Short discussion of work done since the past meeting.
1. Reasons for joining OSMF
For the Management Team, Mike Collinson presents an outline of their current "Why would companies want to join the OSMF" reasoning in preparation for fleshing out our public message.
(Henk joins during discussion.)
Board discusses ways in which diversity can be improved in the project and the organisation. Kate proposes (and takes the task of) convening a meeting of interested parties.
3. Open Invention Network
OSMF has been asked by the Open Invention Network to participate in a "patent non-aggression pledge". Board decides to let MT handle this.
Potentially 11th of March.
