greg-gHello and welcome to the Ubuntu Membership Review Board for the23:15
greg-gAmericas meeting for March 11th. The wiki page for the Review Board is23:15
greg-gavailable here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/RegionalBoards/Americas23:15
greg-gWe will attempt to get through all of the applicants that have added themselves to that list before today's meeting. If we are unable to make it through the entire list due to time constraints, then at the next meeting we will pick up where we left off.23:15
greg-gThe format for the meeting is as follows: We will go through the list of applicants one by one, by date of application (FIFO).23:15
greg-gEach applicant should introduce themselves (1-5 sentences) and provide links to their Ubuntu Wiki page. After the introduction the members of the Membership Review Board will review the pages and, if needed, ask the applicant further questions.23:16
greg-gDuring this time it is encouraged for other members of the community to show their support for the applicant. Do not be alarmed if the members of the Membership Review Board are quiet during this time; they are most likely reading wiki/launchpad/forum/other pages and deciding how they are going to vote.23:16
greg-gWhen the board is ready to vote, they will publicly vote in the channel with either +1, 0, or -1 (for membership, abstain, and against membership, respectively). If the sum of those numbers is positive, then the applicant is now an official Ubuntu member! (feel free congratulate them!)23:16
greg-gNow, with any further ado, lets get started with the first applicant...23:16

MootBotNew Topic:  fader membership23:24
fader_I'm Ronald McCollam, and my wiki page is here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/fader23:24
fader_I've been a Linux user since about 1995, and been increasingly involved with the community as time goes on.  I've been using and evangelizing Ubuntu for around 5 years now.23:24
fader_I am currently a Canonical employee on the QA team and do testing on a range of hardware.  Outside of work, I also do ad-hoc testing, ISO testing, and general support on IRC and a few online and real-world fora.23:24
fader_I'm trying to develop more programming skills as well in order to make software as well as use it, but it's slow going for my poor old brain :)23:24
pleia2fader_: I know mythbuntu is on the "todo wishlist" but do you have any idea how you'd like to contribute there?23:27
pleia2(it's one of my favorite projects too, so I had to ask :))23:27
fader_pleia2: My plans are a little vague, to be honest.  I'd love to try to help improve its stability and features but that's currently beyond my abilities.  So for the time being it's just testing and bug reporting.23:27
fader_I use it all the time, so I'm definitely motivated to help :)23:27
pleia2I'm sure they appreciate that23:28
Davieyfader_: well feel free to jump in, the water is lovely23:28
greg-gfader_: you live near Boston, do you know doctormo and the other MA loco people?23:29
beuno# user support on Craigslist23:29
fader_Daviey: :D  I'll give it a shot.23:29
beunothat's a first!23:29
beunoI didn't know there was such a thing23:29
fader_greg-g: I met them recently.  Until recently I lived a little too far out to make it to many loco events, but I recently moved and hope to go more frequently.23:29
beunofader_, what's that group like?23:29
fader_I made it to the release party for karmic though and got to meet doctormo :)23:29
greg-gfader_: good deal :)23:30
fader_beuno: It's a pretty decent group of people... it's not as high-traffic as the ubuntu forums though, which I think have taken a lot of its traffic in the last couple of years23:30
fader_(not that that is a bad thing! ;) )23:30
beunoit's amazing how the ubuntu community has everything covered23:31
* Nafallo mumbles about the power for the forums servers...23:31
fader_beuno: Indeed... usually I find answers to my questions before I can even ask them anywhere else!23:31
fader_Nafallo: shh!  Go to sleep, it's past your bedtime!23:31
beunoNafallo, about all the power they use?  :)23:31
oubiwannif it's permissible, I'd like to say that I've recently worked with fader_ closely on a project for Google + Canonical, and he was phenomenal: dedicated and committed; throughly and deeply invested in Ubuntu and its continued quest for quality23:31

Yasumoto_Hello guys, I'm Joe Smith, a member of the Ubuntu California team. I've been active in planning and running events since 2007, and have had a blast :) At SCaLE8x in February, I was convinced that it's alright to spend some of my "Open Source Time" on applying for membership rather than on LoCo stuff. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Yasumoto23:33
Yasumoto_I love the Ubuntu community, and have spent time working on Bug Triage for various compnonents, IRC and Forum help, and a lot of LoCo stuff, which I've focused on to do something a little different from my schoolwork.23:35
greg-gYasumoto_: how are loco events going for CA right now?23:36
Yasumoto_We just exhibited at the SoCal Linux Expo on February19th-21st, where we held the first Ubucon of the year :)23:37
rwwI've worked with Yasumoto for about a year as part of the California LoCo team. He's absolutely invaluable for our event planning. His attitude is awesome, he's a huge asset to our team, and I'm happy he finally got around to applying, because he totally deserves membership :)23:37
pleia2thanks rww!23:37
beunoYasumoto_, what drew you to the Ubuntu community?23:37
Yasumoto_We're also planning our events for the Global Jam, being a big state, we need to coordinate a few events scattered throughout23:38

dmizerHello all! I've been using Ubuntu since Hoary (Ubuntu has come SO far). I have been a member of the Ubuntuforum community since March of 2006. I have been a moderator of the Ubuntuforum staff since July of 2008.23:41
dmizerMost of my contribution effort is focused on the forum, but I would like to start participating in the Japan loco now that my Japanese ability is good enough to allow me to participate. I would also like to expand my presence professionally upon finishing my LPIC1 and LPIC2 exams.23:41
beunodmizer, you have overwhelming support!23:43
Technovikingdmizer: how big is the Japan loco?23:43
beunoI'm impressed, you've done a lot of hard work23:43

beunodmizer, what do you think Ubuntu lacks the most today?23:44
beunoTechnoviking, that makes 2 of us!23:44
dmizerbueno: as unfortunate as it is, i think there is work to be done with regard to hardware support, particularly in areas like wireless and printer support.23:45
ozzie_good answer23:46
pleia2I assume this comes from still seeing a lot of hardware support questions on the forums?23:46
