Minutes of the "Board" meeting 2008 February 29 at 9 pm - 10:30 pm MET.

Executive Summary

The Board met via Skype chat on 29th of February 2008.

Board cleaned up decisions made via email by the board for the period of June 2007 up to February 2008.

Priority has been given to get CAcert services audited: Audit project (funded by NLnet by 36.ooo Euro), Audit Project work done by Ian Grigg, audit was stalled on completion of servers move to the Netherlands, which should be solved by technical arrangements via the Cachaca Project lead by Evaldo Gardenali in cooperation with Philipp G├╝hring.

Policy documents have been reviewed by the Board. If needed for urgent reasons and filling gaps Board should help on decisions taken for the policies. Organisation Assurences need to be bootstrapped by using approval decisions taken by the Board and advised by CAcert local full Assurers.

Greg Rose resigned from the board for personal reasons. Teus Hagen is new president.

Thomas Widhalm is accepted to join the Association.
