Partial: Gido Griese (Win7Mac), Paul Healey (sixwheeledbeast)

Absent: Joerg Reisenweber (DocScrutinizer05)

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • DocScrutinizer/joerg_rw stepped down from Council?
  • Transition to Maemo e.V., referendum
  • Open points, karma

Topic (DocScrutinizer/joerg_rw stepped down from Council?):

  • A longer discussion about whether DocScrutinizer/joerg_rw stepped down from council, or not?
    At least he said so on TMO a few times, but did not yet announce something to Council or on mailing list. Also he did not yet answer to a mail sent by juiceme (in private). Neither did he appear for the last 4 weeks meetings.
    Therefore the Council sees him fully absent. And will try to get an official statement from him once more.

Topic (Transition to Maemo e.V., referendum):

  • Juiceme's post request-for-comments on TMO about the relationship of the Council <-> the e.V. started to get some user comments.
    This discussion should continue on TMO and be the basis for the referendum text.
  • Juiceme asked chem|st about creation of web pages (sub pages on maemo.org) for the e.V.: techstaff should be asked for arrangement and giving rights to board members (i.e. juiceme, nieldk).

Topic (Open points, karma):

  • Short discussion abut open points. Especially the karma system.
  • Karma recalculation is okay, only wiki edits (according to Doc) should not work correctly.
  • Another point is/was the CSS bug on https://wiki.maemo.org.

Action Items:
  • -- old items:
  • Check if karma calculation/evaluation is fixed. - Karma calculation should work, only wiki entries (according to Doc) not considered. To be cross-checked ...
  • NielDK to prepare a draft for letter to Jolla. - Obsolete

I added support for changing the nrl:maxCardinality property of an rdfs:Property from one to many. Earlier Martyn Russel reverted such an ontology change as this was a blocker for the Debian packaging by Michael Biebl.

We only support going from one to many. That’s because going from many to one would obviously imply data-loss (a string-list could work with CSV, but an int-list can’t be stored as CSV in a single-value int type – instead of trying to support nonsense I decided to just not do it at all).

More supported ontology changes can be found here.

Not sure if people care but this stuff was made while listening to Infected Mushroom.

Partial: (xes), Paul Healey (sixwheeledbeast), Philippe Coval (rZr)

Absent: Niel Nielsen (nieldk), Joerg Reisenweber (DocScrutinizer05)


Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • Meeting minutes posted
  • Spam attack on wiki.m.o
  • Transition to Maemo e.V., referendum and ...


Topic (Meeting minutes posted):

  • Short discussion about (delayed) posted minutes of meetings and midgard and its way to run/create TMO posts for those minutes.

Topic (Spam attack on wiki.m.o):

  • Currently maemo.org experienced a spam attack. From some IP rangess known for spamming.
  • It was 'successful' on some of the wiki pages, but tried to attack also other maemo.org sites.
  • It was recognized and posted by a user on TMO. Apparently it was just a minor change and easy to recover.
  • Techstaff set up some firewall rules to block those IPs and get rid of their sniffing/spamming.

Topic (Transition to Maemo e.V., referendum and membership registration):

  • Another discussion on the referendum regarding the "Maemo council and election rules" and the way to prepare/publish it to user base.
  • Referendum should be about:
    Win7Mac: I suggested - specify council duties so that it remains the major active party of community work AND honours the fact that Nokia got replaced by our own community organization, not only in regards to board 23:20
    Win7Mac: - rework council election rules incl. §6 (professional interests) and honoring the fact that Karma system is borked ATM, which results in inaccurate calculation of electorate and candidates. This may serve as an interim solution in hope of Karma system being repairable. 23:20
    Win7Mac: besides that, board already executes Council's (and General Assembly's!) rulings, see MC eV bylaws §7 (5): https://etherpad.mozilla.org/AMabik4zeD 23:43
  • ;
  • Regarding the ongoing and required changes on maemo.org sites, juiceme asked about list of users with their access level.


Action Items:
  • -- old items:
  • Check if karma calculation/evaluation is fixed.
  • NielDK to prepare a draft for letter to Jolla.
  • Sixwheeledbeast to clarify the CSS issue on wiki.maemo.org with techstaff.

Attending: Gido Griese (Win7Mac), Paul Healey (sixwheeledbeast), Jussi Ohenoja (juiceme), Niel Nielsen (nieldk), Peter Leinchen (peterleinchen)

Absent: Joerg Reisenweber (DocScrutinizer05)

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • Certificate issue on wiki.m.o
  • Security check on m.o
  • Transition to Maemo e.V., referendum and membership registration

Topic (Certificate issue on wiki.m.o):

  • A certificate on wiki.maemo.org seems to have "refused" to be updated last month. Issue has been reported by user on TMO.
  • Techstaff immediately resolved this. Big THANKS.
  • Sixwheeledbeast expressed something about CSS misbehaviour on wiki pages (due to static.maemo.org). He was asked to write technical details to techstaff directly to get this resolved.

Topic (Security check on m.o):

  • nieldk proposed to do a scan of maemo.org environment
  • It was agreed that he may check maemo.org for latest vulnerabilities and do a general conformity test. NOT without informing our techstaff before doing so (on #maemo-admin or/and via e-mail).

Topic (Transition to Maemo e.V., referendum and membership registration):

  • Discussion on the referendum regarding the "Maemo council and election rules".
  • The referendum should be held regarding the "specification of council duties" and "rework of council rules". Please see this post/thread for more details.
  • It was agreed that the first draft of wording should be prepared by council (juiceme) and it will be publicly discussed on TMO.
  • RzR pointed out to have mentioned last weeks given CoC (Code of Conduct) rules in that thread.

  • Discussion on the "active member sign up".
  • The current form was sent out by chem|st and thanks to juiceme available for all.
  • Some pros and cons were discussed, but in general the form was agreed.
  • Sending way to e.V. for registration was discussed and answered by chem|st earlier that a scanned copy by mail would be fine. Together with some copy of ID/drivers license.
  • Age of registration candidate was discussed. needs to be over 14 and in case of age below 18/21 a parental signature will be needed too.

  • Future of Maemo regarding monetary affairs was asked.
  • Win/Mac gave the number of currently 3378$ (~2600€) to be handed over to e.V. With a view to free/low-cost hosting (IPHH) and free work of our techstaff this could sound sufficient, but will not suffice for long term...

Action Items:
  • Sixwheeledbeast to clarify the CSS issue on wiki.maemo.org with techstaff.
  • juiceme to create a wording draft for the referendum (to be counterchecked by council members).

Meeting held 2014-09-02 on FreeNode, channel #maemo-meeting (logs)

Attending: Craig Woodward (Woody14619), Gido Griese (Win7Mac), Ruediger Schiller (chem|st), Paul Healey (sixwheeledbeast), Jussi Ohenoja (juiceme), Philippe Coval (rZr), Niel Nielsen (nieldk), Peter Leinchen (peterleinchen)

Absent: Joerg Reisenweber (DocScrutinizer05)

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • NielDK's resignation
  • Discussion on Maemo e.V. and Council rules
  • Code of Conduct

Topic (NielDK's resignation):

  • NielDk joined in even he was not expected to appear after his resignation post.
  • NielDk explained his view on Maemo.org and council/e.V. and the reasons that lead to his decision. I think this quote of NielDK [23:36]: "Let me extend a bit, I think Doc is correct in wanting the council to be the speach organ for the community, towards board, but it is not deciding what the board should accept or do (eV or HiFo), the board cant legally 100% function like that" expresses it the most.
  • At the end of the meeting NielDK was convinced to resign from his resignation. And keep staying active member of Council and board of MC e.V..

Topic (Discussion on Maemo e.V. and Council rules):

  • The discussion faded into the transition to maemo e.V. and again the Council rules.
  • Another quote of Woody14619 [23:40] explains the situation we are in: "There are 3 points of contention: (legal) ownership/liability, (technical) operation, and (community) input and direction. Splitting liability from operation is the issue."
  • Board (e.V.) is the legal representation of maemo.org. And will take all legal responsibilities.
  • The role of e.V. seen by DocScrutinizer is only acting as cashier. But this does not fit the structure!
  • Another reason for clashing seems to be the pretending of "council rules". Council will still be elected by garage members (no change).
    But council election rules may be changed by board (2/3 majority).

  • Short conclusion (by peterleinchen): Council does not operate maemo.org, but eV does. Council is concentrator of community will (and speech organ to board/e.V.). Council will be elected from garage.m.o members. Council cannot force board to act illegally.
    Board is the legal owner (legally responsible). Board is therefore the entity that "governs" maemo.org. Board can change bylaws (also: council election rules) by 2/3 majority.
    The MCeV is an entity and chain of command is "General Meeting>Board>Council"
  • DocScrutinizer joined the channel after the meeting and claimed he just defended the "MAEMO COUNCIL AND ELECTION RULES"

  • Question came up, how much member really care about the community or whether community is already gone (due to so less votes (~100) against sent out tokens (~5800).

Topic (Code of Conduct):

  • RzR asked about to set up a Code of Conduct for maemo.org.
  • Please see the links as examples, like debian kde github mozilla
