Discussion: =========== - The ATK press release for LinuxWorld. People were generally comfortable with it with the current modifications (less hype, something to download, clear that the target is developers). - A press release for 1.4.1. Timing on this release is approximately 5-6 weeks, which works well for a press release. Need to get list of enhancements to Leslie so she can draft something. - Email/CVS policy. Went over current provisions briefly, no objections. - Membership committee. Dan indicated that things were moving slowly and we might need to add someone else to the committee to help out. - Apparently there is an opportunity to have a GNOME/KDE interoperability hothouse at the X Technical conference/ALS. Rooms and network connections are available, but someone would have to organize, make sure that the right people showed up, etc. _______________________________________________ foundation-list mailing list email@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/foundation-list
