Floriangonna attempt to remain in the room for the meeting :)
stpeterare you still in Tunisia?
stpeteror wherever you are now?
Florianyeah, still Tunisia
Florian15. August -> 15. September .. my month off :)
stpeterI took off last Friday, does that count? ;-)
Floriana break's a break :D
Floriando we have an agenda?
stpeterI see bear online, is he paying attention here?
stpeterJack is also online
stpeterI don't see Nÿco
Florianand Will left the room?
stpeterso it seems :)
WillBack, crap connection tonight
stpeterbear: the only agenda item I recall was the schedule for board and council elections
bearand possible discuss quarterly meeting results
bearbut I couldn't remember if the board needed to do anything official or not
bearif not then that agenda item is very fast: "see Alex's email"
stpetersee email from Alex, yes
beark, done! next item ...
stpeterthe Secretary takes care of that
stpeterlast year the Board and Council elections were held in mid-October
bearif we announce it now, that gives a good 30(ish) days of notice
WillAny reason not to do the same this year?
stpeterlooks up the date from last year
stpeterWill: right, we usually aim for just about 12 months later
bearno reason to not do the same IMO
stpeterlast year it was 2010-10-25
Florianshould we do the same?
stpeterMonday the 25th last year
bearmonday would be the 24th this year
Florianthis year it would be a Tuesday
stpeterAlex made the Quarterly meeting a Tuesday
stpeterso Tuesday the 25th (2011) seems fine
stpeterwe can confirm with Alex on the members@ list
stpeternow the big question is how do we recruit people to volunteer for these thankless roles :)
stpeterespecially for the Board, we usually need to poke people about serving
bearexcept for the chance of Kev hunting me down, I would love to have the chance to serve again
bearI need to atone for a very absent role of GSoC admin
stpeterFlorian is running for his life :)
Floriansorry about that ... back now
FlorianI'd love to run again too
stpeterI 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
bearhas anyone asked the people from &yet?
stpeterI haven't, but I could for sure
Florianah, that might be a neat idea
bearyea, Andy would be a great person
bearthat fritzy dude, i'm not sure about tho ... ;)
Willnew blood would be a very good idea I think
bearah - adam
bearI woke up like 5 minutes before the meeting - morning caffeine has not been found yet
stpeterAlex 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
stpetersees some likely suspects
stpeterthe Council is a bit less busy than it used to be, so it shouldn't be a tremendous burden
bearthat always seems to be a minor battle for control in the past (or was I just reading in more drama than is real?)
bearbut yes, I don't expect any problems getting folks to run for the council
stpeterah and I just thought of someone else to poke about serving on the Board
stpeterok, so we go forth and recruit
bearat the 15 min mark - anything else needed to be discussed about this?
Floriannope, not atm
Willnope & my trains about to arrive so I'll be disappearing in a minute
Floriancool, thanks all
bearshall I email Alex via the member list about the meeting?
Floriangoes back to pay attention to the crowd on the beach
stpeterbear: yes, let's
bearI'll do that and the minutes mail now
stpeterchecks the minutes at typewithme
beardoes alex mail first
stpeterminutes look good :)
bearstpeter - is it Alex that prepares the wiki page for the board/council elections?
stpeteranyone can do it -- it's a wiki :)
stpeterhappy to do that now, but Alex said he would when we talked about it yesterday in the XSF meeting
bearsorry - that was the real question I was trying to ask
bearI'll mention in the email that
bearnaa - i'll keep it short and simple
beardoh! /me finally reads the member email from Alex where he says exactly that
bearI think it would be safer for all if I go get caffeine now
stpeterplease do :)
stpeterhas been up for at least 6 hours already :P
stpeterbut then I don't work until 4 am every night like you seem to
beartrue, but I only went to bed 5 hrs ago ... yea
bearthe pain of dealing with folks in CA *and* Europe on a daily basis
stpeterI usually work until only 10 PM, although last night it was 11
bearyea, like I need to explain any of that TZ fun to you :)
bearFYI - next meeting will be the 14th if we keep to this schedule
bearI may miss it as I am working from San Jose that whole week
