19:03:41 <cmpahar> #topic General Program Update
19:04:06 <cmpahar> pierros, is here in order to give us some updates regarding the REMO program :)
19:04:12 <cmpahar> pierros, the floor is yours
19:04:17 <pierros> thanks cmpahar :)
19:04:31 <pierros> Reps have deployed a process lately on Keon phones
19:04:36 <pierros> https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/SOPs/Keon_Request
19:04:54 <pierros> Please follow the process if you would like to get access to a Keon phone (and you are a Rep)
19:05:15 <pierros> if you need a Keon phone and you can justify a request reach out to your local rep to facilitate a possible request
19:05:33 <pierros> eom for me :) any questions?
19:05:39 <Mad_maks> ?
19:06:27 <cmpahar> Mad_maks,
19:07:08 <Mad_maks> Do you mean that we can, as reps, ask for a phone for non reps?
19:07:40 <Mad_maks> eom
19:07:51 <pierros> Mad_maks: if there is a justified cause yes. e.g. a l10n (as those go through reps with approval by l10n team) or firefoxos launch country core team member
19:07:53 <pierros> eom
19:08:18 <cmpahar> any other questions regarding Keon Devices
19:08:24 <cmpahar> or the Remo project in general?
19:08:30 <uwanja> ?
19:08:34 <cmpahar> yes uwanja
19:09:05 <uwanja> There is an incubation space here in my country Kenya that was requesting for a Geeksphone and I was wondering whether Mozilla can facilitate a gadget for them. They host an array of gadgets running the other platforms. They use the form to give devs a chance to test their apps on the various platforms
19:09:36 <cmpahar> NOTICE: by mistake I provided you the link from our previous meeting. The link with tonight's agenda can be found at https://remo.etherpad.mozilla.org/regional-meetings-emea-06-2013
19:10:30 <pierros> uwanja: at this time we need to prioritize our requests as we are really sort on Keons.. I dont think that we can facilitate this at this moment :( sorry about that
19:10:32 <pierros> eom

19:36:23 <cmpahar> regarding Italy i dont know when is going to be released, sorry
19:36:24 <AlifiyahGanijee> ?
19:36:29 <cmpahar> yes FrancJP
19:36:39 <FrancJP> thanks cmpahar
19:36:54 <FrancJP> suggestion 1 for FirefoxOS appdays events: contact your local university
19:37:08 <FrancJP> they usually let to use the classrooms, for free
19:37:15 <cmpahar> FrancJP, +1
19:37:22 <FrancJP> and is a good spot to attract developers
19:37:35 <FrancJP> specially in the tech universities
19:37:46 <FrancJP> suggestion 2: try to reach local events
19:37:56 <FrancJP> and at least have a talk or a little workshop... or a booth
19:37:56 <AlifiyahGanijee> +1 FrancJP
19:38:06 <FrancJP> and be sure to have one or two keons
19:38:17 <FrancJP> people love to touch it, see it
19:38:28 <FrancJP> we have it more easy than ever as mozillians
19:38:40 <cmpahar> and be sure to have a STABLE/Working release on your Keon
19:38:52 <FrancJP> at least, we have a lot of participation in the last few months in spain ;)
19:39:13 <FrancJP> and final suggestion: don't loose the keon :P
19:39:15 <FrancJP> eof
19:39:18 <cmpahar> in addition there are a lot of resources about Keons from all of you guys.
19:39:34 <cmpahar> if you have written about your Keon
19:39:44 <cmpahar> please make sure to add your link to this etherpad:
19:39:45 <cmpahar> #link https://remo.etherpad.mozilla.org/keon-posts
19:39:56 <Ibrahima> ?
19:39:56 <cmpahar> yes AlifiyahGanijee
19:41:09 <cmpahar> AlifiyahGanijee, ?
19:41:18 <cmpahar> you wanted to say something
19:41:29 <AlifiyahGanijee> Yeah sorry
19:41:29 <AlifiyahGanijee> I just wanted to confirm, is the launching event different from the firefox OS Apps day?
19:41:54 <cmpahar> AlifiyahGanijee, good question
19:41:55 <AlifiyahGanijee> yeah, I actually wanted to ask if the launching event is different from Firefox OS Apps day
19:42:08 <cmpahar> depends
19:42:21 <FrancJP> !
19:42:35 <cmpahar> you can organize a Firefox OS Apps Day the dates that Firefox OS is being launched in your country
19:42:48 <cmpahar> that is going to be launching event
19:43:00 <cmpahar> but in general launching events
19:43:09 <AlifiyahGanijee> oh okay, reason why am asking is we already had a Firefox OS Mombasa Apps day event some time back
19:43:22 <cmpahar> aim in order to mobilize more Firefox OS/Mozilla lovers
19:43:27 <cmpahar> and engage them in the project
19:43:34 <cmpahar> making them spreading the word of Firefox OS
19:43:40 <AlifiyahGanijee> thanks, cool
19:43:50 <Prometheas> !
19:44:02 <bkerensa> How is european reps promoting firefox os?  Has any localized swag been produced yet?
19:44:08 <cmpahar> its ltedone
19:44:15 <cmpahar> wait wait guys
19:44:19 <cmpahar> lets keep the order
19:44:46 <cmpahar> the order is ltedone FrancJP , Prometheas , Ibrahima , FrancJP and Prometheas again :P
19:44:54 <cmpahar> ltedone, the floor is yours
19:45:10 <cmpahar> and then bkerensa is you :)
19:45:40 <cmpahar> ltedone, are you here?!
19:46:15 <cmpahar> please when I give you the floor, respond instantly and then take your time to write your question
19:46:22 <cmpahar> that saves time in order someone is away
19:46:28 <cmpahar> so FrancJP hit it!
19:46:34 <FrancJP> FirefoxOS Appday is a hack day, basically, that you can talk about the project at the beggining, and the hacking. The launch party will be "street actions", and local marketing campaigns, we have a few ideas already
19:47:00 <FrancJP> I wanted to appoint that while AlifiyahGanijee "speaks"
19:47:25 <cmpahar> Generally are marketing events for spreading the word of Firefox OS, indoor/outdoor wherever you can! :)
19:47:27 <FrancJP> you can use an appday as a launch party... but ideally, the launch party is more marketing actions
19:47:48 <FrancJP> eof
19:48:20 <cmpahar> thank you FrancJP for your inpuT :D
19:48:23 <AlifiyahGanijee> +1
