1 Preliminaries

1.1 Opening

Meeting chaired by Piers.

Minutes from last meeting accepted by m20120129.1.

Permission Stocktaking - patch ready, waiting for review.

Affiliates: No progress with Amazon, another affiliate programme is being prepared (agenda item 2.2).

Logo Challenge: Deferred by software team.

2 Business

2.1 Data protection

Semi-short private discussion on #board-meeting-private (#board-private is supposed to be used for this purpose, however that channel is registered and no Board member has channel operator privileges to ensure privacy.).

Item postponed to a private board meeting to be arranged ASAP.

2.2 Merchandising: Crypto Tokens

At FOSDEM, offered us to link to a special site, 100 hardware RSA USB dongles would be sold with ~5€ going to CAcert on each one. CAcert-branding the stick is possible, too.

Recognized by Board as a nice idea, however linking to the product could be understood as CAcert officially endorsing it. More discussion on this point is needed with motion on the next meeting - Michael will post details to board list.

3 Closing

Next meeting: Friday, March 2nd 2012, 20:00 UTC

Meeting closed by chair.
