Hi members,

Sorry the for being late. This is last week's Board meeting minutes.

Meetings are held weekly in xmpp:xsf at muc.xmpp.org?join every thursday
at 2:30pm UTC. If you want to add an item for the agenda[0] for a next
meeting, please start a thread on this list and poke a board member to
add it.


# Welcome

All present: Guus, MattJ, pep., ralphm, Seve

# Add Jonas to iteam

All in favor.

# Sponsorship mail

Ralph sent the updated text for the email and will send the actual email
to sponsors tomorrow (last Friday). He will also modify it slightly to
ask for new sponsors and send it to members@, standards@, and
operators at .

# Hire Comms person

Pep has reached out to Peter (treasurer) who says who don't have any
template contract. We would then need to first hire a lawyer to do this.

Ralph mentions he's received a suggestion from a mystery company
familiar with XMPP and the XSF that would like to help out. Guus asks
about their motivation to help, to no avail.

Pep asked around to marketing people and lawyers, waiting for replies.

Guus would prefer not to go down the path of having to draw up contracts
if possible.

# Infrastructure Team Budget

Ralph would like to make a difference between "can iteam spend money"
and "can iteam have a budget of their own", to which he answers yes /
maybe.

He also says currently only Board and the ED are able to enter into
agreements.

MattJ to come back with numbers/a plan for board to approve.

# GSoC

Student application phase closed. 8 proposals including some promising
ones.

# Close

Date of next is today 2020-04-09, in 6 minutes.

Thanks all.
