Minutes of the GNOME Board meeting 2002-11-05
Jonathan Blandford Nat Friedman
Jim Gettys George Lebl
Telsa Gwynne (minutes)
Miguel de Icaza (30 minutes in)
DONE: Jonathan talk to gnome-sysadmin about adding ssh
tunnelling for GNOME CVS access
=> The ssh tunnelling will get added when the new CVS
machine arrives. The machine is on its way. The gnome.org
sysadmin people have their plans about ssh. There is
nothing much the board can add. So we're dropping this
item from the list as done for our part.
DONE: Jonathan to work with Louie to put the organisation chart on the
=> Luis has been refining Who Does What liss in email and
it will go onto the website when ready. This is now not
particularly a board thing, so (also) dropped from the
DONE: Nat to send his guidelines for Foundation membership out.
ACTION: Jim to restart the font discussions with various parties
=> This is now with lawyers as Jim and Well-Known Font
Maker discuss terms. It's not finalised, but very very
close. It may of course all come apart at the last minute
so fingers crossed, basically!
ACTION: Jody volunteer for working on producing a first
draft of ABI rules for GNOME-2 releases, get involvement from
someone at Sun, and make sure the draft get some review.
=> This has not neen Jody's highest priority recently. Pending.
ACTION: Tim looking at structuring tutorials, need to send a
call for speakers
=> See GUADEC discussions below.
ACTION: James and Federico to look at copyright assignment guidelines
=> James, Federico, Tim and Jim have been looking at this in
email. They came up with several points (for example any
copyright assignment arrangement should be voluntary) ; and a
list of questions and issues which need to be taken to lawyers.
ACTION: Tim to send out the report he sent to board-list to
foundation-list as well.
=> Got sidetracked; pending.
NEW: As a result of the copyright assignment discussions, Tim
to arrange a conference call between the lawyers and
James, Jim, Federico and himself. (And any others?)
Decisions and discussions:
* Approve last meeting's minutes:
They are at:
Trinity College has free dates: 14-18th June 2003. (Saturday-Wednesday)
Can provide large theatre and several smaller rooms for talks and
possibly machine room. They also have some accomodation.
GUADEC planning committee discussed a possible framework something
like this: the user day being on the first day (Saturday); Sunday
being board meeting, advisory meeting, etc; Monday and Tuesday as
developers' talks days; and perhaps the Wednesday as a summit-like
event at the end. Nothing set in stone yet: even dates.
We need a CFP (Call for Papers) and a call for tutorials then.
So we shall ask the GUADEC planning people to do that.
