Plone domain consolidation [geir]

Transfers continue; we seem to see people when domains are expiring.

Issue for the future.

Event funding request: Open Source Pacific Asia Conference and Expo, Pretaweb

Request appeared to be for $575 from foundation for half of event registration.
It was not completely clear that this was the total request, though.
General consensus that we are interested in helping fund a presence at an Asian-Pacific event.

Plone Symposium logos

Mark noted that he would like to see cleanup on the symposia logos for branding compliance.
The Plone Symposium East logo currently doesn’t meet our guidelines.
Mark will contact them.

Symposium Naming

Alex suggested that we use “Regional Conference” rather than “Symposium.” Regions should typically be nations, states (US) or less. If you want to represent more, check it out with the foundation. This doesn’t apply to currently scheduled symposia.
Geir suggested Alex draft a document that we can discuss.

Geir adjourned us at 1:05pm
