Summary of traffic on FAmSCo mailing list

Neville A. Cross informed [1] about being unable due to working on the arrangements for the LibreBus event.

Igor Pires Soares called for discussion [2] around the proposal for a FAD at the 12th Free Software International Forum for which there already exists a plan and budget estimate [3] Neville A. Cross wondered [4] if the Budget discussion was a FAmSCo or, a Community Architecture team issue. Igor Pires Soares mentioned [5] a prior mail to Max Spevack which was awaiting a response and updated that the tasks with the local team are now completed. Pierros Papadeas indicated [6] that it was justifiable to allocate a budget of ~1000 USD for a FAD and suggested the creation of a wiki page. Igor Pires Soares followed up [7] with details about the tickets on the trac [8] [9] And, further that the FAmSCo meeting [10] approved to fund lodging for those paying airfare and, lodging+airfare for those requests who live near the city of the event hosting.

Igor Pires Soares informed [11] about the draft of the FAmSCo April report was available on the wiki [12] for editing.

Gerard Braad notified [13] about the discussion around resignation [14] of Larry Cafiero from The Fedora Project and indicated that roles and responsibilities within the FAmSCo needed to be re-assigned. Neville A. Cross indicated [15] about a possible set of steps including moving a proposal to remove Rahul Sundaram and vote on that.

Neville A. Cross informed [16] about the state of readiness of the FAmSCo survey built using the Lime Survey service [17] which now needs to be activated and sent to participants. Gerard Braad corrected [18] a few typographical errors in the document and signed it off. Neville A. Cross also provided information [19] [20] around the charges/expenses involved for running the survey.

Gerard Braad responded [21] to Buddhika Kurera's comments on the FAmSCo meeting minutes of 2011-05-14
