ITEM: SPI vote
We're planning to re-vote on the SPI changes, based on the low participation
in the last election but the high approval of the changes.
A couple of (expected to be minor) changes to the bylaws are proposed, they
need to be voted on by the board.
ACTION: Martin P to send proposed changes to the board list
STATUS: Pending
