To see if this might work I would like to propose a first IRC meeting
next Monday 29.8. at 17:00 GMT in #debian-med.
I thought I could break with IRC but it seems to track me :-). Anyway,
depending on the weather conditions on that day, I would prefer something
like 19:30. But as I am not yet sure whether I am able to attend please
don't worry about me. Maybe someone can create a log and send that to the
list or put it in the wiki afterwards?
2. How do we want to use our Blog
- Do we require authors name on postings
- Should every posting be forewarded to planet.d.o
(and possibly other blog aggregators)
- Do we accept advertising of some companies on this
3. How to gather some money that can be used for organising
Debian Med sprints
- Amazon partnership
- Ask for donations via Paypal account
BTW, Steffen and me would really like to hear opinions about  even
before the meeting has started.
At the moment there is no visible article that should not have been forwarded
Nevertheless the article about playing with the Amazon cloud without
needing to pay for it, sounded interesting. So there are already
interesting topics that should not appear somewhere else. As I think that
this is the minority of articles, why not mark articles that should NOT be
forwarded to aggregators?
Is there anybody really using search boxes from Amazon? I guess it is no
loss if they disappear ...
From my point of view the name of the author should be clearly visible.
According to gathering money: Wouldn't it be better to let Debian collect
everything (-> tax advantages for donors) and pass it to us?
