[Note the change of time due to DST ending in Europe; North America will also have adjusted then.]

6) AOB
Jonas notes the fresh application [1] for Council, which is nice.
Zash debates whether to stand - Dave would feel happier if there were more candidates with server experience; wonders whether Holger or Guus could be persuaded. Daniel would be happier if there were more candidates; Dave feels that elections are better when they're contested.
Zash mentions the idea of an Election Committee, as a group responsible for nominating positions with consideration beyond popularity, to produce a group who better represents the membership - Daniel thinks there are already enough challenges in motivating people, without the additional challenge of motivating people to motivate other people.

7) Close
Thanks everyone, Tedd, Jonas, all, Jonas.
