Agenda & Minutes

Meeting Frequency

Meeting frequency set to monthly basis. Set to every first Wednesday of the month at 19.00 GMT.  Nonetheless, we should try to keep an eye on the goals set by the board, and keep these on the radar.

Send around WG minutes to Management Team via e-mail after every meeting.

Use e-mail for pressing issues or issues that need attention between Management Team meetings.

Working Group budget proposals

LWG thinks it does not need additional budget for next year (other than the $1,000) outside a $1,000 contingency for engaging legal counsel in the event of a licensing violation claim by a third party.

EWG is still working on some ideas

CWG is working on some community-building actions. Does not have a budget linked to that.

Current donation-drive is now at 76.5% of it’s target. Please promote.

Responsibilities of Management Team

Andy to solicit input from Management Team and Board on codifying the division of responsibilities between the two groups, and to publish these for the benefit of the OSMF members. Will also email regarding quorums for meetings, financial authority and so on.


Requests to CWG

- Could CWG to some social media outreach to find undecided people. (please log in and accept).
