Feb 20 21:58:26 <quaid> <meeting>
Feb 20 21:58:37 <quaid> ... cuz someone had to pull the trigger :D
Feb 20 21:59:06 <jmbuser> Hello, everyone - just a second as I pull up
Feb 20 21:59:10 <EvilBob> stickster (Paul Frields) is not able to join us today
Feb 20 21:59:44 <EvilBob> quaid (Karsten Wade) is multitasking
Feb 20 21:59:58 <EvilBob> I am Bob Jensen
Feb 20 22:00:12 <jmbuser> John Babich
Feb 20 22:00:21 <quaid> I am Fedora
Feb 20 22:00:23 <couf> bpepple|lt: art Couvreur here
Feb 20 22:00:24 <jsmith> Jared Smith (eating and typing at the same time)
Feb 20 22:00:26 <quaid> uh, that is, Karsten
Feb 20 22:00:34 <couf> ow that wasn't for you bpepple|lt
Feb 20 22:00:42 <jsmith> quaid: You are Fedora and I can too?
Feb 20 22:01:03 <quaid> kthx!
Feb 20 22:01:18 * Southern_Gentlem
(n=notfred at unaffiliated/southerngentlem/x-2894754) has joined
Feb 20 22:01:50 <EvilBob> Southern_Gentlem is Ben Williams, he is one
of my partners on the Install Guide
Feb 20 22:02:00 * jmbuser is on a connection slightly better than dialup
Feb 20 22:02:05 <Sparks> Eric
Feb 20 22:02:27 <quaid> EvilBob: can you back up jmbuser to drive the
meeting if jmbuser drops and I appear distracted?
Feb 20 22:02:40 <EvilBob> quaid: always
Feb 20 22:02:42 <quaid> jmbuser: I think the previous agenda should suffice
Feb 20 22:03:00
is the link
Feb 20 22:03:14 <couf> wiki slowness
Feb 20 22:03:49 <jmbuser> please ignore my lousy time and date link
Feb 20 22:05:16 <EvilBob> One Summary update
Feb 20 22:05:26 <EvilBob> Who has this task?
Feb 20 22:05:31 * mbacovsk has quit (Connection timed out)
Feb 20 22:05:52 <quaid> jonrob and I have been bouncing it a bit, i guess
Feb 20 22:06:03 <EvilBob> quaid: any updates?
Feb 20 22:06:08 <quaid> I think he and I got a good understanding last
time, and may have consensus :)
Feb 20 22:06:13 <quaid> the misunderstanding, for the record,
Feb 20 22:06:26 <quaid> was that folks thought the Single Summary is intended
Feb 20 22:06:29 <quaid> to be read from top to bottom
Feb 20 22:06:41 <quaid> rather, instead, it is meant to be a source
for other things that are themselves read alone
Feb 20 22:07:14 <quaid> so we can have slightly duplicate information
for different audiences, all in the one SingleSUmmary
Feb 20 22:07:30 <EvilBob> Sure
Feb 20 22:07:49 <quaid> otherwise, we'll have to do more work there as
Feb 20 22:07:57 <quaid> we have that on the schedule?
Feb 20 22:08:24 * kital has quit (Remote closed the connection)
Feb 20 22:08:45 <EvilBob> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/9/Schedule
Feb 20 22:09:34 <EvilBob> I do not see it on
Feb 20 22:09:37 * JSchmitt (n=s4504kr at p54B11803.dip0.t-ipconnect.de)
has joined #fedora-meeting
Feb 20 22:11:06 <EvilBob> so we need to get that targeted and info
sent to poelcat
Feb 20 22:11:19 <EvilBob> next items
Feb 20 22:11:35 <EvilBob> Update on active content work
Feb 20 22:12:05 <jmbuser> Relnotes one sheet - anyone?
Feb 20 22:12:15 <EvilBob> any of the active documents have an update
Feb 20 22:12:19 * wolfy (n=lonewolf at fedora/wolfy) has left
#fedora-meeting ("Be Naughty! Save Santa the trip.")
