16:03 < czajkowski> well here is the update, Canonical have invested a lot of money in the once off gifts for locoteams who are approved
16:03 < czajkowski> and out over the 70 teams less than half have applied for them
16:03 -!- infoturtle_ [9f866008@gateway/web/freenode/ip.159.134.96.8] has joined #ubuntu-meeting
16:03 < czajkowski> with that in mind there doesnt seem to be an interest in stuf from the store to be put there
16:03 < JanC> hm...
16:03 < czajkowski> what they have said is the art work will be available and the dimensions of the banners will be made available as it is possible cheaper to purchase in other counteries
16:04 < czajkowski> sorry
16:04 < czajkowski> hope that helps
16:04 < czajkowski> moving on
16:04 < JanC> well, we know we don't have to wait to see what Canonical has to offer then  ;)

16:04 < czajkowski> [TOPIC] Uniformity of Team Names
16:04 < MootBot> New Topic:  Uniformity of Team Names
16:05 < JanC> (I think not all approved teams are still active though, etc.)
16:05 < czajkowski> this was brought up at UDS and has been on the back burner for the LC until now.
16:05 < czajkowski> [link] http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/
16:05 < MootBot> LINK received:  http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/
16:06 < czajkowski> at present the DISPLAY name here is rather messy looking and we are proposing to standardise this
16:06 < czajkowski> there is a mail in draft by itnet7 and us that will go out to loco contacts this week
16:06 < czajkowski> and we hope to refine it with the help of loco contacts
16:07 < czajkowski> so in the coming months we'd hope to see all the names displayed easier to read and also make it easier to find a team as it'll be named the same across the board
16:07 < czajkowski> again more information will be on this via the loco contacts mailing list and our new Loco council BLOG ! :D
16:07 -!- Captainkrtek [~anon@pdpc/supporter/student/captainkrtek] has joined #ubuntu-meeting

16:11 < C3s4r> czajkowski, well, actually things are going great, the team has focused on the work of the dissemination of ubuntu in the country.
16:11 < C3s4r> upps
16:11 < C3s4r> czajkowski, sorry for my bad English.
16:11 < czajkowski> C3s4r: don't worry :) really

16:11 < czajkowski> if you need a help just ask him
16:11 < leogg> :D
16:12 < keffie_jayx> I could also help ;)
16:12 < C3s4r> czajkowski, Ubuntu-ve at the beginning of its activities had little activity, but shortly after, because of the knowledge and responsibility that comes with being a team approved by the Ubuntu community, which is why for 3 years now the community has grown to 200% taking super important roles in the country and also international,
16:12 < czajkowski> C3s4r: so who does your team reports well done! very good
16:12 < leogg> C3s4r, your English is just fine!
16:12 < czajkowski> yes you can see your events have grown over the years
16:12 < czajkowski> well done
16:12 < C3s4r> czajkowski, example was when a member of Ubuntu-ve had the opportunity to participate in the Summit Developert Ubuntu, this fills us with pride that we all have the same opportunity to disseminate and help the Ubuntu project.
16:12 < czajkowski> C3s4r: what as a team do you find the hardest thing for you ?
16:12 < czajkowski> C3s4r: yes I got to meet keffie_jayx he's great!
16:13 < C3s4r> czajkowski, Our participation in local events have been very good, as to have members in every state in our country, covering every corner to publicize our work without discrimination of gender in our LoCo Team has existed since people with disabilities as entrepreneurs girls that live in the Free Software community in Venezuela.
16:13 -!- robbiew [~RobbieWil@99-156-84-159.lightspeed.austtx.sbcglobal.net] has quit [Quit: Peace, Love, and Soul!]
16:13 < keffie_jayx> czajkowski: participating in global events is difficult when a) people do not develop, nor participate in development b) language is a barrier
16:14 < czajkowski> keffie_jayx: ok thanks
16:14 < czajkowski> well it's a great application and I've no other questions to ask
16:14 < leogg> keffie_jayx, but you have some experience with development, eg. turpial?
16:14 < itnet7> The re-approval application really was nice work, and highlighted a lot of what you do, we all appreciate it
16:15 < keffie_jayx> leogg: picking up the ropes, as a team we could be more involved in global jams et all
16:15 -!- robbiew [~RobbieWil@99-156-84-159.lightspeed.austtx.sbcglobal.net] has joined #ubuntu-meeting

16:15 < czajkowski> good that you cna highlight that
16:15 < keffie_jayx> leogg: that case of turpial was special, we got to work with the debian folks in venezuela
16:16 < leogg> keffie_jayx, indeed, the language barrier is not easy to overcome though
16:16 < leogg> keffie_jayx, that's great!

