  • 20:00 Meeting starts
  • 20:05 Previous meeting minutes approved
  • 20:07 Sponsoring LocationTech Tour 2014
    • aghisla: andrew mentioned that any osgeo member can have presentations at LT events
    • aghisla: i also see it as something that osgeo could organise too
    • jmckenna: why do we so fast approve such an event but require so much from our own osgeo code sprint events?
    • aghisla: because here the decision is simple, does not involve writing our own bureaucracy :)
  • 20:14 Discuss charter and board elections plan
    • jorge have examined lime survey (http://osgeo.limequery.com/index.php/714821/lang-en) and we will use this for the elections
    • jorge is proposing the following timeline: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Talk:Election_2014
    • 20:16 jsanz joins the meeting
    • aghisla: i like limesurvey, I used it in the past and osgeo-fr use it as well for elections since a while
    • jsanz: I'd prefer to do it all the election before august, so most of the people are not on vacations, more or less
    • 20:19 CameronShorter joins the meeting
    • discussion about how many new members will OSGeo accept. Numbers are varying between 20 and 30 up to 'all' people.
    • CameronShorter: An alternative would be to define a criteria for automatically accepting a charter member (eg PSM of a osgeo project)
    • dmorissette: I see the potential value in CameronShorter's idea, but unfortunately it could be complicated to manage, so I prefer to keep things simple, FrankW concurs with dmorissette.
    • Discussion result: we are tight of time, we stick with the old procedure for this time and start to organize things for next election process
    • CameronShorter: Ok, propose: Cameron draft a proposed voting process within 48 hrs, community review for 1 week, will include auto accepting as charter members people voted into specific positions within OSGeo roles, plus up to a fixed number (10) open positions.
