Although not everybody has read the notes no extension of review period has been requested. 2. Bylaws Issue was tabled as bylaw committee has not made any progress since last meeting due to other committments. Due to urgent work on the 7.1 release KM will be unable to join a meeting before next week. 3. Press release for 7.1 release KM described the progress of the 7.1 release. Release is scheduled for the coming Friday if everything runs on schedule. The question was brought up if provisions need to be made for the press release as in the past X.Org avoided weekends when making press releases. It was pointed out that media are expected to pick up press releases at any time. It was decided to contact Ajax as release manager if sees any issues. 4. Status of Mirroring After the issues with the directory structure on freedesktop.org have been resolved mirroring of the release tree has been started. 5. Misc. LS reported that on his trip to Europe he met a corporate group from South Korea that is very intereseted to participate in our community and possible also become a sponsor. Cultural and language barriers exist. Mentoring may be required. Furthermore LS reported on a group from St.Petersburg he has met on LinuxTag that is also very interested in participating in the X.Org community. Since the group has been busy manning a booth they were unable to visit the X.Org booth to meet with people from the community. No immediate action by the board required. 6. State of Machines from SUN LS will schedule a meeting with Ajax at MIT to introduce him to the location and get him access. It is planned to rack the SUN machines at this time. SK reported that he found issues with the remote management unit of those machines. If remote management is not possible over the network a remote dump terminal facility may be required.
