Hi All,

So it looks like we have at least 5 people from North America who are
interested in participating so I say let's do it.

Date: August 2nd, 2013
Time: 1500 (EST) so for those on the west coast we're talking Noon :) If I must I'll translate that to GMT/UTC but....I seem to get that wrong often ;)
Well 1300GMT is 9 here, so 1500EST is later-o-clock GMT, right?

@Robinson - can we get a tentative agenda going - you and I can give an update and maybe get a few things together that we could use help with - see
if we can get some volunteers to help us with some of the load :)
Yep, yep.


For anyone thinking about joining - please do - we're a friendly bunch, if we could pop open a beer in a pub and do it live we would but distance prevents this so as a second best.... feel free to have a beer on hangout,
it'll be casual ;)
Page appropriately themed...


AlthoughI am in the USA, I do not know if I would be a part of the "chat".

I am not a developer and I have noreal skill in promoting developers to be part of the LO system.

I do support the "cause" and do what I can towards that. But any live chat is not something I will do, since after 3 strokes it is hard to type quickly. It can take 10-20 minutes to just type an email to people that is only a few paragraph long.

Video chatting never worked on my end, though I have tried.

This is not a developer chat at all - I have very very limited skills in terms of development - Quality Assurance is about testing the product, managing bugzilla and providing a medium for which user complaints/suggestions reach developers. So I encourage you to join - I've seen you quite often on the user channel and you are very very helpful and known in the community - if you have the time please call in to talkyoo with a cell phone or landline.


Sorry, but that was what I got when I first saw the emails. You wanted to get more people on this side of the pond involved in developing LO and other open source packages.

"on the user channel"?
Do you mean the email lists? If not, then I do not know who it would be, since I rarely use "chat" for anything, along with Twitter or Facebook.

To be honest, I am not comfortable calling in an "talkyou" or any live option. After 3 strokes, it can be difficult sometimes to get the "proper words out". When I am face to face, using a wheeled-walker or wheelchair, people are more "understanding" when I have troubles with my speech pattern. They are more willing to "wait" for me to get the words out, than most people I have dealt with over the phone lines. That is why I do most of my communicating via email where I can pause for the words and/or edit them so I get the meaning of the words out even if not all the "right" words.

To be honest, some days I can barely speak "understandably" and/or type 3 letters in a row correctly[let alone the needed words]. That is what I have to deal with, and am very lucky that I have that much, since I lost a lot of my memory with the 1st and 2nd of the 3 strokes.

No worries at all - if you ever want to call in and just listen - no need to say a single word and you can get a sense of how QA works on the project. We've had people do this before.

Warm Regards,
