Reports, Discussion & Decisions

Election Committee

The final slate of 6 candidates was posted to the members mailing list.

Treasurer Status

Stuart reported that HSBC is processing the paperwork to get him the electronic security device to access the accounts online.

Bylaw Amendments

The board members agreed it was too late to try to get bylaw amendments in for this election, and that we should continue working to determine what to change for a future vote.

Raising the per-company limit from 2 members to 3 was suggested for consideration in the bylaw amendments, as that still keeps any company from having a majority of board members.

SFLC Donation

Search of the past minutes found discussion of SFLC donations but no vote on an actual donation amount. Donnie suggested an initial donation of $7500, and an ongoing annual pledge of $2000. The board unanimously voted in favor.

X.Org Machine hosting at MIT

Freedesktop.org is getting new hardware and has offered to transfer the services from expo.x.org, which is currently hosted at MIT, to a virtual machine on one of their new systems. This would allow the Foundation to stop paying MIT for hosting of aging hardware systems.

The board voted to accept this offer.
