10:00 Ubugtu Current time in Etc/UTC: July 11 2006, 20:00:08 - Current meeting: Community Council in 0 minute 10:00 Seveas Kamion, ping === elmo [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:00 Seveas hi elmo 10:01 elmo hi 10:03 nixternal JoeyStanford how is everything? 10:03 Kamion yeah, I'm here 10:03 JoeyStanford Hi Nix! Good thanks 10:03 JoeyStanford I figured I'd uncloak for the meeting :-) 10:03 Seveas Kamion, will we see sabdfl or mako too? 10:04 Kamion sabdfl is on holiday 10:04 elmo mako said he'd make it === mako [email@example.com] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:05 Seveas hi mako 10:05 mako greetings 10:06 elmo ok, we've got quorum, shall we get started? 10:06 Seveas mdz, are you around? 10:07 Sp4rKy i'm back 10:07 Seveas wb 10:08 elmo seveas: "Two Ubuntu members have also become Freenode staff" - who are they? 10:08 Seveas elmo, rob and nalioth 10:08 Seveas actually, there are 3 now: hedgemage too 10:08 elmo ok 10:08 mdz Seveas: I am; am I needed? 10:09 Seveas mdz, you've put the first item on the agenda === mako is getting up to speed.. i'm coming straight out of another irc meeting 10:09 mdz I put that on the agenda before the previous meeting, after talking with mako 10:09 mdz I assumed it had already been discussed since comments were added to the wiki 10:09 Seveas at the previous meeting it was moved to this one === cbx33 [n=pete@ubuntu/member/cbx33] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:10 mdz as you pointed out, this is a rather old proposal 10:10 mdz but I think the issues it raises are still valid 10:10 mdz mako was in agreement when we spoke about it === mako nods 10:11 mako i'm reading the things posted to the spec 10:11 mdz I acknowledge that some members of the community are working well with the FreeNode staff 10:11 mdz but I think that's equally possible elsewhere === j_baer__ [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:12 mdz essentially all of the non-Ubuntu project channels I follow have moved to OFTC 10:12 mako that's been true for me as well 10:12 Seveas and why should we follow? 10:13 mako there are a series of reasons on and alluded to on the specification 10:13 elmo Seveas: I regularly see the must register to send messages damage hurt users, f.e. 10:13 Seveas elmo, that is a measure against spam 10:13 Sp4rKy please, when does the CC start ? 10:13 mako Sp4rKy: it's going on now 10:13 Seveas Sp4rKy, 13 minutes ago 10:14 gnomefreak Sp4rKy: started 10:14 sharms2 I would say from a users point of view it's very hard to find a irc admin to get help from 10:14 gnomefreak who has this spec page handy? 10:14 elmo Seveas: I know what it is, but it regularly bites new users trying to contact others 10:14 mako Seveas: that's fine, but it seems to be handled different and less inconveniently for users on other networks, including OFTC 10:14 Seveas "Freenode is technically and politically erratic" is a bunch of FUD instead of concrete arguments === andyp [email@example.com] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:14 jenda Does OFTC require registration to send messages? (Sorry for ignorance)? 10:14 elmo jenda: no 10:14 Seveas mako, there's a big difference in size between oftc and freenode 10:14 jenda thx 10:14 mdz gnomefreak: it's on the agenda 10:14 Seveas freenode is much larger and thus a more attractive target 10:14 elmo Seveas: OFTC recently took on Debian - they can handle us 10:15 gnomefreak mdz: ty 10:15 mako Seveas: nobody disagreeing with that, but that is something that we can take advantage of as well 10:15 mdz gnomefreak: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommunityCouncilAgenda 10:15 gnomefreak ty 10:15 sivang I'm also bitten by this, everytime my client disconnects and reconnects, and I send PMs to folks not even noticing they don't receive it. 10:15 Sp4rKy mako, Seveas gnomefreak k, so what should i do when i'm added to Member candidates for consideration 10:15 Seveas Sp4rKy, just wait. 10:15 Kamion Sp4rKy: wait until the proper point in the meeting 10:15 gnomefreak Sp4rKy: wait till Seveas calls you 10:15 Sp4rKy k 10:15 Sp4rKy thx 10:15 mdz I'm happy with how Debian has turned out on OFTC 10:15 elmo bye === dinda [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:16 Seveas I'm happy with how Ubuntu turned out on Freenode 10:16 Seveas It's settled and working very nice 10:16 elmo Debian's OFTC migration even provides us with a working example of how to do it 10:16 Seveas moving would disrupt that a lot === nixternal agrees with Seveas as there seems to be a lot of people settled in 10:17 gnomefreak maybe just me but i have seen alot of people from OTFC spamming in #ubuntu for the last few weeks is this something we have to look foward to if we move? 10:17 elmo Seveas: that's your opinion, and it's great, but you're blithely ignoring problems like the must register stuff which are real problems and I see effect different people every week 10:17 jenda I'll second that. Imagine the confusion of moving the thousands of people. 10:17 mdz gnomefreak: "people from OFTC"? 10:17 elmo jenda: it's not hard, as I said, Debian did it 10:17 Kamion gnomefreak: could you elaborate on that statement please? 10:17 mdz jenda: Debian moved more people than we did 10:17 Seveas elmo, I'm not ignoring that, I'm just seeing that differently 10:17 jenda Freenode doesn't require registration - #ubuntu does. 10:17 jenda OK 10:17 Seveas jenda, no, freenode does - for pm's 10:18 mako Seveas: at the conference we had people unable to connect for msot of hte first day 10:18 sivang we could also provide shipped IRC clients with config for OFTC for that matter 10:18 mako Seveas: eventually, i got ahold of lilo and eventually he was able to fix it === JoeyStanford notices that OFTC appears to be more community oriented and might fit better simply on that basis with Ubuntu than Freenode. Noting of course he has not experienced any problems with Freenode. 