Meeting Report for 2/3/2010


Once again everyone was present and accounted for today: Jecel Mattos de Assumpção Jr, Ken Causey, Bert Freudenberg, Craig Latta, Andreas Raab, Randal Schwartz, and Igor Stasenko.

While we are reviewing other issues are focus right now is primarily on completing the process involved in releasing Squeak 4.0 and joining the Software Freedom Conservancy.  We are still checking facts and looking for possible problems but the chances look good for an imminent (small number of weeks) release.  One aspect of that is actually taking care of the packaging of 4.0 and updating places where the licensing of Squeak is referenced.  Expect a post on squeak-dev soon to discuss this issue and hammer out the details.

We spent much of the rest of the meeting discussing the election process.  Part of our agreement with the SFC specifies how the ‘governing committee’ (AKA Squeak Oversight Board) is formed.  After the retirement of the SqueakPeople website was which was an integral part of forming the voters list for the Oversight Board election the process has temporarily become somewhat informal.  After discussing this in some detail we realized that trying to formalize things a bit more this year would likely just disrupt the upcoming election and so we ultimately decided to set this issue aside for now.  After the election the new Oversight Board and the Election Team should work on this issue with the assistance of the entire community.

Thanks to Chris Cunnington with assistance from others on squeak-dev instructions on how to install Seaside on Squeak were placed on the Squeak website and linked to from the Seaside website.  As a community we fully intend to ensure that Seaside continues to run on Squeak.

Our next meeting is scheduled for 2/17/2010.
