- approve last meeting minutes:
We need answers on at least 2 item urgently:
- what is the status of the paper selection process
- can we get registration started with a check_button indicating
if the person registering need help with travel expenses.
Both are needed to schedule travels and booking tickets earlier allows
to get significantly cheaper flights tickets.
The Advisory Board meeting is confirmed to take place the day before.
We need an agenda for that day.
We should have talks from at least OpenOffice, KDE and printing (CUPS).
We need to identify speakers ASAP to handle travel.
- Leslie Proctor joined to talk about PR issues:
When something is potentially "breaking the news", we should
coordinate before doing the publication.
