New Action:

  ACTION: Luis to post the Minutes of the meeting with the advisory board

  ACTION: Dave to try to get a german lawyer feedback on the contract for 
          the GNOME online shop within a week.

  ACTION: Tim to speak to our lawyers about trademark and local groups in Europe


 * GNOME store decision on contract
   Problem is on the governing law for the contract
   4 people would like to sign it at this point
   3 people would prefer to get a german lawyer feedback first

 * International holders of trademark - should we allow
   gnome.fr to hold the trademark in France, for example?
   Mixed feeling, seems it is better kept by the GNOME Foundation itself,
   but Tim will investigate how to best proceed.

 * Status of 3rd quarter financial information
   current state of our bank account
   we are missing a good accounting software for non-profit which is 
   not running under Windows, we may have to use Wine !

 * OpenCD - is there anything meaningful here? What concrete
   actions should we take?
   This should really be discussed with them on the marketing-list

 * next meeting Wed 31
