stickster themayor: Yes, just send around a suggested time 22:26
stickster themayor: Regarding release announcement -- I recall from the last meeting that you were going to coordinate with Docs, so if you need help with that, let me know. 22:26

|<-- mdomsch has left freenode ("Leaving") 22:27
moixs (Caroline?) 22:27

-->| SMParrish (n=quassel@cpe-069-134-255-095.nc.res.rr.com) has joined #fedora-meeting 22:28
stickster She's assigned, among other things, with Fedora as one of the projects under her wing 22:28
-->| jnettlet (n=jnettlet@c-76-24-25-45.hsd1.ma.comcast.net) has joined #fedora-meeting 22:28
moixs fantastic, now I know what you are talking about ;) 22:28
stickster So she helps us out by finding opportunities with the lay press, large outlets like ZDNet, CNet, and so forth -- making opportunities for us through setting up interviews and following up on Red Hat's press releases. 22:29
moixs Ok, I like her :D 22:29
=-= tatica is now known as tatica-out 22:30
themayor okay, awesome, what was the second topic 22:30
|<-- themayor_ has left freenode (Connection timed out) 22:30
stickster Obviously she's more than fully assigned inside Red Hat so she doesn't always have the chance to interface directly with us on the list, for example 22:31
stickster But I've been investigating some ways that we might be able to get some additional firepower from Red Hat to help with the NDN work 22:31
|<-- lcafiero has left freenode (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out)) 22:31
moixs Now I also like you 22:32
stickster hahaha 22:32
stickster Nothing concrete yet -- so it might not happen for the F11 release, but we definitely would like to do something interesting with F12 22:32
stickster I'll let people know details as soon as I have some to report 22:32
themayor yes, its just a lead, it might not lead to anything, but if it does it will be great 22:33
moixs We have a good infrastructure in theory, it's just not very efficient right now :/ 22:33
themayor well its the first time, i dont think we can expect anything really 22:34
moixs sure 22:34
themayor all we can do is get manpower to say okay we will try from now, and work from there 22:34
moixs After the release, it will be time to renew the NDN crew as planned 22:34
moixs Some people clearly need to be changed :/ 22:34
|<-- bo09 has left freenode ("Leaving") 22:35
themayor moixs: yes, but please let me know if there are issues so we can find someone to fill in 22:35
-->| tkjacobsen_ (n=tkjacobs@pppoe2-ves.broadcom.dk) has joined #fedora-meeting 22:35
moixs The biggest problem is feedback, but we can wait after the release to address that 22:36
themayor okay 22:36
themayor lets divide up the tasks that we have so far, so that we can make sure everyone is on the same page 22:37
* themayor has the news releases and podcasts, ndn work, coordinating everything else 22:37
themayor herlo: what do you got? 22:37
themayor plymouth and screenshot stuff, right? 22:37

stickster Are those the same thing? Different? I have Moksha on my plate but am not sure which is which 22:45
themayor yes same thing 22:45
themayor moksha is the codename for fedora community 22:46
themayor i think that one is the last one because thats a pretty big thing 22:46

-->| lcafiero (n=larry@dsl-63-249-115-153.dhcp.cruzio.com) has joined #fedora-meeting 22:47
stickster Can we get these aligned so that the FC podcast talks about FC and I can still fit in my stuff with Luke specifically on Moksha? 22:47
stickster Or should we just smoosh them together and call it a day? 22:47
themayor we can do two if you want 22:48
themayor actually make them one and we can call it Moksha and Fedora Community 22:48
themayor did you do audio on that yet? 22:48
stickster No, I'm just waiting for a time from Luke though. 22:49
themayor okay so do you want to smosh them together and talk about both moksha and fedora community then? and we can call it a day? 22:49
-->| Pikachu_2014 (n=Pikachu_@85-169-120-252.rev.numericable.fr) has joined #fedora-meeting 22:50
stickster themayor: Yeah, I'd say, let's concentrate on the story with the FC stuff together 22:51
stickster themayor: I can always work on a more in-depth Moksha exploration post-F11 22:51
themayor okay awesome 22:51
stickster But if you could post the raw audio so I could hear it and make some suggestions on editing, that would be good 22:51

themayor okay sure 22:52
themayor ill post up my other stuff to fedora people soon 22:52