10:18 nixternal which i like the registration, as it stops people from ghosting nicknames as well === jenda mumbles about +6 10:18 mdz Seveas: that happens pretty much every time we have a conference === sryan [email@example.com] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:18 erdalronahi shipped IRC clients are a good idea 10:18 mako nixternal: there are registered nicks on oftc as well 10:18 Seveas mako, why do you think limiting connections is a bad idea? 10:18 Kamion yeah, it's been happening since Oxford in mid-2004 10:18 nixternal mako: thank you for the clarification... ;) 10:18 mako Seveas: it's not that i think it's a bad idea 10:18 Seveas mdz, for paris that was handled because someone (me) actually poked freenode staff in time 10:19 mako Seveas: but when we have to spend half a day being blocked as a result, it's a major inconveience 10:19 gnomefreak mdz: yes there have beena few bot bombs (i guess is what the name for them is) is has OFTC before it shows the user name and in purple comming in the channel and just saying things like f ubuntu bleh bleh bleh === Amaranth [n=amaranth@ubuntu/member/amaranth] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:19 elmo Seveas: and for all your claims of close ties, it still takes at least half a day to sort out ... each time... 10:19 Kamion gnomefreak: your inference that it's "people from OFTC" seems weak at best 10:19 mdz gnomefreak: I don't think you can take that as an indication that those people represent OFTC 10:19 Seveas elmo, for paris it took 5 minutes. 10:19 Amaranth this wasn't on the calendar :/ 10:20 Seveas for other conferences: no one took the trouble to poke freenode staff 10:20 mako Seveas: it took 6 hours from the time i first messaged the only staff member online 10:20 Seveas IN TIME 10:20 elmo Seveas: dude. your reality does not match our reality 10:20 mako Seveas: there were apparently some technical problem that kept the fix from taking hold 10:21 Seveas elmo, my reality is that freenode works really well for #ubuntu and related channels and that none of the active community want to move === slomo_ [n=slomo@ubuntu/member/slomo] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:21 elmo Seveas: sigh. look, I'm talking about a very specific example. you're claiming that freenode was working for UDSP "on time". we were there. it wasn't. === Admiral_proFTW [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:22 mdz Seveas: I think some of the people participating in this meeting qualify as active community ;-) 10:22 Seveas mdz, I mean #ubuntu community 10:22 Kamion I think #ubuntu-devel matters too 10:22 mako oftc is run by a democratically elected board, they have a great track record for technical reliability and responsiveness, they have recently started hosting debian which is both similar in size and overlap.. they also seem to be a less annoying/confusing to new users in regards to msgs 10:22 mdz Seveas: I expect many of them neither know nor care which IRC network they use 10:22 Kamion I don't particularly want to turn this into a fight between #ubuntu and #ubuntu-devel though 10:22 Seveas elmo, it may have failed later (heard that from lilo), but he was working on that. It worked immediately after I asked him though 10:23 nixternal brief opinion if i may do so....if there are issues with freenode, why not take them up the staff and see if they can fix the issues to supply ubuntu with what it needs..just like a new user with ubuntu, we want to know their issues, instead of them just leaving for something else 10:23 mako freenode is not oppressively bad.. but i think there's a fair use that oftc might be a better match 10:23 nixternal and if it doesn't get fixed/resolved, then look at moving elsewhere (oftc) if warranted? 10:23 mako mdz: except perhaps, when their private msgs don't work :) === nixternal is keeping an open mind, as it does't matter where i hang out, as long as it is Ubuntu!!! ;) 10:24 sivang mako: is there some protection against someone else taking your nick ? do they support any sort of registration ? 10:24 mako sivang: of course 10:24 elmo sivang: yes, they have services 10:24 mdz sivang: it works exactly the same way 10:24 mako sivang: it would be indistinguishable 10:24 sivang mdz, elmo, mako : I'm sold :-) 10:25 Seveas mako, freenode is increasingly good to us. In case of channel problems we have close ties to active staff. For OFTC that may eventually work too, but don't fix if it ain't broken 10:25 JoeyStanford Are there any assurances that OFTC will be around for the long haul? 10:25 Seveas JoeyStanford, yes 10:25 mako Seveas: you also need to recognize that there is now a history of strange behavior in relation to canonical channels by the (undemocratically elected) freenode staff 10:25 Seveas mako, I do, but #canonical != #ubuntu 10:25 mdz mako: that's not a CC issue though 10:26 Amaranth debian had it easy, they have irc.debian.org 10:26 mako a history of erratic behavior by the people running the network is something working keeping in mind 10:27 Seveas mako, lilo will in the short term be much less visible on the network if you're concerned about that 10:27 Kamion Amaranth: (that's something we can and should introduce) 10:27 mako i really don't have a grudge against lilo.. he's been very helpful to me every time i've talked to him 10:27 gnomefreak i like that idea alot 10:27 mdz Amaranth: and we have irc.ubuntu.com 10:27 Amaranth Kamion: But by default people have been getting connected to "irc.freenode.net", no? === uniq [n=frode@ubuntu/member/frode] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:27 mdz Amaranth: by default (at least in xchat) they use "Ubuntu Servers" 10:28 JoeyStanford FWIW: We always state that "Debian is the rock that Ubuntu is built on." If the Debian community found OFTC good enough to move, OFTC operates in a similar manner as Ubuntu does, and many other groups have already migrated, it would seem to me that there is sufficient justifcation for us to move as well. 10:28 LaserJock mdz: which is irc.freenode.net, no? 10:28 mdz LaserJock: yes, but easily changed 10:28 LaserJock of course, just wondered 10:28 mdz it's separate from the FreeNode server profile 10:29 LaserJock right 10:29 Amaranth mdz: but warty, hoary, breezy, and dapper users are still connecting to irc.freenode.net 10:29 Seveas as they should be... 10:29 Amaranth mdz: so you'd have to manually tell them to move 10:29 mdz Amaranth: warty is EOL, and the others can be changed via -updates 10:30 Amaranth hmm, i thought that stuff got copied into ~/.xchat2/ if you changed something 10:30 Kamion it's also easy to put "channel has moved" notices up 10:30 juantao_ pardon, might I speak? 