This was extracted (@ 2024-01-04 18:10) from a list of minutes
which have been approved by the Board.
Please Note The Board typically approves the minutes of the previous meeting at the beginning of every Board meeting; therefore, the list below does not normally contain details from the minutes of the most recent Board meeting.
WARNING: these pages may omit some original contents of the minutes.
Meeting times vary, the exact schedule is available to ASF Members and Officers, search for "calendar" in the Foundation's private index page (svn:foundation/private-index.html).
Desired action: establishment of a legal committee/project which frequently reports to the board. * Intalio agreement for OpenORB * CLA amendment from U of Memphis * J2EE SATCK agreements? * Apache trademarks? * response to JBoss letter received October 31, 2003 * D&O Insurance? * Response to EMC letter dated August 24, 2004 * Converting currently documents (CLA, CCLA) to PDF format Recommended set of actions arrived at by Robyn Wagner, Greg Stein, and Brian Behlendorf: * Invite Robyn to board@ (and possibly board-private@) Non-privileged communication amongst ASF members. * Rename legal@ to legal-internal@, limiting membership to Board and Robyn only, for attorney-client privilege. Potentially invite other trusted legal advisors. * Encourage the use of firstname.lastname@example.org for discussions related to legal issues that do not require special privilege or limitation to ASF members. Turn off licensing@, move discussion to community@. * Create a shell account for Robyn, with apmember group access, and access to all CVS and SVN repositories. Give her instructions on access and time to get acquainted with history. * Status and work items to be managed via the foundation/legal/STATUS file rather than an issue tracker or other means. The fact that our bias is to head towards maximal internal transparancy to ASF members was expressed, and the above is intended to balance that with the legal concept of attorney/ client privilege. Robyn will also be at ApacheCon. This discussion item was tabled, but will be discussed on the mailing list.
