Hi Simon,

thanks for asking.

As you may have been made aware the Board has been very busy discussing
many topics and working to propose many new developments, like item 4,
that I'm sure will make the community very happy.

All items will be the subject to a public discussion so you are very
welcome to participate.

Hi Florian,

Item 4 on the agenda is a significant change to past decisions on the
subject by the Board. Is there any background information such as a
paper describing the rationale and impact of the change please?

    with TDF and LibreOffice branding:
         - docker images
         - ownCloud connector (from which we have already got
    of acceptance) for LOOL
         - once that is in place I will ask NextCloud for the
    opportunity to
    do the same
         - Univention marketplace packages for LOOL
         - all packages and connectors will be maintained and updated
    on a
    monthly basis unless urgent patches/bug fixes are required sooner

    that may impede the execution of this plan are identified and solved

    back to the BoD, if TDF should use its own Gerrit server for LOOL or
    Collabora's see ticket

    created to
    make it as easy as possible to install docker images/Univention
