19 October, 2006
Craig Latta posted the notes of the Squeak Foundation Board meeting that occured on October 4th. The Squeak Foundation Board meets twice a month via IM on the first and third wednesday, and Craig has been appointed to speak for the board.
During yesterday’s meeting the following items were discussed:
- Squeak License: Yoshiki Ohshima mentioned that Viewpoints plans to contact a lawyer, produce a template of the new Apache-style license agreement that OLPC will use, work with the board to complete the Squeak contributor list, and act as keepers of the license agreement.
- Squeak 3.10: The board decided to appoint a release team for Squeak 3.10 development. The team will consist of three persons who will act mainly as integrators and avoid direct development. They can still contribute to the development effort, but such contributions will be outside the scope of the release team’s mission. They will also act as coordinators in order to solve possible conflicting contributions.
- Georgia Tech’s Squeak wiki: since Georgia Tech plans the retirement of the current swiki server, the Squeak wiki contents will have to be migrated to a community managed server. The board discussed possible line of actions.
The board welcomes suggestions on possible agenda items for their meetings.
