Discussion

  • Reporting on the plan to reexamine the election procedures, it was decided that members will be notified of the subcommittee and invited to join in the next week, preferably via the newsletter, with the report to the tabled at the 9 April 2011 SGM.
  • In regard to providing support for other Chapters to attend the Berlin Chapters Meeting, it was decided that we contact Berlin in order to firm up details about who and how much, so that we can table a motion either in the next meeting or on the mailing list.
  • Website re-licensing: John proposed that we create a page that members need to sign regarding content licensing changes, and allow both ex-members and some non-members to sign. As part of this process, non-members will be allowed to edit their user and talk pages. There was general agreement. John will also be granting sysop access to all current members of the committee.
  • Secure websites: it was decided to go with the CAcert.org option, initially for CiviCRM and later for the committee space.
