Sprints

Whiteboard

Introduction:
* What is Lubuntu? What's our purpose in life?
* Story on how Lubuntu is being used to revitalize a school system computer lab system.
* There's a place for everyone. Talk about teams and how they can help:

Admin:
* Introduce Admin Team and belkinsa

Documentation:
* Work is ongoing

IRC:
* Work is on going

Brainstorming:
* No new topics, since we're working on the latest brainstorm (LXQt)

Translation:
- Introduce Global Team
- Create a Global Team wiki
- Create Marketing wiki sub-pages for different languages
- Need help in software translation, especially in light of LXQt

Comms:
# preparing a survey for the locos to get a feeling of their work with lubuntu (to see how we could support them with presentation material f.ex.)
# preparing general information about the current 14.04.1 (video to be presented on conferences; flyers to give away to interested people
# re-organizing the wiki area of press material (it's planned to have an online section where you can find the latest news in teasers and a link to a downloadable PDF which LoCos can print to give an overview about our latest development.)
# collecting information about LXQt to be prepared for the switch (what's better, what's worse?)

Artwork:
- Talk about Lenny, introduce the Lennicorn, and how to make t-shirts and such (cc-by-sa)
- The usual wallpaper contest
- New artwork for LXQt but same general look as LXDE
- Perhaps additional themes

QA:
>>> 1. PPC
>>> - focus on LTS
>>> - the latest news on the Radeon issues
>>> 2. Testing
>>> - general discussion of what testing is
>>> - testing in light of LXQt
>>> 3. Bugs
>>> - bug reports need triaged
>>> - just focusing on Lubuntu bugs is a bite sized job

Development:
gilir will talk separately, based on the following blueprints:

> https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/lubuntu-v-qt-items
> https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/lubuntu-v-gtk-items

then we'll have questions…
