GFbotGood morning everyone!11:04
jelknerGood morning11:04
GFbotlet's start with our meeting for today.11:04
GFbotFirst item: "How do we find a solution to our email Spam problem?"11:05
jelknerthis is connected to the 2nd one11:05
jelkneris it time to run our own email server?11:05
ubuntouristI say we have to bite the bullet and run our own mail server11:05
GFboti was reading about that this week jelkner11:06
GFbotbut, no sure exactly what service should we use11:06
jelknercan we each do some investigation this week11:06
ubuntouristThere are a number of "walk-throughs" that take you through the basic process. Beware though: Since we're already invested in PostgreSQL,11:07
jelknerand put it on our agenda next week to see if we can make a decision?11:07
jelkneryes, ubuntourist, we want PostgreSQL11:07
jelknerno doubt about that11:07
jelknerit's the best open source database11:07
jelknerbest GIS support11:07
GFbotjelkner can we ask Douglas for some help on that?11:08
jelknerGFbot, no11:08
jelknerhe was against it11:08
ubuntouristremember to replace "MySQL" with "PostgreSQL" in various tutorials.11:08
jelknersince he doesn't know that well11:08
GFbotjelkner got it.11:08
jelknerso this is in ubuntourist's hands11:08
jelknerwe will follow his lead11:08
ubuntouristThe thing I don't know about is DNS. So, I may muddle through or try to get help for ... "MX records"? I think.11:09
GFbotright 11:09
jelknerubuntourist, we have lots of places to go for help11:09
jelkneri can always ask mattva0111:09
ubuntouristThe rest, I've done before, though it was a long time ago.11:09
jelknerwho runs email servers that send millions of emails11:10
jelknerso until next week11:10
jelknerACTION done11:10
ubuntourist'T'would also be good to have someone like mattva01 or someone more current on security practices than I am to review whatever I do.11:11
ubuntouristACTION is done.11:11
GFbotnext item: "Distraction or useful tool? is free for open-source and non-profit teams "11:11
GFbotubuntourist thats on you11:12
jelknerI did some investigation of this when I saw that ubuntourist put it on the agenda11:12
ubuntouristSo. We have our documentation scattered to the four winds.11:12
ubuntouristSince we use git, and because Markdown is an easy format to write decent documentation, and, because the pandoc application can convert between several11:13
ubuntouristdifferent documentation styles, it would seem like a version controlled documentation system like GitBook would be a good choice.11:13
jelknerubuntourist, can i make a proposal?11:14
ubuntouristI also liked the philosophy / background of the team behind it.11:14
ubuntouristjelkner, aye.11:14
jelknerubuntourist, you have been taking the lead on this11:14
jelknerand your arguments in favor of the tech seem really sound to me11:14
jelknerthey have different pricing arrangement on their website11:15
jelknerincluding free for open source projects11:15
ubuntouristThere was also the "Free for teams working on FLOSS projects" angle.11:15
ubuntouristNever mind. ;-)11:15
jelknerit seems like a jelkner task to contact them to let them know who we are and ask if they would let us try it a bit for free11:15
jelknerwe are not technically a non-profit11:16
jelknerbut we are dedicated to software freedom11:16
jelknerwith you all's approval11:16
jelkneri'll be tasked with contacting them11:16
jelkneronly three of us voting members are here11:17
jelknerbut three of five works11:17
jelknerif we are unanimous11:17
ubuntouristjelkner, I don't THINK I saw any specific requirement about being a non-profit to get the gratis account. Just that we're in the libre camp when it comes to software.11:17
GFbotanything else?11:18
jelknerGFbot, do we have your vote?11:18
GFbotubuntourist, jelkner11:18

GFbotand a few things11:22
jelkneryou got first11:22

ubuntouristThe important thing here is for others, at the moment that being mostly SITarabuta, to gather enough history so that I am not the sole point of failure (or success).11:22
