GNOME Foundation Meeting Minutes :: 7th June 2007
Present: Anne, Behdad, Dave, Glynn, Jeff, Quim, Vincent
We have the opportunity of joining ECMA as a non-profit
member. Jody has expressed an interest in being a representative
for GNOME, and suggested it would also be good to get someone
there from Abiword.
ACTION: Behdad to contact Jody about the ECMA membership application
and find a good candidate from Abiword to attend. Behdad to
work on getting a press release for our membership.
2) GUADEC Sponsorship
The GUADEC team have come up with an initial list of people to
sponsor, but still have a number of people that would like to
sponsor and have asked if they can spend an extra 5K GBP. Given
the delay in hiring the biz dev position, all feel that we can
spend a little out of that purse, providing there's a little
spread over a few people rather than one or two.
ACTION: Dave to contact GUADEC team to let them know about
the extra sponsorship, and provide some rough guidelines
if there needed to be some priorities made.
3) Biz Dev
We have another candidate available for this position, and need
to start organizing a first interview, in and around 21st June.
Dave is going to ask Jonathan if he's keen to stay involved, given
his interviewing experience. All agreed we should use the first
interview as a filter, with a recommendation later for a 2nd
interview. If the candidate gets through, it would be possible
to get them to GUADEC for a final interview, and contract
ACTION: Dave to get in touch with Jonathan to see if he is still
keen to be on the interview panel.
ACTION: Dave to organize an interview with the candidate as soon
4) GNOME and KDE Conference
There has been some discussion about a possible merge of GNOME
and KDE conferences. This has been discussed at the advisory
board level, along with the KDE e.v. members list. If there is
considerable opposition from both sides, then it isn't worth
exploring further. Jeff mentioned that it's likely to come up
ACTION: Jeff to follow up about a possible GNOME and KDE
conference merge at DAM4.