10:30 Kamion as elmo said, Debian have been through all this 10:30 Seveas juantao_, sure 10:30 juantao_ the meeting is 30 minutes old and my lunch break is half over, any chance we can move along to other items? 10:30 Amaranth Kamion: hehe, freenode will close the channel 10:30 Seveas juantao_, not before this is resolved 10:30 Kamion Amaranth: *shrug* lasts long enough 10:30 juantao_ k === diaz [n=diaz@p5489DB77.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:31 mdz I don't think that concerns about the transition should be a consideration here; as stated, Debian made this transition without much trouble at all === mako nods 10:31 Amaranth ok, forget that part for now 10:31 Kamion it seems entirely political, not technical 10:32 Seveas mdz, apart from the /msg-needs-registration and lilo-annoyance, are there any reasons to move? 10:32 Kamion (as far as implementation goes) 10:32 sharms2 lack of help from ops for regular users 10:32 mako Kamion: well, the problem we have now is political, the reasons to move are both 10:32 mdz Seveas: yes, another concrete reason already raised was the repeated problems we have at conferences 10:32 Amaranth sharms2: How does moving to another network fix that? 10:32 Kamion mako: right, I realised that after speaking and tried to clarify in the parenthesis 10:32 elmo Seveas: and the behaviour of staff in #canonical 10:32 Seveas mdz, and I already stated the solution to that too 10:33 Seveas elmo, #canonical != #ubuntu === slomo_ [n=slomo@ubuntu/member/slomo] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:33 Kamion that doesn't stop it mattering 10:33 elmo Seveas: dude, seriously are you reading what people write? 10:33 mdz Seveas: you haven't acknowledged that the "solution" you proposed is exactly what we did in Paris, and it *didn't work* 10:33 elmo seveas: as mako already pointed out, it doesn't matter that #canonical != #ubuntu, it demonstrates a problem with how the staff behave, and how they behave affects _all_ channels including #ubuntu 10:33 Amaranth Interesting, I didn't know a private, password protected channel was allowed on freenode. 10:33 mdz it seriously disrupted the event (again) 10:33 Seveas mdz, due to technical problems as has been said - do you think OFTC will be problem free> 10:34 Seveas elmo, I've never seen staff misbehave in any ubuntu channel so far 10:34 mdz Seveas: no, but in my experience it has fewer problems 10:34 mdz mako's point about governance is also valid 10:34 Seveas mdz, that's just a matter of size... 10:34 elmo Seveas: ... so are you saying we're making it up, or do our experiences just not count or what? 10:34 mako Seveas: i've been on both networks simultaneously for 3 years now 10:34 sryan Why not move to EFnet? :) 10:35 Seveas mdz, that'll change - HedgeMage is working on getting people from projects on the board 10:35 mako Seveas: and my experience has been that things have been easier and more quickly fixed on oftc 10:35 mdz my experience is similar to mako's 10:36 mdz and additionally I'm tired of having to keep track of two networks ;-) 10:36 Seveas OFTC has also had less bot attacks and other annoying losers trying to keep staff over-busy 10:36 jenda mdz: BTW, the move would bring that burden upon many of us. 10:36 Kamion Amaranth: it is; but we've had problems with staff not respecting privacy 10:36 mako i have never attempted to move a project from OFTC to freenode 10:36 mako but i've seen a very steady stream of project move 10:36 mako culminating with debian recently 10:36 Amaranth mdz: I'm already in 3 networks, I really don't want a 4th. 10:36 mako it's basically only GNU projects and Ubuntu that are left here that i've involved with 10:37 mako Amaranth: i'm on 4, we learn to deal :) 10:37 Seveas mako: gentoo, php, django - to name a few that are here... 10:37 Amaranth everyone is on freenode ;) 10:37 mdz mako: is freenode a matter of GNU policy, or just status quo? 10:37 mako mdz: not sure 10:37 elmo Seveas: yeah, because we have so much cross pollination with gentoo, compared to, err, Debian 10:38 mdz yes, Debian alone is a pretty compelling reason 10:38 Seveas elmo, as a matter of fact #ubuntu and #debian don't have that much overlap 10:38 Amaranth #python is on freenode too, although i think they have it on oftc too 10:38 elmo Seveas: argh, dude, Ubuntu is not just #ubuntu 10:38 mako Seveas: you should look at the governance information for oftc 10:38 mako Seveas: it's pretty compelling 10:38 mjg59 Seveas: Little overlap between user channels is hardly surprising 10:38 Seveas elmo, no, but moving would be the hardest for #ubuntu with 800+ users 10:38 elmo Seveas: #ubuntu-devel is just as important a part of Ubuntu 10:38 mako Seveas: their entire staff/board is democratically election and dispute resolution goes through a democratic channel === JoeyStanford wonders about irc.ubuntu.com hosted by OFTC 10:38 sivang mako: similar to the CC sort of 10:39 elmo Seveas: no. it would not be. that is a straw man. as you've been told multiple times. Debian migrated larger channels and it was painless 10:39 jenda JoeyStanford: that would probably be a forward, just like irc.debian,org 10:39 mako sivang: it's better than us! :) 10:39 Seveas elmo, at the time #debian moved. #ubuntu already was bigger 10:39 mako Seveas: more or less the the same 10:40 Seveas ~100 users 10:40 mako Seveas: in any case, nobody is suggesting doing this if OFTC couldn't handle it 10:40 jenda Is that really that important? 10:40 Kamion ~100 users> that would be 12% then, basically statistical noise at that point 10:40 Kamion if you can migrate a 700-user channel, you can migrate an 800-user channel 10:40 sivang mako: heh === nalioth [i=nalioth@freenode/staff/ubuntu.member.nalioth] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:41 Amaranth If you're going to do it it has to be all at once for basically everything but #ubuntu. 