Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

The ALOIS project team wrote an private e-mail to its mentors shortly after
the last report. They have told us that due to personal reasons they cannot
keep this project alive and there will be no project activity in near
future. We have agreed to wait until the June 2011 comes up. So far there is
no change in project activity or interest, no e-mails and even no more
private messages. After this report the Incubator-PMC needs to discuss about
retiring this podling. (Christian Grobmeier)

In addition to Christian's report, I'd like to mention that we didn't find
any interest in the project outside of our small group, although we did
quite a lot requests off list. If there would be someone to take over the
project, we would be happy to give a helping hand at the start. (Urs Lerch)
