This is summary of the UMC team weekly meeting, that took place on Wed. August 30th, 2007 on Freenode in #elisa.
Planning the next release (0.3.2) that is due for the 26th of september:
plugin management system: easy browsing and installation of plugins
personal video recorder (PVR) infrastructure work
- easing creation of user interface oriented plugins
New theme by Christophe: https://code.fluendo.com/elisa/trac/wiki/chris_theme It needs to be experimented and it is likely to be kept as is for UMC. All comments welcome!
Still no news from Jono Bacon and the Ubuntu guys
Marketing Strike Force
Jeremy is back but not yet active. A project to federate blogs (Planet Elisa) about Elisa is under discussion.
Unofficial ubuntu packages are online (http://elisa.fluendo.com/2007/08/29/updated-feisty-packages/) Debian package is stuck: Pigment is still in the NEW queue. Elisa update to 0.3 is close to the update.
