[Foundation] UPDATE from Board Meeting

Today's meeting of the JSF Board of Directors just ended. As we all
know, this has been a time of ferment within the Jabber community, and
specifically within the JSF itself. The Board has passed an important
resolution that I think addresses most of the concerns raised by those
who recently proposed changing the name of the JSF. Because I must craft 
the specific text of that resolution and receive approval from the Board 
regarding that wording, I will not announce that resolution until later 
today or possibly tomorrow. However, given the current circumstances and
the need to reach broad agreement regarding the resolution approved
today before moving forward, the Board has decided to postpone the annual 
meeting of the JSF by three weeks, from August 27 to September 17. This 
will result in changes to the schedule for Board and Council elections as 
well. Specifically, the elections schedule is now as follows:

1. August 21:  Board and Council position papers due

2. August 22 - September 2: Discussion / Questions

3. September 3 - 17: Proxy Voting

4. September 17 @ 17:00 UTC: Annual Meeting

Please see my earlier announcement for more detailed information about 
the elections process:


Thank you.
