Approval Process for Minutes
Board decides unanimously that from now on, minutes will be approved by simple majority in board meetings, rather than “proposed” and “seconded”.
1. Conditional Donations
Board unanimously decides that OSMF generally won’t accept donations that are dependant on some condition to be met before funds are transferred to us. (Donations that come with spending restrictions, like “for hardware only” or similar, are generally ok.)
2. Conflict of Interest Situations
Board unanimously decides that we would like to learn first about a (potential) conflict of interest situation as long as this related to the Board membership before any other group will be informed about the situation.
3. MT Proposal
Board unanimously approves the current version of the “Management Team Proposal” document, with the understanding that it is a living document and hence amenable to change in the future to resolve any outstanding issues.
4. AoA Revision
The AoA revision still requires some details to be hammered out. This will be done on the board email list followed by a circular resolution before it is sent to legal counsel.
5. MapBox request for list of PD users
This topic is being discussed in LWG and they will draft a formal position.
6. Letter of support for Yuwei Lin
Board has been asked for a letter of support (no obligations) for a research project by Yuwei Lin at University of Salford, UK. There are no objections; Simon will handle the contact.
preliminarily, Tuesday 9th July at 22:00 Europe/21:00 UK
