• Ubuntu IRC Council News

    Sometime ago I was elected to the Ubuntu IRC council. This has been a big step for me, up from regular ubuntu operator and contributor, to a governance role. So now it is time to start writing about what the IRC council is doing, and where and when things are happening.

    First up I’d like to mention the next IRCC meeting, coming up on 2 August, at 07:00 UTC, in #ubuntu-meeting. You can find the agenda for the meeting at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcTeam/IrcCouncil/MeetingAgenda – if you have an agenda item, please feel free to add it there.

    Second, Id like to mention the blueprint for a new bantracker and IRC operator helper features that Benjamin (Pici) has kindly popped up on launchpad- you can find it here: https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/bantrackertwo

    We would welcome as much community input for that as possible, so please, feel free to add suggestions and ideas to the mix.

    For those of you who don’t know us, the IRCC consists of the following people: jussi01 , Pici, Pricey, elky and nalioth.

    We look forward to seeing you all on Freenode/Ubuntu channels soon! :)

      There is presently no way for the average Ubuntu user to add a second hard disk after installation without being forced to sign on as root to access this new drive. This is a major glitch that will drive many potential Linux users back to Windows!

      There needs to be a simple user interface that makes it easy to ad a new hard drive and format it and mount it for use without being in root, and without being an expert!

      Hi Mark,

      While your issue may be correct, it is certainly something that is not in the scope of the IRCC to help with. The IRCC’s primary function is governance of the Ubuntu IRC space, making it a useful and enjoyable place to be. I suggest you file a bug on http://www.bugs.launchpad.net .
