Welcome to our Swiss Team Brainstorming site!
Feel free to post your ideas here.
Keep in mind that those ideas may not be up to date. If you want to get something started please get in contact with the community through the mailing list.
Release Party Ideas
<idea by dsto>: what is the opinion of the team about organizing two different release parties? One for community and end-user (on Saturday, as suggested at the Denk:Mal) the other for business and end-user (can't be on Saturday, idea: at Education site or other public place). I did some investigations: Sponsoring is offered - in case we are able to provide presentations/success stories by guest speakers who have deployed Ubuntu at their companies. </idea>
Modifying Contact list
As the SwissTeam is growing steadily and more volunteers add themselves to the contact list, it becomes quite long and unhandy. Various propositions for modification are:
Splitting it into regional lists, by postal code. -- ErwinHerrsche
Splitting it into cantons. --StephaneGraber
If the map is adopted, we could replace the standard icons on the map with Ubuntu logo. Those logos could even be repainted according to a color code (ex: green for beginner, orange for advanced and red for experts). This would allow the visitor to easily see where and what kind of help is available. The French community has something similar (http://www.ubuntu-fr.org/carte/). -- Peppy2
Actually it's not the "French community" but the French-speaking community. People speaking French in Switzerland can register on that map. Maybe we don't need a "Swiss" map. People just have to get used to the global village.--TormodVolden
Just have the whole list on a separate page. Splitting it up will rapidly make it inconsistent, hard to search, and maybe you want to find a close match across the canton or postal code border. Automatic generation of a map, based on the postal code would be übercool. --TormodVolden
moving the list to one subpage is a good idea -- ErwinHerrsche
Support Point Map
Myriam got in touch with MarkVanDenBorre during FOSDEM in Brussels and he sent the links to the code. Check the specification set up by the BelgianTeam here: BelgianTeam/SupportPointsSpec. They posted a support point volunteers manual here: BelgianTeam/SupportPoints.
