meetingologyMeeting started at 12:25:48 UTC.  The chair is diddledani.  Information about MeetBot at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/meetingology12:25
meetingologyAvailable commands: action, commands, idea, info, link, nick12:25
diddledaniapplicants, please wait till you're called. Here comes the big paste introduction to start the meeting:12:27
diddledaniHello and welcome to the Ubuntu Membership Review Board meeting for 21 December 2022. The wiki page for the Review Boards is available here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/Boards12:27
diddledaniWe will attempt to get through all the applicants that have added themselves to that list, or posted a thread to the Ubuntu Discourse, before today's meeting. If we are unable to make it through the complete list due to time constraints, then at the next meeting we will pick up where we left off.12:27
diddledaniThe format for the meeting is as follows: We will go through the list of applicants one by one, by date of application (FIFO).12:27
diddledaniEach applicant should introduce themselves (1-5 sentences) and provide links to their Ubuntu Wiki page or Ubuntu Discourse thread. After the introduction, the members of the Membership Review Board will review the pages and, if needed, ask the applicant further questions.12:27
diddledaniDuring 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 reading wiki/launchpad/forum/other pages and deciding how they are going to vote.12:27
diddledaniWhen 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 most of the voting board members vote +1, then the applicant is now an official Ubuntu member! (Feel free congratulate them!)12:27
diddledaniNow, with any further ado, let's get started with the first applicant...12:27
diddledaniSo, first up we have Kangarooo Jānis. Kangaroo, could you please introduce yourself to the board, share your pre-written statement, and share the links to your wiki page and launchpad account...12:28

KangaroooKubuntu i think after ~2016 became fast then only on that and infecting people computers with this antivirus for Bug #1.12:28

KangaroooThats not a bug diddledani :)12:30
diddledaniPlease stand by while the board members review the details you've provided, and then I'll invite them to ask any questions they may have :-)12:30
diddledaniare we all ready? I'd like to now invite the board members to ask any questions they have...12:33
Wildmanne39Kangarooo, I do not see any testimonials do you have someone here to vouch for your contributions12:33
Kangarooooh no, no one, ive been to loco 3 release parties and on email contacted, but bug reports are in my launchpad Launchpad Bugs reported totaly 399 (update: 928), commented other bugs 38612:34
KangaroooQuestions : 2 (update: 18)12:34
-ubottu:#ubuntu-meeting- Bug 386 in Baz (deprecated) "change to removed files does not conflict" [Medium, Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/38612:34
Kangarooocan i call now from linux centre for someone to join? if they will remember me, but theres no contribution other then bug repors and installing people computers- around 50 now. so can call clients. but they wont be able to know how to join irc.12:36
KilosKangarooo  are you a member of any loco?12:36
Kilosjoining a loco and working with them shows your commitment and you get those you work with to do your testimonials12:38
Bashing-omKangarooo: In the same vien of contributions - the emphasis is on "sustained contributions" - though you have activity from as early as 2009 - what contributions have you made recently and what is the state now of Latviešu Latvian Ubuntu LoCo Team ?12:38
KangaroooLatvian Loco but its innactive and we have tried to talk about it, so i was allways wanting to make it active. Still members made loco events for who was following lists. LoCo went to 3 Release party presentation events. Then from about 10 business idea presentations, 20 contests and 30 hackathons got natural courage to speak and present in public layman and techical term talking modes, so could organize presentation12:38
Kangaroooalso now. So Then in 2020 wanted to join repair cafe where people fix bikes and electronics, to fix computers and infect with X/L/K/Ubuntu, but it was because of covid canceled. So want to make it active now.12:38
mapreriFWIW (since you mentioned it) I don't think I would like to consider installing ubuntu in customer's as something relevant for the membership :)12:39
KangaroooThen just bug reports and askubuntu.com12:40
Kangaroooand forum12:40
Kangarooojust now joined discourse12:40
diddledaniI note that a few references on your wiki page mention now using ubuntu releases that are out of support... are you still using those or did you not update those parts of your wiki page?12:40
diddledanido you have any record of those release parties, and presentations to the public?12:44
KangaroooNow Ubuntu with gnome and Kubuntu, on some old computers is lubuntu and home data server lubuntu. Ubuntu remix out of support? That was amazing for smal screen. Nothing else but that also dont have now. Which other ones out of support? Other non ubuntu mentioned that have tested them. "tested some time "12:44
mapreriI reckon he is likely mentioning the A/S/L part that mentions ubuntu 10.04 and I have no idea why (nor I know what A/S/L means)12:46
mapreriprobably history?12:46
Kangarooooh i was filming- i need to find. I was suggesting to make all social networks and to put on youtube but no one had time to continue talking, i just prepared channels. Let me check if i uploaded in that one unpublished for now.12:46
maprerisince it goes from there all the way to WSL 22.0412:46
diddledaniFTR: my pronouns are she/her :-)12:46
KangaroooAge/Sex/Location description - but for IT it would be experience in mind of related topic- Ubuntu field12:47
Kangaroooits from some irc slang i learned12:47
maprerididdledani: sorry :( - I keep forgetting12:48
diddledaniok, I think we'll have to move onto the vote, because we're running out of time12:48

meetingologyCurrent voters: Bashing-om, Kilos, Wildmanne39, diddledani, mapreri12:48
KangaroooI didnt had time to apply earlier but at fist i forgot- was busy with filing bug reports for crashes and following up, keeping old systems to answer if in previous version is fixed, so life took turn to getting interested in bug fixing and didnt made other things.12:48
KangaroooIn future want to manage or build Baltic (Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania) Ubuntu consocium and starting with steps in helping fix Latvian Loco activity.12:48
KangaroooWant to make better flavour for 1st time users, since im installing and some people strugle so need to set it up. Currently installed for about 50 computers all flavours.12:48
KangaroooAnd need to learn how to start new project on github and launchpad so with idea and first bad scripts, so people could join and make adjustments or add gui for everyday people.12:48
diddledani(did I catch everyone in the voters command?)12:48
maprerilooks right to me12:49
Wildmanne39I think so12:49
diddledani-1 Unfortunately I'm voting no at this time, because I would like to see more evidence of sustained and significant contributions to the community, and at least one testimonial from someone else in the community. I also like to see wiki pages be updated for the application to remove out of date information.12:53

