Summary of the 23 July 2015 meeting of the X.Org Foundation Board of Directors Full IRC meeting logs are posted at 2015



  • Peter Hutterer, Egbert Eich, Rob Clark, Martin Peres, Alex Deucher, Daniel Vetter, Matt Dew


  • Egbert Eich, Keith Packard


Items discussed

ITEM: bylaw changes
Couple of minor changes discussed to the bylaws. We currently have a maximum
of 2 board members from the same company, this has on a few occasions in the
past been too small. Option to change it to 3 discussed (5 yay 1 nay), we'll
discuss again when Keith/Egbert are back.
This limit was put in place when companies had more influence on X.Org's
(technical) direction than now, it is unlikely to be an issue now
ACTIONS: Discuss/revote when Keith and Egbert are bck
STATUS: Pending

Juliet does not appear to have a bank account in her own name, we have not
issued any payments thus. Looked at the options GSoC/Outreachy do in this
case and the requirements for verification. Some extra bits added to the
EVoC wiki page, further discussion is needed, we ran out of time.
ACTIONS: Further discussion needed to clarify the situation
STATUS: Pending