Feb 20 22:12:43 <jmbuser> DUG has been quiet lately
Feb 20 22:13:24 <jmbuser> I believe Crypto Guide had some activity recently
Feb 20 22:13:42 <Sparks> A little
Feb 20 22:14:27 <jmbuser> Sparks: Care to expand on that?
Feb 20 22:14:36 <Sparks> I haven't had the time to spend on really
putting the information together...
Feb 20 22:14:51 <Sparks> but some of the information is out there it
just needs to be pulled in...
Feb 20 22:15:20 <Sparks> to the Crypto Guide. i don't know how
indepth I really need to go for...
Feb 20 22:15:40 <Sparks> the LUKS portion as it is fairly automated in
F9. The procedure is...
Feb 20 22:15:53 <Sparks> still there for users of F8. EOF
Feb 20 22:16:14 <jmbuser> Sparks: Thanks
Feb 20 22:16:22 * jmtaylor
(n=jason at c-76-112-119-170.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined
Feb 20 22:16:34 <EvilBob> I have a couple things for the IG, this week
we will be looking things over to figure out our time line for poelcat
Feb 20 22:16:59 * kital (n=Joerg_Si at fedora/kital) has joined #fedora-meeting
Feb 20 22:17:23 <EvilBob> I need to get a couple F9Alpha installs done
so I am up to speed
Feb 20 22:17:29 <EvilBob> EOF
Feb 20 22:17:39 <couf> AG is as DUG pretty silent the last time
Feb 20 22:17:46 <jmbuser> EvilBob: And thanks to you
Feb 20 22:17:49 <couf> need to get that back up to speed and do the conversion
Feb 20 22:18:35 * kital has quit (Remote closed the connection)
Feb 20 22:18:40 <jmbuser> couf: Is the AG pretty much complete?
Feb 20 22:19:02 * kital (n=Joerg_Si at fedora/kital) has joined #fedora-meeting
Feb 20 22:19:09 <quaid> can anyone work with poelcat to get our
schedule updated? we have tarets that are not integrated, etc.
Feb 20 22:19:24 <couf> honestly I haven't got time to look at it lately
Feb 20 22:19:37 * kital has quit (Remote closed the connection)
Feb 20 22:19:57 <jmbuser> Thanks, Couf - back to quaid's question
Feb 20 22:20:04 <couf> so I'm feeling a slip coming, if we look at the
Feb 20 22:20:20 <jmbuser> or not...
Feb 20 22:20:53 <EvilBob> quaid: I will see if I can get with poelcat
Feb 20 22:21:00 * sereinity

Feb 20 22:21:05 * Southern_Gentlem has quit ("In a world without
walls, who needs Windows")
Feb 20 22:21:09 * poelcat books flight to MN
Feb 20 22:21:24 <quaid> yeah, it might all be there but it's not in
one place or ratified
Feb 20 22:21:33 <EvilBob> poelcat: do I need to call the butcher and
clean the spare room?
Feb 20 22:22:34 * Southern_Gentlem
(n=notfred at unaffiliated/southerngentlem/x-2894754) has joined
Feb 20 22:22:37 <EvilBob> The wind chill was -45F this morning
Feb 20 22:23:33 * kital (n=Joerg_Si at fedora/kital) has joined #fedora-meeting
Feb 20 22:23:45 <quaid> yeah, but at least it's not raining like in Portland!
Feb 20 22:23:48 <EvilBob> Beats?
Feb 20 22:23:55 <jmbuser> EvilBob: So you and poelcat will stave off
the cold by revising the schedule?
Feb 20 22:24:02 <quaid> beats are too quiet
Feb 20 22:24:09 <EvilBob> how is the Release notes coming?
Feb 20 22:24:14 <quaid> we need to push on all the sub-projects we
know to start putting in their stuff
Feb 20 22:24:29 <jmbuser> especially ConsoleKit/PolicyKit inclusion?
Feb 20 22:24:40 <quaid> fortunately I think a lot of stuff is
happening in the Features that usually happens in the Beats
Feb 20 22:25:12 <jmbuser> true
Feb 20 22:25:20 <EvilBob> quaid: is that going to be enough?
Feb 20 22:26:45 <EvilBob> OK next
Feb 20 22:27:02 <jmbuser> Meeting Time settled or need more discussion?
