- approve last meeting minutes:
- Guadec 3:
Looking from last year practice, it's a huge amount of work to
organize, we started 2 month in advance last year and it was too late
We need a firm date and facility, we are getting sponsors interested but
we need an hard deadline to move forward.
We need to ask more directly possible speakers whether they intend
to give a speach, and who expects to talk.
Madrid or Sevilla are two candidate places.
- Font searches:
Not much progress during Jim's surgery, but Jim will restart work on it.
- Update on incorporation
The work is carried on by the lawyers.
- Update on GNOME 2
Seems to make progresses with the new releases of Gtk2 and gnome-libs.
