[16:49:12] <Florian> evening all
[16:50:36] <stpeter> hi Florian
[16:50:58] <Florian> gonna attempt to remain in the room for the meeting :)
[16:51:05] <stpeter> ok :)
[16:51:07] <Florian> GPRS goodness
[16:51:12] <stpeter> are you still in Tunisia?
[16:51:17] <stpeter> or wherever you are now?
[17:00:27] *** tofu has left the room
[17:03:31] *** Will has joined the room
[17:03:37] <Florian> yeah, still Tunisia
[17:03:53] <Will> Hi
[17:03:57] <Florian> 15. August -> 15. September .. my month off :)
[17:04:10] <Florian> hey Will
[17:04:16] <stpeter> I took off last Friday, does that count? ;-)
[17:04:59] <Florian> a break's a break :D
[17:05:13] *** Will has left the room
[17:07:15] <Florian> do we have an agenda?
[17:07:39] <stpeter> I see bear online, is he paying attention here?
[17:07:44] <stpeter> Jack is also online
[17:07:56] <stpeter> I don't see NĂ¿co
[17:08:08] <Florian> me n'either
[17:08:16] <Florian> and Will left the room?
[17:08:24] <stpeter> so it seems :)
[17:09:10] *** Will has joined the room
[17:09:21] *bear is here
[17:09:34] <Will> Back, crap connection tonight
[17:11:56] <stpeter> bear: the only agenda item I recall was the schedule for board and council elections
[17:12:05] <bear> http://typewith.me/1kLLdjuejq
[17:12:08] <bear> yes
[17:12:36] <Florian> cools
[17:12:53] <bear> and possible discuss quarterly meeting results
[17:12:59] <stpeter> sure
[17:13:05] <bear> but I couldn't remember if the board needed to do anything official or not
[17:13:42] <bear> if not then that agenda item is very fast: "see Alex's email"
[17:13:54] <stpeter> see email from Alex, yes
[17:14:02] <bear> k, done! next item ...
[17:14:05] <stpeter> the Secretary takes care of that
[17:14:11] <Will> :)
[17:14:35] <stpeter> right
[17:14:53] <stpeter> last year the Board and Council elections were held in mid-October
[17:15:18] <bear> if we announce it now, that gives a good 30(ish) days of notice
[17:15:21] <Will> Any reason not to do the same this year?
[17:15:29] *stpeter looks up the date from last year
[17:15:42] <stpeter> Will: right, we usually aim for just about 12 months later
[17:16:26] <bear> no reason to not do the same IMO
[17:16:34] <stpeter> last year it was 2010-10-25
[17:16:44] <Florian> should we do the same?
[17:16:50] <stpeter> Monday the 25th last year
[17:17:10] <bear> monday would be the 24th this year
[17:17:16] <Florian> this year it would be a Tuesday
[17:17:26] <stpeter> Alex made the Quarterly meeting a Tuesday
[17:17:27] <Florian> or that
[17:17:36] <stpeter> so Tuesday the 25th (2011) seems fine
[17:17:40] <bear> k
[17:17:44] <Florian> sounds good
[17:17:48] <stpeter> we can confirm with Alex on the members@ list
[17:17:50] <Will> +1
[17:18:11] <stpeter> now the big question is how do we recruit people to volunteer for these thankless roles :)
[17:18:48] *** Will shows as "online"
[17:19:01] <stpeter> especially for the Board, we usually need to poke people about serving
[17:19:22] <Will> bribery?
[17:19:39] <bear> except for the chance of Kev hunting me down, I would love to have the chance to serve again
[17:19:55] *** Florian shows as "online"
[17:19:55] <bear> I need to atone for a very absent role of GSoC admin
[17:20:49] *** Florian has left the room
[17:20:52] *** Florian has joined the room
[17:20:57] <stpeter> Florian is running for his life :)
[17:21:00] <Florian> sorry about that ... back now
[17:21:01] <bear> hahaha
[17:21:34] <Florian> I'd love to run again too
[17:21:42] <stpeter> I have someone in mind to poke at Cisco who might be able to serve on the Board, and one other person I chatted with recently who works for a small company that is doing a lot of XMPP work and might become a sponsor
[17:21:52] <bear> cool
[17:21:55] <Florian> cool :)
[17:22:08] <bear> has anyone asked the people from &yet?
