I really, really need to get that IRC meeting time changed - it keeps
colliding with work in the worst way. I know the i18n team meets on
Thursdays - I'd be happier to meet after that, if it's possible.
Thoughts welcome. Looking at the possibilities calendar we all put
together, there's quite a spread. (Changing to another day is also

Yep. Can we roll that together with the blog post series? do a
photo/pithy comment version of the blog post for Bonjour? maybe with
pointers in both directions? And post on Facebook to say they're
there, and so on...

Yep. And *always* good!

Yep. Do we have a place for them? On the website? Separate blog?

I like the questions you have. As we see the need for more/different
kinds of questions (from i18n, artwork, whoever) it just needs the
more specialist questions changing - easy enough to bolt on when the
time comes.

Yep. It would be great to map our people, to have their geo location
on their profile (if they agree, of course) - we'll have lots of ways
to make this work to grow the community, if people don't mind joining

Who's the artwork lead at the moment? I can take it on so long as a)
I know who to approach (sending mails to the list doesn't always
work) and b) what the deadlines are. I have some time on the weekend
before I bolt off for 10 days on a trip, so I could maybe map stuff
out with someone, and do bits and pieces while I'm away.

Is that only artwork/marcomm? I would think we need other teams in
on this, yes? Who, and how to pull it all together?

>    - other stuff?

The kakemono - is it finished, and did Damien get to use it? I saw
some stuff whizz by, but it seemed like it was a) late and b)
unfinished. If we're doing projects like that - kakemono, posters,
t-shirts... where there's input from both artwork and marcom, who is
supposed to keep after it until completion? Can I make a strong case
for its being artwork, at least for now?

Yes, please.

I'll be in transit Monday night, so no Council meeting for me, but it
would be good to have an IRC meet for marcom in the next day or so if
there's anyone around.
