11:00   JoeyStanford    ================= > Meeting Start:  LoCo Team Meeting     https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeamMeeting  <================================
11:01   JoeyStanford    I guess I'll start it off :-)
11:01   JoeyStanford    Welcome everyone for the LoCo Team meeting.  The Short agenda is located at  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeamMeeting
=== nixternal notes the agenda has been answered except for item #2
11:02   elkbuntu        first item on the agenda was from yann: The dns are still handled by smurf's private server. Is there any room for improvement there?
11:02   JoeyStanford    nixternal, elkbuntu, and myself set this meeting up so all blame goes to us. We thank those of you who are here.  We understand that the time may not be the best for everyone.
11:02   JoeyStanford    We plan on having the next meeting at a better time. We'll talk about that towards then end of this meeting.
11:02   nixternal       when it comes to that stuff, I have always worked with newz2000. Now I don't know if that is because I am within driving distance of him, or if he does that for everybody
11:03   elkbuntu        well, smurf has replied: DNS is now handled by the ubuntu-eu master server. Dynamic updates are possible; ask me for your domain's secret code.
11:03   nixternal       that stuff being "DNS, websites, and what not"
11:03   smurf   some locos already have. No complaints yet. ;-)
11:04   smurf   I've written a small Perl tool that makes the DNS updates a little more palatable than the under-documented "nsupdate" tool. ...
11:04   nixternal       ahh, good ol' nsupdate
11:04   JoeyStanford    Is Yann here by chance? I don't see him on the user list.
11:05   elkbuntu        is there anything regarding dns and/or websites that anyone wants to bring up now?
11:05   smurf   JoeyStanford: I've pinged him on #u-locoteams
11:06   JoeyStanford    smurf, thanks.
11:06   JoeyStanford    elkbuntu, yes I'd like to raise a related item
11:06   JoeyStanford    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCreatingWebsite
11:06   JoeyStanford    needs to be written
11:06   FunnyLookinHat  I would like to discuss that as well.
11:07   elkbuntu        who would volunteer to assist smurf in the writing of that wikipage?
11:07   elkbuntu        smurf, i'd like you to contribute to it, so the 'howto' steps are actually accurate ;)
11:07   boredandblogging        i could help, jsvh and I are working on starting up the Georgia LoCo
11:08   FunnyLookinHat  Should we first establish the guidelines that will be on that page so that we know what it will actually entail?  Stuff other than simply making the wiki page, etc?
11:08   elkbuntu        FunnyLookinHat, sure. suggestions?
11:08   smurf   elkbuntu: umm, see LoCoHosting ?
11:08   JoeyStanford    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoHosting
11:09   elkbuntu        smurf, that contains everything?
11:09   smurf   anyway I've never set up a community webpage, so I'd like to defer that to people who actually speak from experience.
11:10   nixternal       community webpage? Like what we are doing with Drupal and such?
11:10   FunnyLookinHat  elkbuntu, well, there is a strong push from a few members of the Colorado team right now to move completely away from the wiki...  I had understood that a certain standard was to use the wiki as a main basis for all loco information
11:10   smurf   elkbuntu: LoCoHosting has the technical details on who to talk to if you want hosting. The point of LoCoCreatingWebsite should be content and structure of what you need to set up after you have hosting.
11:10   JoeyStanford    It appears to me that the hosting page has enough information on how to get a hosted page. So then, might I suggest the Creating Website page be for ideas on how to represent your LoCo?
=== smurf notes that empty webpages are no fun
11:11   alefteris       I think the wiki pagw should contain link to resourses about setting up moin and getting themes for moin, forums and drupal..
11:11   nixternal       I agree with alefteris on that
11:11   nixternal       I think Drupal is covered, as well as setting up a Planet
11:11   nixternal       for Wiki, I think everything should remain on w.u.c/teamname/subdirs
11:12   nixternal       it is already there, so one less step for maintenance really
11:12   elkbuntu        right. so the CreatingWebsite page should be a portal to all the various aspects, such as those nixternal covered, as well as the hosting page smurf pointed out
11:12   JoeyStanford    +1
11:12   alefteris       nixternal, where is drupal covered?
11:12   smurf   +1
11:13   elkbuntu        any other votes?
11:13   nixternal       I thought it was somewhere on there alefteris, I might actually be wrong as I don't see anything on it
11:13   alefteris       +1
11:13   JoeyStanford    alefteris, there are a few drupal wiki entries but nothing that ties it together
11:13   nixternal       +1 if I can vote
11:13   Vorian  +1
11:13   FunnyLookinHat  +1
11:14   pochu   About that of Drupal... I think Ubuntu is changing to Joomla, so we also should put info of Joomla, and any theme...
11:14   pochu   oh, and +1 :)
11:14   nixternal       alefteris: I may have been thinking about the mailing-list, there are plenty of Drupal communications on there about the themes and what not
11:14   alefteris       talk to newz2000 a dew days ago, and told me that he is using druapal 4.7
11:14   elkbuntu        ok, who volunteers to track down all the information, document the lack of specific howtos, and add them to the LoCoCreatingWebsites wiki?
=== nixternal would love to, but he has to deal with string freezes less than a month away on 3 projects
11:16   Mirv    hmm, should the LoCoHosting's "Hosted Teams" be updated by someone who has an official list of all the Canonical hosted sites?
11:16   nixternal       I am looking at that as well Mirv, since when is Ubuntu-art a LoCo team?
11:16   elkbuntu        Mirv, yes, very likely.
11:16   elkbuntu        nixternal, or sfd
11:16   smurf   nixternal: it's not, but it's still hosted there, so...
11:16   Mirv    ubuntu-fi and ubuntu-it are eg. missing
11:16   nixternal       smurf: gotcha
11:17   smurf   Mirv: so add them ;-)
11:17   Mirv    smurf: I don't know where -it moved and if we (-fi) have a "VPS" or a "server" :)
=== JoeyStanford has another related topic ones volunteers have signed up for the hosting page.
11:18   elkbuntu        yes, so lets deal with: <elkbuntu> ok, who volunteers to track down all the information, document the lack of specific howtos, and add them to the LoCoCreatingWebsites wiki?
11:19   nixternal       elkbuntu: if we can't get the love here, maybe we could put it to the mailing list since a few people couldn't make it?
11:19   elkbuntu        nixternal, yes, but it'd be nice for a 'coordinator'
