Let me add a few more:
Did you transcribe a session?
Was the documentation clear what you were supposed to do?
Did you feel like there was alot of interaction on the IRC channel?
Did you take any questions from IRC?
If so, how many?
Did you volunteer to transcribe a session?
Did the session leader openly ask for a transcriber?
How many people in your session volunteered to transcribe.
Is English your native tongue?

I've been trying to sort of trudge through and implement some of the workflow objects, and I've run into a couple of errors within the Pagemaster module.
After creating a Pub Type while proceeding to create a Pub Field, one is presented with several PHP warnings along this line:
Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated - argument passed by value; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of [runtime function name](). If you would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set allow_call_time_pass_reference to true in your INI file. However, future versions may not support this any longer. in /usr/share/zikula/modules/pagemaster/classes/FormPlugins/pmformlistinput.class.php on line 71
Those are not a hindrance. However, after creating a Pub Type called "Beats" with a Fieldtype of "List" there is a blocker. You can see the result here or in the screenshot on my scratch page above.
The form snippet for editing the list is drawn off to the left of the screen.
This may be due to the following error which is triggered when clicking the "Pubtype form" link in the toolbar.
The download link leads to here, but there is no "livepipe". Only Pagemaster releases from 1 year ago.

The virt beat is probably about as done as I may find time to make it today. However, I added a snippet on an upcoming Red Hat event, 'red hat virtual experience'. So Hendrixee...
Is this "advertisement" acceptable to everyone? It seems relevant to the readers.
If so, and if anyone would like to spruce up the copy I summarized from the event page, feel free. Or send suggestions.
From now through 6:00 pm (01:00 UTC) today, we'll be working on Fedora
Insight on Zikula here at FUDCon Toronto, and you can join us online at
irc.freenode.net in #fudcon-room-4
There are three basic categories of work, including:
1) Infrastructure (lead: Simon Birwhistle)
* packaging remaining items (xinhua, etc.)
* installing PageMaster add-on for Zikula for workflow engine
* resolving other issues
2) Workflow (lead: Pascal Calarco)
* documenting how roles are handled in Zikula and in FAS
* documenting revised workflow for Fedora Weekly News in Zikula
3) Content (lead: Mel Chua)
* what content categories will be targeted for inclusion in Fedora Insight
* plan for translation
* handling multimedia hosting
Come join us online! We'll also be working on this tomorrow, Monday,
December 7th through the same time.
If you're joining us online, look in #fedora-mktg for pcalarco (Pascal),
itbegins (Simon) or mchua (myself) and we'll get you started.
If you're joining us in person, head to room 4 in the SEQ building -
we'll be there all day.
Today's goal: get Fedora Insight up on staging and migrate FWN's
workflow to it. Hoo-yah!
Our gameplan for the next two days: everything is at
Please ask questions, point out holes, etc. - we literally *just* came
up with this. This is also where you can sign up to help.
I think that Sparks and ke4qqq were planning on spending some time with
us, which would be *awesome* - and that mmcgrath will be dropping by at
the end of both days to check in - but I'm not sure what people's plans
actually are, so I just took a guess for me/Simon/Pascal to start.
(Simon, Pascal, feel free to edit this to something more correct and/or
I defaulted to #fedora-mktg as our IRC channel for the day, because I
know we're going to have remote participants, but would be glad to move
it to a more neutral place if there's a better location for this (if
#fedora-logistics were populated, I'd do it there).
Comments? Thoughts? Halp? Yay! We'll keep you updated.
Simon Birtwistle's talk, just completed, on zikula - a CMS that's going
to be used by Docs and Marketing and News (in various ways for each). It
was awesomeness, and the crowd was fun.
Max and I had this transcribing-tag-team-thing going on here, so the
full logs are pretty complete (WOO! LOGS!) - we ended with a game plan
for the hackfest on Sunday and Monday, which I'll post shortly.
