Discussion & Decisions

501(c) transition

Bart reported the previous LLC has been dissolved, and the 501(c) formed. Bart informed the Software Freedom Law Center (the Foundation's legal counsel) that Alan is now secretary. The next steps are getting the treasurer transfer complete and getting some financial documents together that SFLC needs. Keith has the details and needs to provide them to Stuart.

Election Committee

The Election Committee for next year will be Alex, Matthieu, Matthias, & Keith (the members not up for re-election). We ensured they have access to the system with the steps needed to run the election.

Google Summer of Code
