  • Planet Code of Conduct see mailing list thread titled Planet CoC - MichaelWood3

<LoudMouthMan> [TOPIC] Language guidelines. Who should be responsible for talking to users about bad language - BY Sampbar ?
<MootBot> New Topic: Language guidelines. Who should be responsible for talking to users about bad language - BY Sampbar ?
<gord> i think some people just need a poke
<LoudMouthMan> yeah but were not Facebook eh!
<DaveMorris> the moot bot shouuld poke eveeryonee in the room
<LoudMouthMan> so Topic... Language .
*** mrmonday_ is now known as mrmonday
<LoudMouthMan> The ops had discussed this about a month or so ago
<LoudMouthMan> and we have discussed it on the channel before
<willskills> well is there much need for it?
<LoudMouthMan> are there any questions/ concerns.
<DaveMorris> what defines bad language? Keywords, the contex? Poltical/reglious/other viewpoints?
<LoudMouthMan> I dont feel there is . I think if someone is being daft then the room might deal with it .
<gord> well, who is responsible?
<popey> gord: ops
<LoudMouthMan> but one op on there own might wish to avoid being singly responsible for setting an agenda
<DaveMorris> I think its dealt with fine atm, but if a problem where to arise we deal with it then
<popey> agreed
<LoudMouthMan> I think its down to the ops and we should ensure we have enough ops to get a qualified fair view.
<willskills> agreed
<LoudMouthMan> So .. uhm .. not much to be added.
<DaveMorris> do we have enough ops to cover your point LMM?
<popey> what's the freenode policy?
<LoudMouthMan> we have at least 5 I believe
<popey> ompaul?
<gord> im fine as long as confidence in the ops is there
<ompaul> freenode would like a productive channel with respect shown to all around
<popey> sounds sensible ompaul
<LoudMouthMan> I think we have an agreement based on Davemorris comment
<ompaul> perhaps the ubuntu line is easier to note
<ompaul> !ohmy | LoudMouthMan
<ubotu> LoudMouthMan: Please watch your language and keep this channel family friendly.
<ompaul> this can be done by anyone
<gord> didn't this arise because of !ohmy?
<popey> yes gord
<popey> well, abuse of it
<popey> well, people thinking it was being abused
<ompaul> abuse is a removable situation
<ompaul> swearing or use of contentious language seems reasonable grounds for use of it
<popey> i believe we agreed that swear words themselves weren't grounds for repremand per-se
<popey> unless they were directed at someone
<DaveMorris> popey: you got the stats for bad languagee in the chanel?
<popey> "this laptop is crap" is okay
<popey> "you are a dick" is not
<gord> "this laptop is fucking crap"? i wouldn't agree that casual swearing is appropriate for this channel
<popey> DaveMorris: i have not sought to count or analyse that, no
<gord> (yes im aware of the irony)
<popey> we are now about to start a list gord ?
<popey> i was giving high level examples, of swearing directed at people
<popey> not of words used
<popey> i believe the ops agreed to use their own best judgement
<popey> rather than have a list of "good" and "bad" words
<doctormo> Shouldn't you impress upon people that part of the duty of being polite is reminding others to abide by the rules?
<popey> I agree with this policy
<LoudMouthMan> and they agreed to consuly others before moving on
<DaveMorris> so can we have a vote on the current policy been fit for purpose atm
<ompaul> doctormo, +1
* ompaul backs off back into his corner
<gord> but its the difference between peoples best judgement that leads to regular people using !ohmy and such
<popey> gord: which is why they get repremanded for abuse
<ompaul> popey, this is why in #ubuntu it got to the point where crap is not allowed
<LoudMouthMan> I dont feel we need a vote.
<popey> LoudMouthMan: +1
<DaveMorris> next topic then?
<gord> all i want is a bit more confidence in the ops dealing with this kinda stuff :)
<LoudMouthMan> [AGREED] The situation is currently workable and in general is approved.
