List of "YESs"

Ubuntu Yes, UBT is an Open Team - Anyone can join UBT any time and can find the way to contribute to the community. There is no need to drop a mail. Just get into the IRC and get new friends and colleagues Wink ;)

Ubuntu Yes, You can give ideas from the first day you enter into the team. There is no condition that you should be a known person to everyone/ contributed already. (Hope we all are beginners in some fact Wink ;) )

Ubuntu Yes, You can support/speak against any Idea ( If you have a valid point, it will be processed )

Ubuntu Yes, We are looking for the support from the whole Ubuntu community to help us work on the Focus groups, by providing some of their time in mentoring people and guiding them to contribute in the future.

Ubuntu Yes, You can help us in this restructuring process and suggest what you want to change/apply in UBT.


Ubuntu Have to frame a core team, who can help in restructuring.

Ubuntu Get people to work in the UBT wiki pages to make sure that people are aware of the restructuring and the team pages are under modification

Currently we have Myself, Unit193, Ap0gEE, Silver/NRWlion and Daniel on Board. We welcome people who can help with wiki.

Ubuntu Appoint a person to update the Wiki pages of UBT regarding the meetings and the activities going on in UBT Silver/NRWlion

Ubuntu Place a POC(or maybe 2) for UBT and place an Idea to circulate the POC of the Team once in 6 months or once an year. We can use the poll Wink ;)

Ubuntu Nominate the Leads of the BT FGs, who will be acting as the bridge between UBT and that particular Ubuntu FG.

Ubuntu Help the Leads in framing the structure,mentoring process and the procedure to join the FG Silver/NRWlion

Okay, This page will be updated if any new ideas/proposal is being suggested.

Plans after the first meeting

We got a wonderful and impressive speech by Charles, who chaired the meeting. the meeting logs can be found here.

According to the meeting,

Ubuntu MrChrisDruif will take primary role of posting meeting minutes Ubuntu Unit193 will update the details about the next meeting in the wiki as well as the channels Ubuntu All the ideas written above are discussed and will be implemented

Apart from that, we have major works to do. that is 'Identifying the FGs and the POCs between BT FG and the community FG'

Note: Volunteers are welcome. This is just a list and we can alter it any time Wink ;)

First, as talked in the meeting, AndrewMC was interested in Bug Squad. So I prefer him taking the ownership of being the bridge between BT FG and the community FG

Second, as talked in the meeting, duanedesign is interested in MOTU. Also, we have coolbhavi and PabloRubianes. So, we can start that new FG and nominate duanedesign as the bridge and coolbhavi to help him in in that.

PabloRubianes will work on bringing the heads of LoCo together for this purpose and speed it up.

Third, I am prefering head_victim for bridging the Docs team(contact Jared regarding this). If he is busy, myself(Mohi) and Unit193 will take care of it.

Fourth, BT dev team is not shining well. Have to talk to Bodhi and Charles regarding that. If any saviour wants to take the ownership, it will be appreciated. Smile :) (Had a chat with coolbhavi, who stepped forward to help in both MOTU and dev. Have to ping him again Wink ;) )

Fifth, for support. We have many in this area, which is our primary goal to achieve. So, no problem for now. We can discuss about it if the heat reduces.

Sixth, getting members to take sessions in Ubuntu-classroom - POC will be pliea2
