  • Main income: membership fees. Bad payment morale.
  • Biggest expenditure: tax advisor (needed for the non-profit status)
  • All costs can be covered if all members pay their fees.
  • Current balance: 1039.49€ (on Dec 31st, 2013 it was 1570.35 €)
  • In the meantime about 500 € were spent on the FoswikiCamp.

Auditors report

ArthurClemens was appointed as an auditor on the last GA, but left the project in the meantime. PadraigLennon gave his audit result:
  • One assumed inconsistency between the Paypal report and the Finance web was found regarding the fee payment of CrawfordCurrie on 2012-10-25.
  • It turned out as a misinterpretation of the Paypal report. Neither money was missing nor overcharged.

The GA accepted the reports and exonerated the board.

Election of two auditors for the next year

CrawfordCurrie and PadraigLennon were appointed as auditors for the next GA.

VII. Proposals received from the members for Bylaws


VIII. Review of current Task teams

  • See discussion in the logs for details. Starting at +1h20m
  • Current active TaskTeams at the moment are: Infrastructure, Security and Release
  • Stalled TaskTeams need to be reviewed, team memberships, too
  • Infrastructure / Translation
    • "pootle is dead", alternatives needed
      Clarification: The pootle product / project itself is not dead. However, our pootle installation has died and the configuration appears to have been lost. So it's a reasonable opportunity to look at alternatives. Weblate appears to have much better git integration.
      -- GeorgeClark - 18 May 2014
    • Suggestion to fold the Translation team into the Infrastructure team
    • Migration to git should be pushed
  • Release Team

IX. Misc
