In today's community news we discuss the happenings in the HPR community. On the mumble were Dave Morriss and Ken Fallon, while we were joined by Pokey and NYBill from the North East Linux Fest. During the show we also heard from Bruce Patterson formally of the Distro weekly podcast. x1101 a HPR listener and soon to be new contributor and finally Paul from paul dot com Paul's Security Weekly.
There were no new hosts this month.
Running out of shows

Mailing List discussions
Policy decisions surrounding HPR are taken by the community as a whole. This discussion takes place on the Mail List which is open to all HPR listeners and contributors. The discussions are open and available on the Gmane archive.
Discussed this month was:
In a discussion started by Dave Morris. Some felt that the content was getting stale, and keeping shows for 2 years or even 3 months was too long. Others felt that these shows were contributed with the purpose of been used in an emergency and therefore should be timeless.
Eventually it was left to each of the contributors that had shows in the backup queue to release them, or to set them as emergency shows. The website has been updated to reflect this change.
The next audiobook is Shaman Tales Book 1: South Coast by Nathan Lowell. It's available on http://podiobooks.com/title/shaman-tales-1-south-coast/.

Usefulness of the Community News Show/Reserved Slot
Last month we asked if the community news should continue - and yes it should. We are open to suggestions on how to improve it.
It was also agreed to allow this show to be reserved.