16:27 < laoshi> and we have 1 request for being mentored
16:27 < czajkowski> laoshi: what does being an approved team mean to the team ?
16:28 < laoshi> we have tried to have som categories like translation, support, arrangements etc
16:28 < leogg> laoshi, cool
16:28 < laoshi> it means that we will be able to carry on furthering the use of ubuntu with some autohority
16:29 < czajkowski> laoshi: ok, on http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-dk  with the new policy coming  into place, your team will have to change the display name to Ubuntu denmark loco team just fyi

16:30 -!- jacob [jacobirc@ubuntu/member/jacob] has joined #ubuntu-meeting
16:30 < laoshi> czajkowski, I think I'll have to let sbc answer - the offer came as I was getting into position as loco contact
16:30 < czajkowski> laoshi: ok thanks
16:30 < czajkowski> sbc: ?
16:30 < sbc> sbc: Don
16:30 < pixiarvai> huats,  in the case im will be mentor, and will help him in the support, so he can try more, and still have a "backup"
16:31 < sbc> sbc: Don't think we have. Not that i'm aware anyway.
16:31 < czajkowski> sbc: ok, any reason why, as canonical have put this together for approved teams?
16:32 < sbc> Our previous loco contact left for a year in australia, and there might have been a period of no one knowing if it was their job or not. I personally haven't heard of this offer :)
16:32 < czajkowski> ok
16:32 < czajkowski> sbc: can you talk to huats after this meeting please
16:32 < laoshi> sorry
16:32 < czajkowski> ok, one final question before we vote
16:32 < sbc> czajkowski: will do.
16:32 < czajkowski> do you team reports??
16:33 < sbc> It has properly been quite a while. It is one of those jobs that noone really want's to do, to be honest.
16:34 < czajkowski> sbc: ok while it's not one people want to do
16:34 < laoshi> not to my awareness - but the reapproval application gave me insights into what is happening, and can be modelled after tgat
16:34 < laoshi> that
16:34 < czajkowski> it is important as it shares with the greated community how teams are doing

16:48 < theirishpenguin> come on ireland! ubuntu-ie!
16:48 < ebel> though there are several ubuntu-ie'ers here now
16:48  * tdr112 is supporting ireland too
16:48 < paultag> ebel: so give us a bit of a feel for your team, please :)
16:48 < jpich> go ireland go :)
16:48 < moylan> yay ebel!
16:48 < paultag> ebel: what are some things you do really well, and what are some things that need work?
16:48 < mokmeister> c'mon ubuntu-ie!
16:49 < ebel> Well, we hold regular monthly irc meeetings
16:49 < ebel> and had regular monthly ubuntu hours in several placves
16:49 < ebel> we have a mailing list, facebook, twitter and identica accounts for communication
16:49 < paultag> team reports look nice
16:49 < ebel> we do regular release parties aswell
16:49 < itnet7> ebel, How does work get distributed among the team?
16:50 < czajkowski> tdr112: does an amazing job on the team reports
16:50 < ebel> We're a quite loosely organised team, we don't have really have commitees or positions of power
16:50 < tdr112> we could do more work on getting ubuntu event going on outside of dublin , we are working on this
16:50 < ebel> when we decide that something needs to be done, people volunteer (or not)
16:50 < ebel> A lot of regular 'grunt' work is has usually been handled by regular.
16:50 < tdr112> over the last two years we have moved from only doing events in dublin to more events all around ireland
16:51 < ebel> e.g. myself or airurando chair irc meetings, tdr112 does the monthly reports
16:51 -!- asoktheintern [~slibuntu@frink.nuigalway.ie] has joined #ubuntu-meeting
16:51 < czajkowski> we've been lucky getting colleges and hackerspaces on board
16:51 < itnet7> good to hear tdr112 
16:51 < ebel> we're seeing the ubuntu community outside dublin (the capital city with ~25% population) expand
16:52 < airurando> yes colleges and Hackerspaces help us greatly with events and Cd distribution efforts
16:52 < ebel> we're seeing regular events in cork, limerick and galway (the next largest cities)
16:52 < itnet7> ebel, all of you have done a great job! Re-Approval Applications like this really make it easy to see all of the great work and progress!
16:52 < czajkowski> sending cds to the colleges has worked out well
16:52 < leogg> airurando, how do you do the cd distribution thing?
16:52 < ebel> and resources are distributed accordingly. e.g. the loco banner is down in limerick(ish) for an event there
16:53 < infoturtle_> still in limerick
16:53 < ebel> CDs have been distributed all over the country this release and last release.
16:53 < paultag> Now this might be an odd question, but does anyone speak gaelic (and do translation work) ?
16:53 < ebel> infoturtle_: I keep thinking you're in clare! :P
16:53 < asoktheintern> I have done a little irish translation work
16:53 < airurando> leogg we have developed relationships with Colloege Comp Socs and City Hackerspaces.
16:53 < mokmeister> ebel: I'm in Clare
16:53 < czajkowski> paultag: we do have a few people but we strugle to get people to do some, but we get some done each cycle
16:53 < tdr112> paultag: not that many people do
16:53 < leogg> airurando, that's great!
16:53 < airurando> we send some CDs to each following each release
16:53 < paultag> tdr112: yeah, it's not very common these days, from what I've read
16:53 < ebel> paultag: not many people (in ireland) speak irish (aka gaelic)
16:54 < paultag> ebel: aye :)
16:54 -!- AJenbo [~anders@x1-6-00-26-f2-d4-88-e8.k1063.webspeed.dk] has left #ubuntu-meeting ["Ex-Chat"]
16:54 < airurando> leogg we hope to develop these links further and possibly have more joint events
16:54 < ebel> however there is some irish translation happening in a hap-hazard way.
16:54 < paultag> What do you see as what you need to work on this next cycle?
16:54 < leogg> airurando, teaming up with colleges is always a good idea!
16:55 < paultag> And, additionally, how does being approved help those goals?
16:55 < airurando> leogg definitely
16:55 < ebel> well to keep going with what we have is important. we want to ensure that there are still ubuntu events happening in ireland and dublin and beyond
