Re: Meeting Minutes and Log - GNOME.Asia IRC meeting 2 Nov 2010

Pockey, are you and Fred will be in Boston ?


2010/11/4 Pockey Lam <pockey softwarefreedomday org>
Thanks Akhil for the detailed meeting minutes.

Dear ALL,

As a lot of our committee members will be in the Boston Summit this week. Let's rest one week and resume our weekly meeting on 16th November, Tuesday.

Besides, since we are deciding the venue of host end of November, on top of looking at the results of the survey, it maybe a good idea if each host (e.g. Pockey for HK, Bharath/ Akhil for India and Utian / Wers for Indonesia) prepare a proposal of its city and submit to the mailing list before 26th November for consideration. So we can decide the location according to the proposal, what do you think?

    <wers>  I think last week fo April is safe
    <wers>  start of May if we want to be super sure
    <yippi>  i think during the release sounds best
    <yippi>  i think the last week of april, or perhaps the last 4-5 days of april and the first 1-2 days of May
    <yippi>  since the GNOME 3 release is scheduled for April 27th

4. User experience feedbacks on GNOME Desktop

5. Update on the proposal of website
     <yippi Logos are missing in gnomeasia site
     <terral1> So basically late last week I sent out an email to some of the designers that I have contract work done with, asking for design concepts for the website update. Just to see what they would come up with. If we like any of     the  designs that get submitted, I will have them build out some more interior pages
     <terral1> I expect 3 to 5 submissions
      <wers>  GNOME.Asia 2010 pics all I got

   Discussion about color change in website but no conclusion.
