Dear Foundation Members,

Michael Bauer has put together a comprehensive (IMHO) list of topics to be
discussed during the first Board meeting.

Since I am a newly elected Board Member and I do not know some of you, I
would like to receive your opinion about these points. Feel free to write to
the list or to me.

Thanks for your help,

Marco Palombi

Oggetto: [Board] Agenda Discussion

We have to put together an agenda to go along with the formal meeting
announcement.  Attached is an outline of just such an agenda.  These
agendas usually have two parts, a discussion and an action section.  They
are setup that way because the utlimate goal of the Board Meeting is to
take some actions that materially affects the direction of the

So, to really come up with the final agenda we need to start identifying
the action items we need to take.  I've taken the liberty of at least
identifying the things we might need to act on.  It seems like we need to
take some action on:

  Intellectual Property Rights
  Jabber Marketing
  Sponsorship Initiatives
  Budget Review

What I'd like to do with this email is to make sure we agree
on the overall approach for the Meeting and these set of initiatives.  If
we can get overall consensus on this, then I'd suggest we tackle each
action item independently to come up with the individual proposals.  What
do you think?
