> Hi all,

Last night myself and Zulfiqar attended a Google Hangout with several members of the Ubuntu LoCo Council.

This is the first step in a process to bring us all closer together and to help facilitate a merging so that there can be a unified and stronger LoCo in the UAE.  As a start I urge all members wanting to continue the cause of promoting free and open source software via activities in the Ubuntu LoCo to join in on the following face to face meeting if possible (details will be made available later in the month) as well as an agreed IRC meeting also to happen soon.

We have two diverse groups that has been striving to achieve similar goals but in two different ways. In time I am sure the LoCo will find the optimum way to go ahead that will satisfy the unique needs of its members.

We will be having a follow up session with the LoCo Council in about a month (depending on how the holidays fall and availability etc.) and it is my hope that we will be able to report positively on progress towards our goal of unification.
