*April 17, 2012 Meeting Minutes*

Less than 10 participants

Discussed ways to attract new developers.
- Suggestion to create a list (classified advertisement) that might be related to items in
Bugzilla that would describe what knowledge was needed, a time estimate and list a mentor
for help with this item.
- Thought was that we needed to show people with little history that they could easily contribute
and get involved and learn as they did 
- Attendance and participation in "Hacker" shows/events might be a good way to attract some
new talent

With 3.4 release coming soon discussion around messages to end users, developers ..
- Why should I upgrade to AOO 3.4 ... what's in it for me ( end user focused)
- What does the Apache license enable me to do with the code
   + End User - use it at home/ at work /make copies . give it to my friends .. use it at
school .. blog about it etc .
   + Developers - What does the apache license allow me to do .... make my own distro .. add
value .. include in something else ... create a custom version etc ..

General feeling that we need to identify and prepare material for Events/Conferences
 - Have material ready so local people can particpate
 - Find way to leverage existing Apache conferences to attract people already working in the
"Apache Way" to contribute to AOO

Team suggested the next call be in approx. 30 days to allow 3.4 to launch
