The foundation is now on G+ and Twitter.
Travel sponsorship repayments hit a minor bump due to differing exchange rates. The outstanding money will be paid asap, and we re-defined the process to make sure we don't have that happen again.
Merging with SPI requires a membership vote, so we will need to set up an election, including a review of the bylaws.
ITEM: Google+ and Twitter accounts We now have an X.Org Foundation Google+ account, and @XOrgFoundation on Twitter. STATUS: Complete ITEM: Repayments for sponsorship Due to exchange rate differences, the repayment of some sponsorships wasn't identical to the original rate. For the future, the Treasurer and the recipient will have to agree on an exchange rate at the time the invoice is issued, as well as the actual amount. ACTION: Stuart K to repay the missing money STATUS: Pending ITEM: Bank move No updates ACTION: Stuart to complete the process STATUS: Pending ITEM: Umbrella org The by-laws require joining an umbrella org (i.e. SPI) to be a membership vote. This may require some more changes in the by-laws, along with the actual setup of an election. ACTION: Martin P to work out changes required and effort to set up an election STATUS: Pending ITEM: Potential XDC co-location Peter H has received requests for XDC to be co-located with other conferences to save on travel costs for attendees. At this point costs are unclear (dependent on the conferences), this is just a heads-up. ACTION: Peter H to gather more information STATUS: Pending ITEM: Logo contest and Foundation identity Our logo is aging and Martin P wanted to start a logo contest. There is some misperception about what X.Org is and what it encompasses, so we should attempt to find our identity (again). ACTION: None STATUS: Postponed to the next meeting
