+## Items discussed
+[[!format txt """
+ITEM: & related domain status
+We're now going through other related domains like,, etc. to see what else needs to be renewed
+ACTIONS: Keith and Simon to figure out all of the domains we're currently hosting
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: XDC2020 invoices status
+Manasi wasn't present, so skipped for this meeting
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: XDC2021
+Website is almost ready, registration form is done, CfP form done, copied
+relevant content from last year, and should have a DNS redirect on
+in the near future. CFP announcement is already done, and the board voted to
+host this conference virtually this year. Also, we're updating the travel
+sponsorship policy to include virtual conference expenses (this change was
+approved last year but we never updated the policy content). The board also
+decided to go with the same XDC schedule as last year.
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: XDC2022
+We've finished the RfP draft and will send it along with the CfP announcement.
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: XDC2022 sponsors
+Daniel had a chance to kick off sponsor nagging, we've already gotten Intel on
+board so far
+STATUS: Pending
+Harry wasn't able to find any email addresses for the HDMI forum so they sent
+the letter regarding HDMI 2.1 to their employer's VESA board member. Once that
+person gets back from vacation they should receive it.
+STATUS: Pending
+We had a student inquire about EVoC that didn't get answered, apparently we
+don't actually have anyone handling EVoC anymore and haven't had anyone in a
+ACTIONS: Trevor can't make the time committment to run it anymore, so Lyude is
+going to start an email thread with them + the board to see what they suggest if
+we should continue EVoC and if so, what we need to do in order to bring the
+project back online. Once we have a better idea of that, Lyude will send out
+announcements to try to find volunteers to help run the program if we decide to
+keep it going.
+NOTE: This isn't the end of student outreach for! Regardless of the
+outcome for EVoC, the current goal for the board is to get involved with
+outreachy for next year.
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: Sharing non-redistributable game traces within members
+Tomeu from Collabora proposed an idea to the board where we would work with game
+companies (likely through a liason) in order to enable the sharing of api traces
+for non-redistributable video games so that they can be used for things like
+debugging and CI. We're not entirely clear on all the details for how we'll pull
+this off quite yet.
+ACTIONS: Anholt assigned to look into this with SPI and interested parties to
+see how we could do this
+STATUS: Pending
+ITEM: Equinox meeting
+We need to have a meeting with Equinox (formally Packet) to become familiar with
+them since they sponsor our cloud hosted services.
+ACTIONS: Mark Filion will set up a meeting with Equinox sometime this month
+STATUS: Pending
