meeting Sunday 13th <at> 18:00 GMT/UTC

Just a reminder to all that there is a meeting tomorrow (Sunday) to
discuss Wikimedia UK. It will be at 18:00 (UTC) on IRC Freenode,
channel #wikimedia-uk. Come one, come all (Gordon has already made his
apologies).

And to JamesF in particular: any advance on the bylaws / documentation?

See you there,
Cormac

6pm is rather early (especially for a UK-only meeting) ... not sure if
I'll be back home by then - apols if I'm not; will check to see if anyone
still online when I do though ...

There's a log of the meeting at:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_UK/November_13th_meeting_on_IRC

Main thing is the replacement of the Bylaws document with a shortened
Memorandum of Association, draft (by JamesF and VampWillow) of which
is at: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_UK/Memorandum_of_Association

On continuing work, Jon (jguk) has volunteered to go over the MoA,
James will be contacting a lawyer to help with advice - any legal
advice or ideas from anyone on possible projects are, as always, much
appreciated.

Cheers,
Cormac

That's good to know - considering this we can maybe have a
brainstorm/update on legal matters first (eg MoA) and then work on the
formal board presentation and even wider picture later on. (?)

Do we want a reporter there though? Will Danny be there too (great, if
so)? (Danny - apologies if I gave you false info on weather here
today, although we all know the perennial topic here is notoriously
fickle.)

I don't think we'd be doing anything very controversial or private, just
discussing some rather tedious matters I suppose.  But yes, we might not
want her there.  And she might not want to be there, it'll presumably be
quite dull for her, and if she wants to interview community members
about the sorts of things that the press does find interesting, it would
disrupt us from the actual work at hand.

:-)  No, Danny won't be on that trip.

Indeed. Very dull...

I was considering the following plan.

1) Part 1 - 12 noon to 2pm - lunch, interviews, chat, beer...

2) Part 2 - 2pm to 6pm - formal session (journalists excluded?)

There may be a part 3, but recall that The Royal Oak will close at 6pm.

If we have two parts as above, then Jimbo and the Journo can do the 
interview either in the first part (in the meeting room) or the 
second part (downstairs in the pub).

Part 1 is informal - lunch, beer, chat.

Part 2 is formal business. Anybody can join in. The business of the 
meeting is to set up the Charity.

Part 3 - Suggest we go to "The George". This is an historic pub,