Feb 20 22:27:05 <EvilBob> I know quaid will answer when he has a chance
Feb 20 22:27:13 * couf probably going to disappear in a few, freenode
Feb 20 22:27:17 <EvilBob> Meeting time
Feb 20 22:27:25 <stickster> EvilBob: Installation Guide?
Feb 20 22:27:28 <EvilBob> is this good for everyone?
Feb 20 22:27:41 <EvilBob> stickster: yes?
Feb 20 22:27:57 <EvilBob> stickster: I noted it above
Feb 20 22:28:04 <stickster> Sorry, I looked back and missed it
Feb 20 22:28:22 <EvilBob> stickster: It's OK
Feb 20 22:28:59 <jmbuser> Concerning the meeting time - this works for me
Feb 20 22:29:04 <quaid> EvilBob: probably not enough
Feb 20 22:29:38 <EvilBob> the IG is going to take three phases, Update
existing content, Return/rewrite older dropped content, add new
Feb 20 22:29:57 <EvilBob> at least that is what we see right now
Feb 20 22:30:36 <EvilBob> quaid: OK I will look through and start
bugging people, will CC the list when I do so via email
Feb 20 22:31:22 * pingou has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
Feb 20 22:31:24 <EvilBob> Meeting time is good

Feb 20 22:31:44 <jmbuser> Everyone agree on the meeting time?
Feb 20 22:32:02 * pingou (n=Pingou at fedora/pingou) has joined #fedora-meeting
Feb 20 22:32:02 <jsmith> Uh...
Feb 20 22:32:04 <EvilBob> I think we do agree on the meeting time
Feb 20 22:32:10 <EvilBob> jsmith??
Feb 20 22:32:17 <EvilBob> you are the odd man out
Feb 20 22:32:24 <jsmith> Making it Wednesday permanently?
Feb 20 22:32:28 <EvilBob> jsmith: is this workable?
Feb 20 22:32:36 <couf> fine for me
Feb 20 22:32:42 <jsmith> Sure... and hour earlier would work better
for me, but if this works best for everyone else, I'll make it work
Feb 20 22:32:44 <EvilBob> jsmith: nothing is perenent
Feb 20 22:32:46 <quaid> ok2me
Feb 20 22:33:10 <EvilBob> permanent
Feb 20 22:33:25 <jmbuser> jsmith: Thanks for the flexibility.
Feb 20 22:33:25 <EvilBob> but "for now"
Feb 20 22:33:28 <jsmith> OK, sounds good
Feb 20 22:33:30 <jsmith> +1
Feb 20 22:33:36 <jmbuser> +1
Feb 20 22:33:40 <EvilBob> +1

Feb 20 22:34:21 <Southern_Gentlem> stickster quaid VOTE
Feb 20 22:34:26 <EvilBob> jsmith: back off, I am driving this train
Feb 20 22:34:33 <EvilBob> LOL
Feb 20 22:34:38 <quaid> 'sides I already voted :)
Feb 20 22:34:41 <stickster> +1
Feb 20 22:34:50 <jmbuser> OK, so Time: 1900 Hrs UTC it is
Feb 20 22:35:02 <jmbuser> Date: Wednesday
Feb 20 22:35:03 <quaid> in that I made the proposal!
Feb 20 22:35:03 <stickster> What was that issue again?
Feb 20 22:35:03 <stickster> j/k
Feb 20 22:35:03 <quaid> heh
Feb 20 22:35:03 <EvilBob> We have all in
Feb 20 22:35:04 <jsmith> It's anonymous! ;-)
Feb 20 22:35:07 * DanseMakabre (i=pat at bobo.ds5.agh.edu.pl) has joined
Feb 20 22:35:10 <quaid> EvilBob: btw, I started an email to the list
about vice chairs and all that jazz, but never got in completed :)
Feb 20 22:35:11 <jsmith> Or magnanimous... or something...
Feb 20 22:35:17 <quaid> but I did want to get that into the agenda
Feb 20 22:35:45 <couf> so Leadership then?
