Plone Announcements Mailing List
Motion made to move all mailing lists to OSU/OSL Mailman lists architecture.
Matt seconded. Unanimous approval. Jon suggested moving the announce list off of Feedburner because of the level of traffic. Steve says Sean Fulmer manages the list, so he can get us access to the list of people on the lists.

The group discussed the money issue (taking of payments).
Steve proposed having Matt, Toby and Jon work with Tom and Liz to figure out the ticketing and payment issue.

GSOC Session at PSU
Mark suggested that the board should hold a session at the Plone Symposium East to welcome and recognize participants and mentors in the Google Summer of Code program. Board felt that having so many board members there, this made sense and we would work on particulars between now and the next meeting.
No more new business being necessary, the meeting was adjourned.