10:41 Amaranth Otherwise it gets confusing. 10:41 elmo please, let's not discuss migration strategies 10:41 sivang maybe we can have some folks go to talk to them, tell them we're interested, lay out what we require and see if it can be provided before doing the move? 10:41 Amaranth elmo: There is nothing else to discuss. 10:41 mako you can also look at the http://www.oftc.net/oftc/Constitution 10:41 mako it's great :) 10:41 elmo Amaranth: of course there is. whether we should or not 10:41 nixternal i know when i was an op for ETG years ago, one of my channels was on 2 networks, and we utilized a bot to combine them until everyone moved over..the bot would link the 2 channels on the same network..this may also limit the issues with a transfer 10:42 Amaranth elmo: It's the same argument back and forth though, perhaps it's time for a vote? 10:42 Amaranth nixternal: #python had one of those too for talking to oftc users 10:42 elmo let's not have a vote, but I would like to hear from anyone other than Seveas who is -1 on this 10:42 elmo (I'm not discounting Seveas, it's just his vote is pretty damn obvious at this stage) 10:43 Amaranth Well, I think it's a waste of time. 10:43 Seveas elmo, you've seen last week when there were many more others present 10:43 DBO I dont think we should move 10:43 mako that's right, i'm not at all comfortable voting on this 10:43 elmo DBO: why? 10:43 Amaranth Other than that, whatever you decide. 10:43 Seveas everybody but the CC (who didn't say much then) was against 10:43 DBO I deal with needy users every day in #ubuntu, I put in maybe 60 hours a week during the non-summer months, and they are confused enough 10:43 mjg59 DBO: How are they getting to #ubuntu? 10:43 nixternal what about creating a poll for members/teams/users to vote also, as i think their opinions on something this great should be looked at 10:44 mako Seveas: that's not true, some people asked questions and few people offered a strong opniion either way 10:44 sharms2 if irc.ubuntu.com forwards to oftc, how would that confuse anyone? 10:44 Seveas mako, that's not what I saw last week... 10:44 DBO mjg59, most of them automatic, lots are using irssi, or whatever when their x server is broke 10:44 elmo Seveas: sorry, but my recollection matches makos 10:44 Amaranth confusing users is still a migration issue === jenda = -1 on moving 10:44 mjg59 DBO: Right. So if the default config is to hit irc.ubuntu.com, then changing will change nothing for them 10:44 elmo Seveas: but we can go over the logs later 10:44 elmo jenda: again, why? 10:44 elmo sorry, let me be clearer 10:44 mako Seveas: you can't ask me to come up with an opinion based on what *you* saw last week 10:44 elmo let's not have a vote, but I would like to hear from anyone other than Seveas who is -1 on this _and why_ 10:45 mako Seveas: i've read what you've put on the wiki and acknowledge your points === JoeyStanford = +1 on the move 10:45 mako i also acknowledge Amaranth's point that the vast majority of people simply won't care 10:45 Kamion I would also like us to consider moving Ubuntu development channels even if the user channels don't move 10:45 DBO The move strikes me as a short term solution to a long term issue. Anywhere we go there will be server issues, botter issues, DCC idiots 10:45 Kamion because, honestly, I don't think it matters much for most ordinary users whether the development channels are on the same network 10:45 uniq from reading on oftc.net is looks very ubuntuish. democratic and nice. 10:46 elmo Kamion: good point 10:46 jenda If it ain't broken don't fix it approach: I don't think we should move only for political reasons, and the technical ones seem overlookable. 10:46 nixternal i am +1/-1 on it, 50/50, as i believe getting information from current users of freenode in the #ubuntu related channels, should be able to voice an opinion for something this large of an ordeal 10:46 DBO Kamion, I agree with that 10:46 mako we know how to a transition, i suspect we could do it painlessly, without confusing, and withough the vast vast number of users even noticing 10:46 jenda OTOH, I'm not that far from 'not caring' either: except I'm afraid we might lose some people, who won't want to move. === j_ack [n=rudi@p508D9CA9.dip0.t-ipconnect.de] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 10:46 nixternal truthfully, no matter where the servers are for me, i am still going to help Ubuntu...however my experience here has been very good, as I have had no problems with anybody or anyone 10:46 sivang mako: we just need to make sure we have cloaks, which I kind'of got used to, but probably they have nice rules about that as well. 10:46 mako jenda: there is already a small group in #ubuntu on OFTC 10:47 JoeyStanford Nixternal: Same here 10:47 mako jenda: i suspect a small group would stay onf reenode if we moved 10:47 mjg59 mako: It's likely that the channel would be closed 10:47 nalioth apologies for my tardiness, but is there a reason for moving? 10:47 mako mjg59: ah 10:47 jenda Most probably true. 10:47 mjg59 mako: Though that doesn't seem to have happened to #debian, so 10:47 mako nalioth: there is a relatively long series of reasons, please read the log 10:47 nealmcb I tend to agree with nixternal also. 10:48 mako sivang: there are cloaks and we could insure we had them on oftc 10:48 nixternal i can tell you this though, no matter where Ubuntu goes, I think the idiots who cause trouble on IRC servers, script kiddies mostly, i think will follow us because of how popular we are, and that is an easy way for them to express their jealousy 10:48 sharms2 Just because something is ok now, doesn't mean you shouldnt plan for the future. 10:48 mako Seveas: here's what i'm kind of worried about 10:48 mako this debate sort of simmered in debian for years 10:48 Seveas nixternal, most bot attacks target freenode because of its size, not ubuntu because of its popularity 10:48 jenda Another thing is... aren't cloaks a tidbit elitist? 