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.

3 Community platform domain

  • The board got a request from marketing community people for using 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.
