Hi members,

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

Present: Guus, pep., Seve
Excused: MattJ
Absent: ralphm

# Add Edward 'emus' Maurer to Commteam

Emus has been helping commteam lately, taking care of organizing the
newsletter when activity in the team had gone slightly quiet.

All present (3) in favor.

Congrats emus.

# ISOC Foundation grant

The Internet Society foundation is offering a grant to which non-profits
can apply to in order to help with the current situation. Members are
welcome to suggest ideas.

Please do so before the 17th. Board approval is still required so please
take this into consideration.

# Adopt a character

Guus would like to know where it's at, and if board needs to do
something to move it along.

All present decide to wait for an update from Flow who's volunteered for

Update from Flow after the meeting says he is more or less blocked on
CIVS[2]. If CIVS were to offer an option to generate N vote URLs then we
could let every member draw exactly one URL from memberbot (with few
changes to the code).

Flow encourages people to go and upvote the issue[2]. (And if anybody
who knows Perl is willing to help.)

Guus seems to be ok to wait some more.

# Commitments - Hire Comms person

MattJ and pep. have had a chat with someone doing markety things.
They've tried to explain the situation and what the plans are (why even
ask for marketing). Pep. says she seemed to have a bit more clues
compared to when she joined the meeting.

Now waiting for a sketch on what she thinks we can do, alongside with
her rate.

# Close

Guus note next week is ascension day.

Date of next: +1W.

Thanks all.
