Action Items

  • Zope release manager - we should make a plan for this to be more public, like a News Item

    • Board has reached out to Zope active members to form a team
    • What can we as a board do to provide the 'release manager' benefit - specifically the travel stipend is not so much a benefit for this year

Incoming Correspondence

  • collective.easyform - is now part of the collective, so collective ownership applies

    • plone namespace/board does not exert any control over collective
    • Plone can recover lost packages, but this is a measure of last resort
    • lets update the collective[dot]github[dot]io 

New Business

Continued Business

  • Plone Governance Process

  • Plone Conference 2020

    • Meetings over 100 people have been banned by Belgian government, so we may need to have to go to plan b - online conference and have it physically in Belgium 2021. Or a hybrid approach - but we need to wait and see, case level isn't as extreme as USA.
    • Board will schedule a meeting with organizers to discuss further
  • Zope Domains

    • establishing contact
  • review ongoing

    Review Ongoing

    • accessibility is still ongoing, review and report to EU by early Sept. Looks ok!
    • Plone internship program, nothing new likely due to COVID
