  28. Florian has left
  29. Florian hey guys
  30. bear hello
  31. Florian just FYI ... my internet connection is on the fritz
  32. Florian so I'll have disconnects / reconnects
  33. bear oh poo - I was supposed to email the agenda the *night* before
  34. bear sighs
  35. stpeter prepares to join another meeting in parallel
  36. will.sheward has joined
  37. bear makes a note to add a scheduled item to his todo for this moving forward
  38. bear http://typewith.me/WR6mmFq3jN
  39. bear sees that it's 1700
  40. stpeter yep
  41. bear me, you, florian and will
  42. stpeter I pinged Jack
  43. bear forgets what the quorum number is
  44. stpeter I think you have a quorum
  45. stpeter 3 of 5
  46. bear coolness
  47. bear will give jack a couple more minutes
  48. stpeter ok
  49. bear anyone have anything to add to the agenda
  50. stpeter well, we need to have a membership meeting to vote on people who have applied or re-applied, and hold yearly elections for the Board and the Council
  51. Florian nope
  52. bear that means we need to email the members about board/council candidates
  53. stpeter and probably recruit people to stand for election
  54. bear my hunch is that this will be a straw poll on how active the current member base is
  55. stpeter bear: good point
  56. Florian yeah
  57. bear k, shall we bang the gavel and proceed?
  58. stpeter I think so
  59. bear bangs the gavel
  60. stpeter I pinged Jack via email so he might not have noticed
  61. bear agenda bashing - anything else to add?
  62. Florian not from me
  63. stpeter nope
  64. bear k, board meeting changes - did we decide on weekly or bi?
  65. Florian +1 for weekly
  66. stpeter WFM
  67. bear k, let me draft an email to the board list to confirm weekly is ok
  68. bear it would seem that not changing the time makes sense if it's weekly
  69. bear as that allows for a council+board double-play
  70. stpeter I don't have a strong preference on the time
  71. stpeter nod
  72. Florian the current times WFM
  73. bear k, then i will just get my shit squared off and make it WFM
  74. stpeter heh
  75. bear k, should we draft in the typewithme notes an email now about membership meeting - or will the secretary handle it?
  76. Florian eh, who does it usually? the Secretary, no?
  77. stpeter yes
  78. stpeter I can ping Alex
  79. bear I wasn't involved last time... oh cool - so we just need to formally say so?
  80. bear does he also handle the candidate request?
  81. stpeter for Board and Council?
  82. bear yes
  83. stpeter those are posted on the wiki
  84. bear so we need to create a 2012 Board and Council page?
  85. stpeter yes
  86. Florian yup
  87. bear is looking for that now
  88. bear defers
  89. bear ok, last item - charter/rule changes
  90. stpeter http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Board_and_Council_Elections
  91. bear \o/
  92. Florian 2011 elections :)
  93. Florian not 2012
  94. stpeter hmm
  95. stpeter well right
  96. bear looks like something we need to wait for Alex on anyways
  97. bear updates his todo list
  98. bear so rule changes, what discussion is needed by the board for that?
  99. stpeter http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Board_and_Council_Elections_2011
  100. stpeter hmm
  101. stpeter the rules about missed votes are slighly vague
  102. bear removes todo item as peter is very fast
  103. stpeter if there's a desire to change them, then I think we need a statement from the Board, or a change to the Bylaws
  104. bear has anyone notified us that they want to make that change?
  105. stpeter no, just vague rumblings -- perhaps we should start a thread about it on the members@ list
  106. stpeter bear: I'll cc you on my email to Alex
  107. bear ok, I'll email members about getting consensus after lunch
  108. bear if you haven't seen one by EOD please do poke me
  109. Florian great :)
  110. stpeter I just pinged Alex
  111. bear anything else on this topic or the others?
  112. Florian not from my side
  113. stpeter I don't think so
  114. bear will was quiet, but i'm going to take that as a sign that we have done well with the meeting and not that he got distracted by work
  115. bear ;)
  116. stpeter heh
  117. Florian hehe
  118. bear bangs the gavel
  119. bear thanks all - I'll send the minutes in a bit

  128. Neustradamus when we will vote Q3 Members Applications?
  129. Kev At the end of Q3, I would assume.
  130. Neustradamus October/November ?
  131. Kev I would guess start of Oct, but it's just a guess.