<MootBot> AGREED received: The situation is currently workable and in general is approved.
<LoudMouthMan> [TOPIC] Planet Code of Conduct
<MootBot> New Topic: Planet Code of Conduct
<LoudMouthMan> This got talked about on the Mailing list . the genral feeling on the mailing list was people were happy as a general
<LoudMouthMan> Micheal pulled the thought felt it was political
<popey> i added it back in
<LoudMouthMan> Popey has kept it on ...
<popey> I bleieve that whilst the content of michaels wiki page was contentious - we should still have a policy
<LoudMouthMan> do you want to draft it first then ?
<popey> i don't agree with the content michael put up, but agree with the process, although I think it was misguided to tag a wiki page as "please dont edit"
<popey> yup, will do LoudMouthMan
<LoudMouthMan> okay so lets move it todo ...
<gord> id agree with popey on that
<DaveMorris> I agree in that the planet should be covered by the ubuntu-uk CoC since it carries thee ubuntu name
<Gary> erm, PRESENT
<popey> DaveMorris: the CoC doesn't apply
<popey> these are peoples blogs, and we have no guarantee that those people have signed the CoC and thus are not bound by it
<DaveMorris> I know it dosen't
<popey> unles you are suggestion that we only accept blog posts on the planet from people who have signed the CoC
<DaveMorris> however you shouldn't use you blog to slag of other members?
<gord> don't you have to sign the CoC to be an ubuntu-uk member?
<popey> DaveMorris: thats a specific example
<popey> gord: no
<LoudMouthMan> by that thinking you shouldnt access the mail list unless you sign the coc. but there is an assumption that you do follow the Coc otherwise why did I get the Shot kocking
<popey> i would rather not spend the next hour talking about specific blog examples
<LoudMouthMan> god please no ... lets not.
<popey> i would rather draft a policy and discuss it on the list and in here, and invite edits to the wiki
<LoudMouthMan> assuming god is not a list word <grin>
<LoudMouthMan> agreed
<gord> soo todo then?
<popey> i will do that
<popey> Fastest meeting EVA!
<gord> zoooom
<LoudMouthMan> [AGREED] popey to draft a policy and discuss it on the list and in here and invite edits.
<MootBot> AGREED received: popey to draft a policy and discuss it on the list and in here and invite edits.
<Gary> surely a simple, be nice to each other, and try to follow the meaning of the CoC should suffice?
<LoudMouthMan> [TOPIC] Report on what is happening with the ubuntu-uk forum and weather a public (non testing) forum should exist without their being mailing list integration
<MootBot> New Topic: Report on what is happening with the ubuntu-uk forum and weather a public (non testing) forum should exist without their being mailing list integration
<LoudMouthMan> okay .. if Pricechild is listening we could move further ... BUT
<LoudMouthMan> heres the details.
<DaveMorris> bit of a moot point now ;)
<LoudMouthMan> we want integration with the forum and mail list
<LoudMouthMan> we want to test/evaluate this
<LoudMouthMan> we now have a ubuntu-uk forum and it wasnt advertised for the above two reasons .
<gord> but surely testing/evaluating need not be a public thing? right now it seems there is two different communites being developed
<LoudMouthMan> its in place because it is hoped this might SPUR a few individuals with ability/influence to move forward
<DaveMorris> how much work is invloved in integrating the 2?
<LoudMouthMan> gord , this isnt a conspiracy its just getting things moving ....
<LoudMouthMan> im trying to get it moving .. and it had been stagnant . i felt a more direct. approach was worth it.
<gord> im not claiming it is, i just feel like its not needed and goes against why we didn't want one setup without mailing list integration
<Gary> LoudMouthMan, is the forum the one here http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=274
<gord> (not needed without mailing list, not a forum in general)
<LoudMouthMan> its becoming chicken and egg discussion though
<LoudMouthMan> we werent seeing it because it wasnt there.
