Minutes of the GNOME Board meeting 1 May 2001 From: Daniel Veillard To: email@example.com Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Date: Thu, 3 May 2001 05:50:02 -0400 Minutes of the GNOME Board meeting 1 May 2001 ============================================= Presents: ========= Havoc Pennington (chairing) Miguel de Icaza Raph Levien Daniel Veillard (minutes) Dan Mueth John Heard Owen Taylor Bart Decrem Maciej Stachowiak (:15) Missing: ======== Federico Regrets: ======== Jim Gettys Decisions: ========== - The board selected the Gnome-2.0 Release coordinators Martin Baulig and Sander Vesik, asking them to build the Release Team for Gnome-2.0 with the help of the others candidates - The GNOME Foundation membership proposal has been approved as the GNOME Membership Policy 1.0 Action Done: ============ ACTION: Bart will follow the 'small conferences' meeting and will report in one month => Rebecca will be the Conference Master for Gnome She will double check that Guadec 3 can be done in Spain ACTION: Maciej will post to Gnome-Hacker to get people stepping in as Gnome-2.0 coordinator. => done ACTION: Havoc make sure that we get the 2.0 volunteers and what need to get done to start the release coordinator work => done Action: ======= ACTION: Havoc send the AB list to the board looking for completion of the member liasons. => still pending ACTION: John try to get a Copyright assigment form and procedure for the GNOME Foundation Discussion: =========== - Fundation: not much to report, still some lawyer work needed. - Release coordinators: Martin Baulig, Sander Vesik, George Lebl, Chris Lahey, Jonathan Blandford, Peter Teichman and Dave Camp expressed interest in helping with the GNOME 2.0 release, according to the discussions and plans that came out of GUADEC. Also, Jody Goldberg wants to help on the office/apps part of it. We selected Martin Baulig and Sander Vesik to take the lead on building a Release Team and work with the folks who volunteered to put together a GNOME 2.0 release plan. This will include a listing of all the top-level tasks that need to be accomplished, along with preliminary due-dates for each of these and a full committee roster with specific responsibilities assigned to each team member. We'd like to see quick progress on this, and have at least the committee structure and responsibilities flushed out within 2 weeks. It is relatively clear that the work of doing the release coordination for GNOME 2.0 will be larger than what was needed for GNOME 1.4. We hope that Martin and Sander will be able build a strong team covering the various tasks needed, the following ones were listed (but the list is far from complete): - PR coordinator - documentation/QA coordinator - library freeze - porting - translation - UI freeze - Membership policy: The community had many opportunities to review it. There were no negative feedback. So we adopt the proposal as GNOME Membership Policy 1.0 Interesting points discussed: - we want the Gnome project to stay open to anybody who want to contribute to it - Opening to the ISV community is okay but people should not just use it but helping or contributing the project is still required to qualify.
