June LoCo Council IRC Meeting Update
I’m not sure how many people actually read or are subscribed to the Ubuntu LoCo Contacts mailing list or if information is being passed down to LoCo teams – which it should be !
From now on I’m going to post the minutes and any outcomes from the meeting to my blog here to read and link back to the wiki page in the hopes of spreading the information to more places!
LoCo Council Agenda- 15th June 2010

Outcomes from the Meeting
Re-Approval process, and clarifying the current workflow.
The workflow is as follows. When a team is accepted into the approved community, it has two years of undisturbed work. At the end of it’s two years, it is put into a renewel pool. If the team is selected, they are reviewed and not considered again for two years. If they are not selected, they go into the pool again next year.
Meeting attendance — It was resolved that Laura would email the contacts mailing list no later then the Friday preceding a meeting
Ways of effectively communicating messages to Local Communities. Topic discussed included getting messages to every member of every loco in a timely manner. It was resolved to look into sending messages to mailing lists
Ways of using the new features of the LoCo Directory to leverage it’s effectiveness in a neat and well-thought out way. We discussed creating features to ease the migration from wiki to LD ( LoCo Directory ).
