IRC Meeting

Howdy fellow GNOMErs!

I’d like to invite you all to join us once again for another GNOME Foundation IRC Meeting!

When: Wednesday, June 1st, from 14:00 to 15:00 UTC (your local time)
Where: irc.gnome.org, #foundation

Foundation IRC meetings are just that, meetings held on #foundation in irc.gimp.org to discuss current matters related to the GNOME Foundation. Any GNOME Foundation member or non member are welcome. As long as you contribute positively to the discussion you are welcome.

The meeting is moderated by Board members that are present, and they will guide the discussion through all the Agenda topics. Everyone can comment and speak at any time, just remember to be respectful and concise so it’s easy for everyone to follow the discussion.

Tthis is a great opportunity to discuss the topics you care about, or to get more information from the Board if you think we’re not communicating enough on some topics ;-) The agenda of the meeting is really up to you!

So please add the agenda items you’d like to discuss to http://live.gnome.org/FoundationBoard/MembersAgenda

Your topics will automatically appear on the meeting page:
http://live.gnome.org/FoundationBoard/MeetingAgenda

For reference, the minutes of the last meeting are available at:

Thanks,

Og Maciel, on behalf of the GNOME Board of Directors

New host for the EU events boxen

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

In July 2005, Murray Cumming was on the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors and brought up the idea of an events box that would travel around Europe. At first, Murray took it upon himself to host the box personally, then through Openismus where Ekaterina Gerasimova helped out with the administration. But with the recent loss (and more recent recovery) of the events box, and its “replacement”, we now have two EU events boxes.

Murray felt that it was time to pass on the responsibility of hosting the box to another party, having hosted the box for more than 5 years in Berlin, Germany.

The GNOME Foundation is happy to say that Collabora, based in Cambridge, England, will be handling the box from then on.

If you’re participating in an event for which the GNOME events boxes could be useful, please get in touch with Dorée at Collabora. Full instructions are available on the website.

Many thanks to Openismus, and Murray and Ekaterina in particular, for hosting the events box, and many thanks to Collabora, Robert McQueen and Dorée Carrier for their help in hosting them now.
