Aug 10 18:55:24 <lonetwin> mether: as far as the CHIP article is concerned, I

is almost complete at this point.

Aug 10 19:05:44 <abby87> yeah :)
Aug 10 19:06:05 <kushal> We are also going to start Fedora new podcasts
Aug 10 19:06:21 <kushal> * news
Aug 10 19:06:21 <generalBordeaux> kushal, did you checkout ipython ?
Aug 10 19:06:48 <kushal> generalBordeaux, ipython why ? though used it long
Aug 10 19:07:06 <abby87> kushal: So can anyone contribute desktop videos as
Aug 10 19:07:07 <kushal> where we are going to mention key points happened in
Aug 10 19:07:14 <mether> franciscod: if you have the chat logs for the
packaging walk through sessions, can you post them to the list?
Aug 10 19:07:26 <kushal> abby87, yes, see the Fedora TV on fedorahosted
Aug 10 19:07:32 <franciscod> mether, okay..
Aug 10 19:07:45 <kushal> we will also cover other linux news in the podcast
Aug 10 19:07:47 <franciscod> mether, all of them?
Aug 10 19:07:55 <generalBordeaux> kushal, after watching your podcast on tab
completion .. i posted that in #yum and James Antill suggested me to use
ipython ... it has a lot of extra features ...
Aug 10 19:08:00 <abby87> kushal: ok
Aug 10 19:08:05 <mether> franciscod: yes or post them over to the wiki and
drop me a link
Aug 10 19:08:12 <franciscod> mether, okay.
Aug 10 19:08:51 <kushal> generalBordeaux, yes, but it is not actual cpython :)
Aug 10 19:09:13 <kushal> generalBordeaux, I love to point newbies to cpython
Aug 10 19:09:22 <kushal> later they can use whatever they want :)
Aug 10 19:10:44 <generalBordeaux> kushal, sounds good for noobs ...
Aug 10 19:10:49 <mether> one question for everyone: should we move the
meetings over to #fedora-india
Aug 10 19:11:00 <mether> ugh
Aug 10 19:11:03 <mether> #fedora-meeting channel
Aug 10 19:11:18 <kushal> I feel this room more comfortable
Aug 10 19:11:34 <generalBordeaux> +1 for #fedora-india
Aug 10 19:11:34 <mether>
Aug 10 19:11:46 <abby87> this one is good but a separate channel for meetings
wud be better
Aug 10 19:12:02 <generalBordeaux> mether, unless you have specific plans
Aug 10 19:12:19 <abby87> +1 for #fedora-meeting
Aug 10 19:12:31 <mether> the general idea for fedora meeting channel is that
everyone can just auto-login to the channel and participate when they want to
Aug 10 19:12:54 <mether> The only requirement is that we dont conflict with a
existing meeting on timings and we use the above wiki page to coordinate on
Aug 10 19:13:26 <mether> I think are also running a bot on the channel for
Aug 10 19:13:59 <mether> its not a big deal. Just a thought
Aug 10 19:14:44 <mether> I will post to the list and we can discuss this over
there. I will end the meeting now unless anybody else had additional comments
Aug 10 19:15:17 <mj0vy> mether, do we need to move to #fedora-meeting now?
Aug 10 19:15:29 <mether> nope. we havent decided yet
Aug 10 19:15:43 <abby87> do a vote
Aug 10 19:15:59 <mether> in the list, yes
Aug 10 19:16:07 <abby87> put up a poll on fedora wiki ...
Aug 10 19:16:15 <mj0vy> it it gets a wider audience, i think we can mve!
Aug 10 19:16:18 <mether> wiki doesnt have polling features
Aug 10 19:16:23 <abby87> so that ppl can decide and vote at their own
Aug 10 19:16:28 <abby87> ohh
Aug 10 19:16:41 <mether> I will post to the list and everyone can reply. That
would be all
Aug 10 19:16:48 <kushal> mj0vy, do we require wider than India for India
meetings (just a question)
Aug 10 19:17:43 <mether> --- END MEETING ---
