Quick Committee status reports (IP, Membership, Marketing)
IP Committee has discussed logo variation approval request. Some dispute over desirability of enforcing trademark.
Steve reported we do have a handful of applications for membership committee. He’s hoping to get at least a couple more.
Marketing Committee is working on plan for Plone 4 introduction, and has a new set of guidelines for review by the board.
Domain name dispute
Steve is gathering documentation
Plone conference 2010
Possibilities discussed. All prospects informal at this point.
Discussion of possibility that we might ask the membership about the possibility of having multiple conferences. This would take some guidelines and the role of the foundation would need to be defined.
Guidelines are very close to complete. We discussed the latest draft, which includes some additional examples, and refined, reduced policy text. We’ll take this up at the first meeting of the new year.
Request from Trish Ang/Plonechix about logo usage
Geir moved, Mark seconded turning down the proposed variations. Mark will communicate with Trish, explaining why the proposals are not in compliance and suggesting ways in which acceptable logos could be created.

Discussed on membership list; will come to board January 7th.