10:48 Kamion nixternal: I reiterate my suggestion of moving development channels regardless; the numbers there are far less and the people involved are much easier to inform 10:49 ompaul jenda, they protect users from ddos === jenda does like his cloak, though :) 10:49 elmo ok, I don't think we're getting very far with this, can I make a suggestion: 10:49 sivang mako: cool, that's good. 10:49 nixternal and i understand that, but it will happen no matter which server is used..thats what i was tyring to get at 10:49 mako and it was clear to me that there was a lot of compatibilty between philosophy, decision-making, power, quick responses, overlap, etc. but nobody really wanted to rock the boat so thing really happened 10:49 jenda ompaul: I meant exclusive member cloaks. 10:49 elmo (1) we defer this to the next meeting, sabdfl is going to want to have a say in this, so we can't make any final decisions today anyway. AND 10:49 nealmcb Kamion: moving just some channels complicates the treatment of irc.ubuntu.com 10:49 mako elmo: that's right 10:49 elmo (2) both sides draw up pages on the wiki with their view of pros and cons 10:50 Kamion nealmcb: that's true, but developers can cope 10:50 ogra elmo, +1 10:50 elmo (3) and someone add the kamion-alternative to the wiki as a suggested fall back 10:50 jenda agreed 10:50 nixternal great point Kamion, but like i said, i am neither yay or nay on it, i just would like to see a larger community voice on the situation then what is currently being voiced...im with Ubuntu no matter where it's at ;) 10:50 ompaul elmo on that point +1 10:50 mdz elmo: (2) has already been done, though I suppose they could be expanded a bit 10:50 gnomefreak elmo: +1 10:50 mako sounds good :) 10:51 elmo mdz: the pro-move side could really be better documented, but yeah 10:51 nixternal elmo: +1 10:51 jenda 50 minutes :D 10:51 Kamion elmo: a LOT better documented 10:51 jenda +1 10:51 mdz mako: most of your ideas are missing from the page; could you add them? 10:51 Kamion from the position of somebody who mostly has trouble caring but who probably leans marginally towards pro-moving, it's pretty weak 10:51 nixternal my biggest concern is the newer users of irc...if you can get them to autoconnect wonderful!!! === gnomefreak is mainly concered with how stable are thier servers === jenda still doesn't see the reasons, so it would be great if they were on the wiki. 10:51 elmo I'll also try and add to the pro one, once mako is done, FWIW 10:51 mako mdz: yes! 10:52 mdz thanks 10:52 mako great 10:52 Kamion can we sort out irc.ubuntu.com and default clients and stuff ASAP no matter what? 10:52 elmo we should also document the migration stuff, etc. 10:52 elmo Kamion: domain exists, I've filed a bug in LP on all clients 10:52 mako Seveas: thanks for your input though, and for being patient 10:52 Kamion that can and should be done independently of the outcome of this 10:52 Kamion elmo: cool, thanks 10:52 mako Seveas: lets try to move forward constructively 10:52 Seveas mako, (and others): likewise 10:52 elmo ok. so. let's move on? 10:52 Seveas let's move on for now 10:53 mako great 10:53 mako new IRC ops 10:53 mako DBO, who we have already met briefly 10:53 DBO =) 10:53 mako and imbrandon 10:53 mako DBO: want to do a quick introduction? 10:53 Seveas next is less discussion: DBO is a very active #ubuntu helper and imbrandon is already op in #kubuntu - I would like them to reinforce the team 10:53 gnomefreak +1 on both of them 10:53 mako Seveas: how are you doing in terms of active staff? 10:54 Seveas gnomefreak, you don't vote -- the CC does 10:54 gnomefreak oops 10:54 nixternal lol 10:54 mako Seveas: is there an op list online somewhere? 10:54 Seveas mako, those two would be useful additions, some of the ops have become less active 10:54 Seveas mako, on the wiki 10:54 Seveas https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRCOperators 10:54 mako ah, that's what i was looking for 10:54 mako thanks === nixternal lets it be known that i am always online here, and is available if needed in the future 10:55 mako Seveas: well, we if you want to ask some folks on that list to retire, that might be good 10:55 mako but in any case 10:56 Amaranth oop, i don't have a wiki page anymore 10:56 mako does anyone have anything testimonials, positive or negative (can be private if absolutely necessary) about either DBO or imbrandon? 10:56 ompaul mako, I'll vouch for DBO as very good, and very useful === Lure [n=lure@ubuntu/member/lure] has joined #ubuntu-meeting === mako nods ompaul 10:56 DBO I did ask Madpilot to come today, but he was otherwise detained 10:57 nixternal imbrandon is a good op, as we work together quite a bit === Seveas gives both his +1 10:57 uniq mako: imbrandon is very helpfull and a good operator in #kubuntu. 10:57 Seveas err.. s#+1#\o/# 10:57 nixternal +1 uniq 10:57 Seveas DBO is very helpful in #ubuntu and entertaining in -offtopic - both are useful things 10:58 nalioth DBO and imbrandon will make fine ops 10:58 gnomefreak agreed 10:58 Seveas but most important: both DBO and imbrandon have a good dose of common sense 10:58 FunnyLookinHat I found DBO to be very helpful as well. He is extremely patient and works well to help users understand rather than just telling them what to do. === jenda nudges about signing the CoC...? 10:59 Amaranth While we're on this topic, are any of the developers in that list ever actually in #ubuntu anymore? 11:00 gnomefreak Amaranth: i see a few ive never seen dont know who they are either 11:00 mako Amaranth: i think its fair to say that most of the people from the first round are not active there 11:02 mako and most of the core-devs are from that group 11:02 mako in any case 11:02 mako i'm happy with both imbrandon and DBO on those recommendations on a quick review of their recent activity 11:02 mako Kamion, elmo: ? 