Notes from X.Org BoD telecon July 14, 2006 Present: Stuart Kreitman (SK) Stuart Anderson (SA) Jim Gettys (JG) Kevin Martin (KM) Leon Shiman (LS) Egbert Eich (EE) Topics ------ 1. Bylaw Subcommittee Report 2. Planning an F2F Meeting this Year 3. Board Elections 4. Status Incorporation Documents / other unfinished Business 5. Status of Server at MIT 1. Bylaw Subcommittee Report The bylaw subcommittee has received feedback from the laywer. The feedback was discussed issues that the subcommittee felt it was unable to solve itself were posted back to the laywer with questions and comments. 2. Planning of F2F Meetings this Year There will be no f2f meeting of the board at OLS as not all members will be there. The next phone meeting will be scheduled for Jul, 25th. 3. Board Elections The election process will not start until after the summer (ie. middle of August). Election subcommittee will meet in Ottawa to discuss schedule details. JG is presently looking into the election software that is used by the Gnome Foundation. 4. Status Incorporation Documents / other unfinished Business LS hopes to be able to have the Incorporation Documents which include the non profit status documents and the paperwork for the IRS filings ready for the next meeting. He will also refile the applications to give SK counter signature authority for money transfers with our bank. Recent difficulties with money transfers were discussed. LS assured the board that the procedures the bank applied for money transfers were reasonable and were not the cause of the delays. 5. Status of Server at MIT The status of the servers at MIT were discussed. SA would like to reinstall expo. The current setup is suboptimal which caused the delay in email delivery to the board when mailman died due to a full root fs. The SUN machines have not been mounted in the racks, yet. Adam Jackson who volunteered to do this together with LS was busy with other things. SK asks to run OpenSolaris on the SUN machines. He will take over the responsibility to administrate these machines.
