20:04 <Wild_Man> #startmeeting 20:00 UTC Membership Board Meeting
20:04 <meetingology> Meeting started at 20:04:58 UTC.  The chair is Wild_Man.  Information about MeetBot at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/meetingology
20:05 <meetingology> Available commands: action, commands, idea, info, link, nick
20:05 <Wild_Man> Hello and welcome to the Membership Board meeting!
20:05 <Wild_Man> The wiki page for the Review Board is available here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/Boards. We will attempt to get through all of the applicants that have added themselves to that list before today's meeting.
20:05 <Wild_Man> 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. The format for the meeting is as follows: We will go through the list of applicants one by one, by date of application (FIFO).
20:05 <Wild_Man> 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.
20:05 <Wild_Man> 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.

20:07 <Wild_Man> basenji, please introduce yourself

20:22 <basenji> I have tried to get in touch with other Afrikaans translators. no luck
20:23 <Wild_Man> basenji, it is probably up to you to start your own team of translators in that case, it is hard to find volunteers sometimes
20:23 <basenji> Yes if possible.

20:29 <nicoz-> Hi everyone, my name is nico, I'm from Salerno(IT).. I have adhered to the code of conduct, I contribute to try the daily current of ubuntu and deriving, tracking bug and more... I daily help on Italian support channels and forums
20:29 <nicoz-> my launchpad page https://launchpad.net/~nicoz91
20:29 <nicoz-> I have already created a wiki page
20:30 <nicoz-> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/nicoz91
20:31 <Wild_Man> You've signed the code of conduct. Did you understand everything it said and do you agree to abide by the spirit of the code of conduct?
20:31 <nicoz-> yes
20:32 <diddledani> we have one testimonial from nhaines on the Discourse https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/nicoz-membership-application/25381
20:32 <Bashing-om> nicoz-: You are most active in translations - what language are you working - and for how long ?
20:33 <nicoz-> English - Italian
20:33 <nicoz-> for at least one hour a day I dedicated myself
20:33 <nicoz-> now I'm testing the various daily for you
20:33 <Wild_Man> nicoz-, you mention that you are active on the forum is that the Ubuntu Forums? can we have a link to your profile on the forums that you are active on please?
20:33 <nicoz-> https://bugs.launchpad.net/~nicoz91
20:35 <nicoz-> just moment
20:35 <nicoz-> https://forum.ubuntu-it.org/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=82309
20:36 <nicoz-> registered since 2009
20:36 <diddledani> I see your latest 10 translations are for fcitx in various releases of Ubuntu. Are you aware of the supported lifecycle of each release, and are you concentrating on currently-supported releases? I ask because I see several contributions against not-currently-supported releases
20:37 <nicoz-> those that I find with less translations, regardless of the package, if it is important I can work on specific packages too
20:38 <nicoz-> i have contribute https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/jammy/+source/gnome-software
20:39 <nicoz-> gnome-software is more important
20:40 <nicoz-> very*
20:41 <diddledani> are you currently a member of your local "loco"?
20:42 <nicoz-> I have never requested it
20:43 <nicoz-> now Italian volunteers on launchpad are ghosts :P lol
20:43 <Kilos> nicoz-  join your local loco, always good to have friends to help close by
20:43 <Kilos> wake up the ghosts
20:43 <diddledani> what are your plans for the next 6 months to a year for contribution? are you going to continue your current contributions or do you intend to contribute more widely?
20:44 <nicoz-> yes i will continue to contribute .. i have an open source debt since 2007
20:45 <nicoz-> ever since i started using ubuntu i always wanted to repay what i got from you
20:45 <nicoz-> i want to keep testing new versions, help #ubuntu-it users
20:46 <Kilos> nicoz-  can you make spaghetti bolougnaise
20:46 <diddledani> do we get sgetti?
20:47 <Wild_Man> HAHAHA really?
20:47 <Kilos> lol
20:47 <Bashing-om> nicoz-: In your testing of new versions - as you encounter issues - do you make reports of the issues ?
20:47 <nicoz-> also .. if you want to put the water to boil
20:47 <nicoz-> ;O
20:47 <nicoz-> :P
20:48 <nicoz-> always basghin-om, I have the system in full reporting level
20:48 <madhens> Okay, we really need to get arighi to apply for membership if pasta-making skill is now a qualification
20:48 <nicoz-> I'm testing them on virtual machine, and on an hp g8
20:49 <Kilos> madhens  its the sauce that counts
20:49 <nicoz-> I'm also good as a cook madhens
20:49 <nicoz-> ;)
20:49 <diddledani> nicoz-: could you paste a link to a bug report you've filed, please?
20:49 <Wild_Man> That makes a difference a little more difficult to report bugs that are not done on a bare metal system
20:49 <nicoz-> https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/terminator/+bug/1952504
20:50 <Wild_Man> I received page not found
20:50 <nicoz-> I collaborated for a bot in python for debian-it
20:50 <diddledani> same
20:51 <nicoz-> https://gitlab.com/linux-lab1/deb-bot
20:51 <nicoz-> I am currently also a delegate op of #debian-it on libera
20:53 <Wild_Man> nicoz-, please understand that debian is not Ubuntu so what you do there I do not believe counts towards membership for Ubuntu
20:53 <nicoz-> ah ok scuse me..
20:54 <Wild_Man> No problem at all it's all important work and I commend you for it
20:54 <nicoz-> ;)
20:55 <nicoz-> I try to reciprocate to the open source world
20:56 <Wild_Man> You say you are active on the forum do you know how long it has been since your last post there?
20:57 <nicoz-> i prefer to give support on irc
20:57 <nicoz-> have a direct approach with the user in order to lead him to the solution, wherever possible
20:58 <Wild_Man> I understand, we all have out preference to where we give support
20:58 <Wild_Man> out/our
20:58 <diddledani> are there any members of the #ubuntu-it channel that can provide supporting testimonials?
20:59 <nicoz-> I try to always be polite and friendly with users
20:59 <nicoz-> you can ask mapreri who sees me very often active on the channel
20:59 <nicoz-> obviously we don't know each other
21:00 <Kilos> nicoz-  try  and make friends with the guys on the channels you work on
21:01 <Kilos> alsways handy to get support from known members
21:01 <nicoz-> of course I have friends in the community
21:01 <nicoz-> however many are not ubuntu members
21:02 <mapreri> uh hi
21:02 <mapreri> what's up?
21:02 <Kilos> hi mapreri  we are looking for support for nicoz-
21:02 <nicoz-> i was applying for mapreri membership
21:02 <mapreri> for what?
21:02 <mapreri> ah
21:02 <Wild_Man> Ubuntu Membership
21:02 <nicoz-> i was applying for membership
21:03 <mapreri> did the process change?  back in my time one would collect endorsments in the wiki page long before the meetings :D
21:03 <Wild_Man> It is still that way but he has none
21:03 <nicoz-> they are already in the wiki
21:04 <nicoz-> if it's a problem, it doesn't matter
21:04 <mapreri> Yes, I've seen nicoz- around IRC channels for quite a long time (can't remember how long, so it's likely very long) also giving support to people.  but uh, besides that I'm afraid I don't have an impression of nicoz- :(
21:04 <mapreri> nicoz-: they are not in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/nicoz91 - where should we look for them?
21:05 * mapreri lives in a bubble, so unless one works on the same things as me it's not easy for me to notice :(
21:05 <nicoz-> indeed mapreri is not very active
21:05 <nicoz-> :P
21:06 <mapreri> nowadays I do most of my things in debian eheh :)
21:06 <nicoz-> ;P ctte
21:07 <Wild_Man> Thank you mapreri
