Please remove inactive members

Asked by Nizar Kerkeni on 2008-09-10

After our team approval we decided to have a new structure four our launchpad teams. So the ubuntu-tn team ( ) will be reserved to the management committee and the ubuntu-tn-users ( ) will be open for all Tunisians.
So we would like to remove all inactive members in ubuntu-tn team ( ) as most of them are now on the other team.
Thanks in advance.

Barry, can you get the ~ubuntu-tn team renamed and removed for us? It has a mailing list attached to it, which means I can't directly.

"Inactive members" actually means they are removed -- that's just the way we track history (so you can see who has been a user in the past). So you don't need to worry about that.

Cool logo, by the way!

Thanks Christian,
It's because I would to track the correct history that I asked for this. In fact the ubuntu-tn team status was changed from open team to supervised team reserved for management committee. So actually all inactive members in ubuntu-tn wasn't members of the management committee. And we will keep track of them in ubuntu-tn-users team.

But the correct history is that those people were originally members of that team. You should have renamed the existing team to -users and created a new one if you wanted a fresh start.

Perhaps !! but now it's too late :)

Indeed, it is. I suggest you create a new team and put the actual members you want to be present in them; I'll take care of removing the previous team; it's a bit of work on your end but there is currently no infrastructure to remove team members and I think it's a bit risky to hack it in this case.

Thanks Christian
hmm..., if I understand
1) I create a new team
2) you remove the old one
3) I rename the new team with the old name
is it correct ?
in that case I will discuss this issue with management committee members.

Christian Reis (kiko) said : #7

Yep, that's correct.

Hello Christian,
I got the green light from the team to proceed to the clean-up
The new temporary team is here :
So you can delete the old one :
After that I will rename the new one to have the correct name.

I've purged the mailing list, so you should be able to rename the team now.

Nizar Kerkeni (nizarus) said : #10

the old team is actually renamed to ubuntu-tn-old ( and can be removed
