23:25 walterbender hello everyone
23:25 Claudia_ :_
23:25 hello
23:25 walterbender glad you can join us
23:25 satellit_e I am on list  thanks
23:26 CanoeBerry Recap: http://lists.sugarlabs.org/arc[…]ember/017628.html
23:26 walterbender a few things we need to discuss
23:26 #topic slobs election
23:26 meeting <Jose_Miguel-es> Hello!
23:27 walterbender there was an email sent out two days ago. I am worried that it ended up in people's SPAM folders. Others are not reporting having received it at all
23:27 CanoeBerry I received it, but in my spambox.
23:27 walterbender (2 in SPAM, 2 not received, 0 received) in my unscientific poll
23:27 not looking good
23:28 Claudia_ i did not see it
23:28 walterbender I am happy that the membership committee has formulated a plan and tried to contact people.
23:28 satellit_e neither did I but I just got added to list
23:28 walterbender I'll try to get the word out through Sugar Digest, which seems to get through SPAM filters more reliably by all reports.
23:28 CanoeBerry satellit_e: what was the issue, keeping you from joining?
23:29 satellit_e never got a survey  so on old 2009 member list but not on survey list
23:30 walterbender satellit_e, I suspect it was some sort of database glitch
23:30 satellit_e k
23:30 walterbender please contact samson directly
23:30 I'm fine with the schedule: Jan. 17-23
23:30 CanoeBerry Glad it's cleared up.. the solution in general is to <members@sugarlabs.org> is that correct?
23:30 walterbender OK with everyone?
23:30 CanoeBerry Sure
23:31 satellit_e I am on https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/[…]embers/Survey2015  now  but no survey recieved or replied to
23:31 CanoeBerry 1 week election is a bit short (shorter than we've had in the past, for folks completely offline on deployments it could be problematic) but best we move on.
23:32 walterbender CanoeBerry, maybe you can recommend to the committee to extend it.
23:32 Claudia_ some of the countries in latam are probably getting back from vacation
23:32 walterbender I don't see why it would be a problem to run 2 weeks
23:32 CanoeBerry Having a full month notice ahead of Jan 17 means all have plenty of notice, so best to leave good enough alone?
23:32 meeting <Jose_Miguel-es> In the south, all the month is on holiday in education
23:32 CanoeBerry Either way, the world is more online that in times past.
23:32 walterbender seems not everyone has gotten notified :P
23:33 CanoeBerry Te real issue is folks not receiving notices that end up in bitbuckets of one kind or another.
23:33 So plenty of advance notice can begin to heal this serious issue..
23:34 walterbender anyway... there is finally a plan :)
23:34 CanoeBerry +7
23:34 walterbender shall we move on then?
23:34 CanoeBerry Yes
23:34 walterbender #topic GCI
23:34 just to let everyone know... things are going great so far
23:35 record participation
23:35 meeting <Jose_Miguel-es> Excellent!
23:35 walterbender and lots of good working being done
23:35 Claudia_ yes
23:35 walterbender the mentors are really helpful this year
23:35 I don't feel completely under water :P
23:35 Claudia_ nice
23:36 walterbender I am glad we made the effort again this year.
23:36 Claudia_ how many mentors/children?
23:36 walterbender #topic travel
23:36 CanoeBerry Congrats GCI mentors.
23:37 walterbender Just a heads up that I will be spending some more Trip Advisor $ for some Turtle workshops
23:37 Bangkok, in conjunction with the Constructionism Conference
23:38 Devin, who has been helping me with Music Blocks (the music version of Turtle Blocks) will be joining me.
23:38 (Devin has also be amazing in GCI)
23:39 I sent an email about one month ago -- which wasn't in your SPAM folders since many of you replied to some of the other quetions
23:39 Claudia_ I am so happy your papers got accepted at that conference
23:39 walterbender the question that was not answered was about offering Devin a small stipend or honorarium
23:40 he needs to take a week off from work and it is a hardship for him
23:40 I'd like to give him $500 for his time and effort in organizing and running the workshop
23:40 but as this is unprecedented, I want SLOB approval
23:41 thoughts? comments?
23:42 meeting <Jose_Miguel-es> Of agreement.
