    Re: Meeting times

    I need a concensus on when this upcoming weekend we should meet. Wednesday is the night before Thanksgiving so I don't realistically expect people to show up during the holidays. I will tune in on occasion to see if anyone is around.
    One of the items discussed during the last meeting was a Ozarks LUG.
    Bring ideas and suggestions.
    Local rollouts for 11.04 was discussed as well as repairing older machines and donating them. Any progress on those fronts would be great such as calling local recycling centers.
    I would suggest every 2 weeks starting this weekend or next?
    I need input and feedback. My email address will be listed with the email you receive. If you have not already then register for the Launchpad Missouri Ubuntu team and sign up for the mailing list.
    Write back soon, Windwalker

    Re: Meeting times

    Personally, I agree with Mike. I would love to have a meeting, but I don't expect many people to be there as there may be people travelling. Probably best to just have an informal meeting and make the log available here in the forums.

    Re: Meeting times

    Windwalker52, I've been reading all of the incoming e-mails and forum posts but haven't responded recently. I'm flexible when it comes to scheduled On Line meetings, I'll either be available or I won't, there is no better or worse time currently. I'm still in agreement with imahussey, er, Nick, about keeping good "minutes" so if you miss out you're not completely lost at the next meeting.

    Did you say that you found a working Charter in one of the other LUG's (or was it on LaunchPad?) that we could use as a template? How do you want to approach documents and things like this? Could we post it on Google Docs as a shared work, or is there a better way?

    I don't want to take away from the real importance of this thread; I think this is something that we can begin a new thread for and could be looking at individually leading up to our next meeting.

    Re: Meeting times

    I'm so glad that people are obviously making an effort to participate. I'm with Windwalker as far as being pretty flexible to the meeting times. I was just hoping we could stagger or rotate meeting times to try to get different people of different schedules involved. I doubt many people are up to a whole lot on Sunday afternoons. Wednesday works for me okay for me except every other month I have another meeting.

    Re: Meeting times

    It's great to see some excitement. Those of us who founded the group years ago had a great deal of trouble getting anyone else to get involved.

    We had several meetings in the Kansas City area when we formed. However, other than occasional pings on e-mail, I have had no interest over the past couple of years when asking to get folks together.

    As far as documents, etc., Missouri Team has a wiki page, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MissouriTeam. It has been set up specifically for document sharing and collaboration. Missouri Team also has access to PPAs for version control through its launchpad page.

    I will support you in any and every way possible.

    I still have not done my homework (research) on this but it is on the agenda for tonight when things quiet down for awhile in the household. It sounds like you have some good ideas and I am going to wait until I research the group wiki to see if one exists and what stage it is in. I'll check back later after around 11pm. Any ideas would be good and provide a starting point.

    btw what is the official opinion on meeting times. I was going to assume Wednesday at 7pm every other week or every week depending upon need and then a more formal meeting 8:30pm every other week again on Wednesday. We have a ad hoc meeting arrangement on Friday at 7pm which has a focus of the Ozarks LUG but anyone is welcome. We sort of got into the trap of trying to please everyone because every member is a precious commodity not to be wasted but i think it can be done at least for the most part using the current schedule and arrangements.
    ubuntu-missouri on Freenode is I also assume the proper channel to use for meetings.
    Let me hear form you if we need to make adjustments or I am mistaken about something.

    Re: Meeting times

    I will probably not be available at 7 pm this Wednesday, as my son has a book fair at his school. However, I will hop onto #ubuntu-missouri as soon as I get home. Otherwise, Wednesday nights are good. Please do check out the Missouri Team wiki. There is already quite a bit of work done on it, courtesy of Kent Seaton.

    Re: Meeting times

    The official IRC channel for us to use is #us-missouri-ubuntu. I believe I saw this on a post somewhere from Matthew Copple. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'll have no problem making it to most meetings. It's just that this time of year I've had a lot of volunteer work to do. I still think we should try and stagger the meeting times but I can understand why thats kind of a hassle too. Maybe sub-committees can form of people who can't make it to the main meetings and the sub-committees could appoint a liaison who can represent them in the main meetings when they can't be present.

    Speaking to Windwalker52's point about a finding and/or creating a charter - I've only been able to find the Code of Conduct here: http://www.ubuntulinux.org/community
    Then a link to Ubuntu's "Governance" is found here: http://www.ubuntulinux.org/project/a...ntu/governance
    Seems like together they form a charter...?
