23:11 cjl hallo GeraldA
23:11 walterbender GeraldA: need the backlog?
23:12 GeraldA Yes, please
23:12 sdanielf has quit IRC
23:12 walterbender http://meeting.sugarlabs.org/s[…]etings/2013-01-28
23:13 another new tidbit
23:13 I spoke to the publisher of my book today and I will be able to distribute a pared back version of the Sugar Chapter freely
23:14 GeraldA That's great.
23:14 walterbender they said they would entertain a Spanish and French translation too
23:14 final news tidbit: Raul, Bernie and I will be having a mini Sugar Camp next weekend.
23:15 in SF
23:15 cjl walterbender: What are you focusing on?
23:15 walterbender I think we'll look at Python 3 and Journal integration into the cloud
23:16 cjb has quit IRC
23:16 walterbender we'll be on #sugar during the camp.... so others can join us.
23:17 Did anyone have any specific topics for today?
23:17 sdanielf <sdanielf!~danielf@r186-49-34-240.dialup.adsl.anteldata.net.uy> has joined #sugar-meeting
23:17 JT4sugar walterbender, Could you also begin discussions on how assessment might also be addressed or structured in the cloud initiatives
23:18 sdanielf sorry, connection error
23:18 walterbender JT4sugar: we could...  I want to get over the initial hurdle of sharing projects and then we can figure out how we might add a layer on top of that
23:18 sdanielf: http://meeting.sugarlabs.org/s[…]etings/2013-01-28
23:18 JT4sugar walterbender, Sounds good
23:19 walterbender Sean would like to arrange a meeting to discuss PR, but this time is a little late for him.
23:20 I will let him schedule something and hopefully most of us can attend
23:20 there is some real movement on HTML5 and Javascript support...
23:21 gonzalo__ walterbender, about the request of info about PythonJoven, I sent a mail to Flavio Danesse, but he was on vacation, replied he will send a report when he is back
23:21 walterbender gonzalo__: great.
23:21 I was hoping for some photos too, for the PR event...
23:22 gonzalo__ maybe sdanielf have photos? or we can use photos shared in gooogle+
23:23 walterbender I was looking at some of the photos that Flavio has shared... some good ones
23:23 sdanielf All photos I have were shared by Flavio. Ask him to redistribute them if necessary will be best.
23:24 walterbender sdanielf: I want to have that conversation about how to get some teachers to lead the way to more and better use of Sugar in the classroom in .UY
23:24 ClaudiaU has some ideas on that too
23:25 maybe when Flavio is back, we can schedule a chat? (in Spanish)
23:25 ClaudiaU sounds good
23:25 gonzalo__ walterbender, about pr, maybe we can request a photo to every participant in GSoC and make some collage?
23:25 sdanielf sure, he can join #sugar-meeting-es
23:26 cjb <cjb!~cjb@2001:4830:1171:0:89e1:1697:6b49:d078> has joined #sugar-meeting
23:26 walterbender gonzalo__: we could try... cjl: do we have their emails?
23:26 cjl walterbender: I think we may have them onmelange, but being underage is a bit of an issue
23:27 walterbender yeah... right
23:27 gonzalo__ cjl, i is a gently request.....
23:27 cjl Theoretically they cannot consent ot a photographer's release\
23:28 gonzalo__ at times forget we lives in a paranoid world
23:28 cjl *sigh*
23:30 walterbender any other topics for today?
23:30 CanoeBerry just a mention of Feb 22-24 in LA: http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale11x
23:30 gonzalo__ i have a question, should we do some planning about community events? may be open to receive  proposals?
23:31 CanoeBerry where Caryl and likely George Hunt should be presenting Sugar * School Server on Rasperri Pi etc
23:32 walterbender we could be more organized about it
23:32 sdanielf walterbender: +1
23:33 walterbender also to take more advantage of the various conferences... for example, I am presenting at Pycon.... a chance to do some recruiting
23:33 ClaudiaU walterbender: if our paper is accepted we can use it to motivate other people to do similar work
23:33 and we also talk about doing TA international day
23:33 we should think about that
23:34 i think both events will allow sugar to get closer to teachers
23:34 walterbender ClaudiaU: yes... we need to get moving on that so we can solicit some funding
23:34 ClaudiaU: I am at twine tomorrow
23:34 ClaudiaU me too
23:35 gonzalo__ walterbender, we have participated in the Arg version of PyCon the last 3 years, is a great community
23:35 ClaudiaU let's do some planning and we can report to others next week
23:35 walterbender OK
23:37 #action I will ask Sean to schedule the PR meeting... in the meanwhile cjl and I will work with him on the GCI release for next week
23:37 gonzalo__ participate in other events is great, we need continue, but i was thinking in something like eduJam, but maybe with one objective
23:37 walterbender #action gonzalo__ will speak with Flavio about meeting to discuss expanding his influence
23:38 gonzalo__ perfect
23:38 walterbender #action ClaudiaU and I will meet to start planning TA Day
23:38 ClaudiaU sounds good
23:39 walterbender gonzalo__: +1 to a SugarJam event with hackers and teachers
23:39 we need to fund raise for that too
23:40 gonzalo__ walterbender, tincho in (py) want do something
23:40 walterbender yes...
