Appoint a Meeting Secretary

  • Paul Spencer volunteered to take minutes


  • Jason:
    • OSGeo/Telascience servers aren't adequate for hosting a robust build environment, Trevor has volunteered some personal resources, but we need to figure out how to cover his costs ($200-$800 / month)
    • If we can find a developer, there may be things that users desire (new functionality)

  • Should we take donations through OSGeo Sponsorship or directly to Trevor through paypal
    • Bob and others against this idea, but Frank points out that sponsorship doesn't really handle small amounts (i.e. $200)
    • OSGeo non-profit paperwork is awaiting processing
  • Need to discuss usage/disbursement guidelines similar to those of OpenLayers and GDAL, perhaps best done on the mailing list
  • more discussion on this results in a proposal to support both
  • Bob First Motion: Setup a Donate to Builds process, where donations go directly to Trevor. Trevor would supply the paypal account and reporting to us on a regular basis. Seconded by Jason. Passed (Bob, Jason, Tom, Haris, Kenneth, Andy, Paul)
  • Bob Second Motion: Setup Donations through OSGeo similar to OpenLayers and GDAL. Seconded by Paul. Passed (Paul, Bob, Andy, Tom, Kenneth, Jason, Haris).

MGOS and Fusion release schedule

  • MGOS 2.1 beta was supposed to be released in Oct by failed due to lack of builds
  • Jason has been working on an installer but its not done yet there are a couple of holes for IIS and registering FDO providers
  • basically a lack of resources
  • Fusion 2.0 beta towards the end of January
  • general discussion on IIS installer stuff that I didn't understand ;)
  • agreed on trying to release an MGOS 2.1/Fusion 2.0 beta by end Jan
