+--- Day changed Fri Jan 10 2014
+07:59 < whot_> good morning and happy new year
+07:59 -!- You're now known as whot
+07:59 < agd5f> hi
+07:59 <+alanc> hello
+08:00 < stukreit> hi
+08:01 < marcoz> hi
+08:01 < marcoz> good afternoon and happy new year
+08:03 < whot> keithp, mupuf: ping
+08:03 < mupuf> oh, sorry, I'm here :)
+08:04 <+alanc> it's 6am in Perth, keithp should totally be awake now...
+08:04 * whot wonders if keithp is at lca
+08:04 < whot> oh, right. I guess that'll explain it
+08:04 <+alanc> he was scheduled to give a talk there yesterday, so I hope so
+08:05 <+alanc> http://lca2014.linux.org.au/schedule/30050/view_talk?day=thursday
+08:05 < whot> ok, I suspect he won't show up today then. emmes isn't online here, so let's get started
+08:05 < whot> agenda is again small because we're waiting on Keith for the SPI info
+08:05 < whot> stukreit: are the XDC payments done now?
+08:05 < stukreit> yes, I think he was going to put his foot in the door for that
+08:06 < stukreit> I have not done the top-offs yet.
+08:06 < stukreit> I owe you a sheet outlining the numbers
+08:07 < whot> yes please
+08:07 < stukreit> I have to pay the NRAI fee too.
+08:07 < whot> I think that needs and explanations for non-US people :)
+08:08 < whot> unless you're talking about the NRA of Ireland, in which case we all want an explanation
+08:08 < stukreit> Its some kind of management fee to maintain our standing as a delaware corp
+08:08 <+alanc> it's not something people in the US know much about either
+08:09 < stukreit> "National Registered Agents, Inc" One of these companies that do odious beurocratic magic for you because your magic wand is too small and you're all out of eye-of-newt
+08:12 < whot> hmm, but what do they do?
+08:12 < whot> also, how big is that fee?
+08:12 < stukreit> $189
+08:12 < whot> per year, I suspect?
+08:12 < stukreit> yes
+08:12 < mupuf> whot: let's hope so yeah ;)
+08:13 < stukreit> nrai.com. I won't try to explain it.
+08:14 < mupuf> whot: have you contacted the linuxcon to ask how expensive it would be to be co-located?
+08:15 < mupuf> anyway, I guess I should ask my lab too, so as we can compare
+08:15 < mupuf> I can ask tomorrow how to do it
+08:16 < whot> mupuf: no, not yet, sorry. forgot about it
+08:16 < mupuf> is it still something you want to do?
+08:17 < whot> it's something that we should investigate
+08:17 < mupuf> ack, can I ask you to do that while I ask @ Bordeaux?
+08:18 < mupuf> oh, and I'm getting late for sending the mail for the election
+08:18 < mupuf> I'll do that tomorrow, still have much to do tonight
+08:18 < whot> yeah, I'll do so asap
+08:18 < mupuf> great
+08:19 < whot> http://www.nrai.com/FAQ.aspx seems to have the only actual information
+08:19 < whot> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Registered_agent
+08:21 < marcoz> jk:q
+08:22 < mupuf> marcoz: what is that suppose to mean?
+08:22 < marcoz> mupuf: wrong window. my bad.
+08:22 < whot> mupuf: that his irc window isn't vim :)
+08:22 <+alanc> that marcoz is a vi user
+08:22 < marcoz> and proud of it!
+08:22 < mupuf> ahah
+08:23 < stukreit> emacs? teco?
+08:23 < whot> so, judging from that wikipedia page the NRAI gets my +1
+08:23 <+alanc> just as long as it's not xedit
+08:24 <+alanc> +1 as well for paying NRAI's annual fee
+08:25 < agd5f> +1
+08:25 < stukreit> I didn't think we needed a vote, I'm just informing you that the bill is due.
+08:26 < mupuf> +1
+08:26 < whot> well, same thing :)
+08:27 < whot> I need to remember that +1 doesn't just mean "I agree" in these meetings
+08:27 < mupuf> I have one other thing to say, about hte fosdem, since we seem to have some time
+08:27 < whot> mupuf: go for it
+08:28 < mupuf> great. So, I'll be speaking to FOSDEM about the state of the foundation, what we are doing to it (SPI, change the scope in the bylaws) and asking people to become members, present themselves as candidate for the board and vote
+08:29 < mupuf> I'll start with basically what you said at XDC, whot
+08:29 < mupuf> I'll try to write the slides soon so as I can get them approved
+08:30 < mupuf> just to make sure we are all on the same page
+08:30 < mupuf> is there anything else I should talk about?
+08:32 < marcoz> <crickets chirping>
+08:33 < mupuf> marcoz: :p
+08:33 < whot> might be worth emphasising the expansion from X to mesa, wayland, etc.
+08:34 < whot> there are likely more wayland-interested people there than x peopl
+08:34 < mupuf> yeah, that's what I meant by change of scope
+08:34 < whot> cool
+08:35 < mupuf> well, I'm glad I didn't forget anything
+08:35 * alanc can't think of anything else off hand
+08:37 < marcoz> nothing on hand either?
+08:38 < whot> ok, let's move on before this gets out of hand
+08:39 < whot> mupuf: regarding the election, did we ever agree on a timeline for that?
+08:39 < mupuf> whot: kind of, yeah
+08:39 < whot> ok, must improve my search-fu then
+08:40 < mupuf> we said something like we should send the request sooner rather than later
+08:40 < mupuf> as in, I was supposed to do it by the end of december
+08:41 < mupuf> and then, we'll leave FOSDEM people a week to think about involving
+08:41 < mupuf> and then, the election should beging
+08:41 < mupuf> begin*
+08:41 < whot> ok, found it. meeting from 06/12/13
+08:41 < mupuf> I need to check again the bylaws to check the timing
+08:42 < agd5f> IIRC, it should have happened in 2013, but we've slipped to the next year the last few elections
+08:43 <+alanc> as I recall, the bylaws don't give exact dates, just something like "once a year"
+08:43 <+alanc> the election committee wiki has a better calendar guideline
+08:45 < mupuf> alanc: I was talking about the time between when we send the call for candidates and the time the election starts
+08:45 <+alanc> that should be in the election wiki
+08:46 < whot> any other items on the agenda?
+08:46 < agd5f> mupuf, that's in the wiki, not the bylaws IIRC
+08:47 < mupuf> ack, I'll have a look then
+08:52 < whot> mupuf: FOSDEM is in 3 weeks or so, right? what's your ETA for the call for nominations?
+08:52 < mupuf> this week end
+08:52 < whot> cool
+08:52 < mupuf> I'll just reuse the previous
+08:52 < mupuf> call
+08:54 < whot> ok. if there's no other items on the list I'm gonna call the meeting closed for today. thanks for showing up, next meeting is in the usual 2 weeks from now
+08:55 -!- alanc changed the topic of #xf-bod to: X.Org Foundation Board: wfh! (work from home) | Next Meeting: Jan 23, 2pm pst