Kiloswork where ubuntu users can give you testimonials12:55
mapreriFWIW, you also mentioned the forums and askubuntu, but looking at those I also don't see any sustained contributions there.12:56
KangaroooHow they should look like, for what contributions? In loco we didnt finish any plans12:56
diddledaniI'm sorry that you didn't get in this time around, Kangarooo, but please do keep going and don't feel disheartened by this result. We'd love to see you come back again in the future when you have more evidence/testimonials12:56
Wildmanne39Kangarooo, Yes need to have testimonials for next time and wait about six months so you have sustained contributions12:57
diddledaniis everyone ok to continue to mIk3_08's application? we'll be overrunning...12:57
Kangarooook, if as advertisment manager i set up loco social networks till end so that more people join from website12:57
mapreriI'd rather we reschedule tbh12:57
mapreriI could continue, but I have other business to take care of myself12:58
diddledaniok, next up we have Michael Quisido III. mIk3_08, could you introduce yourself to the board, share your pre-written statement and links to your wiki and launchpad?12:58
Bashing-omI can go on.12:59
mIk3_08Hi everyone. I am mike (mIk3_08) I always love Linux because when we say security, it always comes to my mind its "LINUX". Im active in ubuntuforum community for a while now and also in launchpad  All the details of my activities here in ubuntu are all in my wiki page. just see my application. Thanks a lot.12:59
mIk3_08here is my wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/mike-quisido12:59
diddledaniok, I'll give the board a few moments to read through and then it's question time :-)13:00
mIk3_08Thanks a lot diddledani.... copy.13:01
maprerimIk3_08: I see you have nobody in your testimonials section in the wiki.  do you have any?13:01
Bashing-ommIk3_08: Anyone can write anything in a WIKI - how are we to assertion that what you have written is the truth ?13:02
diddledanimIk3_08, in your contributions you've listed several projects along with "completed" or not. Could you details what those contributions included and how you determined they are "completed"?13:03
maprerirather, I have troubles understanding what your contributions even are.  you just listed some programs there…?13:03
mIk3_08As of now.. none.. Thanks too early I think for testimonials. I still don't have any achievements currently. and about the completed parts of my contributions, I might update for that for more details.13:04
mIk3_08 Thats too early I think for testimonials. I still don't have any achievements currently. and about the completed parts of my contributions, I might update for that for more details.13:05
mIk3_08mapreri im current active in ubuntuforum13:06
mIk3_08diddledani i may update some links for that if needed for those completed part of my contributions in Launchpad soon.13:09
KilosmIk3_08  if you can get someone in the forums you work with to write testimonials about your contributions , that will be a big help13:11
mIk3_08Bashing-om: you know me already. I know you already in your Fridge..13:11
KilosmIk3_08  you applied before as well?13:12
mapreriPersonally, not following the forum I have trouble understanding how to value those contributions.  I see you have about 1k posts and in the past month you have been somewhat active (I seem unable to get a longer history), but I can't really value the quality of those posts myself at this time.13:12
mapreriThat's why testimonials are so important! :)13:12
mIk3_08Kilos testimonials are too early this time. as i mentioned earlier.  Yes. I already applied years back ago13:13
mapreriwell, having testimonials after the membership is granted is not really useful, now is it ^^13:13
KilosmIk3_08  maybe work with those guys till they are happy to write your testimonials13:14
KilosI dont remember anyone getting membership without good testimonials13:14
diddledaniI think we're all done with questions?13:14

mIk3_08Thanks guys13:18
Bashing-om-1 As I do not see substantions for Ubuntu contributions - Short term contributions in support is not enough to justify membership.13:18

KilosThanks guys13:21
diddledanioh. dm received13:22
Kangarooocan someone ask to update our ubuntu.lv dns ? its been more the week since host from linux center sent new dns but where should i ping that no response from rt admin canon13:34
Bashing-omKangarooo: Open a ticket at https://rt.ubuntu.com/ ( request tracker ).13:39
Kangarooooh, i see its there 10 days alredy from email sent- nothing has bee done. ticket is there from linux centre made Bashing-om  can13:43
Kangarooooh, question- from bug reports can see some part of computers that has it installed. also some old computers didnt work new versions so even old versions have new bug reports. thouse dont count when testing on them if all works?14:58
Kangarooosome computers need old out of support versions15:03
Kangarooocan launchpad karma be used? i had a lot, but then was not ready to speak and present, now can but karma is less of recent activity in launchpad15:15
KangaroooCan this sentence be changed in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/NewMember#Testimonials that points from testimonials not just speed cause i could wait even week. "If there are recognized members of the Ubuntu community supporting you at the meeting, this will definitely speed up the process of approving you." I understand it gives speed not points so i dont need speed. i can wait week or 2.15:17
EickmeyerKangarooo: You'd be best reaching out in DMs as those you were in a meeting with have left the channel.15:19
