18:06:50 * rbergeron waves at spevack
18:07:00 <spevack> looks like it will be a lonely meeting for me today.
18:07:02 <spevack> hi rbergeron
18:07:52 <spevack> hi susmit
18:08:05 <susmit> hi spevack
18:08:20 <susmit> anyone else present?
18:08:24 <spevack> just us
18:08:27 <spevack> are you in colorado now?
18:08:59 <susmit> spevack, yes
18:09:14 <susmit> for last one and a half months :)
18:09:18 <spevack> how are you enjoying it?
18:09:19 * ke4qqq is here
18:09:24 <ke4qqq> sorry for my lateness
18:09:31 <spevack> hey david
18:09:40 <ke4qqq> hi Max, hi Susmit
18:09:53 <ke4qqq> so the US contingent is present :)
18:09:55 <susmit> spevack, so far, it has been very nice. I like the weather, people and my Dept.
18:10:00 <susmit> hi ke4qqq
18:10:37 <spevack> As I said in my email, I thought that what I would suggest for this hour is that we work through open tickets, and see how many we can close, regardless of who owns them.
18:10:45 <spevack> that seems like a useful famsco activity for us to do
18:10:55 <ke4qqq> worksforme - esp since we don't have a quorum
18:11:23 <susmit> worksforme too
18:11:44 <spevack> here's the URL
18:11:47 <spevack> #link https://fedorahosted.org/famsco/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&group=owner&order=priority
18:11:54 * spevack gets to work
18:15:00 <susmit> spevack, ke4qqq we also need to work on ambassadors schedule.
18:15:01 <susmit> http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-14/f-14-ambassadors-tasks.html
18:15:08 <spevack> susmit: https://fedorahosted.org/famsco/ticket/78
18:15:27 <spevack> looks like this one is still waiting on receipts, so there is nothing to do there.
18:15:31 <susmit> spevack, the event is not held yet.
18:15:41 <spevack> yep
18:15:56 <susmit> there is nothing
18:18:51 <spevack> My goal is to make sure that none of the tickets assigned to me are blocking on me
18:19:37 <ke4qqq> are we doing anything for release events this cycle?
18:19:55 <ke4qqq> wow - we have a ton of things that are way behind on schedule
18:22:16 <susmit> I am just sending out the mail
18:22:19 <susmit> for release event
18:22:39 <ke4qqq> cool - I'll see what I need to do with design on artwork
18:22:41 <susmit> do you think it will be a good idea to make the deadline date 15th Oct?
18:22:53 <susmit> for submission of release events
18:22:58 <ke4qqq> that worksforme
18:23:11 <susmit> spevack, ?
18:25:20 <spevack> *nod*
18:25:25 * spevack was updating tickets
18:26:22 <ke4qqq> susmit: if you haven't sent your email yet
18:26:36 <susmit> ke4qqq, I have not
18:26:43 <ke4qqq> can you add a section in there that says if they need posters/artwork to ping design ASAP
18:26:55 <ke4qqq> (with a ticket and a mailing list post
18:26:56 <ke4qqq> )
18:27:34 <susmit> ok
18:28:43 <rbergeron> was regional irc sessions something we discussed at fadna as the "marketing tells ambassadors what is awesome in f14" ?
18:30:29 <inode0> once or twice a release having a joint marketing/ambassador meeting is a good idea IMO
18:30:40 <rbergeron> yes
18:30:54 * ke4qqq thought it was easier when -mktg was required
18:31:18 <rbergeron> just trying to think what our goal was there - how it should be structured and who is responsible for delivering content
18:31:35 <rbergeron> praying its not me :)
18:31:40 <inode0> if it is just delivering content an email might hit more people
18:31:48 <tatica> Sry im late
18:31:54 <ke4qqq> hi tatica
18:32:01 <ke4qqq> we are working through tickets in famsco trac
18:32:01 <tatica> :)
18:32:08 <ke4qqq> and also the release schedule
18:32:32 <tatica> Yes, i Read the mail
18:33:30 <tatica> Im a little Solórzano today, i will try to catch up as much as i can
18:33:41 <tatica> *Slow
18:36:12 * spevack is working on https://fedorahosted.org/famsco/ticket/70
18:36:23 <spevack> which is to update the customs page
18:37:38 * ke4qqq wonders if we need to declare a different license - the page says - DO NOT modify - and just below that it's Content is available under Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported. :)
18:39:16 <susmit> ke4qqq, if someone changes a legal doc, I cannot guess the implications
18:40:05 <ke4qqq> yes - hence my point. we should perhaps consider -ND there or perhaps no license at all and let standard copyright apply.
