Next Foundation IRC meeting - Wednesday, September 12, 2012

hi all;

it's been a while since the last IRC meeting; the attendance in the
past hasn't been stellar, but the Board obviously values the feedback
from the Foundation members, and as we've seen at the AGM, there are
various things that warrant high bandwidth discussion - for instance,
the role and scope of the Release Team.

let's try and bring back the IRC meetings, then. :-)

in the past, the meeting was held on Wednesday at 16:00 UTC, but we
can be flexible about that.

if nobody objects to the date, let's pick Wednesday September 12, 2012.

ciao,
 Emmanuele.

Boston Summit 2012

Hi,

At GUADEC, it was announced that the Boston Summit 2012 is on!  More
information is available here:

https://live.gnome.org/Boston2012

Please do fill in the attendance list so we can somewhat accurately
gauge required refreshment quantity, etc.

There's a lot of topics to discuss, and I hope we can continue some of
the momentum from the awesome GUADEC that just finished!

Call for GUADEC 2013 proposals - Deadline extended

Hello Foundation Members.

During the last week of June we announced the call for GUADEC 2013 
proposals [1]. We have received feedback from the community that more 
time is needed. Therefore, in order to ensure we have a great GUADEC 
2013, we are extending the deadline for completed proposals.

Because it has been the Board's experience that face-to-face meetings 
are a valuable part of the proposal evaluation process, we would 
strongly encourage all parties who plan to submit a proposal to meet 
with the Board at GUADEC to present their tentative plans. However, if 
meeting face-to-face is not possible, we will work with you to arrange 
an alternative meeting.

The new deadlines are as follows:

* July 20th: Declaration of intent to propose hosting GUADEC 2013 sent
  to board-list <at> gnome.org. In this declaration, please include a 
  statement of your availability to meet with the Board during GUADEC
  2012.

* September 22nd: Formal, complete proposals for hosting GUADEC 2013
  sent to board-list <at> gnome.org.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please let us know either on 
foundation-list <at> gnome.org or board-list <at> gnome.org.

--joanie, on behalf of the Foundation Board
