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 
logging meetings
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  ---
