+the meeting. Some items from the minutes may not be listed if the action was
+not significant enough to warrant a listing here.

+ITEM: Wiki license
+OPENED: 2013-06-27
+Request for translation lead to the realization we don't have a license on
+the wiki pages. License for future contributions will be CC-BY-SA, for
+existing wiki pages the situation is unclear. SFLC will be contacted for
+Julien suggested to use MIT after last week's decision for CC-BY-SA. MIT
+allows us to move content from the wiki into documentation without having to
+worry about the license.
+Licensing information has been added to the wiki
+ACTION: Matt D to contact SFLC for pre-existing content

+OPENED: 2013-08-08
+HSBC closed our checking account with no notice. The monthly "analysis fee"
+used to come out of the savings account if the checking account was negative
+but apparently HSBC changed that without notice and then closed our account.
+ACTION: Stuart K to re-open a new account or change banks

+OPENED: 2013-08-08
+Google provides some money to the sponsoring organisation. We need to check
+our status as org and whether we've gotten this in the last years and make
+sure we get it this year.
+ACTION: Stuart K to check previous/current mentor payments
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: 501(c)(3)
+OPENED: 2013-08-22
+We lost 501(c)(3) status because the tax returns for the last 3 years didn't
+get filed on time. This was a surprise, but the IRS appears to be much
+rougher this year. SFLC advises that re-application would be hard, including
+the need to prove we won't miss any returns in the future.
+Without the 501(c)(3) we are a non-tax exempt entity
+An alternative option is to join an umbrella org to do the tax-related stuff
+for us, e.g. Software in the Public Interest, Software Freedom Conservancy,
+Apaache Foundation, Eclipse Foundation.
+ACTION: Board members to read up on potential umbrella orgs
