+Three of our four GSoC students passed the mid-term evaluations.
+## Items discussed
+[[!format txt """
+ITEM: XDC paper reviews
+All papers submitted to XDC got reviewed and accepted. There is still room
+for less formal talks.
+ACTION: Martin P to notify authors of acceptance
+STATUS: Complete
+ITEM: GSoC updates
+We have 4 students. One quit for external reasons, the other three
+passed the mid-term evaluations.
+STATUS: Complete
+ITEM: Travel sponsoring
+Three requests for travel sponsoring, from David Hermann, Matthias Hopf,
+Martin Peres. Board voted to approve all of them.
+ACTION: Stuart K is eagerly awaiting receipts
+ITEM: Tax and 501(c)(3)
+The deadline for tax form 990 was missed, so our 501(c)(3) status got
+retracted. We're now in contact with the SFLC to fix this.
+ACTION: Stuart K has a confcall with Eben Moglen
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: Finance
+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
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: GSoC finance
+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
