jelknerreal short16:01
jelkneri got an email this morning from the vice president saying she couldn't login16:02
jelknerwe don't want to resolve that during the meeting, but right after i'd like to work on that16:02
jelknerbig idea is that we need to engage members with using the site16:02

jelknerthat would be a great feature16:05
jelknerfor LO16:05
jelknerjust wanted to discuss it16:05
jelknerACTION done16:05
ubuntouristWe should play with the existing one to get a sense of how it works (those who've never used it.) I've used it.16:06
ubuntouristACTION is done16:06

ubuntouristI'm continuing (sporadically) to investigate both CalDAV (a calendar enhancement) and to relearning PostScript (a print layout system).16:09
jelknerso it would be a big outreach opportunity for us16:10
jelknerACTION done16:10
SITarabutawell, Gallaudet is a thing this friday. (also my AP exam is thing, but that is not NWD related).16:10
jelkneroh yeah!16:10

ubuntouristAnd of course, as SITarabuta mentioned, Gallaudet.16:10
jelknerzOnny, GFbot?16:11
ubuntouristI WAS hoping that all the participants could speak, but that seems to be not the way Gallaudet (Susan) wants to run that.16:11
ubuntouristStill I hope developers can participate in muted fashion.16:11
ubuntouristACTION is done.16:11
zOnnythe most common rutine will be work on the assigned Issues16:12
zOnnyACTION done16:12
GFbotsame as zOnny16:13

jelknernot low level, but high level16:13
jelknerGFbot, i know you are working on Celinza Benitez16:13
jelknerthat's important for all of us to know16:14
GFbotyes, thats going to be for this weekz16:14
jelknersince we need to keep in mind which sites are being converted to LO16:14
jelknerand which ones remain16:14
jelknerso that level of detail helps us all understand16:14
nrcernaAs I mentioned earlier I worked on the design, and today GFbot is going to start to coding 16:15
nrcernaWe need to have that ready this week16:16
nrcernameaning the desing and migrate it to LO16:16

ubuntouristAA? Who?16:17
jelknerzOnny and lbolz did a site16:17
jelknerthey owe us16:17
jelknerand we haven't collected16:17
jelkneri was waiting until we could get the data into our tracking system16:17
jelkneri think SITarabuta has that ready now16:17
jelknerwe should work on that today16:18
SITarabutajelkner, you are stealing my item ;)16:18
jelknersorry, SITarabuta 16:18
jelknerACTION done16:18
SITarabutaACTION done? I guess?16:18
nrcernathe next item: -Whoogle Search, IRC Server - Self-hosting our core services (SITarabuta)16:19
SITarabutalet's switch my items around16:19
SITarabutaplease nrcerna16:19
ubuntourist(For those who are interested.)16:19
nrcernado you want to continue with the Business tracker item? SITarabuta 16:20
SITarabutaOk so let's see what we have here16:20
SITarabutaBusiness Tracker has tracking hours and PDF generation that magically works16:20
SITarabutaI will get into the details after the meeting16:20
SITarabutaBecause it is really interesting, and a teeny tiny bit messy.16:21
SITarabutaSo technically, everyone should have an account16:21
SITarabutaIn order to add items to an invoice.16:21
jelknerSITarabuta, can we meet at 1:30 pm on planning?16:21
SITarabutaACTION done, for now16:21
nrcernaYes, SITarabuta 16:22
nrcernaThank you.16:22
nrcernaPlease continue with the next and last item16:22
SITarabutaSo Whoogle search. Little flask app to degoogle-ify. I think it is worth a try. It can run anywhere16:23
SITarabutaThat can fit on our existing NOVA Web Dev linode.16:23
SITarabutaIf people are interested.16:23
jelknerbut of course we are ;-)16:23
SITarabutashould we host our own IRC server at
ubuntouristSITarabuta, where does it accumulate (or pull) data from?16:24
SITarabutaThat would be nice..16:24
SITarabutaIt does it from Google ubuntourist, but it takes every tracker out, takes AMP out, in favor of classic websites, and removes ads16:24
jelknerSITarabuta, de-google-ifing is a total plus16:24
SITarabutaSo it is the power of google search without google16:24
jelknerfreenode is free software and has a loooong tradition serving our community16:24
ubuntouristI've also thought about IRC. More self-hosting means lots of new and interesting integration possibilities.16:24
jelknernot sure why we would want to go away from that16:25
SITarabutaWell, because of what ubuntourist said ;)16:25
SITarabutaright above16:25
jelknerdownside is the cost in time and effort16:25
SITarabutaCorrect, we can talk later16:25
jelknerso the question is whether it is worth the tradeoff16:25
jelknersure, SITarabuta 16:25
jelknerjust trying to frame the discussion16:26
SITarabutaanother thing that I want to add16:26
SITarabutait is getting a bit overwhelming 16:26
SITarabutahow we have to many separate logins16:26
jelknersingle sign on16:26
SITarabutatracker, libreorganize, mail, tracker, heck, even IRC16:26
jelknerthe holy grail!16:26
ubuntouristMaybe I should go back to trying to focus on LDAP then.16:26
jelknernow that's worth exploring16:26
jelknermattva01 could help16:26
SITarabutaYep. So that is worth considering as well.16:27
ubuntourist(That was why I was first looking at LDAP. So many logins, so little time. ;-) )16:27
SITarabutaACTION done16:27
nrcernaThank you SITarabuta 16:27
jelkneroh yes, please check-in16:28
nrcernaDoes anyone has anything to add?16:28
GFbotwhat is going to happen with AEA?16:29
ubuntouristNothing from Brain-Washington, Disenfranchised City... ;-)16:29
jelknerlet's talk after, GFbot 16:29
jelknerone minute left16:29
nrcernaI think we are done16:30
