Missed Nominee for BoD Meeting. 2. Status of Membership and By-Laws Document 3. Copyright/License Consolidation 4. Financial Reporting 1. Nominee Missed The Election Committee has checked log files and archives but was not able to find any indication of a nomination of Christophe Suter by Paul Schenker. The investigations will continue and the committee will work with Paul Schenker to resolve the issue. It was further noted that Christope Suter is not yet a member. Should this nomination have been lost, the candidate will be given the opportunity to register. EE replied to the notification on the members mailing list asking for more details however no answer has been received, yet. 2. Status of Membership and By-Laws Document The public review of the By-Laws have been completed and the text has been amended. Public review of the Membership document is still under way. Some clauses raised questions. Since SA is currently involved with election preparation EE has contacted the legal counsel about these. The results will be posted directly to the bylaws mailing list. 3. Copyright/License Consolidation Questions have come up among the board about the skope of this. It was made clear that there is no intention to change any Copyrights which wuld not be possible. The intention is to consolidate the different MIT license texts that are contained in one single source file into one worded vendor neutrally. JG has made a proposal for this. 4. EE has reviewed the books. Since these are done in Gnucash it is a rather tedious undertaking to generate reports. LS needs to clearify what information is required for the incorporation. He will communicate with EE in private.
