Incoming correspondence

(Cris joined the call at 20:07)
CMS Day France -- Paul’s been receiving correspondence and let us know that the French Plone companies are active on this.

New Business 

Possible license violation

We received a notice that a company had a GPL 3 label on some Plone 4.x add ons. On investigation, there seems to be no substantive violation. License files in source are GPL 2, so this looks like a simple error that doesn’t need board intervention.
Steve will respond on why we’re not acting on this.

Old Business


Apparently, we can have some space at EuroPython, but it’s not clear what it will be. Discussion of possible social event to attract others. Have lightning talks at one of the recreation areas? T-shirts may happen w/o PF funding.
Paul suggested we give Alex free reign in further discussions.

plone.com/org progress

We need to get a status report on the development of stories for plone.com. Andy will check in with Christine to see where this is and what help we can offer.

plone.org - no new progress information

Advisory/ambassador board

Closer to ready to publicize: we are still lacking pictures.


We have free passes, but did not receive a booth. Cris will notify membership of availability.


We still need to work on the schedule for soliciting/choosing.
Matt Hamilton now has the keys to the ploneconf mailing list.

Position for intern

Correspondence done to indicate our willingness to fund under the right conditions. No other progress.

Review ongoing

Noted that new documentation section is still making progress. And, is already much better.

Note: Érico had poor connectivity for most of the meeting, and wasn’t able to participate in most matters.
