3.2 - PP of the Week (proposed by Jerry)
- This week's PP of the week will be Germany: http://www.pp-international.net/pirate_party_of_the_week-Germany Questions have been sent out to PP-Kazakhstan, PP-Italy and PP-Luxembourg. We are still waiting for answers from PP-DK, PP-BR (they have wrote us back, but will not answer our Questions at the moment) and PP-Bulgaria.
For the preparation of one of the next "PP of the week", a mail about PP Italy with the addresses of the board of PP Italy was sent to the Board of PP Int. by Joachim.
4 - AGENDA
4.1 - Conference refunds (proposed by Jerry)
- Nicco should have more information on who still hasn't been paid the refund.
- We should get more information from Nicco. Jerry will ask him for a document with the details if he cannot make it to the meetings.
4.2 - Webspace and domain (proposed by Jerry)
- We need the login information to be able to migrate the website to a new server. Gregory and Steffen should make a proposal on this matter. There is also the proposal to register an .org domain for PPI where we would setup the new website and the sub-domain for the calendar, press releases and other projects.
- Gregory has the login information.
- Steffen has made an offer to rent a (managed) v-server and make it available to PPI.
- We will publish a short RFQ on the int gerneral mailing list. (Gregory will do this)
- Some offers have been collected, some are still missing. Next meeting we will decide, if no quorum we will decide via e-mail.
4.3 - Calendar (proposed by Jerry)
- Steffen set up a test calendar for PPI: http://steffen-ortmann.de/calendar1/month.php We should use this calendar as a means to collect all important events for Pirates.
- The system can be adjusted ot our needs, no need and quicker than programm a whole new system. Best would be to host in on the PPI webspace, but Steffen could host it under a sub-domain.
- We will test the system until next week.
