  38. bear slightly confused
  39. Nÿco today...
  40. Nÿco ready?
  41. bear yes
  42. Nÿco http://typewith.me/nUc9JI5pv2
  43. stpeter I must have missed the messages about today's meeting :(
  44. stpeter but I admit that I am behind on email
  45. Nÿco no specific email, we just meet every two weeks, and note that down at each meeting
  46. bear haven't really been any messages - the schedule was decided a couple months ago
  47. stpeter ah
  48. stpeter so I need to update the calendar, then
  49. bear I have given up on the xsf calendar showing the meetings - they seem to appear and disappear on a regular basis
  50. bear so added it to my personal one
  51. stpeter that helps, too
  52. stpeter we need a calendar-meister :)
  53. stpeter or a bot
  54. bear I speak ical/vcal and caldav - so could do that if shown where the files live
  55. stpeter calendar updated through end of March
  56. will.sheward has joined
  57. bear cool
  58. will.sheward i have missed a notice?
  59. stpeter I invited Florian too
  60. Florian has joined
  61. Florian hi
  62. stpeter I need to depart in ~25 minutes for an appointment
  63. will.sheward do we have an agenda?
  64. bear yes
  65. bear ok, seems everyone is here except Jack
  66. bear let's start and make it a fast one then
  67. Florian ok :)
  68. jack has joined
  69. stpeter we need to post a trip report about the Summit
  70. jack hi all
  71. stpeter BTW I have updated the calendar through end of Q1
  72. bear was someone identified at the summit to do a summary email?
  73. stpeter bear: I can do that, but not until tomorrow afternoon
  74. stpeter I have some text ready for it, but pictures would be helpful
  75. Florian I'll look though the pictures I have
  76. bear you don't have to do it - if you want you can send info to the list and I can write up a post
  77. will.sheward i have picture from the first 4/5 talks i think
  78. Florian I've got a few from the devroom and dinner
  79. Florian and some at Cisco
  80. stpeter cool
  81. bear notes are here: http://typewith.me/nUc9JI5pv2
  82. stpeter right
  83. will.sheward cool, we should do seperate posts on fosdem and summit?
  84. bear thanks Nyco
  85. stpeter the more posts the merrier
  86. Florian yup :)
  87. stpeter as I said, I have content for the Summit / XMPP WG post, just need to paste it into a post
  88. stpeter but won't have time probably until tomorrow afternoon
  89. stpeter IESG commitments between now and then
  90. stpeter any volunteers for FOSDEM post?
  91. will.sheward i'll do that if you like
  92. stpeter we can take that to the commteam anyway
  93. bear we could get a couple small "here are some photos" posts now and have the more lengthy one when you are ready
  94. stpeter will.sheward: that would be beautiful
  95. will.sheward i'll write up something for fosdem and share with the commteam for edits
  96. stpeter I commit to making the Summit / XMPP WG post by end of day Friday
  97. will.sheward me - probably the weekend
  98. Florian great :)
  99. stpeter ok
  100. bear k, details can be hashed out on list
  101. stpeter GSOC?
  102. stpeter right
  103. stpeter we had some discussion in the Council meeting just now
  104. bear next item GSoC
  105. Tobias yay..GSoC :)
  106. stpeter do we see any reason not to participate?
  107. stpeter we'll need volunteers to admin, mentor, etc.
  108. stpeter I think we could have more projects participating this time
  109. Kev I'm here for my usual roles.
  110. stpeter I think we should require an interop report from each student so that we can improve the specs if needed
  111. Tobias good idea
  112. Kev stpeter: Well, a general 'end report', I think.
  113. Kev There are other things that're useful than interop, as well.
  114. stpeter Kev: last time we wanted feedback on specs, but it was hard to get -- just a few messages posted in a chatroom
  115. Kev I 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#
  116. stpeter +1
  117. Kev stpeter: Yes, an exit report sounds good.
  118. stpeter sure
  119. Kev They have to fill one of these out for Google anyway, we can require our own.
  120. stpeter nods
  121. stpeter so is the Board on board?
  122. Florian yup :)
  123. will.sheward yes
  124. bear yes
  125. stpeter ok!
