23:00 <+Bart_Massey> Howdy all!
23:00 <alanc> Good afternoon
23:01 <alanc> sorry for not sending the reminder earlier, given the time change confusion
23:01 <+Bart_Massey> :-)
23:01 <+Bart_Massey> Think the time change will get all the Europeans?
23:01 <+Bart_Massey> Or are we meeting an hour later?
23:01 <alanc> emmes was asking an hour ago why we hadn't started yet
23:01 <+Bart_Massey> :-)
23:01 <dberkholz|mob> hi
23:03 <+Bart_Massey> dberkholz: Hi!
23:03 <+emmes> yeah, i just forgot that we've got winter time as well already ;-]
23:03 <+emmes> so it's actually 11pm as usual.
23:04 <+Bart_Massey> :-)
23:06 <+Bart_Massey> Well, looks like 5 of us?
23:06 <alanc> so if anholt, agd5f, and keithp are here (haven't seen them say anything yet), then we seem to just be missing mherrb
23:06 <+anholt> hopefully I won't crash again.
23:07 <+Bart_Massey> anholt: Hi!
23:07 <agd5f> i'm here
23:07 <alanc> hopefully everyone saw dberkholz's update by e-mail on our non-acceptance to the Google winter of high school students program
23:07 <+Bart_Massey> Yeah. Sad, given that Google was pretty excited about getting applicants.  Oh well.
23:08 <+Bart_Massey> From our point of view, I suspect we dodged a lot of hard work.
23:08 <dberkholz|mob> still too bad. I would've liked to pick up a new contributor or few.
23:09 <+Bart_Massey> Indeed.
23:09 <+emmes> i also think nobody knew that only that few applicants would be accepted
23:09 <+Bart_Massey> Definitely.
23:09 <dberkholz|mob> yeah, I had no idea they were taking less than 1 for every 7 in GSoC
23:09 <alanc> it's the first time they've done this in a while, so I don't think anyone knew what to expect - hopefully like Summer of Code they'll expand once both Google and the orgs figure out what works
23:10 <+Bart_Massey> I think they've done it every year; they just renamed it this year.
23:10 <dberkholz|mob> just once before
23:10 <+Bart_Massey> It was the Google Highly Open Participation Contest last year.
23:10 <alanc> I thought that was a couple years ago
23:13 <+Bart_Massey> I think they ran it last year.
23:13 <+Bart_Massey> I talked to Carol about it.
23:13 <alanc> in any case, we did get some ideas that new contributors can start on, even if they're not high school students getting google t-shirts & money
23:14 <+Bart_Massey> Yeah, the problem with paying HS students is that you run into horrible regs.  Google gets around this by making it a "contest".
23:15 <alanc> yeah, wouldn't want to have to figure out child labor laws in all the different states, much less all the countries of the world
23:16 <+Bart_Massey> So, any other business?
23:19 <alanc> any update on 501(c)3?
23:19 <alanc> or the election committee?
23:20 <stukreit> hello port 999
23:20 <stukreit> 9
23:20 <alanc> greetings Mr. Treasurer - any report for us?
23:21 <stukreit> yeah, I'm trying to collect a bunch of checks and found that I have a lot of nte (not to exceed's)
23:21 <stukreit> guess I have to get some mail from keith, may have it buried somewhere
23:22 <stukreit> I also got a debit mastercard from hsbc.  But I thought I was getting a crypto key
23:23 <alanc> I suppose that could be handy for avoiding check cashing fees when hosting out-of-country events like the XDS dinner
23:23 <agd5f> alanc: no news on 501c3 from me.  I emailed a proposed plan to the election committee after the last meeting, but no one responded
23:23 <stukreit> that's about it. I have the checkbook with me today, planning on sase'ing the tax payment
23:23 <agd5f> stukreit: any news on 501c3?
23:24 <stukreit> haven't spoken to karen 
23:24 <agd5f> stukreit: how about the delaware franchise fee?
23:25 <stukreit> yeah, that one. I'm prepping it now to send to keith
23:28 <alanc> I'm out of items on my list for the agenda
23:28 <+Bart_Massey> Cool! Move to adjourn.
23:29 <agd5f> anyone from the election committee, please reply to my email about the election plan
23:30 <+emmes> ok
23:30 <agd5f> The dates will obviously slide from my original proposal, since it's past already
23:31 <agd5f> unless someone sends an updated proposal, I'll send out an updated one later in the week
23:33 <agd5f> same proposal, new dates
23:34 <agd5f> does starting in January work?
23:38 <+emmes> good for me. almost no more vacation ;)
23:39 <+Bart_Massey> Got to go, y'all.  See you in a couple of weeks!
23:40 <alanc> never saw a second on the motion to adjourn, but I guess we're done now
23:42 <alanc> thanks everyone