11:03 LaserJock crimsun is often i n #ubuntu isn't he? 11:03 Seveas yes 11:03 ompaul LaserJock, yes 11:03 nalioth crimsun is everywhere 11:03 nixternal crimsun is everywhere 11:03 nixternal lol 11:03 mako heh 11:03 sivang and he also fires Molecules at other ones :) 11:03 gnomefreak LaserJock: yes 11:03 Kamion doesn't seem to be any opposition to those ops, so I'm happy to take the recommendations of those here 11:04 elmo wow, #ubuntu logs do bag things to galeon 11:04 gnomefreak thom i never see and fooishbar 11:04 Kamion DBO: what's your launchpad id? 11:04 Seveas gnomefreak, they're not in chanservs access list - I'll update the wikipage 11:04 gnomefreak ok 11:04 Kamion Daniel's more or less inactive Ubuntu-wise; Thom has been around more lately but I doubt he cares about #ubuntu ops any more 11:05 jenda elmo: tail does bad things to #ubuntu logs ;) 11:05 DBO Kamion, my current id is jasonsmith5, but due to a technical glitch (foobar gpg) been having issues with the CoC signing. I will however sign as soon as I can fix that (or grab antoher person for help) 11:05 gnomefreak also havent seen carlk in ages 11:05 ompaul Kamion, I'll walk him though it 11:05 DBO Kamion, scratch that, I mean Jassmith 11:05 Seveas gnomefreak, I've seen him recently 11:05 gnomefreak k 11:05 elmo anyway, both fine by me 11:06 Kamion DBO: ok, thanks 11:06 Kamion ok, we have a lot of locoteams to cover 11:06 Seveas -ChanServ- [DBO] has been added to the access list for #ubuntu with level  11:06 Seveas -ChanServ- [imbrandon] has been added to the access list for #ubuntu with level  11:07 Kamion are any of the locoteam representatives here?

My name is Joey Stanford and I would like to 11:07 JoeyStanford introduce the Colorado Local Community Team. Our wiki entry is: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ColoradoTeam (note the 11:07 JoeyStanford photos!!). === JoeyStanford appologizes for the format. He's at a client in California 11:07 erdalronahi erdalronahi is from ubuntu-ku and also here 11:08 JoeyStanford The Colorado Local Community Team (aka CoLoCo) advocates the use of Open Source software and Ubuntu Linux in the State 11:08 JoeyStanford of Colorado. This is done through CD Distribution, Team expansion, user-base support, and outreach programs. 11:08 JoeyStanford The Colorado 11:08 JoeyStanford Local Community Team is not meant to replace our local LUGS but rather enhance their overall experience by having a 11:08 JoeyStanford dedicated place to discuss, contribute, and gain support from local Ubuntu users. 11:08 JoeyStanford I am the current Team Leader and Neal McBurnett (who is here today) is the Deputy Team Leader. 11:08 mako if they have already, having something typed and up and prepared for pasting will make you friends :) === mako nods to nealmcb 11:08 JoeyStanford What We Do: 1) Educate the public about Ubuntu, 2) Supply Ubuntu (CDs & CD images), 3) Support Ubuntu Locally, 4) 11:08 JoeyStanford Conduct outreach programs via local schools 11:08 JoeyStanford Our membership, at last count, numbers 35 people although I must admit we 11:08 JoeyStanford have not yet been able to get all of them to register on launchpad or our mailing list. 11:09 JoeyStanford As part of our support program we have been actively participating in local LUG lists. 11:09 JoeyStanford We have IT professionals, 11:09 JoeyStanford hobbyists, teachers, and students in our ranks. 11:09 JoeyStanford In 2006 we are planning (and executing) to leverage the educational 11:09 JoeyStanford professionals to provide a level of outreach into our schools. 11:09 JoeyStanford 11:09 JoeyStanford One of our members, Paul Casey, has done a fantastic job at a local university. He has converted the entire computer 11:09 JoeyStanford lab and to a large extent, the entire computer program, over to Ubuntu. Ubuntu is on every lab machine. Almost all 11:09 JoeyStanford courses are taught using Ubuntu including graphics design, publishing, programming, and basic computer skills. 11:09 JoeyStanford 11:09 JoeyStanford We've had some interesting events since we started. Our Dapper Release party was a great success and we signed up a few 11:09 JoeyStanford new members. My laptop nearly melted due to the continued burning of ISOs. :-) 11:09 JoeyStanford 11:09 JoeyStanford Through the mailing list, irc channel, and our physical parties we've been able to provide both generalized and specific 11:09 JoeyStanford support of Ubuntu to our community. This has resulted in a suggestion for Matthew East: 11:09 JoeyStanford https://launchpad.net/products/ubuntu-website/+bug/51382 11:09 Ubugtu Malone bug 51382 in ubuntu-website "Suggestion: LoCo Teams to Free Support Page" [Untriaged,Confirmed] 11:09 elmo holy cow, longest intro EVAR 11:09 JoeyStanford We have some additional speaking engagements lined up as well as a big, more organized, team parties later this year. We 11:09 JoeyStanford were targeting the Sept/Oct time frame and may roll this into the Eft Release Party and/or the Free Software Day 11:09 JoeyStanford celebration. 11:10 mako yeah, a bit much perhaps :) 11:10 JoeyStanford All in all, we've been having a great time and wanted to share our excitement with the Council. This concludes our 11:10 JoeyStanford formal presentation. We would like to end with a formal solicitation to the council for recognizing our team as an 11:10 JoeyStanford official local team. We would very much welcome additional ideas on how to become even more successful as well as 11:10 JoeyStanford meeting any missed criteria for being an officially sanctioned Local Community Team. Thank you!!!! === JoeyStanford done! 11:10 nealmcb I'm Neal McBurnett: https://launchpad.net/people/nealmcb and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NealMcBurnett === nixternal applauds 11:10 nealmcb He said it all 11:11 mako i think you guys should be able to definitely modify the colorado flag to include an ubuntu logo 11:11 nealmcb :-) 11:11 mako or at least two thirds of one === JoeyStanford already has a design concepty for Loco t-shirts :-) 11:12 mako great 11:12 mako well, you said a lot.. i have no questions.. thanks for your work so far and for showing up 11:12 mako it's pretty inspirational 11:13 mako JoeyStanford: welcome! 11:13 mako also nealmcb 11:13 mako sharms2? 11:13 sharms2 I mistyped, I am later in agenda 11:13 mako ah, ok 11:13 nealmcb You all provide a great platform to rally around, with great community feel. 11:14 mako nixternal, chitown! 11:14 elmo yeah, what mako said 11:14 nixternal After a performance like that by JoeyStanford, there isn't much for me to add.

