Developer Membership Board meeting 2011-09-12 19:00 UTC
Chair: Stéphane Graber Present: Jono Bacon, Michael Biena (DMB), Jonathan Carter, Benjamin Drung (DMB), Micah Gersten (DMB), Scott Kitterman, Cody Somerville (DMB)
Administrative matter: Review of re-staffing poll results
Micah Gersten is the winner of the poll. Result forwarded to the TB.
Administrative matter: Review of the Ubuntu Developer Survey results
It's been discussed that one of the major problems is the lack of documentation, Jono will ask Daniel to work on improving the layout of the existing documentation and Cody will work on documenting how to endorse someone.
We'll continue discussing the report at our next meeting.
Administrative matter: Package sets
We've been discussing our current package sets documentation and how to improve it as well as the way of handling changes.
As a first step, stgraber will put online the list of all package sets and their content for all supported series.
Additional documentation will likely have to be done on the wiki to document the reason for each of them, the associated team and the reason and criteria for the package list.
The next meeting is scheduled for 2011-09-26 14:00 UTC (Chair: micahg)

September Team Meeting - This meeting was on the 11th of September 2011 and attended by 8 team members
The team was updated on release parties happening throughout the country. JaredNorris (head_victim on IRC) emailed the list about the Brisbane release party and jpickett (sagaci on IRC) emailed the mailing list about the Sydney release party.
jpickett (sagaci on IRC) updated the team on en-Au translations for Oneiric and called for anyone interested in helping out after the documentation freeze. jpickett (sagaci on IRC) also let everyone know that the en-AU Translation Jam on Saturday 3rd September went well. At least 3000 strings were translated!
Discussion continued on providing truly localized CD images to Australian Ubuntu users. A Launchpad blueprint has been created to facilitate this. It will be "real and in full flight by 12.04 LTS". A wiki page is to be set up with customisation thoughts for the local version.
The team is hoping we're approaching the final iteration of the the Ubuntu-Au Mission Statement soon.
JaredNorris (head_victim on IRC) is to set up an Ubuntu-Au Youtube account for sharing videos useful to other Ubuntu users.
Last but most certainly not least: The Australian Ubuntu LoCo Team has gained re-approval! It's been great to see people putting in the effort and as just rewards we're an official LoCo again!
