16:00:45 <mitr> Hello
16:00:55 <nirik> morning everyone.
16:00:58 <junland> Morning
16:02:52 <nirik> not too many of us around today. :) Oh well.
16:02:55 <nirik> #topic agenda
16:03:01 <junland> Yeaaaaa :/
16:03:05 <nirik> I was thinking we could recap the test day...
16:03:10 <nirik> any other items ?
16:03:12 <junland> Yes,
16:03:30 <junland> We had one about 6-8 people participate. 1 Bug was filed.
16:03:50 <nirik> well, not great, but not the worst we could have done. ;)
16:04:15 <nirik> did most folks find then that everything worked as they expected?
16:04:22 <junland> Yea, wish there was a lot more participation...
16:04:46 <junland> Well the basic TC's where all green.
16:04:49 <junland> So yea.
16:05:18 <nirik> Thats good
16:05:22 <junland> Docker and Cockpit looked okay even though only 2 -3 people tried it.
16:05:26 <nirik> #topic test day
16:05:34 <nirik> #info test day had 6-8 people and 1 bug filed.
16:05:41 <nirik> #info most tests were green
16:06:47 <junland> Actually a total of 5 people posted results.
16:06:55 <junland> Including myself.
16:07:17 <nirik> it's hard to get people out to test days, but hey, any testing is great. ;)
16:07:32 <junland> Very true.
16:07:41 <junland> It was fun neither the less.
16:07:50 <junland> :)
16:08:31 <nirik> great. Thanks for organising it junland
16:08:40 <junland> No problem.
16:08:50 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
16:08:53 <stickster> nirik: I'm here late, I have something to share but I am happy to wait for the bottom of the meeting to do so (all other business, or what not)
16:09:03 <stickster> Oh. Looks like we just hit that :-D
16:09:06 <nirik> stickster: not many of us here today, so we are already to open floor. ;)
16:09:12 <junland> Yea...
16:09:25 <nirik> stickster: go ahead...
16:09:26 <stickster> nirik: Can I talk about the Fedora.next website?
16:09:32 <nirik> please do
16:09:42 <nirik> #topic Fedora.next website
16:10:15 * junland has another question but will wait after stickster. :)
16:10:37 <stickster> We had a meeting yesterday with the Websites team and several WG representatives, to arrive at text we can use for the Fedora.next website -- which offers a main page + 3 product-specific pages (plus some other stuff, but these are the focus)
16:11:07 <stickster> We are working on a usable draft of text for each product, so we can get the strings ready to ship to translators.
16:11:17 <nirik> excellent
16:11:22 <junland> Awesome.
16:11:28 <stickster> We didn't have a Server WG rep there but I agreed to take a stab at the Server stuff if no one else was available.

16:12:52 <stickster> #link https://jreznik.fedorapeople.org/websites.next/workstation.png (example product-specific page -- this is for Workstation)
16:13:10 <nirik> those are mockups? or from some source?
16:13:12 <stickster> You can see the up-to-the-minute new site in the fedora-web repo, in the 'getfedora' branch
16:13:19 <stickster> https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/fedora-web.git
16:13:25 * nirik notices in spins "find find many images"
16:13:26 <stickster> Under 'getfedora.org' directory.
16:13:30 <stickster> nirik: Already fixed.
16:13:34 <nirik> cool. ;)
16:13:36 <stickster> Those screenshots are a few days old :-)
16:13:48 <bkircher> :retab
16:14:06 <bkircher> uh, sorry, wrong buffer
16:14:13 <nirik> stickster: cool. So there is initial server text ? or not yet?
16:14:50 <stickster> nirik: I have a Gobby doc up called "getfedora.org/server" to use for updating strings. We have some content right now but it needs work. My plan is to try to redraft before lunch, and send to the Server WG. I will then expect the liaison to work on the text with the WG over the next couple of days, and give us something the WG approves -- I'm happy to do commits based on that
16:15:01 * junland looks at website.
16:15:07 <stickster> nirik: The Gobby doc is empty but I'll have it populated with the draft content in a few minutes.
16:15:14 <nirik> cool. sounds great! Thanks for working on this stickster
16:15:14 <junland> Wow, looks pretty cool.
16:15:19 <nirik> back to your doc roots. ;)
16:15:20 <stickster> nirik: -ENOTIME so far, but I'm fixing that :-)
16:15:30 <stickster> nirik: Ah, the simple days....
16:16:16 <stickster> nirik: So the important thing for the WG is that once I have this draft, we need review, feedback, and approval/edits by the WG as soon as possible. This way we can get commits in, and ship to translators with enough time that we can have lots of translations ready on GA day.
16:16:32 <nirik> whats the deadline?
16:16:35 <stickster> Fortunately, that work can continue pretty much through and after GA day -- websites are easy to fix/re-ship continuously
16:16:38 <nirik> or just 'asap'?
16:16:46 <stickster> nirik: By Friday for sure
16:16:56 <stickster> nirik: Who's the liaison? sgallagh_afk ?
16:17:24 <nirik> yeah. he's traveling this week tho... I think he's at lisa?
16:17:25 * stickster is about 99.9% sure, just checking so I don't end up poking the wrong person :-)
16:17:30 <stickster> Ah, right.
16:17:39 <stickster> nirik: Would you be able to drive this to conclusion for Friday?
16:17:48 <stickster> nirik: Or can you recommend someone else who's here in the meeting?
16:17:50 <nirik> I can try... hopefully we can get some feedback on list
16:18:41 <stickster> nirik: OK -- not sure how you want to #info/#action here for people to be aware
16:18:47 * stickster done
16:18:55 <stickster> EOF
16:18:58 <nirik> #info website draft due soon to list for feedback and comments
16:19:13 <nirik> #action nirik will gather comments and try and make sure the draft is in by friday
16:19:18 <nirik> thanks stickster
16:19:23 <junland> Yes thank you.
16:19:25 <stickster> np :-)
16:19:26 <nirik> junland: you had something addtional?
16:19:37 <nirik> #topic Open Floor part II, the open flooring
16:20:02 <junland> Yes, is there any other steps that we have todo in terms of QA / TC's?
16:20:15 <junland> So, another way to put it, what do we have left?
16:20:16 <nirik> just test them as they come out...
16:20:23 <junland> Got it.
16:20:36 <nirik> there will at least be an RC...
16:20:48 <nirik> but probibly some more TC's before that
16:21:17 <nirik> #info continue to test TC and RC composes as they come out as we get closer to release.
16:21:17 <junland> Roger.
16:21:29 <nirik> Anyone have any other items? if not, will close out in a minute...
16:21:58 * junland doesn't have anything else.
16:23:46 <nirik> ok, thanks for coming everyone.

I talked to #fedora-server folks on IRC. User "danofsatx" spoke up
and said he'd be interested to provide one. I don't know precisely
what we're looking for, but he indicated he was a server administrator
in his office who is planning to deploy Fedora 21 Server.
Langdon also indicated he'd think about whom he might reach as a
