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.
This is due to changes in the layout of the source minutes over the years. Fixes are being worked on.

    Comments: The project is progressing well. This month, one of the
    original mentors, Hitesh Shah, resigned due to other commitments. With
    three remaining mentors, we currently see no need to add a new one but will
    review as necessary in the future.
