Minutes from 2016-05-23 were accepted with three votes.
Everyone gets emails sent to the MWG address. Most are not actionable: no decision on wire transfers yet, SOTM signups are not for MWG to deal with, and other issues require access to CiviCRM.
A member asked for a way to pay without filling in a Google Docs form. Turns out that for alternative payments one needs to fill one of two forms. It seems we don't have access to tables for these forms. We need to get rid of these forms, transferring them either to WordPress or to an external stand-alone web page, that sends a mail to MWG.
Ilya to check if it is possible to add these forms to join.osmf.org's wordpress.
Also it's impossible for any member of MWG to check if the money from wire transfer have reached the OSMF account. When do we add a member to CiviCRM then?
Michael to talk to Frederik about the wire transfers.
Paul and Ilya have full CiviCRM access. To give it to people outside the board, we need some kind of NDA to sign, because of members' privacy and financial information.
Jonathan to prepare a NDA form.
Paul to ask LWG is the NDA form they're working on might apply to MWG.
Ilya to grant CiviCRM access to members who sign it.
Steve asked for read-only access, to not break anything accidentally. Perhaps Ilya should ask everyone which kind of access they want.
osmf-talk Mailing List
Since membership and subscription status for the osmf-talk@ mailing list are closely linked, MWG members should also be admins for that list. Some unsubscription inquiries are sent to the MWG address.
Paul to talk to admins and get himself and Ilya set as owners of osmf-talk list.
From that moment, osmf-talk@ subscribers management duty goes to MWG.
Ilya to update the list of MWG responsibilities.
Promoting membership at or after SOTM
There will be a table for joining OSMF. Maybe ask any of OSMF speakers to invite people to join the OSMF.
Maybe create a banner ad for joining OSMF, or mention it on SOTM or donation drive banners. Run it before the elections?
