Default UDS Notes Dump from community session

Hi, below is a dump from our notes from the community UDS session this
afternoon, it's unfiltered and raw but we'll put together something
nicer later on...

= UDS Session - 12 May 2010 =



1. What happened during the last 6 months? What improvements do we need
in our
community and what can we do for the maverick cycle?
2. Edubuntu Advocacy team and getting educators / non-technical users
3. Check existing LP teams and whether it needs re-organising

== What's been happening the last 6 months ==

* New Edubuntu Council (6 new members), Edubuntu teams are now owned by
Edubuntu Council
* We now have regular weekly meetings (every Wednesday)
* We have an Edubuntu package set where edubuntu-dev team members can
upload to


* Feed aggregators from user blogs on edubuntu.org

== Edubuntu Advocacy Team ==

* Maybe a feed on our website for users/teachers?
* Edubuntu section for Ubuntu Forums?
* Bring ubuntu-education list to Edubuntu umbrella
* Edubuntu meetings not ideal for teachers, perhaps a seperate kind of
for them?
* A lot of feedback is already given and available, we should check for
platforms for educator communication and perhaps present Edubuntu there
* Facebook group specifically for teachers/educators/users/etc - mhall
: http://k12opensource.ning.com/ ?
* Page for tips and what do do with Edubuntu... ability for teachers to add
their own tips and howto pages with educational resources

== LP Teams ==

Currently Edubuntu teams edubuntu-council is member of:

1 Edubuntu Advocacy
-# Edubuntu Artwork - Should merge with edubuntu-dev and ubuntu-artwork
2 Edubuntu Bugsquad
3 Edubuntu Developers
4 Edubuntu Documentation Team
-# Edubuntu Handbook Contributors - Should merge with edubuntu-doc
-# Edubuntu iTalc devel team - Should merge with edubuntu-dev
5 Edubuntu Members
-# Edubuntu Menu Editor development team - Should merge with edubuntu-dev
6 Edubuntu Website

== Edubuntu-dev PPA ==

* Make stable release versions for big packages like Gcompris available
* Make users aware of PPA

== Edubuntu Menu Editor ==

== Get our users/partners to tell us what they use ==

* Ask Guadalinex/RL/others to provide us with the list of applications
they are
currently using and aren't in Ubuntu so we can package them and have
them on
the DVD.
* Guadalinex will soon have statistics on application usage on 10.04

== Edubuntu target market ==

* Edubuntu is currently targeted at lower-resourced environments, mostly
primary and secondary schools that seek a turn-key solution.
* Tertiary environments tend to have dedicated sysadmins and IT staff that
will tailor Ubuntu to their needs and install only required packages.
* Tertiary related packages would fall in the scope of being maintained by
Edubuntu but not necessarilly included on the Edubuntu disc
* Some of the server-side tools, such as moodle and schooltool may be
appropriate for tertiary use, it will be included for server task.
tertiary use

Meta-package for tertiary use is being discussed at:
