2 Business

2.1 1.Appoint Alex Robertson and Eva Stöwe to full arbitrators (finish training status)

There was much heated discussion on this as to who was responsible and Alex offered his resignation as DRO as a "vote of confidence". It was informally decided that a arb-team meeting was to be held within four weeks and a formal decision was made to reject Alex's offered resignation

2.2 Update subcommittee

There has been no change and we are still short of AU members. It was suggested that this item be dropped from the agenda, but another view was to leave it on as at least it showed we were aware of the situation - the latter view was accepted

2.3 Move CAcert Inc. to another country

2.4 Press release about

Whilst this was submitted to pr@c.o and copied to the board private list, nothing appeared to have been done. No action appeared to have come from PRO and Eva complained that she always got no reply or was told to do it herself. Michael asked whether the PR works right now? at which the discussion "fizzled out"

2.5 Run an OpenPGP keyserver Board endorsed the installation of a public PGP key server.

3 Questions

Jürgen asked whether there could be any support for banners for a couple of exhibitions in Austria. Micheal explained there was no available funds but that he could send the banner from another show. Jürgen said he'd see if he could get some local sponsorship.
