stpeterI must have missed the messages about today's meeting :(
stpeterbut I admit that I am behind on email
Nÿcono specific email, we just meet every two weeks, and note that down at each meeting
bearhaven't really been any messages - the schedule was decided a couple months ago
stpeterso I need to update the calendar, then
bearI have given up on the xsf calendar showing the meetings - they seem to appear and disappear on a regular basis
bearso added it to my personal one
stpeterthat helps, too
stpeterwe need a calendar-meister :)
stpeteror a bot
bearI speak ical/vcal and caldav - so could do that if shown where the files live
stpetercalendar updated through end of March
will.shewardi have missed a notice?
stpeterI invited Florian too
stpeterI need to depart in ~25 minutes for an appointment
will.shewarddo we have an agenda?
bearok, seems everyone is here except Jack
bearlet's start and make it a fast one then
stpeterwe need to post a trip report about the Summit
stpeterBTW I have updated the calendar through end of Q1
bearwas someone identified at the summit to do a summary email?
stpeterbear: I can do that, but not until tomorrow afternoon
stpeterI have some text ready for it, but pictures would be helpful
FlorianI'll look though the pictures I have
bearyou don't have to do it - if you want you can send info to the list and I can write up a post
will.shewardi have picture from the first 4/5 talks i think
FlorianI've got a few from the devroom and dinner
Florianand some at Cisco
bearnotes are here: http://typewith.me/nUc9JI5pv2
will.shewardcool, we should do seperate posts on fosdem and summit?
stpeterthe more posts the merrier
stpeteras I said, I have content for the Summit / XMPP WG post, just need to paste it into a post
stpeterbut won't have time probably until tomorrow afternoon
stpeterIESG commitments between now and then
stpeterany volunteers for FOSDEM post?
will.shewardi'll do that if you like
stpeterwe can take that to the commteam anyway
bearwe could get a couple small "here are some photos" posts now and have the more lengthy one when you are ready
stpeterwill.sheward: that would be beautiful
will.shewardi'll write up something for fosdem and share with the commteam for edits
stpeterI commit to making the Summit / XMPP WG post by end of day Friday
will.shewardme - probably the weekend
beark, details can be hashed out on list
stpeterwe had some discussion in the Council meeting just now
bearnext item GSoC
stpeterdo we see any reason not to participate?
stpeterwe'll need volunteers to admin, mentor, etc.
stpeterI think we could have more projects participating this time
KevI'm here for my usual roles.
stpeterI think we should require an interop report from each student so that we can improve the specs if needed
Kevstpeter: Well, a general 'end report', I think.
KevThere are other things that're useful than interop, as well.
stpeterKev: last time we wanted feedback on specs, but it was hard to get -- just a few messages posted in a chatroom
KevI saw another org post this in the GSoC channel earlier, and I think we should aim to come up with something similar to the prologue as a 'mission statement' we can agree on - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YpQjl8pDTztxlk1eRDgheHq-17vMEcNt3qUCypioW_g/edit?hl=en&pli=1#
Kevstpeter: Yes, an exit report sounds good.
KevThey have to fill one of these out for Google anyway, we can require our own.
stpeterso is the Board on board?
KevI'm more than happy to help with admin again, but I'd quite like Board to appoint someone responsible so I've got someone to bash over the head if stuff doesn't get done :)
stpeterso we'll round up the usual suspects and start to organize on the email@example.com list
KevAnd this should happen very soon.
will.shewardi can probably help out with admin
KevApplications are pretty soon now, and we should have pages up in advance of that.
KevOrg applications, that is.
bearI have offered to help as org admin again
Kevwill.sheward: I gather bear's up for admin as well.
will.shewardKev: cool, lets draw up a task list and split
KevI'd rather one of you was 'main' admin and I just act as fill-in, because I don't want to do everything or have responsibility :D
will.shewardthat'd be bear (as big boss) me as minion
bearthe gathering of project ideas is the hardest part at this phase
Kevbear: Yes. I'm happy to help with that. Swift will probably propose some, and Simon's approached me about BuddyCloud ones under the XSF umbrella as well.
bearok, unless someone really doesn't like the idea of me as admin - let's go with that and I'll post to firstname.lastname@example.org to start organizing
bearwith will as co-admin
KevThe YafaRay post about being concentrating on gathering new contributers, rather than specific throwaway tasks, rang true with me.
KevDid I just get demoted? Cool.
stpeterOK I have another 10 minutes here
Floriannext topic then?
bearkev - I think you are master-of-mentors
bearstpeter - do we have a list of sponsors who have paid?
stpeterwe have a list of dinner sponsors (need to mention them in the Summit post)
stpeterwe also have a short list of org sponsors
will.shewardwhich will replace the existing list v.soon
stpeterbut at this point it's only Voxeo (we need a page about them!) and USSHC
stpeterI have promised to work on a proposal to ISOC (Internet Society)
bearI've seen email about one new sponsor but we are still waiting for someone to create a page item for them? do we know who brought Voxeo on board?
stpeterso I will run that by the Board when I have a draft
FlorianI'll get i touch about the page with them
will.shewardI'll sort the voxeo page when florian has the basic info
will.shewardalso, Florian, I need a reciept/invoice thing for the dinner sponsorship
bearCan you two also draft a post thanking the dinner sponsors with the list from stpeter about who gave?
stpeteryes, Florian and I can work on that
will.shewardphew - was about to volunteer
luca tagliaferrihas left
stpeterI need to make thank-you notes (receipts) for all of them, anyway
beardo you want to report on finances for next meeting or will you need more time (stpeter)
stpetertomorrow afternoon or Friday for that :)
stpeteras I said, the basic finance report is that we have a little less than $9000 in the bank, but I need more time to provide details
stpeterwe actually made money on the summit ;-)
bearcool - then I don't have to budget for this year's oscon summit with the wife :)
stpeterwe also have $2k on the way from GSoC 2010 IIRC
Florianshould we move on to Summit #11?
stpeterand as mentioned we're going to seek out more sponsors this year
stpeteroh, another topic (for next meeting) is the XMPP validator idea, but see members@ list for discussion
bearI am going to be going this year for the full oscon so I can help organize summit 11
stpeterdo we want to hold a north american summit (#11) this year? last year didn't go so well, but we can and should put more effort in this year, I think
FlorianI'd love to organize it as it looks like I'll be attending :)
bear:) - last year's was done very last minute
stpeterI won't be there the whole time because I will travel to Quebec City the following week for the IETF meeting
stpeterso if we're committed, we can post about it next week (after the FOSDEM / Summit posts) and I will contact my friends at O'Reilly about a room
bearyes, we can talk more details next meeting
stpeterany other busines?
Floriannot from my end
beardo you have anything before you have to leave?
stpeterI don't have anything further here
beartakes the lack of new items as a sign to bang the gavel
stpeterwe have a meeting 2 weeks from now
stpeterit should be in the calendar
stpeterlet's send a reminder to the members@ list the day before, too
stpeterif we remember :)
bearif that is needed then I will do that as part of the pre-meeting prep work I do
stpeternot absolutely necessary
stpeterbut it's good to keep the membership in the loop