Started playing with Ubuntu last year, and fell in love really starting with Kubuntu Dapper Flight 3. 12:19 nixternal I have been in and out of the IRC channel with many different nicks over the past year, however since April/May I have been 'nixternal' in #kubuntu offering support as much as possible. 12:19 nixternal I am also in the NewUserNetwork which runs a classroom for the new user and their Ubuntu Linux operating system. Starting in August we will be running actual classes for everyone to check out. I will be adding myself as a mentor/instructor for a couple of programs. 12:20 nixternal I have contributed a lot to many wiki pages, as I work on the WikiTeam. My main contributions have been in the CategoryCleanup area, cleaning up pages that aren't styled correctly, or the information is confusing. I have done over 100 pages so far, and there is still more then 300 left. 12:20 nixternal DocumentationTeam work consists of helping the team review documentation, as I am not a full fledged member just yet, and I am still learning the svn system as well as docbooks. However, I am working alongside jjesse and others on creating "Switching From Windows" documentation. 12:20 nixternal Marketing Team work right now is huge, as we are redesigning ourselves. I am currently working on Wiki redesign for all Marketing pages, as well as the Magazine project. I am also working on documentation/presentations for members to use for Marketing as well as for the LoCo Teams. 12:20 nixternal Laptop team work is currently pretty slow as we are waiting for the first Knot really to begin testing again. I have contributed a Kubuntu Dapper test for Flight 7 and the LTS. I will continue providing support in the IRC channel as well. 12:20 Seveas nixternal, ah, so the NuN/classroom is going somewhere, cool! 12:20 nixternal BugSquad work will definitely keep you busy. I have done triage, minor in aspect, as I haven't created a patch just yet, but I have done the general work by responding to the poster, asking for more information if needed, and confirming if possible. 12:20 nixternal Chicago Team is keeping me pretty busy as it is a very new team. We are officially holding our first meeting July 27. I will be giving a couple presentations as well as a few of our other members. Membership is continuing to grow daily, and we are planning an event downtown Chicago soon. 12:20 jenda Rich Johnson's contribution and support in the Marketing Team was invaluable. Added his involvement in the NUN, WikiTeam, DocTeam etc., but mainly the Chicago LoCo Team - he is an extremely valuable asset to the Ubuntu community, and if every LoCo had one of these, Ubuntu Marketing would probably be on a totally different level by now. 12:20 nixternal I am becoming more and more of a forums leach. I have supported a couple of things in both the Ubuntu and Kubuntu forums. I am trying to work my way up the proverbial "Cups of Java" ladder, of course without spamming to gain points ;) 12:20 gnomefreak Seveas: so far we hope to get it moving 12:20 nixternal My future plans are to continue supporting the Ubuntu community anyway possible. I am interested in future programming and packaging, as well as documentation, testing, reviewing, marketing, bug triaging, and everything else I am available to do. 12:20 nixternal Thank you, and now the floor is open to you!!! 12:20 nixternal yes Seveas 12:21 nixternal now that my lag is at 2s ;) 12:22 nixternal there is more that you will find me doing... i believe jjesse also emailed Seveas with support 12:22 nixternal i am in to many channgels to count, and when i can help i step up if possible 12:22 bimberi I've seen nixternal helping people in #kubuntu for quite a while (>>2 months). Of other areas I'm involved with he's an active contributor to ubuntu-marketing, ubuntu-doc and it seeems he's a (the?) prime mover for the Chicago LoCoTeam. Enthusiastic, Smart, a Do-er. A real asset. 12:23 nixternal i figure that if Ubuntu is free to me, then I should help as much as possible to continue it 12:23 Seveas nixternal, dang 12:23 Seveas I will not be able to make it to the next meeting to pass on a word of recommendation for Rich but wanted to lend what support maybe. He has been quite active on many channels including #kubuntu-devel and #ubuntu-doc adding interesting things to the converstation. We are working together on creating a new document (wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuDocs/Edgy) Switching From Windows for edgy and have had l 12:23 Seveas ots of discussion. He has also been VERY VERY active on the Wiki doing a lot of cleanup and other thankless tasks. A great candidate for becoming a Ubuntu Member. I know how hard it is to become a member without support so I wanted to lend any help that I can. 12:23 Seveas ^-- jjesse sent that two weeks ago 12:23 nixternal hehe 12:23 Seveas completely forgot it this time 12:23 nixternal thx Seveas 12:23 nixternal thank god he CC'd me, otherwise i wouldn't have known 12:23 gnomefreak nixternal: is doing a great job with -marketing and -nun and i have seen him step up when hes around to help another user 12:23 nixternal also, im getting ready to help jsgotangco on a "Server Book" project he has coming up 12:24 nixternal i will be providing a review to the publisher 12:24 Seveas nixternal, /me too 12:24 elmo ok 12:24 nixternal im picking up packaging, as I read it to help out LaserJock with editing it 12:25 elmo thanks nixternal, that all seems pretty impressive 12:25 nixternal thank you 12:25 elmo +1 from me 12:25 Kamion (catching up, one sec) 12:25 nixternal hehe 12:25 Seveas who is doing lp today?

