book and have been active since 2004. We have organized release parties for every release since 5.04 and presentations since about the same time. At the moment the LoCo revolves mostly around our forum, but we are planning more international
22:05 < Seveas>  activity. We have our website (www.ubuntu-nl.org), wiki (wiki.ubuntu-nl.org), irc channel (#ubuntu-nl) and mailinglist (ubuntu-nl at lists.ubuntu.com) where we support users and we also have a map of local supportpoints (kaart.ubuntu-nl.org) for even more direct support. Highlights of our team are the 8.04 and 10.04 releaseparties that attracted hundreds of people and were packed with user suppor
22:05 < Seveas> t, presentations and good conversations and that we secured sponsorship from a large ISP and a large hotels website for hosting and hardware. We are currently working on a roadmap to improve ourselves, while decreasing overhead time-investments and increasing motivation. We also have monthly (open and logged) IRC meetings where anybody can put items on the agenda: http://wiki.ubuntu-nl.org/communi
22:05 < Seveas> ty/Meetings
22:06 < czajkowski> wow thanks Seveas :)
22:06 < czajkowski> how goes the frysian team - Ubuntu-fy ?
22:07 < Seveas> it's busy starting, Dooitze is creating pages on ubuntu-fy.org and the forum is seeing some activity
22:07 < SWAT> slow but steady
22:07 < Seveas> we're supporting them by hosting their environment
22:07 < czajkowski> right.
22:08 < czajkowski> Presentations and talks - Between 2004 and 2010, community members of Ubuntu NL have given talks about ubuntu on quite a few occasions. Audiences range from small to large companies, to local LUGs (HCC groups), schools and even hospital staff. Sadly most of these talks have not been recorded or photographed.
22:08 < czajkowski> you mention above but there are no links to any presentations?
22:08 < Seveas> I'm afraid not. I was fairly late with preparing our wikipage and couldn't find any links
22:09 < popey> approval page is a bit lean..
22:09 < huats> Have you any figures on the numbers of people involved in the LoCo ?
22:09 < Seveas> a few dozen
22:09 < huats> and the evolution of that number ?
22:09 < huats> (over the time I mean)
22:10 < czajkowski> As a mostly forum-based community, we do not track membership via launchpad and thus it is unclear how many members we have and who we count as members. As an indication, the forum has 20000+ registered accounts
22:10 < Seveas> we are going through a bit of a rough period where some people on the forum seem hell-bent on killing the atmosphere, but there always have been active people, growing slowly
22:10 < czajkowski> Does that mean your focus is mostly forums and not real life events? or online meetings/reports taking part in the ubuntu community
22:10 < Seveas> recently the artwork team was created, adding half a dozen people
22:10 < Seveas> the focus is mostly on forums and releaseparties
22:11 < Seveas> though Sense is becoming more active internationally and the artwork team is trying to do so too
22:11 < SWAT> and events (but mostly these are smaller)
22:11 < czajkowski> Seveas: do you think your loco is fully aware of the greater Ubuntu communty ?
22:11 < Seveas> czajkowski, no, there is definitely room for improvement there
22:12 < SWAT> there is a huge language barrier, since everything we do (example right here) is in English and a lot of people are not proficient in it
22:12 < czajkowski> I notice sense isn't here and he's rather vocal and very active as a community member. As is Seveas on boards, do you think others in yoru team would benefit from learning more about the community
22:12 < czajkowski> how do you propse to do so if you thinkit would be wise ?
22:13 < czajkowski> SWAT: true, but many people use a translator, and we are as others are very patient with people who don't speak english as their first language
22:13 < Seveas> czajkowski, maybe yes, maybe no. Our activities revolve around local events and dutch support.
22:13 < czajkowski> Seveas: I just don't see that on your appliction....
22:14 < Seveas> I think sense is doing great work keeping tabs on the international community and I hope the artwork team will follow that example. That's where I see opportunities for integration with the global community.
22:14 < leogg> Seveas: Do you have any links to the events? Besides http://www.releaseparty.eu/
22:14 < SWAT> we notice that documentation in our native tongue is very important, since about everyone can understand them. So we're trying to keep that up. Even had a meeting a few hours ago about the manual project
22:14 < czajkowski> SWAT: thats good
22:14 < paultag|remote> what about the council
22:14 < Seveas> leogg, releaseparty.eu is refreshed for every release, that's why it only has one release on there
22:14 < paultag|remote> i heard the nl council quit on one day all together
22:14 < popey> http://people.ubuntu.com/~dpm/ubuntu-10.04-translation-stats.html dutch is looking good there..
22:14 < MootBot> LINK received:  http://people.ubuntu.com/~dpm/ubuntu-10.04-translation-stats.html dutch is looking good there..
22:15 < paultag|remote> what was that about?
22:15 < jpds> (The nl.archive.u.c guys are awesome).
22:15 < czajkowski> jpds: it's all about the archives with you :)
22:16 < czajkowski> 22:14 < paultag|remote> i heard the nl council quit on one day all together ??
22:16 < czajkowski> can someone answer that ?
22:16 < Seveas> paultag|remote, we have in the past had problems with problematic community members, causing much activity to move to closed parts of the forum. This is causing some disconnection between 'the team' and 'the community'. The council was one attempt to solve that, sadly that failed. We have some way to go there, but we have faced similar problems in the past and survived them.
22:16 < Seveas> czajkowski, I was typing the answer :)
22:17 < czajkowski> Seveas: thanks
22:17 < paultag|remote> whats the plan going forward?
22:17 < czajkowski> ok any more thoughts from the council or from Seveas SWAT ??
22:17 < SWAT> we are trying to find a better way to handle this and they agreed. I talked to a couple of them during one of our events and we have the same mindset
22:17 < Seveas> paultag|remote, that's not quite clear yet. This is a fairly recent development.

