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.
WHEREAS, Project Management Committees (PMCs) within The Apache Software Foundation are required to conduct their normal business on public mailing lists for their project; and WHEREAS, the Foundation provides each PMC with a private list called "pmc" for sensitive discussions for which a public discussion is prevented by statute or contractual restraints on the Foundation; and WHEREAS, mailing list names are standardized to make it easier for project oversight and administration; and WHEREAS, volunteers on Foundation projects frequently make the mistake of misdirecting public discussion to the "pmc" lists because the name implies a group of people rather than a type of discussion. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Infrastructure Committee be and hereby is directed to rename all "pmc" lists to private@project and to use the name "private" for all such future lists; and let it further be RESOLVED, that all Project Management Committees within The Apache Software Foundation shall restrict their communication on private mailing lists to issues that cannot be discussed in public, such as discussion of pre-disclosure security problems, pre-agreement discussions with third parties that require confidentiality, discussion of nominees for project or Foundation membership, and personal conflicts among project personnel. Special Order 6B, Rename pmc lists to private, was Approved by Unanimous Consent.