<LoudMouthMan> it wasnt there becuse we werent seein it.
<DaveMorris> gord: are we not alienating peoplee who don't wanna use mailing lists by forcing them to use one if they want to join in?
<LoudMouthMan> now I can make it an issue.
<popey> LoudMouthMan: only because people didn't get off their ass and make it so
<gord> im fine with a forum in general DaveMorris, i just don't like the idea of fragmentating a community into forum/mailinglist
<doctormo> DaveMorris: you need an effective medium of communication that has easy logging and isn't instant. you can either have forums or mailing lists; forums don't have prompting like email does
<gord> and as far as i am aware the only development so far on mailing list integration is that its on someones 'todo' list
<popey> doctormo: do you know the history of this issue?
<PriceChild> LoudMouthMan, I'm here....
<LoudMouthMan> oops
<PriceChild> *reads scrollback*
<LoudMouthMan> there we go
<LoudMouthMan> missed some thing there
<LoudMouthMan> anyway ... hello pricechild
<LoudMouthMan> gord , was that a satisfactory response ?
<LoudMouthMan> ironically its now had better advertising than I would have expected. so .. way to go UK <grin>
<doctormo> popey: I know of the issues we've had
<popey> doctormo: "we" == ubuntu-uk?
<gord> it fills the requirement of a report i guess, i still feel that its against what we decided as a community though
<doctormo> popey: sorry, I know of the issue from ubuntu-us-ma, it's not unique
<LoudMouthMan> i disagree we never said never . we said .. if
<DaveMorris> how much work is invloved in integrating the 2?
<gord> yes and so far the answer to if there is mailing list integration we have "no there is no mailing list intgration"
<gord> im not saying no forum ever, just when its possible to do the two
<LoudMouthMan> okay .. im feeling like this is going circular in explanation . again !
<popey> DaveMorris: if using ubuntuforums.org then allegdly "not much" but it's not us that does it, it's some other "god" within ubuntuforums
<gord> should we just vote on weather the forums should exist before there is mailing list integration then?
<popey> bit late for that isn't it?
<LoudMouthMan> I think not. on the basis it breaks the first descision we had .
<gord> i feel the forums being made breaks the first decision we had
<LoudMouthMan> and it makes us come off here ( in a logged channel ) as being a bit elitiest and exlcusionary
* LoudMouthMan edits his reply.
<DaveMorris> so we need to chase the 'ubuntuforum gods' to get them intergrated
<PriceChild> I have been poking ubuntu-geek for the ML integration. I will poke again when he comes online this evening.
<DaveMorris> so can we leave PriceChild to keep the preasuree on ubuntu-geeek and move to the next topic?
<LoudMouthMan> it would help if people made a positive and moving forward contribution in a open and public channel to encourage the Forums/Maillist guys to help with integration
<PriceChild> I think everyone should take note, that the subforum hasn't suddenly created its own community,.
<PriceChild> and it isn't going to.
<gord> its starting too though, thats whats worrying
<PriceChild> gord, no
<PriceChild> The few posts there are introducing themselves.. going "wow there is a uk loco team" and wanting to get involved
<popey> from tiny acorns
<PriceChild> not suddenly trying to start something from scratch
<doctormo> from such things dafodils are created
<PriceChild> there's a post or two there about people getting onto irc to come here after seeing that IIRC
<popey> it is _however_ another comms channel that we _have_ to keep an eye on if we want to be involved in the Ubuntu-UK loco team!
<popey> granted it's a bit of a dustbowl in there at the moment, but it will grow and flourish, I don't doubt that
<PriceChild> That you have to keep an eye on?
<PriceChild> If you want to be involved? :O
<PriceChild> You guys _are_ the ubuntu-uk loco team.
<LoudMouthMan> well i will keep an eye on it .
