On the Advisory Board meeting agenda: the general theme is sharing
information. Current proposal:
o Presentation on Gnome 2.0 to open meeting.
o Looking at current and future userbase: will invite members
to make presentations on that, as we expect several Advisory
Board members to have information on that.
o Find out what features the Advisory Board members would
like to see in Gnome.
o Discussion of future releases: what is contained in
'platform', 'apps', 'fifth toe' (that name makes sense to
people who know the Gnome foot has four toes but not to
o What is Gnome currently lacking? (This might be part of
the initial 2.0 presentation.)
Nat wanted to discuss ABIs: guarantees and plans. He wasn't here,
Tim Ney forwarded the proposed by-laws for the legal entity that
is the Gnome Foundation. They're long and legalistic and arrived
yesterday, so not everyone has read them yet. It will take a
foundation board meeting to adopt them, so we all need to read
them and agree (or disagree..). Havoc will send them to
foundation-list too so everyone has a chance to see them and
comment. We hope to adopt them (or to say why not) at the next
meeting. This is in two weeks' time so comments should come
