Ubuntu Ohio LoCo

Some very good reminders from Mint's project leader:

"This isn’t something orchestrated by Canonical against Mint like I’ve seen some people say in the comments."

"It’s not even about what was said, it’s about what’s being sold to readers as the next big controversy."

There are people for whom this controversy has become their spectator sport, all they want is to see blood and they don't care who or what gets hurt in the process. To that end they will hype and push any possible controversy, and paint it in the worst possible light, just to turn it into a fight.

Please, if you value any of these open source projects, don't let yourself become one of them.
I hear a Canonical dev was more opinionated than knowledgeable and the press blew what he said out of proportion. I wouldn't mind too much, if we weren't finding ourselves answering questions from panicked users rather than working on what matters right now (i.e. Mint 16 RC). So I'll be brief.

New podcast episode!  Discusses the state of the community and how we really don't have at the moment overarching directives from above...whatever that is...as to where we focus our energies.
This week's episode talks about directions and forward planning. There is no transcript as something had to be beeped out in an unusual fashion. Members of the Ohio community are suggested to subscribe to the new Twitter account and to perhaps follow the Google Plus page.

Some reading material as we get ready to look at the verification application
The “Trusty Tahr” development cycle has begun. The LoCo Council has a new look heading into the cycle as it has new members. In light of some statements by Jono Bacon about our local communities, it is time to recap what the LoCo Council does and does not do for the community across Earth.

Some things I've learnt whilst being a WISP: * Always check the cables on the ground. Standing on top of a 40-foot roof crimping an ethernet cable in a gale isn't sane. * Always bring the right fixing kit. Or at least be able to drive to somewhere where one may be purchased. * Always bring enough cables, crimps, tools. * If you cant see your target from the ground, adding 10m of height will probably ...

Added to the schedule for Nov 6: Thomas Perl - gPodder (http://gpodder.org/).  (I wonder what his favorite scripting language is... {grin})

On how Debian's APT/Dpkg and Python's PIP are both useful.
On a regular basis, I find myself the odd-man-out when it comes to talking about how to work with Python on Debian systems. I'm going to write this and post it so that I might be able to point people at my thoughts without having to write the same email in response to each thread that pops up.

As sent over e-mail:

Greetings Ubuntu Ohio!

I have Ohio Linux Fest 2013 up on the LoCo portal as an event here: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-us-ohio/2504-ubucon-at-ohio-linux-fest-2013/

The register link on the page will take you to the registration page on OLF's site to register for the entire event if you have not already done so.  If the address is correct in the portal you can also get the portal to spit out instructions on how to get to the convention center.  A map showing generally where the convention center is located is also shown.

If you register for OLF I would appreciate it if you would please leave a comment on the LoCo portal page so I can get an idea of who is coming and who isn't.  Your Launchpad login credentials are what you need for logging into the LoCo portal.

I look forward to seeing everybody possible at OLF.  A big goal is that I want to get as many team members together for a picture or two to post for a team health check.  Yes folks, we are earnestly reaching for Verified status under the new regime announced here: http://lococouncil.ubuntu.com/2013/08/25/new-local-communities-healthcheck/

Have a beautiful Wednesday wherever you are...

Stephen Michael Kellat
Point of Contact/Leader, Ubuntu Ohio

P.S. Please do not forget to listen to the most recent episode of the Burning Circle: http://ohio.ubuntu-us.org/node/164

Verily, verily this needs your support and assistance.  Chime in with results so that this can be as thoroughly tested on as wide a range of hardware profiles as possible.
 
In a few weeks the Xubuntu team will make the final decision whether to stick with X.Org for the 13.10 or follow Ubuntu with the launch of XMir.

In order to make an informed decision, we need more testers of XMir! See the following post to learn how you can test Xubuntu 13.10 with XMir and report your results.

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/xubuntu-devel/2013-August/009205.html

Note: This test will not work effectively on a virtual machine, it must be installed on actual hardware.

Story
Introduction
What is Ubuntu Ohio?

Ubuntu Ohio is a group of enthusiastic people dedicated to spreading Ubuntu in the great state of Ohio. We are known as a LoCo Team, which stands for a Local Community of Ubuntu users. We often get together at conventions, meetings, parties, and online.

For more information about LoCo teams, please check out the LoCo FAQ.

Who We Are

Ubuntu Ohio is comprised of hundreds of people all working together to spread and support Ubuntu. Chances are there are some close to you! Take a look at some of our members' blogs on the Planet.

There are several ReLoCos (Really Local Communities) around the state which are also great to get involved in.
