2009.05.18 Meeting Notes


Davis Public Library

Project Reports

  • Installfests — Thanks to help from the CS Club at UC Davis, LUGOD will be holding an Installfest on Saturday, May 30th from 10am to 4pm. We'll be at Kemper Hall again, but this time in Room 1003 (a conference room for the Dean of the School of Engineering), which should have good wired and wireless networking. RSVP if you'd like to attend.
  • LERT — No news.
  • Library — We have still not shipped books that CSU Bakersfield wants. Once we do that, more books will be made available to the general membership, and brought to meetings. Unfortunately, we've missed a window of opportunity where the CSU had enough budget for paying shipping, so someone from faculty may need to pay for it, unless we can deliver it in person.

Other Business

  • Whole Earth Festival - WEF took place May 10-12 at UC Davis. Nick and Alex ran a LUGOD booth on Saturday only, since noone else was available to staff at other times.
  • CommunityOne Conference & OSCON - It's possible for LUGOD (either alone, or with other LUGs) to get a ".org booth" at both the CommunityOne Conference (which takes place simultaneously with Sun's JavaOne) in San Francisco on June 1st-3rd, and O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON) in San Jose, July 20th-24th. Noone responded regarding CommunityOne, so Bill has decided to skip that, but is still interested in LUGOD attending OSCON. Grant Bowman, from the Ubuntu California Team, said we could share a table with them, if needed. Bill is going to ping other LUGs in the Bay Area to see if a multi-LUG booth could be put together. If you have an opinion, or would like to offer to help organize and/or staff a booth, please post a note to LUGOD's 'vox-outreach' mailing list.
  • Venue needed - The Davis branch of the Yolo County Library will be undergoing renovation soon.
  • News — Cathy Malmrose of ZaReasons peaks at BALUG tomorrow night.
  • Financial Report — $14.00 in voluntary dues were collected.


  • Todd Trichler, Senior Principal Product Manager at Oracle Technology Network, discussed a variety of things the Oracle Linux Engineering Team has been working on. He also demonstrated Oracle's VM Server, and demonstrated installing it on a PC.
