WLUG Committee Meeting
18 May 2005
Meeting opened at 7.24pm
The number of Perrys attending was edited to reflect the actual number of Perrys on the committee.
Motion: that the minutes are a true and accurate record of the previous meeting
Exim4 video and encoded online; Perry to announce and wiki.
Total cost of installfest: $19.10. 12 people paid for $10 memberships on the day, 5 more have memberships with subs outstanding.
The secretaries report was tabled and accepted. The Treasurer has been locked in a room with wishes to contemplate life.
The committee has decided that our funding is to be held in reserve to meet unexpected operating costs such as hosting, server expenses, meeting rooms and possible speakers.
The installfest was very successful. Problems we had are discussed at InstallFestNotes. Obvious things to address next time, food, assigning helpers to helpees (possible solution: tickets/numbers), follow up support.
ubuntu.sh script did lots - should have set default web page to wiki.
Craig to write letters to sponsors/supporters. (Crawshaw, DSE, Allied Telesyn/Connector Systems).
While it went well, we feel we only reached a couple of people
Options: do it again, do it with changes, drop it.
Partner with Red Hat, Novell etc.
We would like to target a different group of people - achieving the goals of the charter.
NZCS are suggesting Okarore, 5 min south of Tirau, 13 June, dinner + meeting, $5 levy; we will announce this to the list and suggest people attend if they are interested.