Feb 20 22:35:53 <jmbuser> quaid: So you did
Feb 20 22:35:57 <EvilBob> Since FUDcon and before we have been talking
about our leadership
Feb 20 22:36:31 <EvilBob> it has been known that for some time now
quaid has expressed interest in getting replaced
Feb 20 22:36:54 <EvilBob> We were going to railroad stickster in to
that job but he found another one
Feb 20 22:37:25 <EvilBob> We have done a poor job of grooming leadership
Feb 20 22:37:42 <EvilBob> we have focused on the few and left many behind
Feb 20 22:37:57 <quaid> well, we've been focused on making a system to
Feb 20 22:38:00 <quaid> and teach ppl how to do that
Feb 20 22:38:09 <quaid> which has been pretty successful itself
Feb 20 22:38:22 <EvilBob> What i suggested to quaid was a Vice Chair
that is, a Chair in training
Feb 20 22:39:00 <quaid> right, which forces the current Chair (me) to
get whatever down in the wiki that is missing and to train the VC to
do that in the future.
Feb 20 22:39:14 <EvilBob> a 18month? term that would include 6months
of learning the ropes and 6months of teaching the next one
Feb 20 22:39:25 <quaid> also, a VC gives a chance to split up active
leadership duties more, so more gets done
Feb 20 22:40:10 <EvilBob> so with our next election we would be voting
in a Vice Chair
Feb 20 22:40:36 <EvilBob> this Vice chair becomes the big deal after 6 months
Feb 20 22:40:37 <Sparks> ?
Feb 20 22:40:47 * herlo (n=clints at 166-70-63-209.ip.xmission.com) has
Feb 20 22:40:51 <couf> fair proposition
Feb 20 22:40:53 <EvilBob> Sparks: Yes?
Feb 20 22:41:00 <Sparks> When are elections and how is voting handled?
Feb 20 22:41:33 <EvilBob> Sparks: FESCo picks it's leadership
Feb 20 22:41:53 <EvilBob> Sparks: the group of 7 votes
Feb 20 22:42:02 <Sparks> Ahhh... okay...
Feb 20 22:42:25 <jmbuser> FAMSCo works the same way
Feb 20 22:42:25 <EvilBob> Sparks: the membership picks FDSCo
Feb 20 22:42:33 <EvilBob> FDSCo picks it;s leader
Feb 20 22:42:57 <Sparks> That works. Thanks
Feb 20 22:43:01 <EvilBob> NP
Feb 20 22:43:37 <EvilBob> I would like to ask jmbuser if he is
interested in becoming our next leader
Feb 20 22:44:01 <EvilBob> or anyone else in FDSCo
Feb 20 22:44:18 <EvilBob> was that to obvious?
Feb 20 22:44:20 <EvilBob> lOL
Feb 20 22:44:27 * Southern_Gentlem does a happy dance
Feb 20 22:44:38 <jmbuser> Perhaps someone should propose and someone
second the motion
Feb 20 22:45:02 <quaid> to be clearer
Feb 20 22:45:03 <EvilBob> Well we do not want to actually railroad
anyone, are you willing?
Feb 20 22:45:30 <jmbuser> If everybody else is OK with it, I'm willing
Feb 20 22:46:05 <EvilBob> I would like to motion that we appoint
jmbuser our Vice Chair
Feb 20 22:46:28 <quaid> Bob and I have been discussing all this in
asides, and also talking with John (jmbuser)
Feb 20 22:46:41 <quaid> because he has been showing interest in leading more
Feb 20 22:46:48 <quaid> but we haven't had asides with everyone here
Feb 20 22:46:54 <EvilBob> right
Feb 20 22:46:55 <quaid> so this is the first chance all of you are
hearing about it
Feb 20 22:47:03 <quaid> and we might want to give a few days to think
about it all?
Feb 20 22:47:07 <quaid> or not, which we can vote on
Feb 20 22:47:25 <EvilBob> I would think that we would vote next week
Feb 20 22:47:38 * petreu (n=peter at fedora/Standby) has joined #fedora-meeting
Feb 20 22:47:59 <EvilBob> did we lose the server couf is on?
