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).
Various input, not all consistent or coherent: * great job, need a solaris zone for new services * we need to do a better job organizing volunteers * more use of sandbox/asylum * infra role mixes policy vs resources * dim's idea of using yahoo boxes for sandboxes * a smaller number of services, well supported is better than a large number of services spottily supported * unpaid volunteers without a track record are presumed to being prone to disappear. Products like MoinMoin, JIRA and others tend to be used beyond expectations, so sandboxes don't solve the problem. Sandbox takes a lot of time. More machines can be ordered, but people can't be. * need and don't have an infrastructure roadmap * we need a way to "grow" new volunteers * happy with three 9's. hiring people makes us lose volunteers * self fulfilling prophesy: pushing away volunteers, and using that to justify the need to hire * need two realms, one at 3 nines, another at a higher level * need a volunteer to help coordinate
