Vanaryonstpeter, I mailed you the XML file for the microblogging XEP (I updated everything needed in the XEP headers), hope it is okay ;)
stpeterhi Vanaryon, yes I saw that
VanaryonWe are discussing - in our project - about a strong need for microblogging: a @user feature (mainly for notifications, and notices tracking), we might be submitting some other XEP-0277 updates in the future ;)

stpeterI thought so :)
KevSo says my calendar.
will.shewardIt's not in the calendar but I think we said we'd have one today
KevI see it in the calendar.
stpeteras do I
will.shewardSo, I can't read a calendar, no surprise :-)
KevBear was there a few minutes ago when I pinged him about GSoC things.
stpetermaybe he stepped away
bearsorry - traffic - back-hoe operator decided to drive his rig into the hole he was filling instead of putting dirt into it
bearthe only item I know of is gsoc followup and one other thing (/me digs thru notes)
stpeterwe also have http://tracker.xmpp.org/browse/TRADEMARKS-1 and http://tracker.xmpp.org/browse/TRADEMARKS-2
will.shewardI should mention that my trying to do the sponsors stuff on the site caused Athena to explode.
bearso the trademark and gsoc are what I can see as needing discussion
stpeterwe'll plan for that :P
stpeterI have only 2 trademark applications right now
stpeterI was expecting a third but it hasn't come in yet
bearstarts editing http://typewith.me/SVrlCVhbyQ
stpeterI invited Jack
Neustradamuswill.sheward: have you think at me ? :D
stpeterI don't see Nÿco online
stpeterFlorian appears to be here but no activity from him in the room :)
will.shewardInsert obvious student joke here
stpeterreads http://typewith.me/SVrlCVhbyQ instead of this room
beari'm typing ahead in the document while waiting :)
bearshall we start?
stpeterI pinged Jack
bearok, gsoc update
bear - we have 7 slots but only good activity on 4 of them - the other 3 we have a deadline of tonight for mentor/student response or we will toss them back to the pool
- duplication process starts today and ends in IRC discussion Friday
bearkev may have more info but that's it in a nutshell
will.shewardThat seems clear enough
bearso far we have no duplicates - so friday will be easy(ish)
Kev(There are, I think, more than 4 good proposals, but several are for Swift, and we only have mentoring capacity for two)
stpeterah, now I remember the third trademark licensing application -- I'll add that one soon
will.shewardOnly 2 in total or 2 suitable as swift mentors?
Kevwill.sheward: Remko and I can each mentor one student. So even if the XSF has several good Swift proposals (and it has), we have to only accept two.
KevOther projects seem to have fewer good proposals than mentoring capacity.
bearadds the note that website update was scuttled because of hardware issues
will.shewardThat's my excuse, yes
bearconsider myself the bad habit enabler ;)
KevI have AOB about that, btw.
beardo you want to bring that up now?
beark, anything else about gsoc?
KevCan do - just that athena is, to quote Edwin, 'a ticking timebomb'. Iteam is coming up with a rough plan to start mirroring the website so Bad Things can't happen again, probably to the machine Florian is currently donating over in Flosoft. We are also likely to ask Board to find some money, or some sponsor to replace the hardware (athena) in the bunker.
KevJust as a heads-up.
KevThis way we'd have one machine in the usual place, and one machine over in Europe for hosting the website.
will.shewardTicking is ok, it's when it stops we have a problem
Kevwill.sheward: Like Friday, you mean?
stpeterhaving things in different places seems sensible
Kevstpeter: Picasso agrees :)
beardo we know what the load is for current athena so we can get a suitable device at flosoft?
stpeterit's not clear to me if we need a dedicated machine for websites or whether that could be hosted virtually
KevOr would agree, rather.
Kevbear: The point being we don't want to replace athena with a machine at Flosoft. We want new hardware.
KevThen we'd mirror to the box we already have at Flosoft :)
bearI was just talking about what parameters would be required for cpu and disk
KevAthena is ooooold, I imagine any modern system would cope with the base website.
beari.e. is it a monster box that has tons of page hits or can we do with a virtual machine?
KevThe addons like the Atlassian stuff is another matter.
Florianlooking at the machine .. any Core CPU ... with redundant HDDs
beark, then we could have a master with replicated mysql on the public facing frontend
bearbut it sounds like iteam has that in hand
KevNot really - we're just starting discussing stuff. It was a heads-up largely so no-one gets surprised if we ask for a new server in a while.
Kev(Or in case we ask in a while and someone says "Oh, I was chatting to HP the other day, if only I knew!")
will.shewardIf we find a machine somewhere, we will let you know
bearcan we get iteam to give a report by next board meeting (or a future one)
stpeterok I posted the trademark applications to the Board list
stpeterI'll see what I can do about sourcing a machine
stpeterI do have some contacts at HP
stpeterand someone at Dell just asked for a password reset at jabber.org :)
will.shewardThere will no be short break from me while I fail to find a seat on my train
bearthat's one heck of a processing fee ;)
stpeterBTW I did IM with Jack and he is on a phone call that he can't pull away from
bearI'll email iteam asking if they could summarize what the issue is and what the plan will be
Kevbear: Right, we'll get that done eventually :)
stpeterhttp://xmpp.org/about-xmpp/xsf/jabber-trademark/pending-applications/ updated too
bearok, at 30 minutes past - anything else need chewing on?
Floriannot from my end
Florian2 weeks from now?
FlorianTrademark stuff on the list?
bearif we follow the original original schedule - it's next week - but i'm good for 2 weeks
beargsoc, trademark and athena followup?
stpeternext week I can join from the airport, two weeks from now I'll be on a plane
will.shewardThat's a heck of a boarding queue
stpeters/can/might be able to/ :)
bearlet's do a quick one next week
stpeterupdates the calendar
bearany objections to next week?
KevI have no objections. I'm not on Board, though :)
bearthanks all for good meeting!
will.shewardSee you all next week
Floriangreat .. cyall later :)
stpetercalendars updated for Board and Council
stpeterno, thank you :)
stpetergoing AFK for a bit to finish reviewing the vCard4 specs
bearkev - can we contact waqas to hash this out before our deadline?
KevI am doing so at the moment, in fact.
bearI don't see him in jdev
bearoh - perfect - then let me get out of your way
