  44. stpeter so it seems :)
  45. Will has joined
  46. bear is here
  47. Will Back, crap connection tonight
  48. stpeter bear: the only agenda item I recall was the schedule for board and council elections
  49. bear http://typewith.me/1kLLdjuejq
  50. bear yes
  51. Florian cools
  52. bear and possible discuss quarterly meeting results
  53. stpeter sure
  54. bear but I couldn't remember if the board needed to do anything official or not
  55. bear if not then that agenda item is very fast: "see Alex's email"
  56. stpeter see email from Alex, yes
  57. bear k, done! next item ...
  58. stpeter the Secretary takes care of that
  59. Will :)
  60. stpeter right
  61. stpeter last year the Board and Council elections were held in mid-October
  62. bear if we announce it now, that gives a good 30(ish) days of notice
  63. Will Any reason not to do the same this year?
  64. stpeter looks up the date from last year
  65. stpeter Will: right, we usually aim for just about 12 months later
  66. bear no reason to not do the same IMO
  67. stpeter last year it was 2010-10-25
  68. Florian should we do the same?
  69. stpeter Monday the 25th last year
  70. bear monday would be the 24th this year
  71. Florian this year it would be a Tuesday
  72. stpeter Alex made the Quarterly meeting a Tuesday
  73. Florian or that
  74. stpeter so Tuesday the 25th (2011) seems fine
  75. bear k
  76. Florian sounds good
  77. stpeter we can confirm with Alex on the members@ list
  78. Will +1
  79. stpeter now the big question is how do we recruit people to volunteer for these thankless roles :)
  80. stpeter especially for the Board, we usually need to poke people about serving
  81. Will bribery?
  82. bear except for the chance of Kev hunting me down, I would love to have the chance to serve again
  83. bear I need to atone for a very absent role of GSoC admin
  84. Florian has left
  85. Florian has joined
  86. stpeter Florian is running for his life :)
  87. Florian sorry about that ... back now
  88. bear hahaha
  89. Florian I'd love to run again too
  90. 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
  91. bear cool
  92. Florian cool :)
  93. bear has anyone asked the people from &yet?
  94. stpeter I haven't, but I could for sure
  95. Florian ah, that might be a neat idea
  96. bear yea, Andy would be a great person
  97. Florian indeed
  98. bear that fritzy dude, i'm not sure about tho ... ;)
  99. Florian lol
  100. stpeter yeah!
  101. Will new blood would be a very good idea I think
  102. stpeter as always
  103. Florian bear: s/Andy/Adam?
  104. bear ah - adam
  105. bear I woke up like 5 minutes before the meeting - morning caffeine has not been found yet
  106. 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
  107. bear k
  108. Florian sounds good
  109. stpeter sees some likely suspects
  110. stpeter the Council is a bit less busy than it used to be, so it shouldn't be a tremendous burden
  111. 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?)
  112. bear but yes, I don't expect any problems getting folks to run for the council
  113. stpeter ah and I just thought of someone else to poke about serving on the Board
  114. bear :)
  115. Florian great
  116. Florian *great
  117. stpeter ok, so we go forth and recruit
  118. bear at the 15 min mark - anything else needed to be discussed about this?
  119. Florian nope, not atm
  120. Will nope & my trains about to arrive so I'll be disappearing in a minute
  121. stpeter ok
  122. stpeter thanks, guys
  123. bear thanks
  124. Will bye
  125. Florian cool, thanks all
  126. bear shall I email Alex via the member list about the meeting?
  127. Florian goes back to pay attention to the crowd on the beach
  128. bear nice!
  129. stpeter Florian: :)
  130. stpeter bear: yes, let's
  131. bear k
  132. Will has left

  139. bear cool
  140. Florian has left
  141. bear stpeter - is it Alex that prepares the wiki page for the board/council elections?
  142. stpeter anyone can do it -- it's a wiki :)
  143. bear k
  144. stpeter happy to do that now, but Alex said he would when we talked about it yesterday in the XSF meeting
  145. bear sorry - that was the real question I was trying to ask
  146. bear I'll mention in the email that
  147. stpeter ok
  148. bear naa - i'll keep it short and simple
  149. bear doh! /me finally reads the member email from Alex where he says exactly that
  150. bear I think it would be safer for all if I go get caffeine now
  151. stpeter :)
  152. stpeter please do :)
  153. stpeter has been up for at least 6 hours already :P
  154. stpeter but then I don't work until 4 am every night like you seem to
  155. bear true, but I only went to bed 5 hrs ago ... yea
  156. stpeter ouch
  157. bear the pain of dealing with folks in CA *and* Europe on a daily basis
  158. stpeter I usually work until only 10 PM, although last night it was 11
  159. stpeter yep
  160. stpeter no fun
  161. bear yea, like I need to explain any of that TZ fun to you :)
