The Board of Directors at time of the call consists of 7 seat holders
without deputies. In order to be quorate, the call needs to have 1/2 of

the foundations articles, or other requirements regarding form and
invitation, time limits, and for the topics discussed in this meeting.

The call is quorate.

From now on, a quorum can be reached with a simple majority of 3 votes.

The meeting commences at 15:05 UTC. It was held partly in public and
partly in private as the board saw a need for confidentiality during
discussions. The results are now being made public in accordance with
our statutes.

1. LibOCon status update (Sophie)
The program is almost set now, just small arrangements to do, we should
have a keynote from Jeremy Allison, Matthias Stürmer is talking to him
about that. The local team is used to organize events, so they are
handling things really well :)
Registrations are going on, today we have 80 registered.

2. LibOCon 2015

mid august.
