+[13:26:56] [I have joined #xf-bod]
+[13:27:22] <Lyude> (that date is definitely wrong, will fix it after the meeting)
+[13:27:53] <samuelig> why? is't it 15 days after this one?
+[13:27:58] <samuelig> isn't*
+[13:28:04] <Lyude> oh yeah it is
+[13:28:05] <Lyude> oops
+[13:28:13] <Lyude> didn't realize it still set it at 7 pm which is correct
+[13:28:47] <Lyude> hwentlan, mdnavare - either of you two coming
+[13:30:22] <Lyude> Agenda: domain status, requesting ledger data, XDC2021 invoices status, XDC2021, XDC2022, GSoC/Outreachy/EVoC, HDMI 2.1 split specification proposal?, MIPI alliance and CSI
+[13:31:26] <mfilion> so are we meeting here or jitsi?
+[13:31:37] <Lyude> mfilion: we are meeting here, I posted the link higher up
+[13:52:30] <Lyude> mdnavare: poke?
+[13:56:26] <anholt_> so, treasurer report has been the point where we have actually sanity-checked the spi books
+[13:56:45] <anholt_> if we give up on the treasurer report, then we're not doing that any more and treasurer is just "make sure that invoices flow"
+[13:57:04] <anholt_> so do we get rid of tracking our own ledger?
+[13:57:12] <anholt_> it's the hardest work the treasurer does
+[13:57:23] <danvet> afaik it's not been updated since a while
+[13:57:35] <anholt_> yeah, I don't know that mdnavare has been keeping it up
+[13:57:44] <anholt_> we're not the 501c3, spi is
+[13:57:52] <anholt_> so they're doing that
+[13:58:05] <anholt_> but our bylaws do require a treasurer's report iirc
+[13:58:37] <anholt_> but I don't know that the bylaws require that we track our own ledger, it could just be the treasurer using the spi data to explain what's happened for the year
+[13:59:53] <danvet> anholt_, yeah that's my idea
+[14:00:10] <danvet> until maybe we have someone really enthusiastic about monies tracking again
+[14:02:09] <anholt_> syncing was really hard (especially when spi does some correction to a few dollar donation split between projects earlier in the year or whatever), and getting spi to produce raw data for us to slurp in has proved impossible. so, I think just trusting their data is the right choice, and that lets the treasurer do just the important work (invoices) rather than busywork. and then just once a year explain to the public where our money came from and went
+[14:02:09] <anholt_> at a high level.
