  • 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 and
  • 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 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.)
  • On behalf of the OSGeo Foundation, the Board express deep sympathies and condolences to Frank Wamerdam, Former President of OSGeo
