Old Action Items
1) Board elections
We need to get the process started on that. As an FYI, I don't plan to run, for two reasons:
a. I haven't done squat and don't deserve to be on the board until I do squat. I'm quite disappointed in myself. Gotta go earn some karma points.
b. I think it's time for the old timers to pass the torch on the organizational side and make way for the next generation.
As such, I can conduct the nomination process and voting. Joel, Hanno, and Godefroid have all offered to pitch in as well.
Paul will kick off the process...
I'd like to launch Plone.net well in advance of the conference and actually get Plone Foundation sponsorships lined up. In particular, I'd like to be able to recognize the people that sponsor, during the conference. As such, I need to send around some info before the board meeting and get a final approval from you guys.
There is a general agreement with proposed price structure and "yellow pages" concept as starting point.Geir: having a "badge" to put into your website that sais "I'm a sponsor of the PF".
The board will continue comments and discussion in the ML to move on quickly.