<LoudMouthMan> we have diferent people on different channels anyway
<popey> PriceChild: i was going along the lines of fragmentation
<LoudMouthMan> jrdddel and I manage the mail list , popey and x3n the server, 5 of us on irc.
<PriceChild> sabdfl is extremely keen in Ubuntu to "lower the barrier to entry", and this was repeated several times at Sevilla.
<PriceChild> he was referring to development
<PriceChild> However I think this should be taken into account with this issue.
<popey> right, there's no point having this conversation because some of us that don't like forums have voiced this opinion in the past
<popey> and now that we have one, there's nothing we can do but support it
<gord> can we at least just agree that the mailing list integration is of a very high priority and that the forums can't just be left without it? i don't want to end up a year later with a large forum community and a large mailing list community with some slight mixing on irc
<popey> but it's _VERY_ galling for those of us that _requested_ integration
<LoudMouthMan> gord that I do agree on .. integration is important.
<LoudMouthMan> then again thats exactly what we have .
<LoudMouthMan> 50 on irc.
<LoudMouthMan> about 320 on maillist
<leftcase> Hi folks, balls - sorry I forgot there was a meeting :-|
<LoudMouthMan> who know how many stalkers and lurkers
<doctormo> wait, shouldn't there be a difference between the forum and the mailing list anyway? I mean the forum is for more passive members, people who use ubuntu and happen to live in the uk; where as the mailing list seems to be more about setting and organising things.
<DaveMorris> I rearly use the mailing list
<LoudMouthMan> i use all platforms. even the facebook one
<popey> doctormo: seriously, we have had this discussed _many_ times
<doctormo> popey: I'll shut up then
<LoudMouthMan> anything further guys .. or shall we move on tot the next topic ..
<popey> sorry doctormo it's just that we are in danger of talking about the same old stuff again and again
<LoudMouthMan> since we have a non UK guest with us today
<gord> we came to a conclusion on the forum/mailing list issue. im just not happy about the only indication of progress being made regarding integration is that its on someones todo list. i myself have a todo list and am lucky if i get round to most of it ;)
<popey> it was a compromise between those of us that don't like forums and those that do
<popey> and that compromise has effectively been thrown out the window
<LoudMouthMan> Well we have a moving forward action so to do lists be damned im onit.
<gord> thats my thoughts popey
<LoudMouthMan> ironically we can ask in here and in the mail list .. we just cant ask anyone on the forums for how they feel about it though.
<popey> of course you can
<popey> there are oodles of forums
<LoudMouthMan> okay I will ask in the forums if they want a forum/ forum.mail intergration / cant be botherd.
<popey> but asking forum members if they'd like a forum seems like a loaded question to me
<popey> great! so we agree something, and you go looking for a different answer elsewhere, nice one
<leftcase> LoudMouthMan, you could run a sticky poll in the forum for x amount of time on the question of intergrations...
<LoudMouthMan> no .. im asmnering your ... sure you can .. youu suggested it .. dont flag me with that comment
<LoudMouthMan> good point leftcase
<LoudMouthMan> what would it mean to those who dont like forums is it turned out we had a large uk community who were only inerested in fourms ?
<popey> i didn't suggest it, i merely pointed out that your assertion that you can't ask on the forum is incorrect
<LoudMouthMan> what would it mean to sabdfl if we kep the barrier low.
<popey> so we _are_ going back over the discussion again then?
<LoudMouthMan> no im not.. i want to move on . and keep things moving .
<popey> i give up
<popey> i really feel beaten down by this
<popey> railroaded
<LoudMouthMan> as DO I
<popey> not a pleasant feeling
<LoudMouthMan> so shall we have a urinating contest about who feels beating down ... ?
<LoudMouthMan> or ...
<LoudMouthMan> shall was consider the community and the opportunity and the positive things we can do
<popey> you can do what you like, it appears
<popey> I'll do what I feel best
<gord> i see a community decision being taken that was overruled for some reason and it seems like theres nothing any of us can do about it
<popey> +1
<PriceChild> will you be happy once we get the integration going?
