Proposed Service Provider Directory changes ACTION: Arnulf
[17:34:54] <seven> I just need to make Arnulf write up what they discussed at the Board Meeting.
[17:36:04] <seven> The idea is that service providers who want to can get "vetted" by the PSC of the projects that they want to provide services for.
[17:36:17]  nhvL is now known as nhv
[17:36:34] <TylerM> So that PSC's can "highlight" individuals/companies as being OSGeo contributors.. right?
[17:36:40] <seven> They should have somebody in the corresponding dev team or have provided translations, or doics or whatever is good for a project.
[17:36:50] <seven> Yes.
[17:36:59] <seven> Its like Karma points
[17:37:02] <TylerM> As a way of helping direct "clients" to people are most involved in OSGeo.
[17:37:14] <seven> Exactly.
[17:37:23] <seven> There is a second way to get Karma
[17:37:34] <seven> by buying oneself into OSGeo as a sponsor.
[17:37:50] <seven> This will be depicted by a clearly distinct symbol
[17:38:12] <seven> so that a service provider can be "blank" (like now all are by default)
[17:38:31] <seven> or have a $$$ Tag (nice golden star...)
[17:38:38] <seven> if they are sponsors
[17:38:52] <TylerM> I'm looking forward to seeing it
[17:38:58] <seven> or they have a golden, blue or grey (depending on the level) wrench
[17:39:13] <seven> if they are core contributers, documenters, translaters, etc.
[17:39:45] <seven> Yes, me too. Again it will probably not happen because Arnulf is a lazy metal dog.
[17:40:14]  seven copies the ideas into the meeting minutes...
