View Full Version : Ubuntu-California Meeting / Leadership

August 5th, 2007, 11:04 AM
As some of you may already know, Carl (rennen01) has resigned his post as leader of the California LoCo team and I have taken up the reigns.

I am looking forward to working with and getting to know all of you in the future as we work to get our LoCo team back into gear.

One of the first things we need to do is hold a meeting so to swap some ideas and get everyone more or less on the same page. Tentatively, we’ll be holding our first meeting next Sunday (8/12) sometime in the evening (we’re thinking like 6 or 7pm) in our IRC channel, #ubuntu-california. I’d like to see if most people can make this time before we set it in stone, so please respond within the next few days in that regard. Unfortunately, as with most groups of this size, we won’t be able to accommodate everyone’s schedule, but I’d like to have as many people there as possible. For those who aren’t there, logs will be available.

Speaking of the IRC channel, as a LoCo team we have a number of resources available to us for communication, and I encourage you all to utilize as many as you’re comfortable with.

IRC: #ubuntu-california on irc.freenode.org (which is what irc.ubuntu.com is aliased to, and is the default server in Xchat at least) – used for general communication, as well as the place where meetings are held
Web forum: http://california.ubuntuforums.org – general communication
Mailing List: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-us-ca – general communication
Web page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam – Used as a webpage (obviously), including meeting agendas, meeting logs, and any other things where being a wiki is helpful.
Launchpad: https://launchpad.net/~california.team – Used primarily as a team roster

If you have any questions or suggestions or whatnot, feel free to reply here, stop by IRC and chat, send smoke signals, whatever. And as a reminder (since I covered it way up there), if you think a different time would be better, please mention/discuss below. We’ll try and finalize the time/date for this initial meeting by Tuesday or so.

I look forward to seeing you all Sunday!

I'm down for showing up whenever everyone else can make it. And don't hesitate to show up in the channel to say hi and hang out :)