<DaveMorris> I thought the descion to have intergation had already been taken, so wew just need to get that sorted out
<DaveMorris> we're going over the same topics again and again
<LoudMouthMan> we have 47 people in here now , we have more then 100 more on the mailist whren the descision was made. bearing in mind what you feel is not what is the case how the heck should i response
<leftcase> Perhaps its a reflection upon my lack of understanding of the issues, but personally I don't see how it matters particularly. Surely those who wish to use the forums will, and those who wish to use the mailing list will.
<LoudMouthMan> this is just the usual stuff that goes no where does nothing and people are watching.
<DaveMorris> leftcase: +1
<popey> fine, carry on LoudMouthMan
<popey> I'll say no more about it
<Gary> leftcase: +1
<LoudMouthMan> leftcase +1 also .
<LoudMouthMan> moving on .
<LoudMouthMan> [TOPIC] Badges [WWW] Aluminum Badges DoctorMo would like to talk with thr UKTeam about getting involved
<MootBot> New Topic: Badges [WWW] Aluminum Badges DoctorMo would like to talk with thr UKTeam about getting involved
<doctormo> Hi
<Gary> i'll buy some :p
<DaveMorris> doctormo: can you explain what yoou mean by those?
<LoudMouthMan> doctormo, over to you
<popey> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MassachusettsTeam/Projects/AluminiumCaseBadges
<leftcase> Ooooh nice :-D
<doctormo> The Ubuntu-US-MA team has a project running were we are getting a batch of 29mm x 19mm ubuntu case badges; the company we have to make them have quoted some very good prices if we can buy in bulk; so we are getting in touch with each LoCo team to offer them
<popey> doctormo: do you have the artwork in downloadable form?
<doctormo> So far we have broken 2 price bands and now are priced at $0.34/£0.17 each
<doctormo> popey: what form would you like them?
<popey> svg?
<DaveMorris> who is gonna take the finacal risk on them though?
<doctormo> popey: not a problem, developed in inkscape
<LoudMouthMan> I would.
<popey> doctormo: can you upload them to that page? :)
<DaveMorris> I'm happy with an indidual(s) buying them and selling them on at profit for taking thee risk
<DaveMorris> as the loco team dosen't have any funds to do it it's self
<LoudMouthMan> well we have .40pence
<doctormo> DaveMorris: There are two directions this project could go, 1 is that System76 who has requested higher pricing quotes may step in and buy 10,000 and may be willing to deal; otherwise I take responsibility to for dealing with the invoice
<doctormo> DaveMorris: Your concern seems centered on the idea that the LoCo groups can not be trusted
<doctormo> so far the leaders of each group have taken personal responsibility for handeling the money
<Gary> doctormo, I think it is more about "being safe" etc, not about outright mistrust
<doctormo> and they do so at the request of the members
<LoudMouthMan> well i forked out the 300 for the polos and i got the money back so I dont mind risk
<Gary> and these things always sell, in the end, so it's a good risk, imho
<doctormo> And at these price bands it's not that much money; esp as your buying in pounds
<LoudMouthMan> thats what I realised
<leftcase> So, bottom line unit cost is 17p a badge ?
<Gary> or £17 for 100 :p
<leftcase> I'm in :-)
<doctormo> The _current_ band we have is 17p (factor in the £8 setup fee and maybe some paypal charges :-()
<doctormo> if we get 10,000 ordered or system76 steps in they'll be 11p each
<leftcase> doctormo, so lets say 30p a badge - that sound reasonable as a guesstimate ?
<Gary> so if say, ubuntu-uk bought 100, how much would the cost be each?
<popey> leftcase: that depends on how much LoudMouthMan sells them for doesn't it?
