Please see below the Meeting Minutes of the openSUSE Board. We welcome any feedback and recommend to use the opensuse-project mailing list so more people can participate. As always the openSUSE Board is reachable through board@openSUSE.org
May 20, 7-9pm UTC Participants: Michael Löffler (michl) Bryen Yunashko (suseROCKs) Pascal Bleser (yaloki)
List of topics: *Foundation We'll investigate more into the creation of an openSUSE foundation. We reached out already to Novell how they feel about and received positive feedback. The foundation at the beginning should be a more independent body then openSUSE is today and should make it easier to collect donations in a transparent way to use directly for community efforts.
*Expanse spotlight.o.o to Board Members All openSUSE Board members will have access to spotlight.opensuse.org to post/blog there.
*openSUSE Membership requests The membership requests still are a pretty manual process. We imported out of users.opensuse.org another bunch of requests and are in the process of evaluation. But we need to admit we could have been faster with that.
*Status of "ambassador program" The Ambassador program will be announced soon by zonker (meanwhile happened
*Add features to openFATE without being member? During community week the request was stated several times to make it possible to add new features for non-members as well. We had a discussion about it and the Board recommends to make this request happen as we think there are more up then down sides. See also Feature 306460