23:41 ClaudiaU SugarJam is broader in scope, but similar purpose.. no?
23:41 the idea is to open to the community... teacher in particular
23:41 i think SugarJam could be great oportunity for teachers to feel that they have a voice
23:41 walterbender I think so... the problem I had with EduJam was convincing them to involve teachers...
23:41 ClaudiaU and they can contribute
23:42 hmmm
23:42 sdanielf walterbender, another problem with EduJAM is that it's not free, people need to pay
23:42 gonzalo__ there are two ideas, both importants, but not easy to put in the same event, one is involve teachers, other is have time to work/plan face to face
23:42 ClaudiaU let's do one... showing results could be a good way to convince others
23:43 sdanielf: and let's try to make it free
23:43 walterbender gonzalo__: I think a Camp is different.... the Jam should be about sharing experiences and opening up new possibilities...
23:43 to try to use it for coding is overloading it
23:44 we recently made that mistake in SF
23:44 gonzalo__ walterbender, yes, planning/discuss ideas is more important than coding in events
23:45 JT4sugar Should think of building it around teachers and look to provide developers scholarships to attend and listen to figure out how they can Code for teachers needs. Fundraise for teacher and developer scholarships and do PR for it.
23:45 walterbender JT4sugar: +1
23:45 GeraldA JT4Sugar +1
23:47 ClaudiaU +1
23:47 walterbender so we need a subcommittee to do the planning
23:47 and report back...
23:47 any volunteers?
23:47 GeraldA Yes
23:48 gonzalo__ if is in the south, i can help
23:48 walterbender once we have a description, we can seek some funding
23:48 gonzalo__: maybe we meet in the middle (.NI)?
23:48 GeraldA Where would we have it?
23:48 ClaudiaU .NI sounds good
23:49 gonzalo__ walterbender, can be a good idea
23:49 walterbender let's figure out what it is and then we can find a venue
23:49 I think there are a few potential funders for such things
23:50 (how about Goa?)
23:50 in India
23:50 GeraldA nice
23:50 gonzalo__ should be nice
23:50 walterbender well, if you guys can put together a prospectus, I'll help shop it around
23:51 ClaudiaU I am happy to help
23:51 JT4sugar I can work with Gerald to help put something together
23:51 GeraldA That's great.
23:51 walterbender is reminded, we need to work on the website too... will speak with Bernie on the weekend.
23:52 #action GeraldA will lead a team to put together a prospectus for a SugarJam
23:52 needs to sign off soon today... grandfather duty
23:53 gonzalo__ :)
23:53 ClaudiaU :)
23:53 walterbender we have a lot queued up
23:53 GeraldA :)
23:53 ClaudiaU yes
23:53 walterbender ClaudiaU: I'll find you at twine tomorrow
23:53 JT4sugar walterbender, If you can get update from Bernie how GCI Website work will fit into infrastructure and steps needed going forward then we can hatch plan with Sean and others to move forward
23:53 sdanielf :) walterbender, Is there time to tell a last idea?
23:53 ClaudiaU yes! See you tomorrow
23:54 walterbender sdanielf: yes... please
23:54 JT4sugar: I'll report back this weekend
23:54 sdanielf Events help to involve teachers, but they would be needing updated documentation
23:54 JT4sugar walterbender, Great
23:55 walterbender sdanielf: are you thinking of a doc sprint?
23:55 sdanielf maybe, we are near to release Sugar 1 and some docs are of Sugar 0.86
23:56 walterbender sdanielf: I was hoping we'd get some videos from GCI
23:56 sdanielf: we did get an update of Sdenka's book to Sugar 0.98...
23:56 sdanielf: but I agree...
23:56 gonzalo__ i was trying to involve people in update the help without success
23:57 sdanielf I think we are needing to re-involve the documentation team
23:57 cjl What happened wit hthe work CanoeBerry did on the Sugar book?
23:58 walterbender sdanielf: we need to recruit a new team, I think...
23:58 CanoeBerry: ???
23:58 cjl Not sure if it evere landed on FLOSSManuals or not
23:58 CanoeBerry Julia Reynolds had taken it, Christoph D followed the results better than I.
23:58 walterbender I cannot ever get FLOSS manuals to update so I have mostly given up on that route
23:59 gonzalo__ ClaudiaU, do you know somthing about Julia?
23:59 walterbender CanoeBerry: can you do some investigation into status? where the resources are kept?
