21:40:11 <   schiste > yes please go on :)
21:40:48 < Wiki_Blue > a) wikimania....email was sent out to press list....however, it would be nice if comproj members: a) start pitching in their own countires
21:41:10 < Wiki_Blue > and b) it would be nice to concentrate and make email about how to participate virtually
21:41:17 < Wiki_Blue > can someone help with b?
21:41:27 < Wiki_Blue > (to send another email maybe a week before)
21:41:35 <   schiste > participate to CPG?

21:41:51 <   schiste > ok
21:42:21 < Wiki_Blue > second, honeslty, i've said this before, comproj has kicked butt in the last weeks
21:42:34 < Wiki_Blue > and now we have some foundational tools thanks to you guys so....
21:42:54 <   schiste > I won't have time before monday, but then I think I could help on that
21:43:06 < Wiki_Blue > 2) Can we start brainstorming for future, and maybe start writing a 2007-2008 plan, and
21:43:21 < Wiki_Blue > start going around the projects, asking them what htey need or what cool projects they are working on
21:43:34 < Wiki_Blue > like ...September is Wiktionary month
21:43:47 < Wiki_Blue > and we create one project that month to help publisize wiktionary
21:43:57 < Wiki_Blue > so we are mroe organized and focused?
21:43:58 <  bastique > Wikibooks
21:44:03 <  bastique > :)
21:44:06 < Wiki_Blue > def.
21:44:15 <  bastique > cross language
21:44:41 < Wiki_Blue > i can start a calendar on comproj page tomorrow
21:44:51 < Wiki_Blue > and if people can put ideas, that would be great
21:44:57 <   schiste > That'd be neat
21:45:19 < Wiki_Blue > lastly, it just occured to me that maybe it would be cool to have a comproj rep that is responsible for
21:45:20 <  bastique > And use the list
21:45:39 < Wiki_Blue > contacting chapters, keeping in touch with them, checking up if they need help, etc
21:45:46 < Wiki_Blue > thats all
21:46:02 <  bastique > Exactly
21:46:44 <    LeBron > Mmh, would it not impinge on the ChapCom?
21:47:04 <   schiste > who's still active in there apart from delphine?
21:47:17 < Wiki_Blue > well, i would suggest htis person get in touch with delphine as well
21:47:43 <   schiste > LeBron:  can do that !
21:47:56 < Wiki_Blue > just so they know we are here..and available
21:48:05 < Wiki_Blue > and ready to help with any com projects they may have
21:48:05 <    LeBron > Errr. Me ?
21:48:10 <   schiste > ^^
21:48:11 < Wiki_Blue > lol
21:48:23 < Wiki_Blue > we don't have to decide right now
21:48:26 < Wiki_Blue > but i think it would be nice
21:48:55 <   schiste > ok
21:49:06 < Wiki_Blue > anyone else?
21:49:36 <  bastique > seanw has been busy with his IRC type duties
21:49:44 <   schiste > I'm trying to make a LSS revival, but well have no time to handle it alone
21:49:51 <  bastique > LSS ?
21:49:56 <  bastique > Is that some Mormon thing?
21:50:06 <   schiste > http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/LSS
21:50:33 <   schiste > no, its a new experimental drug to increase foundation revenue
21:50:39 < Wiki_Blue > ohh thats a big project
21:50:40 < Wiki_Blue > LMAO
21:50:41 <  bastique > oh
21:51:00 <  bastique > It's a lot of work
21:51:03 <   schiste > yes
21:51:12 < Wiki_Blue > i guess you've asked for help already?
21:51:22 <   schiste > yes
21:51:26 <   schiste > and had none
21:52:01 < Wiki_Blue > you know
21:52:06 < Wiki_Blue > this is a bit insane
21:52:07 <    LeBron > Well i think people stopped helping when they realized most people read English.
21:52:10 < Wiki_Blue > but going with this...
21:52:19 < Wiki_Blue > meta...could def. need  some structuring and might help with this
21:52:28 < Wiki_Blue > if people knew there was an easy place to post things quickly
21:52:31 <   schiste > LeBron:  hmmm well seeing the "Feedback" reactions
21:52:43 <   schiste > I think people don't care about foundation
21:52:53 <   schiste > that's partly why I didn't continue
21:52:56 <    LeBron > When i was doing the translation for fr: it seems only 3 people read it.
21:52:58 < Platonide > LSS should use the gmane links
21:53:08 < Platonide > they are more stable
21:53:16 <  bastique > They call it troll-l
21:55:49 < Wiki_Blue > kay is that all?
21:56:03 <   schiste > think so
21:56:05 < Wiki_Blue > i'll post summary of this meeting
21:56:08 < Wiki_Blue > on comproj
