Disclaimer: I am definitely not a show off and am only posting this here so I can always look back and remember the responsibility I have voluntarily accepted upon me: To be an Ubuntu Member!

Here is the report of todays Community Council Meeting

  • General Items
  • Bhuvan suggested that the RSS feed of the wiki RecentChanges page should be advertized more. This is going to happen.
  • The options for reducing the stress on the CC meetings by (partially) delegating membership approvals have been discussed. There was general consensus that Option C of the plans of Mark Shuttleworth is the best way forward. This will be implemented as soon as possible.
  • LoCo Teams
  • The Japanese locoteam introduced itself, Jun Kobayashi and Hiroyuki Ikezoe reported their plans and their achievements. The main achievement is a localized version of the Ubuntu CD. Their good work will be merged with Ubuntu to make Ubuntu rock Japan.

  • The emphasis is all mine… ;)
  • It was stated that I created Planeta Ubuntu Brasil. Even though I did come up with the idea and got the project going, it was only due to the collaborative effort of a few Brazilian users that the web site came to be! I am very proud of what we have accomplished together and could never take credit for the entire enterprise! I have contacted the author of the original post and asked him to make the proper changes!

Update: It has been fixed…
