13:01 < quaid> <meeting>
13:01 -!- quaid changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: FDSCo meeting - greetings and role call
13:02 < quaid> well, I'm here
13:02 * EvilBob Bobjensen
13:04 < EvilBob> Do we have an agenda?
13:04 < quaid> well, sort of
13:04 < quaid> we have what we had last week
13:04 < quaid> I was lookig on list for anything new, and there isn't
13:04 < quaid> I think we'll have a quick meeting :)
13:04 < EvilBob> OK
13:05 < quaid> ok, so ...
13:05 -!- quaid changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: FDSCo - one summary
13:05 * couf here
13:05 < EvilBob> I have an update for the install guide also
13:05 < quaid> so, renamed SingleSummary
13:05 < quaid> and work still needs to happen to figure out what belongs where
13:06 < quaid> JonRob is doing a good job with it
13:06 < quaid> anything else on that?
13:06 -!- quaid changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: FDSCo - content status update
13:06 < couf> one small thing
13:06 < quaid> couf: go ahead
13:06 < couf> is this Docs-owned or Marketing?
13:07 -!- stickster is now known as stickster_afk
13:07 < quaid> ~yes
13:07 < EvilBob> LOL
13:07 < quaid> couf: I think we need to both own the content, and wrangle it together
13:07 * couf not 100% up2date on that
13:07 < couf> right
13:08 < quaid> we'll get it figured out soon, I reckon, and on list
13:08 < quaid> EvilBob: go head with IG
13:08 < EvilBob> this is different than the one sheet release note, correct?
13:08 < quaid> yes
13:08 < quaid> but
13:08 < EvilBob> K
13:09 < quaid> we can pull from the SingleSummary to populate the top parts of the one-sheet, conceivably
13:09 < quaid> (if useful, etc.)
13:09 < quaid> EvilBob: IG?
13:10 < EvilBob> I am meeting with Paul on thursday evening, going to get going on the IG, I have recruited two helpers that do a majority of the installs in the fedora unity re-spin testing process
13:10 < EvilBob> So I will maybe need some CVS and docbook help in the comign weeks
13:10 < quaid> are you and Paul going to consider additions/enhancements to the IG? other than whatever changes come from anaconda
13:10 < EvilBob> coming
13:10 < EvilBob> quaid: exacty
13:11 < EvilBob> quaid: there are some areas that need more info to flesh the doc out
13:11 < quaid> do you know yet what F9 release or date we are targetting the IG beta for?
13:11 < couf> superb
13:11 < quaid> or is that after THur?
13:12 < EvilBob> after thursday
13:12 < EvilBob> I have not had a chance to look at that yet
13:12 < quaid> ok; can you make sure poelcat sees that info? presumably emailing the list should do it
13:12 < EvilBob> Yup
13:13 < quaid> ok; other IG stuffs?
13:13 < EvilBob> nope
13:14 -!- chased [n=themis(a)athedsl-341053.home.otenet.gr] has joined #fedora-meeting
13:14 < quaid> ok
13:14 < quaid> relnotes one-sheet for Fedora 9 Alpha
13:14 < quaid> went out today
13:15 < quaid> kudos to mether and jonrob for teaming up to get that one together; I had a few edits this morning
13:15 < couf> ++
13:15 < quaid> although the wiki is having problems over the last few hours, it sounds as if it is not because of overt hammering of that page
13:15 < quaid> however, we need to include a ~12 hour ahead step next time to convert to a static page and link everywhere to there
13:16 < quaid> else?
13:16 < poelcat> what do I need to see?
13:16 < EvilBob> poelcat: our schedule for the install guide
13:17 < couf> DUG and AG are quite silent atm, but trying to get up to speed with everything right now
13:17 < EvilBob> poelcat: I will email you once I have a chance to look at the calendar
13:17 < poelcat> EvilBob: gotcha
13:17 < couf> got some more time on hands now, so it could be ready pretty quick
13:20 < EvilBob> next?
13:20 < quaid> couf: sorry if I got lost in this; are many of the wiki pages ready for "final before conversion" edits?
