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.

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors is in receipt of a budget request and corresponding report from the Conference Planning committee for the Hackathon at ApacheCon Europe 2008; and WHEREAS, the 2-day Hackathon costs for ApacheCon Europe 2008 are 180 Euro + VAT (Super Early Bird), 200 Euro + VAT (Early Bird), and 225 Euro + VAT (Regular and On-site), and 1-day registrations are half this cost; and WHEREAS, the Conference Planning committee has chosen by vote to recommend that the ASF covers some of the cost for committers (and invited contributors) to attend the Hackathon at ApacheCon Europe 2008. With an estimated number of 60-110 Hackathon attendees the requested funds are estimated to be within 8400-15400 Euro; NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the ASF reduces the ApacheCon Europe 2008 Hackathon fee for committers and invited contributors by reimbursing the ApacheCon producer 140 Euro for each 2-day, or 70 Euro for each 1-day Hackathon registration at ApacheCon Europe 2008 by an ASF committer or invited contributor (plus VAT if applicable, offset by a refund request of the VAT). Special order 7A, Sponsorship of ASF Hackathon Europe 2008, was approved by Unanimous Vote.
