Hiya Jim,

We had a full meeting last night. I enjoyed it.

I helped a bit with that installation last week, installing a daily
build of Ubuntu 11.04 that will be released at the end of April. It
was fun but we had some issues getting the soft keyboards working. We
mostly used a USB keyboard.  I didn't get a chance to see what
progress he made this week.

I uploaded new natty daily snapshots at pony.local/~grantbow for folks
at noisebridge.net to try if they feel adventurous. This version uses
a newer Unity Gnome v2.x shell (newer than the Unity version used for
the Ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition) as the default for the desktop
version. The netbook edition for Intel machines has been removed.
Upstart has some nice sounding features this release, moving further
away from older style init scripts. For information on other changes
in the upcoming Ubuntu version check out
