22:55 <alanc> Good afternoon. Meeting should begin in about 5 minutes 22:56 <+mherrb> Hi 23:01 <+emmes> heho 23:01 <marcheu> hmm, we have 3 Soc slots :( 23:02 <alanc> seems to be around the typical number - I think we usually have 3-4 slots for 10-12 applicants 23:03 <marcheu> alanc: usually 4-5 23:03 <+Bart_Massey> Minute or two late; sorry. 23:03 <alanc> okay, was about to say Bart might remember better how many GSoC slots we had in the past 23:03 <+Bart_Massey> It has varied widely. 23:03 <+Bart_Massey> Sometimes just two or three. Sometimes as many as 7? 23:04 <+Bart_Massey> Do we know what we've got this year yet? 23:04 <marcheu> nope, we had 4/5/2/4 23:04 <marcheu> this year we're at 3 23:04 <+Bart_Massey> OK, you knew the answer :-) 23:04 <dberkholz> hi there 23:04 <marcheu> hopefully we get a 4th in the process 23:05 <alanc> did anyone get the mail I sent yesterday to board & members with the pointer to the summary of last meeting and reminder for today? 23:05 <dberkholz> gentoo may or may not have some extra slottage it could slide toward xorg 23:05 <+mherrb> alanc: no I didn't get it afaict. 23:05 <dberkholz> let me know how many projects xorg can't live without 23:05 <dberkholz> alanc: no, i didn't get it. i just saw you link it on irc 23:05 <alanc> I seem to be unable to send to those lists or receive mail from it since my address changed - haven't been getting notices that they' re stuck in the moderation queues either 23:06 <agd5f> alanc: I don't recall seeing it 23:06 <alanc> guess I'll poke the sitewranglers later 23:07 <alanc> I didn't make any progress on my action of talking to the lawyers (or talking to Bart to get their contact info) - I don't see any ot her outstanding actions from the last meeting 23:08 <agd5f> well, we can always do evoc for good applicants beyond 3 23:08 <marcheu> agd5f: yup, but I'll ask for additional slots first. you can ask to be put on the waiting line so I'll do that 23:09 <agd5f> I'd like to finalize who we want as our new tech and admin contacts for x.org 23:09 <agd5f> domain stuff 23:10 <+Bart_Massey> Sorry, AFK. Yes, EVoC is a fine backup. PSU may have slots for you too; it looks like we may get more than we really need if all goes well. 23:10 <marcheu> Bart_Massey: you cannot transfer from an org to another directly though 23:10 <+Bart_Massey> agd5f I *think* we want SFLC for admin. Technical matters less, because the admin can change it, I think. 23:11 <dberkholz> marcheu: in my experience, you can tell google where you want extra slots to go and they will respect it 23:11 <+Bart_Massey> marcheu: No, but if we ask nicely in the past they've always said yes. :-) 23:11 <agd5f> Matt suggested SFLC for the admin contact. is there a person we want or a generic address? as for the tech contact, is sitewrangers @freedesktop.org appropriate or do we want a specific person? 23:11 <+Bart_Massey> agd5f: Generic would be best. I think they'll want a tech contact physical address, so I don't know how to do sitewranglers. 23:12 <agd5f> Bart_Massey: maybe the hosting address? 23:12 <alanc> do we still have a PO Box in portland? 23:12 <+Bart_Massey> agd5f: If they will surely forward our physical mail. 23:12 <+Bart_Massey> alanc: I don't think so. keithp? 23:13 <alanc> hrm, http://www.x.org/wiki/XorgFoundation lists one as our contact address 23:13 * Bart_Massey s/surely/reliably/ :-( 23:13 <+mherrb> afaict the dns stuff is hosted on expo. someone with root on expo should be tech c. 23:13 <+keithp> alanc: our PO box expired; we hadn't received any mail there for over a year 23:13 <+keithp> so I didn't renew it. I didn't realize it was listed as a contact address 23:13 <+Bart_Massey> mherrb: For sure. It would be nice to have a role rather than an individual, though. 