Feb 20 22:48:04 <jmbuser> That works for me
Feb 20 22:48:07 <couf> not yet, sorry
Feb 20 22:48:10 <EvilBob> OK
Feb 20 22:48:11 <couf> was distracted
Feb 20 22:48:36 <couf> jmbuser++
Feb 20 22:48:46 <EvilBob> OK we have a second
Feb 20 22:49:07 <EvilBob> Do we want to vote this week or next?
Feb 20 22:49:18 <EvilBob> I am fine with either
Feb 20 22:50:09 <quaid> any objection
Feb 20 22:50:12 <couf> yeah fine both ways too
Feb 20 22:50:13 <quaid> to voting about it right now?
Feb 20 22:50:16 <Southern_Gentlem> quaid, if you operate on roberts
rule of order say next week
Feb 20 22:50:22 <quaid> stickster, jsmith ?
Feb 20 22:50:29 * bpepple|lt has quit ("Ex-Chat")
Feb 20 22:50:33 <quaid> Southern_Gentlem: eh, we're pretty informal there :)
Feb 20 22:50:49 <jsmith> quaid: I'm OK...
Feb 20 22:50:54 <EvilBob> We are almost out of time, lets address it
first thing next week
Feb 20 22:50:59 <quaid> yeah
Feb 20 22:51:02 <jmbuser> Agreed
Feb 20 22:51:02 <quaid> we can then discuss it on list
Feb 20 22:51:03 <jsmith> (Sorry, phone call)
Feb 20 22:51:07 <quaid> make sure we aren't missing anything
Feb 20 22:51:15 <EvilBob> that will let our people weigh in on the list also
Feb 20 22:51:21 <quaid> I want people who are not in FDSCo to get the
Feb 20 22:51:27 <quaid> that there is room to be a leader here, etc.
Feb 20 22:51:31 <stickster> List is fine although I remember seeing
this a while back in quaid's blog
Feb 20 22:51:35 <couf> I'll try to get something from glezos this
weekend on this
Feb 20 22:51:36 <stickster> jmbuser++ by the way
Feb 20 22:51:45 <quaid> stickster: oh is that where I wrote about it? :)
Feb 20 22:51:47 <couf> seeing him this weekend (fosdem)
Feb 20 22:51:53 <quaid> fosdem++
Feb 20 22:51:54 <stickster> I think you did
Feb 20 22:52:02 <EvilBob> OK AOB?
Feb 20 22:52:02 <stickster> it all kind of jams together after a while.
Feb 20 22:52:10 <stickster> I write things down so I don't have to remember it.
Feb 20 22:52:16 <stickster> I mean, HAHAHAHAHA
Feb 20 22:52:17 <quaid> my only OB was to make sure we did a schedule
update and sanity check
Feb 20 22:52:31 <EvilBob> quaid: I added that to my list
Feb 20 22:52:44 <jmbuser> Publican familiarity, any thoughts?
Feb 20 22:53:07 <jmbuser> jsmith: Have you ironed out the issues you had?
Feb 20 22:53:09 <EvilBob> quaid: I will touch on that with poelcat,
you and stickster before the next meeting
Feb 20 22:54:14 <jsmith> jmbuser: Yes, I've ironed them out
Feb 20 22:54:31 <jmbuser> jsmith: impressions?
Feb 20 22:54:41 <jsmith> I'd be happy to help people get up to speed
Feb 20 22:54:44 <jsmith> jmbuser: I love it
Feb 20 22:54:57 <jsmith> jmbuser: I wasn't very familiar with the old
system, but publican is very nice
Feb 20 22:55:02 <couf> EvilBob: add me to that list
Feb 20 22:55:06 <jsmith> jmbuser: I'm sure we'll run into some snags
Feb 20 22:55:15 <jsmith> jmbuser: But it's got a "two thumbs up" from me
Feb 20 22:55:33 <EvilBob> couf: yup
Feb 20 22:55:38 <couf> danke
Feb 20 22:56:25 <jmbuser> jsmith: That's good to hear - the "old
system" also works well and I think we need to stick to it for the F9
Feb 20 22:56:30 <couf> motion to close?
Feb 20 22:56:47 <EvilBob> seconded
Feb 20 22:56:59 <jmbuser> Anything else - if not.. let's call it
