The Minutes from last meeting (2018011220) where accepted with motion m20180126.1
Karl-Heinz agreed to make the Minutes for this meeting.
As there was no time-limit given, there was no timekeeper needed.
Because committee was lack of members Etienne and Peter managed to get three Australian members Amos Shapira, Peter Moulding and Peter Yuill to join this meeting and opt for board or public officer (PO).
All three of them gave a short presentation of themselves. After that they were asked about known Conflict of Interests. Which all of them negated.
Amos Shapira mentioned: AWS [where I work] issues certificates for free to its users as far as I know. I don't handle this in my work.
Peter Yuill is already member of CAcert INC., so only Amos Shapira and Peter Moulding had to be accepted as new members. This was done with m20180126.2. After that they were welcomed as new members.
Next was to accept Peter Moulding as member of board (done with m20180126.3) and who accepted to be at board.
After a short discussion about the number of board members Peter Yuill was invited to also join the committee, as he agreed, he was accepted with m20180126.4 and welcomed.
With m20180126.5 Amos Shapira then was accepted as PO and he accepted the election.
About the problem with the new OS Karl-Heinz gave a short oversight
- The source code was adapted; all statements for the MySQL-engine were replaced by their corresponding statements for the mysqli-engine.
- As we lost our Test-Server mid last year without warning or being informed in advance we have to wait until a new test-server with the current version of our software can be established, to start testing.
To make the problem worse, Dirk is the only left software-developer with the respective rights to do software-changes look here
Peter M. and Peter Y. applied to help and were pointed to the mailing-lists especially to email@example.com
To the problem with Bug 1417 'unable to create certificate' Karl-Heinz reported this couldn't be solved.
- after asking the mailing-lists 'support-team' and 'cacert-support' there was no satisfying answer. The only given answer couldn't be verified until now.
On behalf of running out of money there was a discussion to change the server into cloud to save money. But as we first have to getting things back on a running footing first, we ended up with the request of collecting all proposals until next meeting. Proposals should be mailed not only to firstname.lastname@example.org but also to email@example.com
As there were no further questions, the next meeting was scheduled on 2018-03-01-20 UTC.
No further business, the chair closed the meeting at 22:21 UTC
