Old business

  • ZEA Indian Trademark Transfer
    • Update from Matt about the cost of renewing/transferring this trademark

    New business

    • Security Announcement Process
      • Status of documenting the process for handling these events
    • Invitation to Plone to join OSI
      • Would the Plone Foundation wants to explore becoming an OSI Affiliate
    • Copyright assignment, github.com/plone and github.com/collective
      • 1. What is the assignment status of a package checked into github.com/collective even if it contains a Plone Foundation copyright notice?
        2. (How) could there ever be a migration path for a package in collective (either svn or github) into a plone.* package in github.com/plone such that there is clean assignment of copyright interest to the Foundation assuming the provenance of all commits is from folks with contributor agreements?
        3. Does github.com/plone have the blessing of the Foundation in the sense that contributions there are assigned because they are explicitly intended to become part of the work "Plone" (whether they do or not, just like svn.plone.org/svn/plone)?
        4. What code repositories should ongoing improvement work be committed to and still be clean from an assignment perspective?
