12:03:43 <jared> Hello and welcome to the Ubuntu Membership Review Board for the 1200 UTC meeting for March 20, 2013. The wiki page for the Review Board is available here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/Boards
12:04:00 <jared> We will attempt to get through all of the applicants that have added themselves to that list before today's meeting. If we are unable to make it through the entire list due to time constraints, then at the next meeting we will pick up where we left off.
12:04:01 <jared> The format for the meeting is as follows: We will go through the list of applicants one by one, by date of application (FIFO).
12:04:01 <jared> Each applicant should introduce themselves (1-5 sentences) and provide links to their Ubuntu Wiki page. After the introduction the members of the Membership Review Board will review the pages and, if needed, ask the applicant further questions.
12:04:02 <jared> During this time it is encouraged for other members of the community to show their support for the applicant. Do not be alarmed if the members of the Membership Review Board are quiet during this time; they are most likely reading wiki/launchpad/forum/other pages and deciding how they are going to vote.
12:04:06 <jared> When the board is ready to vote, they will publicly vote in the channel with either +1, 0, or -1 (for membership, abstain, and against membership, respectively). If the sum of those numbers is positive, then the applicant is now an official Ubuntu member! (feel free congratulate them!)

12:20:54 <tvoss> Hi all
12:21:04 <jared> Now we move on to the second application, if you can please give us a brief intro tvoss while we read over the application
12:21:14 <tvoss> jared, sure :)
12:21:19 <tvoss> again: Hi all
12:21:50 <tvoss> My name is Thomas Voß and I have been using Ubuntu since the 4.10 days
12:21:51 <jared> #voters cjohnston Destine Pendulum jared hggdh amachu
12:21:51 <meetingology> Current voters: Destine Pendulum amachu cjohnston hggdh jared
12:22:29 <tvoss> however, before joining Canonical around 11.10, I mostly used Ubuntu and advertised it to friends, family and co-workers.
12:23:22 <tvoss> When joining Canonical, I spent my first few weeks on ramping up the QA efforts around Ubuntu in preparation for 12.04. I then focused on teaching Chromium pixel perfect scrolling
12:24:20 <tvoss> before starting to work on the Ubuntu Touch project. There, I designed and implemented the platform abstraction layer that allows us to selectively reuse certain Android drivers and services.
12:24:51 <jared> tvoss: Just out of curiosity, how long have you been involved in the Touch project?
12:25:03 * k1l cheers up for tvoss \o/
12:25:13 <tvoss> jared, in the Ubuntu Touch project (as in mobile)? From the very beginning
12:25:24 * ogra_ joins k1l and pulls out his pompoms
12:25:41 <jared> tvoss: cool, just never sure as projects that new it's hard to judge looking at launchpad team membership join dates.
12:25:46 <hggdh> hi ogra_ :-)
12:25:56 <cjohnston> What's Mir?
12:25:58 <ogra_> (to cold here for a miniskirt, so bear with me :) )
12:26:10 <tvoss> cjohnston, Mir is a next-generation display server
12:26:24 <ogra_> cjohnston, the systemd of display servers ;)
12:26:40 <tvoss> right now, I'm working as a technical architect at Canonical, focussing on unity and mir, working towards a cross-formfactor future
12:26:47 <tvoss> k1l, ogra_ thanks :)
12:27:04 <tvoss> and that's pretty much me
12:27:33 <hggdh> tvoss: please give us a bit, discussing it
12:27:46 <jared> tvoss: I like the inclusiveness of your goals.
12:27:58 <tvoss> hggdh, sure :)
