Notes from X.Org BoD telecon September 5, 2006 Present: ======== Leon Shiman (LS) Kevin Martin (KM) Stuart Kreitman (SK) Jim McQillan (JQ) Egbert Eich (EE) Topics: ======= 1. Public By-Law Review 2. X.Org Trademark Issues 3. Membership Management 1. Public By-Law Review Resonance on the public bylaw review has not been very big. One issue broad up was that the new bylaws have a one minimum year membership requirement for people who whould like to run for the board. People found this not very realistic as they feel that many individuals who have been active in the community may not bother to become members until shortly before the election. One possible solution may be to * require membership only at the time of the election * base eligibility on active participation (that would qualify for membership) * reduce the period to 6 month. KM will draft and publish an updated wording. 2. X.Org Trademark Issues The discussion on this topic continued. 3. Membership Management SA has added some more pieces to the membership management infrastructure. The board would like to express its appreciation for his effords.
