Committee Reports

  • UGC
    • Nothing has happenned.
    • We are still waiting on news from Shopify about their new space: Timing, Size, Accessibility, Availability. Latest news is they move in September.
    • The inclination is to bump it until next year to make sure we have a venue for it and sufficient lead time to notify people.

  • L3GO
    • 5 people showed up for Monday June 9th meeting.
    • There is now a mailing list with 6 people on it.
    • There are still people joining the meetup group, up to 62 people.
    • There is still no web site, but RGB had briefly asked Ian ward about it and he gave me another choice of framework I had to learn at least a bit about before making a decision.
    • Scott asked if we had a graphic yet. No, but this is a good point. aalib brick? L3GO in lego font?
    • Next meetup is during OLS, July 14th or 15th. Make it a BOFS?
    • August meetup is 11th or 12th, RGB out of town, IEGorman will host.
    • Add l3go mailing list to list wiki page, even add http://oclug.on.ca/mailman/listinfo/
