View Full Version : Canadian Team LoCo ReApproval for 2012

November 24th, 2012, 02:13 AM
Hi everyone! It looks like we need to work on our Canadian Team LoCo (Local Community) ReApproval - today some of us got an e-mail telling us that our membership in the Approved LoCo Teams has expired.

Darcy is contacting the LoCo Council to see what's up.

In the meantime, to help with the ReApproval I've copied the Wiki Page from the 2010 ReApproval so that all of us can update, verify and add to the list of activities we've been engaged in: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam/ReApprovalApplication2012

Put in some pictures and a sentence or two describing your Ubuntu Hours, Release Parties, Global Jams or just some friends geeking out over Ubuntu!

Hello Bob Jonkman,

The membership of Ubuntu Canada (ubuntu-ca) in the Approved LoCo Teams
(locoteams-approved) team has expired.

Hi all! Since last November or so our Canadian Team LoCo is no longer approved, and we've been working on preparing a page to submit for our ReApproval Application:


It's still a work-in-progress needing some polishing up. At the last IRC meeting(1) I offered to set up a Page Polishing Party for Saturday, 9 March. That this weekend! Yikes!

If we can get that page cleaned up (and maybe add some bling to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam as well) then we might be able to get on the LoCo Council agenda(2) for ReApproval at their meeting on 19 March 2013. If we're ReApproved before the Raring Ringtail release on 25 April then we should qualify to receive a box of official Ubuntu CDs and DVDs.

The Page Polishing Party is intended to be an online collaboration, so if you have any additional stuff to add (or just feel like deleting the editorial notes littering the page) then please join me in the Ubuntu-CA IRC channel: irc://irc.freenode.net/#ubuntu-ca for IRC clients, or http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-ca for Web browsers. I'll probably park myself at 3:00pm EST in the Matter of Taste coffeeshop in Kitchener (map: http://osm.org/go/ZXnwT1FJW--?m ) -- come join me!

If you can, register for the online event at http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/2275/detail/

Page Polishing Party!

BTW, If anyone has suggestions for collaborative editing software please let me know!

Hello Everybodeee! Thursday brings another Ubuntu Canada IRC meeting(1)at 7:00pm EDT (4:00pm PDT; 8:30 NDT) in irc://irc.ubuntu.com/#ubuntu-ca It would be great if you can register for the LoCo Event.

The big thing on the agenda(2) is the Ubuntu-ca ReApproval2012 Request(3) to the LoCo Council. The LoCo Council did not have a meeting in March; their next meeting is on 16 April at 4:00pm EDT. We need to enter our ReApproval request on their agenda(4) 24 hours before the meeting, and someone from Ubuntu-ca needs to attend that meeting. Unfortunately, I'm not available on 16 April (about the only time that week that I'm not; blame Murphy). Can anyone else log into the Ubuntu meeting channel to represent Ubuntu-ca? irc://irc.ubuntu.com/#ubuntu-meeting

I'll be at the Almadina Restaurant in Waterloo for the IRC meeting, which becomes the Waterloo Ubuntu Hour(5) right afterwards. It would be great if you can register for that LoCo Event too. Hope to see you there!-

I could probably make 16 April at 16:00, but I usually need a reminder for this kind of activity. It won't stop me from thinking that IRC is just *so* 1995.

Hi GordInToronto: It would be great if you (and anyone else!) could dust off your DeLorean and put in a few good words for the Canadian Team.

I've put the Ubuntu-ca ReApproval at LoCo Council meeting (http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/2354-ubuntu-ca-reapproval-at-loco-council-meeting/) on our event calendar, and you can use the iCal Feed (http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/2354/detail/ical/) link to add it to your own calendar.

But I'll send out another reminder next Monday too.

Hi Bob,
I have to send regrets. I will be taking my wife to see her doctor at that time. Sorry.

Hi all: Just a quick reminder that the LoCo Council meeting takes place in about an hour. If you've got the time, please pop into the #ubuntu-meeting channel on irc.ubuntu.com to support the Ubuntu-ca ReApproval. There's a browser interface at http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-meeting if you haven't got an IRC client handy. --Bob.

Hooray! We've been ReApproved! You can follow the discussion by the LoCo Council on the LaunchPad Bug Report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1075848) --Bob.
