1 openSUSE Jitsi instance for Board calls
- First attempt was not working properly. we tested the instance but for some the audio and/or video was not working. For this meeting the board used the old platform.
- Outcome: Inform mstrigl and test again the instance and see if the issues are solved.
2 Extra topic - Missing public minutes
- Gerald: checked the published minutes and some are still missing and not published.
- Marina: she has two pending minutes to send out. She will circulate the draft for a final review.
- Proposal from Gerald: for speeding up the publishing, just wait for the feedback from two board members and then send out the final minutes to the list.
3 Community platform domain
- The board got a request from marketing community people for using opensu.se domain
- Vinz asked for more info like goal and scope.
- Marketing people compared what Fedora is using now for community services like for example URL shortner.
- Issue: the proposed URL is owned by an individual community member.
- Simon told that about 2 years ago the owner was in favour to transfer the domain to the project.
- Gerald suggests to try to ask first informally, not directly as board, and try to ask what the owner is willing to do now.
AI: Vinz will try to contact the owner.
- The discussion was moved to a generic level, trying to understand if there are other domains to possibly register and if they are tracked somewhere.
- Geographical domains should only be used for localized community topics.
- Owner should be the owner of the openSUSE trademark or a group of trusted people.
- In case of conflicts the board will resolve the conflict.
AI All: List and document the existing domains
AI: Gerald replies to Ish for sharing what we discussed about geographical domains and solicit feedback.
