2. Topics for discussion
2.1 GSOC Mentor summit
Flow in an email to board asked if the XSF is willing to reimburse all
three mentors who are going to the Google Mentor summit in Munich this
year (instead of the usual two). He adds that since most mentors will
be either in Germany or close to Germany travel cost will be pretty
low and probably lower than what Google gives to the XSF.

Vote on "I'l motion that the XSF offers to reimbursre travelling costs
for all three GSoC mentors of this year, to attend the GSoC Mentor
summit, provided that the total costs are not more than the stipend
that the XSF received from Google."
