So you're saying there is no written background context for this proposal.
Has it been discussed by the Board previously? Coming into the discussion
cold is unlikely to be good.

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?

Dear community,

private part (- no topics in the private part so far -)

For time zone conversion, see e.g.

as we gain good experience last time after improvements of the TDF
instance from the team, if possible use Chrome browser and do not use
video and until not speaking up please mute.


Public Part

1. Q&A: Answering Questions from the community (All, max. 10 minutes)

    Rationale: Provide an opportunity for the community to ask questions
to the new board and about TDF.

2. Discuss: Ecosystem & Sustainability (Michael, All 15min)

    Rationale: Discussion, relevance and dependencies for TDF

3. Discuss: Quick check of fitting prerequisites and procedure of the
vote for the next agenda item (Lothar, Board members, All 5 minutes)

    Rationale: Clarifying about voting of the next agenda item

4. Voting on proposal of Paolo:  (Paolo, Board members 15 minutes)

    Voting proposal via Mail from Paolo Vecchi at 16.05., 13.15 UTC+2:

    Enable the infrastructure team to deliver the following packages
with TDF and LibreOffice branding:
     - docker images
     - ownCloud connector (from which we have already got confirmation
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
     - the latest stable version of LOOL code will be used to build the
     - the infrastructure oversight team will ensure that all issues
that may impede the execution of this plan are identified and solved
     - the infrastructure oversight team should evaluate, and report
back to the BoD, if TDF should use its own Gerrit server for LOOL or
Collabora's see ticket
     - LibreOffice branded documentation/help files should be created to
make it as easy as possible to install docker images/Univention packages
     - TDF's LOOL packages will be free and supported only by the
community. No paid/support options will be made available by TDF
     - In the download page it will be made clear that if LOOL is used
in enterprise environment support options are available through the
members of TDF's ecosystem
   At a later stage eventual limitations in terms of concurrent
users/documents will be discussed.

   Rationale: explanation of voting item(s), getting a valid voting
result on Paolos proposal as described above

5. Discuss: Status of redmine tickets of the board (Thorsten, All 10min)

    Rationale: Clarifying which tickets/list, what todos, who is caring,
until when
