Items from previous minutes:
(a) Foonotes hardware
- Jeff talked to Luke Stroven about replacement hardware
for gnomedesktop.org. Unfortunately there was not time
in the meeting to cover the details of these
conversations, so this item has been postponed to next
meeting (or possibly to the mailing list).
(b) Trademark agreement
- The lawyers sent another draft of the trademark
agreement back and this has just been circulated to
(c) Replacement cvs.gnome.org machine
- Jonathan did some work on this last weekend and some
mail has been sent mail to the gnome-sysadmin list
detailing the current status.
- It was decided that due to time constraints imposed by
the pending GNOME 2.6 release, the migration of CVS to
the new machine will be postponed until after 2.6 is
released. The current CVS machine will be able to
handle the capacity for a bit longer.
(a) Upcoming Advisory Board meeting
- Malcolm will send out notification in about a week to
Advisory Board members regarding the next meeting
(scheduled for 11 March).
- Since some discussion of the agenda and preparation
for this meeting seems to be required, the board
elected to have a special meeting next week to
complete this task.
(b) Meeting times
- Luis advised that he has a regular clash with our
current meeting time. We need to discuss a possibly
different time or day (on the mailing list).
Meeting closed at 21:35 UTC
Next meeting: 1 March, 20:30 UTC (on IRC)