[17:22:29] <stpeter> I haven't, but I could for sure
[17:22:37] <Florian> ah, that might be a neat idea
[17:22:39] <bear> yea, Andy would be a great person
[17:22:50] <Florian> indeed
[17:22:56] <bear> that fritzy dude, i'm not sure about tho ... ;)
[17:23:03] <Florian> lol
[17:23:04] <stpeter> yeah!
[17:23:10] <Will> new blood would be a very good idea I think
[17:23:16] <stpeter> as always
[17:23:22] <Florian> bear: s/Andy/Adam?
[17:23:38] <bear> ah - adam
[17:24:01] <bear> I woke up like 5 minutes before the meeting - morning caffeine has not been found yet
[17:24:03] <stpeter> Alex said he will update http://xmpp.org/about-xmpp/xsf/xsf-member-list/ soon, at which point we can ping people about serving on the Council, too
[17:24:12] <bear> k
[17:24:18] <Florian> sounds good
[17:24:50] *stpeter sees some likely suspects
[17:25:13] <stpeter> the Council is a bit less busy than it used to be, so it shouldn't be a tremendous burden
[17:25:55] <bear> that always seems to be a minor battle for control in the past (or was I just reading in more drama than is real?)
[17:26:34] <bear> but yes, I don't expect any problems getting folks to run for the council
[17:27:05] <stpeter> ah and I just thought of someone else to poke about serving on the Board
[17:27:11] <bear> :)
[17:27:23] <Florian> great
[17:27:25] <Florian> *great
[17:27:30] <stpeter> ok, so we go forth and recruit
[17:28:24] <bear> at the 15 min mark - anything else needed to be discussed about this?
[17:29:14] <Florian> nope, not atm
[17:29:15] <Will> nope & my trains about to arrive so I'll be disappearing in a minute
[17:29:20] <stpeter> ok
[17:29:23] <stpeter> thanks, guys
[17:29:25] <bear> thanks
[17:29:30] <Will> bye
[17:29:30] <Florian> cool, thanks all
[17:29:51] <bear> shall I email Alex via the member list about the meeting?
[17:30:00] *Florian goes back to pay attention to the crowd on the beach
[17:30:08] <bear> nice!
[17:30:10] <stpeter> Florian: :)
[17:30:16] <stpeter> bear: yes, let's
[17:30:23] <bear> k
[17:30:32] *** Will has left the room
[17:30:33] <bear> I'll do that and the minutes mail now
[17:30:36] <stpeter> super
[17:30:44] *stpeter checks the minutes at typewithme
[17:30:54] *bear does alex mail first
[17:30:57] <stpeter> heh
[17:31:01] <stpeter> minutes look good :)
[17:31:15] <bear> cool
[17:32:26] *** Florian has left the room
[17:36:53] <bear> stpeter - is it Alex that prepares the wiki page for the board/council elections?
[17:37:10] <stpeter> anyone can do it -- it's a wiki :)
[17:37:33] <bear> k
[17:38:32] <stpeter> happy to do that now, but Alex said he would when we talked about it yesterday in the XSF meeting
[17:38:43] <bear> sorry - that was the real question I was trying to ask
[17:38:56] <bear> I'll mention in the email that
[17:39:10] <stpeter> ok
[17:39:19] <bear> naa - i'll keep it short and simple
[17:42:22] <bear> doh! /me finally reads the member email from Alex where he says exactly that
[17:42:35] <bear> I think it would be safer for all if I go get caffeine now
[17:42:47] <stpeter> :)
[17:42:49] <stpeter> please do :)
[17:43:06] *stpeter has been up for at least 6 hours already :P
[17:43:22] <stpeter> but then I don't work until 4 am every night like you seem to
[17:43:28] <bear> true, but I only went to bed 5 hrs ago ... yea
[17:43:32] <stpeter> ouch
[17:43:48] <bear> the pain of dealing with folks in CA *and* Europe on a daily basis
[17:43:50] <stpeter> I usually work until only 10 PM, although last night it was 11
[17:43:54] <stpeter> yep
[17:43:57] <stpeter> no fun
[17:44:27] <bear> yea, like I need to explain any of that TZ fun to you :)
[17:47:07] <bear> FYI - next meeting will be the 14th if we keep to this schedule
[17:47:26] <bear> I may miss it as I am working from San Jose that whole week