23:13 <alanc> I think the root on expo has a high overlap with sitewranglers 23:13 <+Bart_Massey> keithp: I don't think it is right now. 23:14 <alanc> we can remove it from the wiki page easily 23:14 <+keithp> alanc: probably a good idea 23:14 <alanc> Done 23:14 <+Bart_Massey> I forget why we don't just hire a mail-forwarding agent? 23:14 <alanc> http://www.x.org/wiki/XorgFoundation?action=diff 23:15 <+Bart_Massey> It seems ideal for us... 23:16 <dberkholz> there's a startup headquartered in portland that will open and scan all your mail 23:16 <dberkholz> or forward it, if desired 23:17 <+Bart_Massey> Yes, Earth-Class Mail 23:17 <+Bart_Massey> I know the owner pretty well... 23:17 <+Bart_Massey> Their plan is to use robots, but I think right now they just hire people. :-) 23:18 <+Bart_Massey> But I was thinking just a Mailboxes-etc type place that would give us a PO Box and throw everything in a big mailing envelope once in a while and mail it to Alan's house. 23:20 <alanc> if we actually got mail, that would seem reasonable, and better able to cope with the secretary changing every year or two 23:21 <agd5f> seems like a good plan 23:21 <alanc> so going back to the original question: did we decide on who the domain contacts should be? firstname.lastname@example.org for admin? 23:21 <+Bart_Massey> No, sflc for admin 23:21 <+Bart_Massey> sitewranglers for tech 23:22 <+mherrb> if you look at fd.o they have generic fd.o LLC for both admin and thec 23:22 <+Bart_Massey> Get a PO box to give as a physical addr f 23:22 <+Bart_Massey> or sitewranglers 23:22 <agd5f> so for sflc, what email should we use? 23:22 <alanc> right, I was thinking sysadmin, meant tech 23:22 <+Bart_Massey> agd5f: Their office, presumably 23:22 <+Bart_Massey> Ask them. 23:23 <alanc> freedesktop.org whois gives a paper mail address for them of 7615 SW 59th Ave, Portland, OR - wonder who that actually is 23:23 <+Bart_Massey> :-) 23:23 <agd5f> ok. will do. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't someone there that we are currently working with that we wanted to use 23:23 <+Bart_Massey> Talk to Karen Sandler 23:24 <+Bart_Massey> She's our contact person at SFLC. 23:24 <+Bart_Massey> She will tell you what to do, I think. 23:24 <agd5f> Bart_Massey: Can you email me her contact info? 23:24 <+Bart_Massey> Working. 23:25 <+Bart_Massey> agd5f: Now I just need *your* contact info and I'm set. :-) 23:25 <+Bart_Massey> Just a sec. 23:27 <+Bart_Massey> OK. Anything else today? 23:27 <alanc> The one piece of news I have to report is that I've been informed Hideki Hiura passed away last week. Most of you probably don't re member him, but he was one of the original Xlib Input Method framework authors for X11R6, and one of the founders/chairs of openi18n.org/li18nux.or g with the FSG. 23:28 <+Bart_Massey> How sad. Can you send condolences someplace appropriate on behalf of the Board? 23:28 <alanc> I have e-mail for his wife I can send a note to 23:29 <+emmes> Yes, I think that would be appropriate. 23:29 <+mherrb> sure. 23:29 <agd5f> yes 23:29 <dberkholz> it would be really nice to send a physical card 23:29 <+Bart_Massey> Thanks! 23:30 <+Bart_Massey> Move to adjourn 23:30 <agd5f> seconded 23:30 <+keithp> ta ta 23:30 <+Bart_Massey> alanc: ? 23:31 <alanc> sounds like we're adjourned to me 23:31 <+Bart_Massey> Thanks all! 23:31 <+emmes> nothing from my side 23:31 <alanc> I've got that all the members except anholt were in attendance
