This is the notes I took today at the GUM featuring Bill Moran
talking about CVS.
Before the talk, there was a list of topics thrown out as possible
Mail Servers (not Sendmail because that is perceived
as being too much for a new person setting up a simple server).
PCMCIA - configurations
Jump Drives (and related temporary installed devices)
Also before the talk was pointed out there currently is no
GUM Chair to keep manage the GUM talk pipeline and everything
else GUM. (Where GUM is the monthly General User Meeting).
After the talk, in a Hot Topic session that followed the regular
talk, a smaller group convened to discuss organizational structure
of WPLUG. Here are my notes:
Next Week: Mark Dalrymple tutorial on GNU debugger
Co-hosting: Brian Sammon and Bill Moran
It was suggested and decided that name tags are a good
thing and that at least co-hosts should have name tags.
Name tags should also include title and or area of interest
Bill will handle name tags and requests being pinged
if he's posted nothing about it by <some time -- 4 days?> before
the next meeting.
Ability to cancel or confirm a GUM at the last minute.
Dennis volunteered to gather information and report back.
Possbilities are some type of possibly free or cheap
voice mail service that people could call and hear
whether there is a meeting that day or not.
If you know of some service that might work for this,
please let Dennis know.
Dennis, please respond here with your email so people
can contact you directly. Thanks.
Needed: GUM Chair and Committee
goals: to publish a schedule
The rest of my notes have to do with discussion concerning
what is WPLUG, what is the organization, and what are
possibilities for improvement.
Roughly, WPLUG is people interacting through:
Mail lists: wplug, wplug-plan, ...
GUM / tutorials
Beth Lynn - Chair (current? Or soon to be?
my notes aren't clear there)
Improvements: there was discussion about how WPLUG organization
could be improved to better meet the needs all the groups listed
above. I needed to leave at 2:00, and will leave it to others
to recap, and continue the discussion in the wplug-plan list.
