06:46:25 <ianweller> dramsey: if you think this is gonna be a regular meeting time, it's probably a good idea to block out this time on that wiki page
06:47:02 <dramsey> Respectfully noted.
06:47:09 <dramsey> True, we were suppose to be online about 3 and a half hours ago, but things were not to our advantage.

07:32:21 <dramsey> Sounds good, should we move to the next topic or do others have any more input?
07:32:44 <azneita> next :)
07:32:48 <dramsey> #topic  Plans on APAC coordination/organization
07:33:13 <dramsey> Everyone, we have had a lot of discussion in the past about the "I am Fedora" podcast concept.
07:33:34 <dramsey> I think that this has merit and I hope you may try this in your area.
07:33:42 <dramsey> #link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wgNd4JIXoA&fmt=18
07:34:40 <dramsey> Are others doing such things or have interests for APAC to field back to our fedora-ambassadors mailing list?
07:35:12 <dramsey> Also, I wonder if this timeslot is better for our participants near the Indian Ocean...inquires with everyone on your opinion.
07:37:43 <azneita> hear! hear!
07:38:17 <dramsey> We had a lot of people here today.
07:38:33 <dramsey> May be this topic is so so, should we go to next topic.
07:38:36 <franciscod> this timeslot is good :)
07:38:42 <dramsey> That's what I thought.
07:38:48 <dramsey> The other slot was too early.
07:39:14 <dramsey> which is about 4 and a half hours earlier not advantageous, right?
07:39:33 <azneita> i was still sleepy then :)
07:39:36 <azneita> haha
07:39:44 <azneita> this slot ain't hal bad :)
07:39:45 <franciscod> yeah, early morning here too. for a sunda
07:39:46 <dramsey> +1 to franciscod and azneita...
07:39:52 <franciscod> y

07:40:34 <dramsey> #idea Make next APAC meeting in December during 06:00 or 07:00 UTC...also not to conflict with a couple of events going on.
07:40:36 <dramsey> Sound good?
07:40:54 <franciscod> yauh
07:41:36 <dramsey> Good, other thoughts or should we move to next topic?
07:42:11 <azneita> next

07:44:24 <dramsey> +1 for Mel Chua, Magie, Engels, and Nap.
07:44:50 <dramsey> Azneita, thank you.  I think that this new time slot may be advantageous for others in APAC, for sure.
