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'
