XSF Discussion - 2012-10-30

  1. stpeter

    T-10 minutes, eh?

  2. stpeter

    I have a conference call at the top of the hour, but I'll keep one eye on the chatroom

  3. Tobias

    voted JIT :)

  4. stpeter


  5. Lance

    Tobias: you could have been the first to actually vote in a meeting

  6. stpeter


  7. stpeter

    IIRC it's happened a few times, but not often

  8. Tobias

    nah...don't want to extend meetings longer than needed

  9. stpeter ponders sending his idea for unvoting to the members@ list, at least for admitting members (not board and council -- yet ;-)

  10. Tobias


  11. stpeter

    Tobias: no membership applications -- get a current member to nominate you

  12. Tobias

    ahh...interesting idea

  13. stpeter

    that would remove quarterly elections, so we'd have elections only once a year for Board and Council

  14. Arc Riley

    I'm trying to remember a case where someone applied for membership who didn't voted in

  15. Tobias

    yup...question remains: how will we garbage collect members?

  16. Alex

    hi guys

  17. Tobias

    hi Alex

  18. stpeter