<popey> a healthy profit isn't unreasonable
<DaveMorris> if we buy as a loco would we then be required to have more legal things
<Gary> popey, I was more thinking pre profit, so we could then add 10-20% for profit for nik
<doctormo> £25 + postage/paypal
<popey> no we dont DaveMorris, not if an individual does it
<DaveMorris> also what would the profit be used for within the loco
<doctormo> Arn't LoCos non for profits anyway
<LoudMouthMan> actually i would sit back first and wonder about volumes for sale here.
<popey> DaveMorris: the loco has no constitution, bank account etc, it would be easier for an individual
<LoudMouthMan> I can count about 100 badges we could shift off the bat. but up to 500 I dont know and as for 1000 not at all.
<DaveMorris> well I'm fine with indviduals doing it, the loco doing it would be a problem imo concering the hassle etc
<Gary> LoudMouthMan, you'd always be able to sell these, but they might take a while
<leftcase> I'll have £20 worth off the bat....
<LoudMouthMan> yeah but im not looking to maintain stock and taking a while means the market can change
<Gary> i'd buy 100 myself for starters (well £20 like leftcase )
<doctormo> the plan in the US is that we would use them as gifts when doing installfests, so people would have pride in their converted ubuntu machines
<LoudMouthMan> id set up a wiki and just collect order interests
<LoudMouthMan> that would let us know who is and isnt interested
<leftcase> LoudMouthMan, good idea
<Gary> doctormo, whats your timesc ale on this
<doctormo> If a person buys them, then the loco will have to buy them from him if you do that sort of event
<doctormo> Gary: I'm waiting on system76 to get back to me after the weekend, then waiting on two states that having meetings Friday/Thursday. then I can order perhaps Monday after
<popey> doctormo: we really have no concept of the loco buying them, it would be up to an individual like LoudMouthMan to step up
<doctormo> popey: In our teams it's a case of one person buying them and donating them to the group
<leftcase> I think that these are eminentlly saleable - I imagine if you opened up a 'shop' online and advertised to the forums etc you'd shift quite a few
<Gary> and or leftcase and I buying a few ourselfs
<doctormo> You should try and combine your orders to reduce cost, both shipping, money transfare and setup.
<Gary> yes
<PriceChild> leftcase, jenda gets great responses off of forums with posters, shirts and stickers. sells to locos also
<Gary> so LoudMouthMan please add £20 worth inc shipping and delivery to your order from me please :-)
<doctormo> You do have some time to get back to me on it, you could set up a rom on the project wiki (linked above) and invite people to increase the amount and document who it's for
<leftcase> Gary, +1
<LoudMouthMan> hehe okay I will open a wiki and sort this out with doctormo
<doctormo> row*
<doctormo> LoudMouthMan: shounds good
<Gary> i'd like to only paypal/bank transfer a whole £20 to you though nik
<doctormo> nik?
<LoudMouthMan> okay just as long as people can spell their name . i dont need another webspot incident.
<doctormo> the good news is that I still have a uk bank account with hsbc :-)
<LoudMouthMan> great send me the details so I can empty it ...
<LoudMouthMan> no hang on ....
<LoudMouthMan> heheh
<Gary> doctormo, that might be a great thing, we can transfer in easy
<doctormo> lol
<LoudMouthMan> hahah excellent leftcase
<tck> http://ubuntubackstage.org/ just gone live :)
<MootBot> LINK received: http://ubuntubackstage.org/ just gone live :)

<LoudMouthMan> so AOB ?
<leftcase> turrah doctormo
<doctormo> DaveMorris: not from me, they would want to deal direct
<Gary> actually.... DaveMorris thats not a crazy thought there....
<Gary> we could beg them for freebies :-)
<DaveMorris> at least make them aware they can buy them
<leftcase> Although I reckon Dell'd be aware that they can get 'em tbh
<Gary> DaveMorris, they would, if they were bovvered, deal direct with a manufacturer
<LoudMouthMan> meanwhile . ill wrap this meeting.