18:40:30 <ke4qqq> anyway - moot point - it's being rewritten, so the existing one is well nigh deprecated
18:40:52 <susmit> spevack, do you think this letter can be a bit more professionally done? using publican or latex?
18:41:03 <spevack> susmit: it needs to be re-written, that's for sure.
18:41:08 <spevack> It says the software is in the public domain
18:41:37 <spevack> I think a new letter needs to be drafted and signed by the same person, Dennis, who is still at Red Hat.
18:41:47 <spevack> He is in the Raleigh office, so I should be able to get his signature easily
18:41:58 <susmit> ok
18:50:25 <susmit> spevack, a few weeks ago, we talked about writing down the budget reimbursement process, do you think that is doable?
18:50:51 <ke4qqq> hmmm isn't that already done - or have I missed something
18:51:07 <spevack> susmit: do you mean updating https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Reimbursements
18:52:03 <susmit> ke4qqq, spevack, no. I mean we talked about defining time limit for every step, so that we can make the process faster.
18:52:50 <ke4qqq> susmit: strikes me as arbitrary and goal at this point rather than process. We have a constraint we need to fix first IMO
18:53:21 <susmit> ke4qqq, what's that?
18:54:22 <ke4qqq> we have one person doing all of the work - he's severely time and attention limited.
18:54:44 <ke4qqq> on the upside he has several plans to make himself less prone to being eaten by a raptor
18:55:49 <susmit> that's right, spevack what happened to regional credit cards?
18:56:01 <ke4qqq> telling that one person that he has to do it sooner doesn't solve the problem imo
18:56:14 <susmit> we have been discussing about that for long...is that at all doable?
18:56:43 <ke4qqq> susmit: yes, based on conversations - it's just a needs spare cycles from spevack or someone else in RHT to get it done
18:57:02 <susmit> ok.
18:58:03 * spevack has finished re-writing the customs letter, and sent it to the appropriate person for +1 and signature
18:58:24 <susmit> spevack, nice
18:58:45 <ke4qqq> cool - spevack if you don't mind - read up and make sure I am not misrepresenting the situation
19:00:37 <spevack> ke4qqq: nope, you're right on.  I promised stickster I'd try to make those credit cards get finalized ASAP.  The fact that mine was compromised recently makes that issue pretty important
19:02:03 <susmit> spevack, oops
19:02:25 <ke4qqq> speaking of, did you get the UPS stuff moved to $newcard?
19:03:02 <spevack> ke4qqq: not yet.  hopefully today.  I'm waiting for them to come repossess your car or something :)
19:03:46 <ke4qqq> :) yes wait til drastic action then respond :)
19:04:00 <susmit> I am not sure if it is a norm here, but back at $home, every CC must have an password. And that password must be used for all web transactions.
19:04:16 <susmit> s/an password/a password
19:05:06 <susmit> that does not protect from theft anyway :)
19:05:31 <susmit> Let's hope the CC issue can be sorted out.
19:06:57 <susmit> spevack ke4qqq is there anything else we need to work on today? Or we can just close the meeting for today?
19:07:06 <spevack> so, it looks like there are three tickets left for me to go through.
19:07:16 <spevack> #action spevack tickets 80, 83, and 89
19:07:21 <spevack> #action spevack UPS mess sorted out
19:07:44 <spevack> I think we can close the meeting.  That was actually a pretty useful hour for me.  going through tickets that otherwise would not have been looked at this week.
