Agenda
  Board Chair Election

  Membership application question from Dave
  Security Test Day
  Next Meeting Time

The meeting started and nominations for Board Chair
  Dave offered himself as a nominee and then withdrew himself
  Ralph nominated Bear
  Simon nominated Kev

  A small discussion ensued about who the Chair can be and what the
responsibilities are - the Chair does not have to be a board member
and the responsibilites are administrative (note taking, meeting running)

  3 votes for Bear, 1 for Kev

  Bear was elected to be the Chair

Small discussion about when the meeting will be, Peter reminded us
that weekly was suggested before. Consensus suggested weekly.

FOSDEM preparation discussion
  It was pointed out that we cannot discuss preparations as we do not
yet know what the FOSDEM folks have approved for us.
  Ralph agreed to start on the wiki page for FOSDEM.

IoT Liason Report
  Peter reported about receiving a liason request from ISO TC 122
(logistics stuff)

  Discussion about what ISO TC 122 is and what they wanted us to do.

  It was brought up that Mozilla is starting a presence working group
and that quite a few XMPP folk are lurking

  Other groups who also work with the XSF were discussed (Cisco, ISO/IEC)

  The role of the XSF was discussed and consensus was that the board
should take an active role in working with the Council who will
nominate two members (minimum) to be a Liason Work Team and then the
Board ratifies that choice.

Membership Application question
  Deferred to next Board Meeting

Security Test Day
  Simon talked about how we need good documentation so that Operators
and others can be pointed to how they can improve their servers or
clients and that we should be very vocal about the upcoming event.

  He will post to jdev@ mailing list about getting server groups to
work on the documents.

  XMPP.net was also brought up as a great resource

Agenda additions?
  Kev mentioned that we need to talk about GSoC - added for next week

Executive Director, Treasurer and Secretary positions
  It was noted that these appointments were defered until the new year
so that the new Board members can become more familiar with members
who could be considered for the roles.
