Meeting Report for 3/3/2010


For the last official meeting of this instantiation of the Squeak Oversight Board everyone was present: Jecel Mattos de Assumpção Jr, Ken Causey, Bert Freudenberg, Craig Latta, Andreas Raab, Randal Schwartz, and Igor Stasenko.

First we would like to remind everyone that the 2010 election for the Squeak Oversight Board is coming up very soon.  For more information see

Recently we announced an anticipated release date for the MIT/Apache licensed Squeak 4.0.  The word is getting out as evidenced by the fact that this site received 5-10 times the usual amount of traffic soon after that announcement was posted.  Ronald Spengler is kindly leading the effort to finalize the packaging of Squeak 4.0 and you should be watching squeak-dev for pre-release versions and related news.

Relatedly  we continue to work with the Software Freedom Conservancy to finalize issues related to our joining this organization.  We are hopeful of completing this not long after Squeak 4.0 is released as this release is essential to the process.

Our next meeting is scheduled for 3/24/2010.  Note that this is a week later than our usual meeting date.  The plan is to have a special meeting with all current and newly elected SOB members to get the new board up to pace quickly.  We will be contacting candidates soon to clarify the plan.

  1. Casey Ransberger Says:

    It’s been pointed out that I (the artist formerly known as Ronald Spengler) was mentioned in this post. After this was posted, I came out about the fact that Ronald Spengler was a pseudonym, and that my real name is Casey Ransberger. It was a scary economy when I decided to go with a pseudonym, but I’m not afraid anymore, and I’ve decided to use my real name going forward. I’m really sorry about the confusion that this has caused!
