08:40:52 <paragan> hi
08:41:58 <siddhesh> paragan: ^^ roll call, in case you're attending

08:42:43 <paragan> siddhesh, hello
08:43:16 <siddhesh> #topic tickets
08:43:22 <pjp> #link -> https://ethercalc.org/94ee5f3lw3
08:43:53 <siddhesh> We discussed and concluded on a few tickets last week, but huzaifa did not update the tickets with the information
08:44:02 <siddhesh> pjp has volunteered to cover that
08:44:26 <pjp> Yes,
08:44:27 <paragan> pjp, thanks for that
08:44:35 <Amita> thanks pjp :)
08:44:37 <siddhesh> also, a few people would like us (Ruth) to book their tickets; gnokii and prima yogi in particular
08:44:56 <siddhesh> and tuan needs us to reimburse early since the cost is quite high for him to bear
08:44:59 <pjp> There were some students as well, no?
08:45:13 <siddhesh> pjp has again volunteered to coordinate with them and ruth for this
08:45:20 <pjp> Yes,
08:45:40 <siddhesh> pjp: I don't know why huzaifa mentioned students in the email.  I don't know of any, unless prima yogi is a student
08:45:51 <siddhesh> gnokii is definitely not a student :P
08:45:54 <pjp> siddhesh: I see, okay
08:45:58 <pjp> siddhesh: :)
08:46:08 <pravins> siddhesh: yes
08:46:26 <siddhesh> with that out of the way, there is only one new ticket, which we can look at first
08:46:33 <siddhesh> #topic https://fedorahosted.org/fudcon-planning/ticket/564
08:46:40 <pravins> .hellomynameis pravins
08:46:41 <zodbot> pravins: pravins 'Pravin Satpute' <psatpute@redhat.com>
08:46:41 <siddhesh> alick, or Tao Zhao
08:46:46 <pjp> Right,
08:46:56 <siddhesh> #chair pravins paragan pjp Amita
08:46:56 <zodbot> Current chairs: Amita paragan pjp pravins siddhesh
08:47:11 <siddhesh> alick is doing a Fedora badges workshop
08:47:40 <siddhesh> he is also a fedora ambassador from China
08:47:43 <pjp> He is also planning to participate in the Ambassadors panel discussion
08:47:49 * siddhesh nods
08:48:09 <pravins> siddhesh: is that workshop selected?
08:48:17 <siddhesh> pravins: yes
08:48:26 <praveenkumar> .hellomynameis kumarpraveen
08:48:27 <zodbot> praveenkumar: kumarpraveen 'None' <kumarpraveen.nitdgp@gmail.com>
08:48:54 <siddhesh> +1 from me
08:49:15 <pravins> workshop + ambassadors panel discussion + Fedora contributor + (In range $500/400)
08:49:31 <Amita> yupp +1 from me too
08:49:35 <paragan> +1 as he is also doing workshop
08:49:40 <pravins> for 500 or 400?
08:49:54 <pjp> +1 because he is an active member, ambassador and is coming to represent part of APAC region
08:50:11 <siddhesh> the cost is 500, but the minimum requirement is $400
08:50:31 <praveenkumar> +1 from me too, he is active fedora member.
08:50:38 <pravins> good to go with $500
08:50:52 <Amita> let do $400
08:51:04 <pjp> same here, $400 is good,
08:51:45 <siddhesh> ok, ok, but can we add the extra $100 if we have spare?
08:51:57 <siddhesh> i.e. at the end
08:52:03 <pjp> Sure, at the end makes sense
08:52:14 <pravins> +1 from me as well.
08:52:14 <Amita> yes
08:52:35 <Amita> from where he is coming? can we quickly check tickets -- as he has not attached any
08:52:46 <pjp> Amita: Beijing, China
08:52:51 <amit> .hellomynameis amitshah
08:52:52 <zodbot> amit: amitshah 'Amit Shah' <amit.shah@redhat.com>
08:52:53 <pravins> Amita: good points
08:53:11 * amit waves
08:53:16 <siddhesh> Amita: pjp can do that with him to ensure we have the best deal
08:53:34 <Amita> siddhesh, yes
08:53:36 <pjp> siddhesh: Yep,
08:53:52 <siddhesh> amit: hi
08:53:57 <pravins> yes, lets move ahead for now :)
08:54:16 <Amita> yeah :)
08:54:31 <siddhesh> #agreed support up to $400 for now and bump up to #500 if funds are available at the end
08:54:43 <amit> siddhesh: $500?