22:22 < czajkowski> doctormo: well your re approval appliction is rather lacking
22:22 < doctormo> czajkowski: I'm not here to ask for reaproval, I'm here to ask not to be.
22:23 < huats> doctormo,  ?
22:23 < czajkowski> does your team know about this
22:23 < czajkowski> is this a team decision
22:23 < huats> I think you are doing it the right way :(
22:23 < doctormo> We do events, we use the resources we get from Canonical's shipit and it's all good. But the team is complacent, lazy, disorganised and I'm very unhappy with it.
22:23 < doctormo> My attempt to step down as leader gracefully was met with massive amounts of resistance.
22:23 < huats> doctormo, have you tried to change stuffs ?
22:24 < czajkowski> well that's not very fair, at least you wanted to step down
22:24 < huats> I mean besides steeping down
22:24 < czajkowski> doctormo: can you at least give us some reasons why the team is so disorganised?
22:24 < huats> doctormo, does leftyfb is aware ?
22:24 < huats> since you mention that
22:25 < doctormo> the problem is that there is no one else to fill the spot, the team doesn't have enough members to sustain anything worthwhile. But as the only functioning team in the New England area if we disband then that about wraps it up for Ubuntu.
22:25 < czajkowski> doctormo: ok, see we don't know how many members there are,
22:25 < popey> is it quite a small team relatively?
22:25 < leftyfb> It's a revolving team
22:25 < doctormo> I'd estimate about 12 members, 5 who do things.
22:25 < leftyfb> lots of members have come and gone over the years
22:25 < huats> doctormo, these kind of figures should be on the application
22:25 < popey> wow, thats pretty small
22:25 < doctormo> The Ubuntu Hours have been good actually, for team morale etc.
22:26 < leftyfb> lots of fulltime working people with not much time on their hands
22:26 < czajkowski> yup Ubuntu hours are great, there is little pressure on folks
22:26 < leftyfb> most of the work has been done doctormo, myself and a few others
22:26  * paultag|remote is in ohio
22:26 < popey> would running leaderless be an option?
22:26 < leftyfb> This Ubuntu hour has been a new spark as of late
22:26 < doctormo> But with no team meetings for going on 5 months, it's hard not to throw in the towel, we don't have the resources for this marlarky.
22:26 < czajkowski> *nods*
22:26 < czajkowski> I do understand
22:26 < leftyfb> I don't agree on completely giving up though
22:26 < czajkowski> right but do you need a team leader
22:27 < huats> leftyfb, that was my question
22:27 < popey> czajkowski: not really
22:27 < huats> leftyfb, what is the reaction of the other people involved ?
22:27 < czajkowski> could there just be a launchpad team contact
22:27 < doctormo> leftyfb: I think we should do the hours, do the events we're going to do anyway. But we can't be a 'team' as just a straggle of people.
22:27 < popey> they can run with a point of contact, but have the team semi-autonomous
22:27 < czajkowski> and everyone share roles?
22:27 < czajkowski> popey: that;s what I was getting at, am a slow typer :)
22:27 < paultag|remote> im here to help in person until august
22:28 < paultag|remote> end of august
22:28 < czajkowski> doctormo: do you think us making the team an unapproved loco will change anything ?
22:28 < leftyfb> huats: We don't know what others think since we have been lacking in meetings. IRC meetings have not been very successful. We used to have really good meetings in the past in person but we lost the resources to have those.
22:28 < huats> doctormo, leftyfb when you said to the team that there was a reapproval approching, did you had any reaction ?
22:29 < czajkowski> ok as a solution there would it help for the loco council to possibly idle in your irc channel, we have done for other teams and help
22:29 < leftyfb> The only thing I think being unapproved will change is for us to have even less resources to do the few things we are in fact doing
22:29 < huats> leftyfb, apparently you met for the Ubuntu Hours, have you mention that during these events ?
22:29 < doctormo> leftyfb: I agree, we'll have no shipit, but don't forget we use our own resources for everything else.
22:29 < paultag|remote> i was there huats and it was casually discussed
22:30 < leftyfb> huats: I have been to one Ubuntu hour at which time I had to be on the phone the entire time for a support/personal issue
22:30 < huats> paultag|remote, and the general feeling ?
22:30 < huats> leftyfb, ok
22:30 < leftyfb> czajkowski: what do you mean by idle our IRC channel?
22:30 < leftyfb> I don't think removing resources at this point is going to help anything
22:30 < czajkowski> leftyfb: as in we can join and be there for Q&A and possibly run some sessions on how to get involved
22:31 < paultag|remote> huats lack of urgancy but mosty optimistic because of a recent event that was huge
22:31 < leftyfb> I don't have an immediate solution as I am partially to blame for lack of time in helping run things
22:31 < czajkowski> we've done it for the israel loco
22:31 < popey> it happens leftyfb 
22:31 < doctormo> leftyfb: czajkowski means some folks would stay on in #ubuntu-us-ma to watch and help if needed.
22:31 < doctormo> Although paultag has been there for a while now, without much change.
22:32 < paultag|remote> true.
22:32 < doctormo> If only we didn't have all these bloody universities killing our recruitment.
22:32 < huats> paultag|remote, ok
22:32 < leftyfb> I think our team is full of a lot of very talented and motivated people, but at the same time, very busy in their everyday lives.
22:33 < popey> recruitment drive at unis doctormo ?
22:33 < leftyfb> btw: I just added a missing event to our wiki page
22:33 < popey> summer things to do for students on recess?
22:33 < doctormo> popey: Contacts are hard to find and they frown on advertising without invitation.
22:33 < popey> k
22:34 < popey> talks at computer societies?
22:34 < huats> doctormo, I am very very surprised that you dont get many people in  uiversities indeed
