Still sorting out the remaining XDC sponsorship money. Suggestions at FOSDEM for sponsoring formal validation work, but we're lacking details. GSoC is coming, let's come up with ideas!

Items discussed

ITEM: Remaining XDC payments
We still owe three of the XDC travel sponsorship recipients some money due
to exchange rate mixups. Need to get the right sum from the recipients, then
we can transfer it.
ACTION: Stuart K and Martin P to transfer and distribute the money
STATUS: Pending

ITEM: validating swrast/llvm-pipe, funding GL compliance tests
Suggested at FOSDEM: the Foundation could organise/support validation for
swrast/llvm-pipe and GL compliance tests.
Unclear on the details yet, we need some more info on what is involved, what
the potential costs are (if any), etc.
ACTION: Contact those that suggested the items for more details
STATUS: Pending

ITEM: Google Summer of Code
GSoC is upon us and we need ideas. Martin P already sent to the lists, the
wiki for ideas is:

We need to make sure our ideas page is up-to-date and refreshed to get into
the list of GSoC orgs.
ACTION: Contacting a few previous mentors directly, come up with ideas
STATUS: Pending
