  • OSE was good. AdrianMcEwen to circulate the video
  • All week, some new people.
  • Ignite went well.

  • Pledge drives
  • action: HakimCassimally will add "intern" as pledge
  • not done yet
  • action: MartinPrice to contact Fran in Birkenhead to find out about her intern.
  • not sure what's happening with that, we'll drop it off the actions list and if the info comes back then we can run with that.

  • Update on GSOC - JohnMcKerrell
  • We're not eligible as we'd need an open source project to submit

  • Update on membership scheme/general donations - HakimCasimmally

  • What do we gain? Should we move the smaller stuff into the meeting room
