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.
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).
WHEREAS, the Board of Directors desires to increase clarity around correct handling of releases, and WHEREAS, the Infrastructure project needs Board approval to change its distribution policy, and WHEREAS, the Infrastructure distribution policy be re-worded to refer to all platforms and not just those managed by the Apache Infrastructure project. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Infrastructure distribution policy be modified, and this change be adopted. Article I - Background Top-Level Projects are increasing using other distributions platforms to distribute releases to their users, and there is some confusion on how ASF policy applies to these platforms. There have been ongoing conversations on the Infrastructure and board lists about this and changes to distribution policy proposed. The policy change has previously had lazy consensus of the board. The Infrastructure project has requested this change via a board resolution as it is unsure it can make this change with only lazy consensus. Special Order 7F, Change Infrastructure distribution policy to refer to all platforms, was tabled.
