Re: Fwd: Meeting


Regarding, "As the representative from lubuntu to the qa team please go easy on me", rest assured I will be ;^)

I also need to be cut a little slack. While I've been a member of Ubuntu QA for quite some time I pretty much limit my tasks to iso-testing. I think Julien would affirm that I (Erick Brunzell) have helped diagnose a few bugs with both the live and alternate images. Sadly I also have an occasional brain fart :^/ 

That said I would like to play a part in the Lubuntu QA team but, and this is a huge but, I've never been able to conquer IRC - in spite of this:


Although that did get me closer than I'd ever been :^)

The problem for me is that I'm both sand blind and sand deaf due to a bout of meningo-encephalitis (unknown etiology) around the end of 2001. That makes communication really tough.

Basically things (both visual and audible) get garbled very easily so I can't respond quickly at all. I must take time to decipher things, sometimes it takes longer than others, and certain circumstances even result in seizures which are NOT fun.

But I'd very much like to be a part of the Lubuntu QA team. I think I could be useful, particularly given my experience with troubleshooting ubiquity and d-i problems.

So count me as "on board" but with limited abilities :^)

As always, thanks to everyone for all they do,

a couple of hours before the 1st lubuntu meeting, I have a QA [1] meeting.
This was sent to the couple of guys who are signed up for lubuntu QA, but as I always get asked so many questions about QA / Testing I invite others to attend. We only have a one hour slot, followed a couple of hours later with our lubuntu meeting.

As the representative from lubuntu to the qa team please go easy on me & ensure any topics you wish to discuss on the QA meeting are on the aganda. 
I hope that just sitting in on a QA meeting will be educational to those who are interested in joining our lubuntu-qa area. My apologies for being the chair, it was not planned - I hate being the chair of meetings.

Oh, and just So I do not look like a complete fool, could someone sort out [2] this link so it actually points to the meeting area. I have been via Edubuntu, kubuntu to try and get it.......

You are invited to the 1st QA meeting of the New Year.


Yeah, even better reason to attend, as our usual chair for all of the

teams will not be there, I have been asked to chair it. when it gets to

the #lubuntu section, please do simply say that we have followed up on

last request and created a team?