08:54:49 <amit> (typo)
08:54:50 <siddhesh> #undo
08:54:50 <zodbot> Removing item from minutes: AGREED by siddhesh at 08:54:31 : support up to $400 for now and bump up to #500 if funds are available at the end
08:54:56 <siddhesh> #agreed support up to $400 for now and bump up to $500 if funds are available at the end
08:55:01 <siddhesh> there, thanks amit
08:55:24 <siddhesh> all other tickets are deferred till the deadline
08:55:40 <siddhesh> so I guess this is a short one, unless anybody else has concerns
08:55:55 <Amita> nothing
08:55:57 <amit> ah!
08:56:00 <amit> so I missed the whole thing :)
08:56:03 <siddhesh> amit: heh
08:56:17 <pjp> So, others shall be discussed end of this month?
08:56:18 <siddhesh> amit: we ack'd travel and stay for alick, that is all you mised
08:56:20 <Amita> amit, it was one ticket
08:56:32 <amit> ok
08:56:39 <amit> siddhesh: change topic to open floor?
08:56:49 <siddhesh> #topic open floor
08:56:55 <pravins> if we wait for deadline to approve tickets, airfare prices will go up.
08:56:56 <amit> not sure if this was brought up already
08:57:02 <amit> but I have 2 points
08:57:09 <siddhesh> pjp: yes, since there isn't isn't consensus on the tickets
08:57:14 <amit> 1. last week's updates were not made on the respective tickets
08:57:20 <siddhesh> amit: covered.
08:57:27 <siddhesh> pjp will take care of those
08:57:28 <pravins> can we reduce deadline?  1 week from now?
08:57:31 <amit> 2. we need to identify who will update tickets so that's not left in limbo
08:57:45 <amit> siddhesh: ok great
08:57:56 <amit> also, prima yogi's request - did we fwd details to ruth?
08:58:45 <pjp> amit: I'll write to Ruth today
08:58:56 <siddhesh> for (2), pjp and huzaifa I guess, and anybody else if both are unavailable
08:59:09 <amit> right- I did that 2 weeks back when they weren't around
08:59:11 <amit> pjp: thanks
08:59:15 <amit> pjp: so I guess it's upto you now :)
08:59:29 <amit> siddhesh: also, I forget: do we have a milestone for people who have booked tickets?
08:59:37 <amit> ie we could move them away from the 'book travel' milestone
08:59:51 <amit> I suppose we could use the reimbursement or actual conference milestoone
08:59:59 <pjp> amit: Yes,
09:00:39 <amit> pravins: we've announced deadline end dates in multiple places.  we can't change dates now.
09:01:01 <amit> ie. at least not advance the dates.  we can always postpone (because that doesn't hurt people wo are relying on already-out information)
09:01:29 <siddhesh> amit: lets move them to the last milestone - file expenses
09:01:37 <siddhesh> pravins: why do you want to do that?
09:01:46 <amit> siddhesh: yep.
09:02:01 <amit> pjp: can you move the tickets which have booked travel to the file expenses milestone?
09:02:11 <siddhesh> amit: also add a note saying that reimbursement will be at the end of the conference
09:02:11 <amit> pjp: it helps with reports like https://fedorahosted.org/fudcon-planning/report/3
09:02:23 <amit> siddhesh: I've added that to all tickets already
09:02:58 <pjp> amit: sure,
09:03:00 <siddhesh> amit: again, because the milestone names are leading some people to believe that it is an action and not a milestone
09:03:24 <amit> siddhesh: ok - since pjp is updating, pjp ^
09:03:49 <pjp> siddhesh: Yep, will do.
09:04:28 <siddhesh> cool, anything else
09:05:51 <pjp> Nope
09:05:56 <siddhesh> going once.
09:06:07 <siddhesh> going twice..
09:06:20 <siddhesh> gone...
