Regular Agenda Items
New to Linux (New Users)
On hiatus since we are using the first talk for this purpose.
Linux-Ottawa Distro Project
Nothing new here yet. Marc has been getting a couple of systems together for the purposes of doing some installs and documentation.
Scott has logged in again, no change from the previous balance, no added notation.
John was going to check his access
We need to get Ian some GPG keys and a method of using it with Gmail. Mutt works :), along with Thunderbird. There may be a browser plugin, but I am not sure.
Based on the recent mailing list activity and the breaking of signing, we will be moving back to Mailman.
Brett has volunteered to take on the work.
We have had some back and forth and given a number of other deficiencies, we are considering doing a clean install of the linux-ottawa server in order to remove the old cruft and make sure we have no useless software installed.
We have not set a date for this yet, but we have a plan outlined
Proposal for getting a new server for the Mail Server for the purpose of building a new server and cutting over rather than trying to rebuild the existing one on the existing server. Estimated cost being less than $10 per month for the duration of the migration. ** Vote on Do we spend the money to get an additional server to install the mail software on a current OS
and migrate the existing content over: *** 5 yays *** 0 nays
Any commentary on it? I’m not sure who has tried it out yet, but it looks promising to me
The list of repeating sessions
This is still a thing to review. Has anyone We should review our repeating sessions list and see if we want to continue them all.
