Volunteer/Operations Meeting - Jan 10, 1996
The following is based on Jabr's notes from the meeting.
No formal minutes were taken.
Guy Bzibziak told us about a
``Linux Consultants'' mailing list
and showed us a magazine he'd found at Quantum Books: ``SysAdmin''
This month's topic is ``Modula-3''.
- Guy had difficulty in making it sound exciting
- Phil Jensen can't make the meeting, isn't sure which speaker
will show up (hopefully both)
- Guy will follow up with the two speakers; email addresses are in
Phil's mail message.
No topic for March yet, deadline is here. Need to pick a topic and write
the Calendar description ``Immediately if not sooner''.
What's the deal with Sudha's "ads" in the Calendar for Web meetings?
House ads? Jabr will ask Heather about these, how we can use this resource.
The following ideas for topics are on the table. Volunteers needed
to flesh out ideas, maybe more brainstorming. Need meetings,
feature articles, speakers/presenters, demos, pointers to info
via ftp/gopher/http for group web pages
