05:37:07 <dramsey> s/=/+
05:37:22 <suresht> i like SElinux :)
05:37:35 <bodhizazen> Well, selinux is a big topic
05:37:45 <suresht> bodhizazen, i will ping you on this topic
05:38:10 <dramsey> Everyone, please continue your ideas.  This is really good.  True one hour wonders for a per topic...
05:38:11 <bckurera> fyi bckurera s not a techy one ;-)
05:38:14 <bodhizazen> I was thinking of breaking it into a few sessions, spoke with nirk re: classroom as well
05:38:29 <suresht> yes but we have to breaking parts
05:38:44 <suresht> that's sound great
05:38:48 <bckurera> yup one hour session series

05:39:39 <suresht> FranScoD
05:40:03 <bodhizazen> nirik was running classroom, but my understanding is he no longer has time, so put me down as an instructor
05:40:19 <bodhizazen> I would like some assistance with promoting classroom sessions
05:40:26 <dramsey> Is there any #info #idea or #action to be done?
05:40:28 <suresht> bodhizazen, nice to hear
05:40:33 <bodhizazen> and suggestions for topics
05:40:36 * nirik nods. Good work for picking up and running with it. ;)
05:40:38 <dramsey> bodhizazen, we support you and help make ideas.
05:40:48 <dramsey> hi nirik and hongqing
05:40:56 <suresht> yes he is busy with Fedora-Infrastructure
05:41:07 <hongqing> hi, dramsey
05:41:21 <nirik> I'll be happy to help as time permits. ;)
05:41:22 <suresht> nirik, thanks
05:41:37 <bodhizazen> 'lo nirik , did not see you lurking there
05:41:52 <nirik> I'm often around. ;)
05:41:57 <dramsey> +1
05:41:59 <suresht> so bodhizazen you may fix the time and date and let us know
05:42:22 <bodhizazen> I was going to ask, any ideas as to what times have been popular in the past ?
05:42:43 <bodhizazen> is there a mechanism to log sessions for people in other time zones ?
05:42:57 <nirik> it's hard to say. I think you can often find people around if you advertise enough.
05:42:59 <suresht> dramsey, help on this
05:43:01 <bodhizazen> distribute an outline for sessions ?
05:43:02 <dramsey> I am very happy to see the Fedora Classrooms alive again.  I tried by e-mail and IRC so is great to see interests develop.  we need to support each other.
05:43:10 <nirik> yes, you can/should use the same setup as we do for meetings with zodbot. ;)
05:43:11 <dramsey> +1
05:43:47 <suresht> nirik, dramsey +1
05:43:50 <bodhizazen> OK, I think what I will do is plan a session for iptables, hope in 2-3 weeks ?
05:44:00 <dramsey> +1
05:44:03 <bodhizazen> I will write an outline
05:44:18 <bodhizazen> so people can follow along
05:44:25 <suresht> yes
05:44:29 <dramsey> +1 nirik on advertise and bodhizazen on an outline to follow
05:44:32 <dramsey> yes
05:44:43 <suresht> send mail to list then we will get it
