This board meeting is scheduled for the 15th of October 2015 at 14.00 UTC through IRC and follow up voting by email.


Current items

  • roll call
  • appoint meeting chair, meeting scribe/secretary
  • Review and approve past minutes: Board Meeting 2015-08-13
  • brief treasurer report (including sponsors list)
  • naming a president, treasurer, secretary for 2015/2016
  • On behalf of the OSGeo Foundation, the Board express deep sympathies and condolences to Frank Wamerdam, Former President of OSGeo
  • Cover travel expenses for President to attend OpenGIS conference in Moscow http://gisconf.ru/
  • Cover costs of the Build a Drone Workshop at FOSS4G-Seoul
  • discuss working with the UN-GIS team. Including an invite to join a working group on Geospatial Information and Services for Disasters
  • pick 2 days for a Board face-to-face meeting (or "Board Sprint") to outline goals and vision for the foundation
  • Setup private file sharing system for the Board (paid DropBox accounts, or other options) see http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Board_infrastructure and https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/1547
  • clarify Geo4all position within OSGeo and cancel the Edu-Committe as it is non active and already replaced by geo4all (see osgeo main page) - rather than canceling the vote should be about a transition from Edu-committee to geo4all - it will take some time and effort to make sure the infrastructure is not lost and it is properly labeled
  • ISPRS_2016 coordination
  • discuss possibility of OSGeo software signing certificates [Anita] (i.e. OSX seems to not allow installation of unsigned software by default --> user needs to change configuration --> signed software would appear more professional. On the QGIS mailing list, we were discussing that we could have a QGIS.org certificate but since QGIS depends on so many other OSGeo tools - which would also have to be signed - it might be more appropriate to have an OSGeo certificate.)
