Discussion & Decisions

501(3)c Conversion

Alex reported on progress on the 501(3)c paperwork, and that he was meeting with Karen, our SFLC lawyer, the next day for discussion on the remaining work. Bart asked if the financial reports were done yet - Stuart was unable to attend, but relayed that he had no update.

Open Group license discussion

Adam Jackson asked if we could approach The Open Group to request relicensing the X Test Suite suite from the original Artistic license to an OSI-approved license, to make it more acceptable to distros such as Fedora. Alan agreed to take the action item to discuss this with them.
