Foundation Board Minutes for Special Meeting, 23 February 2018





  • (URGENT) Marina outreachy email (Carlos)
  • US events box (Allan)


  • (URGENT) Marina outreachy email (Carlos)
    • Request from Marina for GNOME to commit to the spring-autumn 2018 round of Outreachy. Is looking for a commitment for one internship, costing $6,500. If sponsorship is found for GNOME we won't have to pay; otherwise we will.
    • The $6,500 is in the budget already.
    • VOTE: Authorize $6,500 for Outreachy in May 2018. PASSED UNANIMOUSLY
  • US events box (Allan)
    • Alexandre and Carlos would like more time to think about it. Alexandre is unsure about some items in the budget. Carlos would like to look at the foundation's budget. Question about how urgent it is to replace the box.
    • Meg - there used to be an events box in North America and not having one has restricted activities.
    • Emily has recently volunteered to have the old box returned. Neil can talk to her again. However, it's worth noting that the budget is more about the content rather than the box itself.
    • Scale is March 8-11 - we're pushing it to be ready for then, but it would be great to have a proper setup - it's the biggest North American FOSS event.
    • Waiting until Tuesday won't make a huge difference - let's wait until then, so that Nuritzi can join the call.
