    The Fridge: Alternate Meeting Channel

    Jose Antonio Rey informs us that due to an increase in IRC meetings an alternate channel called #ubuntu-meeting-2 has been opened, and that the Technical Board were the first to use the new channel.

    The Fridge: Renewed call for 12:00 UTC Membership Board Nominees

    Elizabeth K. Joseph reminds us that at the end of April there was a call for nominations to the Membership Board. She says that, although some nominations have been received, they have all been for the 22:00 UTC board. Elizabeth recaps on the requirements for the position and says that without sufficient people to run the 12:00 UTC session it is possible that there may have to be a modified membership application process for the APAC region.
