on this already

the information you need in order to get started with software 
development for the OLPC XO."
    o http://www.olpcaustria.org/mediawiki/index.php/Activity_handbook

* distribute/share activity
    o distribute Journal entries and activities
    o use ObjectChooser to choose the object to share
    o bemasc was not around to discuss his activity

* Message Board activity for each class/school
(some first ideas)
    o the idea is to have some way of providing a persistent message 
board without a school server or Internet access.
    o if you have a school server it could be a webpage on the school server
    o for example, every laptop could broadcast every message board note 
it's seen and the activity could know to collate them and remove duplicates
    o passing a USB stick with a portable mediawiki

* Disconnected backups
    o http://lists.laptop.org/pipermail/sugar/2008-February/004318.html

* Focus Bugs
    o Ridderman is working on focus bugs in Sugar/GTK 

* Meeting weekly?
    o We had a discussion whether the meeting should be weekly or not, 
For the moment we agreed to alternate and do big weeks where the meeting 
should be more general (people can get the big picture) and the small 
weeks mostly for core people. This week was a 'big' one - so next week 
will be a small one and so on and on.

* Meeting time
People are encouraged to vote for their preferred time of the meeting:
