  • RzR announced contemplation period on tmo and peterleinchen on mo (news/announcement) and mailing list.
  • There was a discussion about advertising Maemo e.V. membership during current election period. Board should contact candidates and ask about their plans/concerns regarding Maemo e.V.
  • All candidates will be invited to join #maemo-meeting channel to hold a "talk". And kindly remembered to declare themselves on wiki and also on tmo.

Topic (HiFo board elections):

  • HiFo board elections are overdue (once a year). Current members are: Jaffa, GeneralAntilles, chem|st and Win7Mac.
  • As council is in charge to announce election, current board just continues. And should do so until the transfer from HiFo to Maemo e.V. has been done.

Topic (IRC, maemo e.V., Miscellaneous):

  • No news from GeneralAntilles regarding the IRC chan op situation.
  • The action item "sub pages on m.o for e.V." was deleted as we do have dedicated e.V. pages on the wiki.
  • A coding competition -to be organized by next council- was mentioned. Short discussion about devices/prices/donations.
  • Furthermore the still misleading "donate banner". Due to the still not created bank account, nothing was done here up to now.
  • The list of Maemo e.V. members might be published, stripped down to show only nicknames. To be confirmed later.
  • The selected Code of Conduct (KDE) still needs to be published on mo.
