oSC 2020 Conference
There is a sound proposal from a team in Albania who organized
openSource meetings like LibreOffice conference. The community is
motivated in Albania.
Ideally we have new location decided by September.
This sounds great, begone duopoly of Prague and Nuremberg :D
openSUSE Conference & sponsorships (Doug)
Doug reported on the ongoing preparation of openSUSE Conference 2019
Nürnberg. As we are not a legal entity it is difficult to collect
money. Doug working on a workaround
Shirts and Bags are about to be ordered
Doug has raised already the point that at least a separate Account
beneficial for the collection of donations
Board should narrow down the options on an organization and have an
discussion during the public board meeting at oSC
Joining organization like SPI despite the x% charge? Still the issue
there is basically nobody from openSUSE to sign a contragt with SPI -
be SUSE management
A foundation (like the LibreOffice/Document foundation) needs at
least 50k€ to
start-up, e.V. does not need this amount of money. Both models
require a legal
registration, changes to statutes require court approval, basic
being a non-profit organization may even not be changed at all
LibreOffice/Document foundation started just from donations, and
this 50k in a short amount of time.
Discussion is ongoing, but looks like the e.V. is more empowering to
We will try to invite an insider from Document foundation for next
learn about pros/cons of foundation model
I'm glad to see discussions increasing in size every week, just like the
previous board, this one doesn't seem to want to disappoint :P
Most services are interfaced between each other in between (e.g.
channel on discord and IRC).
Different types of users are preferring different channels - in
bridging of different chat technologies was accepted by the community
Some more volunteers are needed as IRC admins. Simon to raise call on
If you are an op in an Freenode IRC channel, and want to bridge with
communication platforms, please familiarize yourself with  if your
has the +r flag set, and send me your irc nickname, channel name, and
you are currently labeled as op, not just +o (although +O is enough).
If you are an admin of a Telegram group, and want to bridge with other
communication platforms, please follow steps 1 and 2 in  and send me
and the group name over email.
As for the rest, Discord and Matrix are 100% bridged already, and we
had any requests regarding Slack/XMPP bridges.
If you wish to discuss the bridges, I'm on IRC (lcp), Matrix
and Discord (@LCP#0968) daily, even during the weekends.
Proposal/decision for writing minutes
Christian initiated the proposal: We should go round robin, with one
exception: Those who did not send out minutes in time has to write
minutes. Accepted by all particiants
The best change of the current board yet ;)
Meeting ended at 2330 CEST
For the minutes: Axel
