2 Business

2.1 Oophaga closing down

Dirk took part at the secure-u board meeting. Most questions are about the contracts and/or sponsors. Oophaga and secure-u should figure out the details directly without intervention of CAcert. Only the final decisions have to be agreed. Secure-u and Oophaga are fully capable of transferring the access engineers. Stating the boards opinion is enough right now, a motion can be done when we need to actually switch the contract partner.

Motion that Dirk Astrath is appointed to represent the point of cacert in the discussions of transferring Oophaga to secure-u!. m20130428.2

2.2 Use of micropayment services for funding

The software team takes care that privacy is maintained. Motion to add micropayment buttons to non-critical infrastructure services. m20130428.3

2.3 OFT Report and Bank Account

Michael asked Kevin about a status report some days ago but no answer so far.

2.4 Sponsoring for new Infrastructure Server

We've received a 1000 Euro funding from Thomas Krenn by hardware. We tend to the better server of about 1500 Euro. From the missing 500 Euro about 400 Euro can be funded by secure-u, the remainder by CAcert. More discussion is transferred to the mailing list.

Since Dirk and Tomas had to leave, everything else was deferred to the next meeting.