My wiki page (create to spec with the requirements listed :): https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StevenHarms, and I am applying for Ubuntu Membership. I have been using Ubuntu since it first came out (in fact my forums user ID is < 600). 12:27 sharms2 I frequently help users on #ubuntu, I have recently taken an active role in bug triage, and am looking to eventually join the MOTU. 12:27 sharms2 I also act as a Ubuntu support / advocate on the campus of the university of michigan, and provide ubuntu cd's to students (I generally distribute ~30 a release) 12:27 sharms2 I am looking to increase my roll in bug triage, because I feel it is one of the best ways to help ubuntu by filtering bugs which are not bugs, and confirming the ones that are bugs, so people directly involved may actually fix said bugs. 12:28 sharms2 I thank you for taking the time to look over my wiki page and appreciate your time 12:28 Seveas sharms, what's your forum profilepage? 12:29 sharms2 one sec 12:29 sharms2 http://www.ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=330 12:30 sharms2 On a side note, for the freenode ofth discussion, I was previously known as mindwarp here until my nickname was stolen === ..[topic/#ubuntu-meeting:Ubugtu] : Calendar: http://fridge.ubuntu.com/event | Logs: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MeetingLogs/ | 12 Jul 12:00 UTC: Edubuntu | 13 Jul 07:00 UTC: Ubuntu Development Team | 13 Jul 19:00 UTC: Marketing Team | 17 Jul 13:00 UTC: Kubuntu | 18 Jul 20:00 UTC: Technical Board | 19 Jul 20:00 UTC: Edubuntu 12:31 sharms2 Here is my mouse howto: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=192264 12:31 sharms2 for those using the usb microsoft explorer mouse with forward and back buttons (firefox) 12:33 elmo hmm, did you have anyone vouching for you? 12:33 sharms2 bddebian 12:33 sharms2 he has seen me help people in #ubuntu 12:33 sharms2 but mostly just that I bug triage right now, which doesnt have a ton of interaction over here 12:33 elmo ok 12:34 nixternal #ubuntu-bugs is where us bug sickos hang out!! 12:34 sharms2 :) 12:36 sharms2 Also I am hoping to take over the istanbul package eventaully 12:36 sharms2 been working on it but I think gstreamer needs more polish at this point since certain pipes segfault here 12:36 elmo sharms: how long have you been doing bug triage and stuff? 12:37 sharms2 Last few months I have started triaging very actively, previously due to an already reported launchpad bug I wasn't able to find how to properly triage bugs 12:38 elmo ok 12:38 Kamion ok, your page is a little light compared to some others tonight, but you do seem to have been doing a fairly respectable amount of bug work === popey [email@example.com] has joined #ubuntu-meeting === pontifex [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 12:39 elmo agreed, +1 from me 12:39 sharms2 thank you very much 12:39 elmo ok, lfittl ? 12:40 Kamion I recommend continuing to work with the #ubuntu-bugs and #ubuntu-motu crowds 12:40 Kamion who can help you develop 12:40 Kamion but +1 from me for membership for the time being 12:40 lfittl My name is Lukas Fittl, I'm a student from Vienna, Austria. 12:40 lfittl I have started using Ubuntu with 5.04 / Hoary, and with the start of the dapper release cycle I got interested in packaging. At the moment I maintain 10 packages in universe, and for one package I am also part of upstream (libloki). For Dapper I fixed around 60 unmet dependencies in universe. If I find some free time I triage bugs in Malone, and I also review old bug reports that are still open to ensure they have the cor 12:40 lfittl rect status. Recently I added a new column to the packaging candidates page, to make tracking the debian status and existing packages easier. 12:40 sharms2 I appreciate the advice thank you 12:40 lfittl More information can be found at my wiki page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LukasFittl). 12:40 Kamion excuse me, I have a crying child to attend to 12:40 lfittl k === GStubbs43 [n=GStubbs4@pool-72-73-93-252.ptldme.east.verizon.net] has left #ubuntu-meeting ["I] === chuck_ [n=chuck@CPE0006258ec6c1-CM000a73655d0e.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 12:43 Kamion right, sorry, back 12:43 elmo wow, impressive amount of packaging work 12:43 lfittl np 12:44 lfittl elmo: thanks, I also have some other packages on my todo list ;) 12:44 Kamion we seriously need to get uploads into the karma system 12:45 lfittl yep 12:45 elmo oh, good point, I'll file a bug on soyuz 12:45 LaserJock \o/ 12:45 lfittl elmo: I think this is already planned somewhere in the wiki 12:45 elmo lfittl: bugs help reinforce planning ;) 12:46 lfittl elmo: thats right :) 12:46 Kamion https://launchpad.net/products/soyuz/+spec/soyuz-karma 12:46 lfittl :) 12:46 elmo any MOTUs still around and want to do their \o/ dance for lfittl? 12:47 LaserJock lfittl has been around -motu for some time 12:47 ogra dholbach sponsored a lot for lfittl and was always happy with the package quality as he often told me 12:47 Kamion cool, that spec proposes enormous karma for archive admins, rah 12:47 Kamion *ahem* 12:47 LaserJock I haven't sponsored any of lfittl's packages so I can't say much there 12:47 ogra seems he keeps our windowmaker community happy ;) === Flik [n=Flik@d205-250-156-195.bchsia.telus.net] has joined #ubuntu-meeting 12:49 elmo +1 from me 12:49 lfittl thank you :) 12:51 Kamion right, +1 for sheer packaging effort 12:52 Kamion I've seen your name going past for some time now 12:52 lfittl also, thanks :) 12:53 lfittl should I contact mako to get his opinion, or will he automatically catch up? 12:54 alenitchev yes, what about mako's opinion? 12:54 elmo we'll send him a a mail asking him to look at the logs for you 4 when he gets a chance 12:54 lfittl k 12:54 elmo if he has any concerns, we can deal with them, otherwise, you'll be approved when he's had a chance to do that 12:55 elmo we'll also have to schedule the next meeting out of band. but mark should be back for the next one 12:55 alenitchev ok, thanks! 12:55 lfittl thanks for your time 12:55 sharms I really appreciate it guys also 12:55 Kamion ok, sorry this has been such a marathon meeting 12:56 sharms it shows dedication! 12:56 Kamion (not been any easier for us than for you guys) 12:56 elmo yeah, thanks everyone for your patience 12:56 alenitchev thanks for your time! 12:56 elmo meeting closed. adjourned. whatever. thank you and good night.
