1.1 CC by-sa

A request has been made to explicitly add the Attribution-ShareAlike
license to the newsletter, to allow for it to be distributed / translated
on different websites. The XSF website no longer references a license,
which makes defining one for the newsletter desirable.

Board agrees to have the newsletter published under the
Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) license.

There was a short discussion on auto-updating the license to any newer
version for CC BY-SA, which was rejected in favor of explicitly discussing
any future version update.

1.2 DOAP

A PR has been made to introduce DOAP to the XSF website, providing an a
structured way of retrieving details about listed projects.

Guus raises concerns:

a) DOAP as a protocol seems pretty new/unused.
b) Adding more details to software listing on the XSF website is a slippery
slope, as discussed before.
c) Asking for DOAP data would add hurdles for new projects to be listed

Others Board members + Link Mauve (the requestee) largely disagree,
providing arguments (see chat log).

Time ran out before a conclusion could be reached. Board agreed to pick
this up next meeting.