  126. Kev I'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 :)
  127. stpeter so we'll round up the usual suspects and start to organize on the gsoc@xmpp.org list
  128. stpeter heh
  129. Kev And this should happen very soon.
  130. will.sheward i can probably help out with admin
  131. Kev Applications are pretty soon now, and we should have pages up in advance of that.
  132. Kev Org applications, that is.
  133. bear I have offered to help as org admin again
  134. Kev will.sheward: I gather bear's up for admin as well.
  135. will.sheward Kev: cool, lets draw up a task list and split
  136. will.sheward it
  137. Kev I'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
  138. will.sheward that'd be bear (as big boss) me as minion
  139. bear the gathering of project ideas is the hardest part at this phase
  140. Kev bear: 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.
  141. bear ok, unless someone really doesn't like the idea of me as admin - let's go with that and I'll post to gsoc@xmpp.org to start organizing
  142. bear with will as co-admin
  143. Kev The YafaRay post about being concentrating on gathering new contributers, rather than specific throwaway tasks, rang true with me.
  144. Kev Did I just get demoted? Cool.
  145. stpeter OK I have another 10 minutes here
  146. Florian next topic then?
  147. bear kev - I think you are master-of-mentors
  148. bear stpeter - do we have a list of sponsors who have paid?
  149. stpeter we have a list of dinner sponsors (need to mention them in the Summit post)
  150. stpeter we also have a short list of org sponsors
  151. will.sheward which will replace the existing list v.soon
  152. stpeter but at this point it's only Voxeo (we need a page about them!) and USSHC
  153. stpeter I have promised to work on a proposal to ISOC (Internet Society)
  154. bear I'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?
  155. stpeter so I will run that by the Board when I have a draft
  156. Florian I'll get i touch about the page with them
  157. will.sheward I'll sort the voxeo page when florian has the basic info
  158. stpeter ok
  159. will.sheward also, Florian, I need a reciept/invoice thing for the dinner sponsorship
  160. bear Can you two also draft a post thanking the dinner sponsors with the list from stpeter about who gave?
  161. stpeter yes, Florian and I can work on that
  162. will.sheward phew - was about to volunteer
  163. stpeter heh
  164. luca tagliaferri has left
  165. stpeter I need to make thank-you notes (receipts) for all of them, anyway
  166. bear do you want to report on finances for next meeting or will you need more time (stpeter)
  167. stpeter tomorrow afternoon or Friday for that :)
  168. stpeter as 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
  169. stpeter we actually made money on the summit ;-)
  170. will.sheward refund!
  171. stpeter haha
  172. Florian lol
  173. bear cool - then I don't have to budget for this year's oscon summit with the wife :)
  174. stpeter we also have $2k on the way from GSoC 2010 IIRC
  175. Florian :)
  176. Florian should we move on to Summit #11?
  177. bear summit #11
  178. stpeter and as mentioned we're going to seek out more sponsors this year
  179. stpeter yes
  180. stpeter oh, another topic (for next meeting) is the XMPP validator idea, but see members@ list for discussion
  181. bear I am going to be going this year for the full oscon so I can help organize summit 11
  182. stpeter do 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
  183. stpeter bear: cool
  184. Florian I'd love to organize it as it looks like I'll be attending :)
  185. bear :) - last year's was done very last minute
  186. stpeter I won't be there the whole time because I will travel to Quebec City the following week for the IETF meeting
  187. stpeter nod
  188. stpeter so 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
  189. Florian cool
  190. bear yes, we can talk more details next meeting
  191. stpeter ok
  192. stpeter excellent
  193. stpeter any other busines?
  194. Florian not from my end
  195. bear do you have anything before you have to leave?
  196. stpeter I don't have anything further here
  197. will.sheward me neither
  198. Tobias has left
  199. bear takes the lack of new items as a sign to bang the gavel
  200. stpeter ok great
  201. stpeter we have a meeting 2 weeks from now
  202. stpeter it should be in the calendar
  203. Florian great
  204. stpeter let's send a reminder to the members@ list the day before, too
  205. stpeter if we remember :)
  206. bear if that is needed then I will do that as part of the pre-meeting prep work I do
  207. stpeter not absolutely necessary
  208. stpeter but it's good to keep the membership in the loop
  209. stpeter anyway, gotta run
  210. stpeter bbiab
