LoCo Team banners for Approved teams

LoCo Team banners for Approved teams

Following on from my post  last week regarding the up to date conference packs and the new banners for APPROVED teams, we have created a new wiki page we need the team contact to fill in. Again, a big thank you goes to Canonical for making this possible!

The wiki pages lists the teams at present who are approved  at present, please do not add any more teams in there without consulting the LoCo Council.  Team contacts need to update the wiki AND mail shipit with the relevant information on the wiki page. The banners are not ready as of yet but will be soon, and we need to have this information at hand when we have them in stock.   Remember when updating the wiki to check if someone else is editing it to avoid wiki conflicts!

Spring Cleaning the wiki over UGJ Weekend

Spring Cleaning the wiki over UGJ Weekend

There is an enormous amount of useful information on wiki.ubuntu.com however there is also a lot of duplicate triplicate and redundant material on there also.  This weekend why not get your loco reviewing a section of the wiki and help to clear up some of the pages.  I’ve noticed sometimes that a page was created in lower  case and then never used as someone else created the wiki in upper case, well then the one not used should be removed.

The LoCo Council are going to be looking over the sections of the pages LoCo Teams and if you want to help that would be great.  A lof of that information is on the LoCo Directory – I’d hope by now folks know about the directory………………

If you go through the wiki and find all the pages that are out of date, unused or the information is over on the LD already  add the Category “CategoryLoCoObsolete? to it.   We the LC will review the pages and decide their fate.  So don’t be worried.

FYI — to add a Category, just append:

----
CategoryLoCoObsolete

to the bottom of a page. If there’s already a Category, do this:

----
CategoryAwesomeTag CategoryLoCoObsolete

I’ll be in #ubuntu-locoteams on Satuday from 9am UTC – 4pm UTC and on Sunday from 10am UTC – 7pm UTC

New Conference packs for LoCo Teams

New Conference packs for LoCo Teams

I am very pleased to announce the new Conference packs for LoCo Teams, this came from a session at UDS-M in Brussels of this year but also was something we’ve been looking at for a while.  So it’s great to see an action item marked DONE (which makes bacon happy) but also has a positive effect for a lot of people.  We wanted to encourage teams to become and stay an approved LoCo Team and how we could possibly help. With that in mind we looked what was currently available, we talked to many people on what they thought might be helpful to them. When you attend an event you are representing your team and Ubuntu, so to present yourself in a professional manner we looked at things like a banner for teams.

The LoCo Council would like to thank Jane Silber for this as she was one of the people in the session who encouraged us to bring this action item to light and also we’ve had great help from Cezzaine Haugh and also Canonical for making this happen for all LoCo Teams, thank you very much!

The following has been approved for conference packs, and the wiki has been updated to reflect this

Once off gift to approved loco teams
When a LoCo Team is approved, part of what they need to do is nominate someone to receive and manage their LoCo Welcome Pack, which Canonical will provide.

  • x1 PVC banner – (one design only)
  • x1 Table cloth – (one design only)

Pack AApproved loco teams

  • x55 Lanyards
  • x2 caps
  • x25 mixed sticker sheets
  • x25 pin-badges – (These have yet to be produced)
  • x2 t-shirts (release t-shirt) for give-away/booth staff
  • x1 Official Ubuntu Book (prize/give-away) – (Only while stocks last, we will not produce anymore than the amount received after each release)
  • CDs (250 Desktop, 25 Server, 25 Kubuntu) – (To be requested via shipit as per usual process)

Pack BUnApproved loco teams

  • x25 mixed sticker sheets
  • x55 Lanyards
  • CDs (75 Desktop) – (To be requested via shipit as per usual process)
  • Name badges (Loco to produce their own)
  • Ubuntu leaflets (Loco to create a project to produce their own ideas)
  • Ubuntu video (Canonical to provide – will be available for d/l on wiki once completed)

Also discussed and decided last week on was:

  • Ubuntu leaflets – not relevant in most countries due to various languages. Loco council will introduce a community driven project for loco teams to design their own Ubuntu leaflets based on brand guidelines and access to assets. Assets for these can be found at: http://design.canonical.com/the-toolkit/ubuntu-brand-guidelines/
  • Name-badge designs - this is mainly when hosting their own events. Again Loco’s to create their own using assets and brand guidelines.
  • Ubuntu video to run on machines at events – Canonical is currently working on a generic Ubuntu video in English and a few other languages – this will be added to the wiki page once completed.
