== Welcome! ==
This is the wiki page of the Maine Local Community Team. We aim to provide free community support to users of the various flavours of Ubuntu as well as advocating the use of Ubuntu to individuals and organisations alike. We keep in touch via our active [[https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-us-me|email list]] and IRC chatroom. This group is for anyone in the Maine (but we welcome non-Maine residents) who uses or is interested in some flavour of Ubuntu or one of its derivitives. This group is for people of all technical abilities from I've-never-heard-of-linux all the way to I'm-an-Ubuntu-Master.

= Ubuntu-Maine IRC =

Along with the rest of the Ubuntu project, Ubuntu-Maine makes use of the [[http://www.freenode.net/|Freenode]] IRC servers. Most of the communication outside of the mailing list, takes place in the Ubuntu-Maine IRC channel. A lot of general chat also takes place here.

You can connect to the Ubuntu-Maine IRC channel using IRC clients such as Pidgin Internet Messenger, Empathy Instant Messenger, or XChat, by pointing your client to the Freenode network ('''irc.freenode.net''') and joining the '''#ubuntu-maine''' channel. You can even try it out [[http://ubuntumaine.org/irc|in your web browser]] but after a while most people prefer to use a desktop client.

'''Note:''' Many irc clients have "Freenode" listed as a selectable network. Once connected in a graphical IRC client you can select the channel. Alternatively (and in command-line IRC clients) you can join a channel with the '''/join''' command, for example '''/join #ubuntu-maine'''.

== Channel Guidelines ==

While in the Ubuntu-Maine IRC channel (and in any Ubuntu channel) you are expected to abide by the [[http://ubuntu.com/community/conduct|Ubuntu Code of Conduct]] (CoC). Most of what is applicable to the IRC Channel can be summarised as follows (taken from [[http://www.ubuntu.com/community/conduct|ubuntu.com]]):

'''''Be respectful.''' The Ubuntu community and its members treat one another with respect. Everyone can make a valuable contribution to Ubuntu. We may not always agree, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behaviour and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It's important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. We expect members of the Ubuntu community to be respectful when dealing with other contributors as well as with people outside the Ubuntu project, and with users of Ubuntu.''

=== Language guidelines ===
 1. Mild swearing is ok, as long as it isn't excessive or directed at a person.
 1. Any other bad language will result in a warning, or a kick at the operators discretion.
== How do I join? ==
There is no official process to join, however if you join the [[https://launchpad.net/people/ubuntu-maine|launchpad team]] you are then able to vote in polls organised by the group. Discussion happens on the [[http://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-maine|mailing list]] which you are free to join. There is also an active group of members who chat in real time on IRC in the #ubuntu-maine channel on irc.freenode.net.
Line 26: Line 13:
Meetings for ubuntu-maine usually happen once a month, in #ubuntu-maine-meeting on irc.freenode.net.
Line 27: Line 15:
The Ubuntu-Maine team's meetings also take place in the IRC Channel. Currently these meetings are held on an irregular basis. Anyone is welcome to drop in for the meetings, even if only to eavesdrop. The next meeting agenda is located on [[MaineTeamMeetingAgenda]]. Please feel free to read this before the meeting, or add your own agenda items.

== IRC Ops ==
