Logfile from meeting 2018-06-21


Minutes will be written once the meeting is finished, with tasks listed in action items and Actions of this document.

Present: President, secretary, treasurer

Apologies: Peter, Peter, Peter, Ross


Guests: Nemunaire, Dops, AlainVaugham


At 20:15 UTC the president took chair and opened the meeting.

The president notes, that all members of both, Inc. and community are always welcome to join the committee meetings as guests.

The trasurer is sure that he could find some prospective arbitrators in France.

<Etienne> I move to accept the minutes from 24 05 2018. The minutes are accepted with one aye and two abstentions (one was absent, the other the minute taker).


Peter N had a phone call with the public officer and helped him to fill in the form. Now, he add his address and had or will send it. The secretary is now waiting for the confirmation.

In Île-de-France is a group of five active people willing to be more active at CAcert (the so called Paris group). This group is interested in Software Development. The president will them put in direct contact with the software team lead. Until then, the treasurer (as member of the Paris' group will ask for curriculum of Paris members and send them to the president privately. So, he will be able to have a view of competencies and wishes.

Furthermore, the president ask, if we can increase the priority of CAcert For Dummies, that is something that might help us with "Public Relations" and, perhaps, bring people back to CAcert.

Bug 1260: There was a problem with the Test Manager machine ( software ). GuKKDevel found out, that version of source code dont match, He is searching. He need the copy of the original system and of the test system. Private copies don't help

Bug 1417: Peter M/N (?) thought about an addon for all browser to create. A browser plug in would be independent of operating systesms. Unfortunately, none of Paris group has experience with browser plug-ins. It is suggested to ask the other 349 995 community members to find an add on developper. It is remembered that furthermore, we could earn money with this addon:

Bug 1432 is delayed as some coding for CRLs hade to be done.

We have a lot of bugs that nobody cares about. Maybe someone could take a look with the eye of a professional there. Are there any that are essential? Some are probably already obsolete. The president is sure that one or two of the Paris group could help with that, as long as they didn't need to be "cleared" or approved formally. Everyone can pick up a bug, and communicate it at, the list for developers. It is important to communicate on that list. Even if someone is interested in further/long term developments, picking up one or two bugs is a good point to start.

Following GuKKDevel, not the bug list is the problem: at the moment to clear the asynchronoty of the gits; find testers; find reviewers and get information.

The secretary pointed out that the software tean lead reads most e-mails, but does not answer allways. On the other hand, GuKKDevel is a good contact person, as he know a lot too.

The treasurer has 1,452 € in Paypal. The former treasurer failed to send the 2017 membership fee bills trough the ERP (one of the reasons why he resigned). So, we will have some more income this year: membership fees for 2017 and 2018. Gero as pre previous treasurer and Michael as past-past-past-past treasurer could give advices to the treasurer.

Question Time

No questions are asked.
