Interview Notes:

QUESTION: Welcome Jussi and can you tell me a little about what the IRC Council is and what it does for the Ubuntu Community?  Can you tell me what your role on the Council is?  Does this differ from other roles or is every member of the councils responsibilities the same?

* – Wiki Page

QUESTION: How many members are there on the Ubuntu IRC Council?  How many ubuntu ops are there across the Ubuntu IRC Core Channels?  How much do you all interact with the freenode staff?

* – IRCC In Launchpad

#ubuntu-ops IRC Channel on (not for idling but for getting help when needed)

QUESTION: What do you see as the biggest advantage to the Ubuntu Community of having an Ubuntu IRC Council.

QUESTION: If people are new to Ubuntu and IRC what resources would you recommend they read? What IRC client do you recommend to new IRC Users?  Are there mentors available to people who want to learn more about being an op or just IRC in general?




#ubuntu-irc for asking various howto and topics concerning irc (can idle here)

QUESTION: Jussi when did you start getting involved with FOSS and was Ubuntu your 1st distribution?  If not what was and why?  When and why did you move to Ubuntu?
