Servers mostly transferred thanks to Daniel Stone. Last hold-off seems NS records, which are blocked on the domain issues.

Items discussed

ITEM: elections
Renewal ends today, 58 out of 71 members renewed. Election committee is Peter,
Rob, Martin and Daniel. Elections to start after SPI board mtg (12th Feb) on
22th Feb. Mandatory is 2 weeks of voting, trying to juggle nomination and QA
period to avoid major holidays. For the SPI vote we need 75% of all members
agreeing. Need to make sure members understand that not voting means voting
against the SPI merger. Discussion on how much reminding is ok. Agreed that
only voting machine is allowed to know who hasn't voted yet (so procmail alias
w/ bcc). Secretary also needs to send the formal request for
invitation to the SPI board.

ACTIONS: Martin to set up election page for 2016 using 2015 template.
ACTIONS: Peter to set up a mail alias for members who haven't voted yet for
voting reminders.
ACTIONS: Daniel to send request for invitation to SPI.
STATUS: Pending

ITEM: domain ownership
Domain is extended, Leon helped with that. Still working on fixing the
ownership, but no updates. Also figuring out how to handle domains properly in
the future (also with an eye towards the possible spi merger), Peter is working
on that with SFLC.
ACTIONS: Keith to chase NS again.
STATUS: Pending

ITEM: server
Plan to use letsencrypt to avoid ssl cert renewal issues in the future. already moved now. Bunch of stuff on moved to fd.o
servers by Daniel Stone.
