No more feedback was received on Matthews draft of a membership survey,
that was sent to the board maiinglist earlier. Nyco mentions that he is in
progress of writing some feedback. Matthew will wait for that, then turn
the draft into a form ready for sending.

2) Fundraising and financing

Guus has send out an email to the XSF Treasurer earlier today, requesting

Nyco proposes to start an online shop that sells swag, to generate some
income. Georg warns that permission to use the Jabber trademark might be
needed. Guus mentions that swag is already sold at FOSDEM, implying that
it's possible to sell non-Jabber-trademarked swag.

Nyco already did some legwork on this, and agrees to draft a plan for
starting an online store.

3) Executive Officer replacement

Matthew states that Ralphs (who was not attending) input is desirable on
this topic.

Matthew states that the XSF Bylaws state that we have an executive officer.

Matthew and Guus raise the issue of not having clear on the definition of
the responsibilities of an Executive Officer, which prevents meaningful
progress on the issue of appointing one.

Martin agrees to collect information on the role and responsibilities of
the executive officer, to be discussed during the next board meeting.
