openSUSE Board Meeting Minutes
Dec 10th, 8pm - 10:20pm CET
Federico Mena Quintero (federico1)
Hendrik Vogelsang (henne)
Michael Löffler (michl)
Bryen Yunashko (suseROCKs)
Pascal Bleser (yaloki)
Joe Brockmeier (zonker), for the first hour

*Advisory Board (zonker)
Proposal get reviewd by Novell's lawyers and then up to the project
mailing list

*Awarding good people
We should award outstanding contributors and good poeple
Everybody agreed, just with what and how to find all valuable

*openSUSE conference (zonker)
probably September '09 in the Nuremberg area
Zonker clarified that all openSUSE talks will be public. But there
migth be a few Novell internal talks (eg. company processes)

- We should have a talk with the Board, kind of or meet and great (in
our dev room)
- there is probably an open source project track where openSUSE would
fit to participate -> best to contact mlasars on that (AI: yaloki)

*Creation of thoughts page
Done in the Board wiki

*Board blog
Some feel the board should have its own blog or a seperate channel to
communicate. As already exists its kind of a
simple task to enlarge this to the openSUSE Board. An zonker is not
lonely anmore.
Everybody agreed to do so.
AI: henne to make this happen

*Board's public presence
To increase Board's presence in the community and visibility in the
we agreed on having a public Board Meeting in January together with
the project meeting

Rotate each board member to write an article on a topic the board
agrees to speak to the public on.