13:20 < quaid> As for the Software Management Guide (SMG):
13:20 < quaid> 1. Sparks has asked for input on list; gotten any from anywhere?
13:21 < quaid> 2. I was looking at how to change the bugzilla component but haven't gotten it figured yet
13:22 * quaid looks at that #2 whilst 1 is discussed
13:22 < couf> quaid: from what I've seen, it still needs some work, but it's almost at that point
13:22 < couf> some pages are pre-conv edit ready
13:22 < quaid> and are marked, right?
13:22 < couf> yep
13:23 < quaid> we can put out some pressure to edit; I'd like more people watching so e.g. Paul and I are passing along skills and tips
13:23 < couf> I'll send a list to the list
13:23 < quaid> cool
13:23 < quaid> that's a good idea; we can divide and conquer a bit more that way
13:24 < couf> yep
13:25 < quaid> ok, I'll work on the smg bz component separately
13:25 < quaid> it does bring up one point, we could use more makefile, scripting, tooling, and CVS admin expertise
13:25 < quaid> ok, and Crypto Guide ...
13:26 < quaid> Sparks: did you update that one for the new Anaconda features?
13:28 < quaid> ok ...
13:28 < quaid> we'll get updates on list for those
13:28 -!- quaid changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: FDSCo -- AOB
13:29 < quaid> I don't think we can chat about meeting times, and we have to plead "transition time" for not being able to handle the FDSCo chair elections
13:29 < EvilBob> Leadership
13:29 < quaid> (also, a lack of enough people)
13:29 < quaid> yeah, that stuff
13:29 < EvilBob> yup
13:29 < couf> we really need to get that sorted out
13:30 < EvilBob> OK next week new time or same time?
13:30 < couf> I know this time really isn't good for jmbuser, the rest is fine iirc
13:30 < EvilBob> do we want to take the meeting time issue to the list and decide there?
13:30 -!- vnk_fd [n=v-n-k(a)60-234-169-11.bitstream.orcon.net.nz] has joined #fedora-meeting
13:31 < quaid> couf: problem is ... we don'
13:31 < quaid> t know what time is good for jmbuser
13:32 * EvilBob avoids saying "send the question to the list as spam so he will see it"
13:32 < couf> right, so we should get him to fill in the table, he's back in middle east right?
13:32 < couf> EvilBob: don't get me started
13:32 < EvilBob> I am so Evil...
13:33 -!- loupgaroublond [n=yankee(a)pool-71-182-187-11.pitbpa.east.verizon.net] has joined #fedora-meeting
13:34 < quaid> but so far I don't see a time that is good for everyone
13:34 < quaid> maybe stickster_afk can redo his part now
13:35 < couf> so can we settle this by next week on-list?
13:36 -!- loupgaroublond [n=yankee(a)pool-71-182-187-11.pitbpa.east.verizon.net] has quit [Client Quit]

13:38 < EvilBob> I think so
13:41 -!- tibbs [n=tibbs@fedora/tibbs] has quit ["Konversation terminated!"]
13:41 < EvilBob> </meeting>?
13:41 < couf> +1
I'm in orientation this week and not sure what my schedule is going to
be like at meeting time tomorrow. I'm *REALLY* sorry if I miss again
(second week in a row!) and beg your forgiveness. :-) Rest assured my
schedule will be much more compatible with whatever we want to do

I think it is very important that this section be translated into other
I will talk with a friend who has a better English to translate the Spanish
When I get the translated text will posted here.
Fedora Infrastructure Team:
For the past several weeks, the Fedora Docs list has been hit hard (at
least 500+) with spam e-mails. They get rejected, but, I, as an owner
of the list, am getting flooded with these rejected notices, making my
I also notice an increase in unsubscribe notices, which may be unrelated.
Can you please check this out and let me know if there is anything
that can be done to tighten up the filters?
I know there are at least 3 other list owners of Fedora-Docs-list who
are being affected.
Member, Fedora Docs Steering Committee (FDSCo)
I am wondering where can I find official howtos for Fedora? if there
are no official howtos are there any good other online resources?
