3.1 - Short report of the board members

Members of the board shall give a short summary (one minute at maximum) of  what happened since the last board meeting or  their last report. If something needs more attention, it should be  discussed in separate  points.

  • Gregory: I have assisted in the launch of the PirateTimes newsservice, have installed piwik website tracking under had worked further on the image bank project and have fixed finaly the redmine problems, so it is sending and recieving mails now nicely. Also installed a plugin that should send out notifications close to tasks due date. Also did some anti-spam work in the wiki (deleted about 130 spam accounts). Had a first contact with pirates from Nicaragua. 
  • Lola: Excused from meeting
  • Travis: Excused from meeting
  • Ed: I've been chasing the bank to no avail, which I'll talk about more fully on point 3.2.9.  I have been working on the manifesto for PPUK's Manchester by-election.
  • Denis: Gefion and I had the first press team meeting which was a meeting between us and one team member at the end. We absolutely need more staff and are going to bug the member parties again. I also called WIPO to ask whether we can already attend their next assembly as soon as they accepted our application. Negative.
  • Jelena: No report recieved
  • Nuno: I've been contacted by the Pirate Party of Mexico for help on setting up a LQFB for them, I also started contacting other Parties that are not members or applicants in order to have them interested on the LQFB issue. Updated the system to the lastest frontend release. Created a poll of sorts on LQFB policies for several issues ( since the subject caused long heated debates on the international mailing lists, and of course participated in the heated debates trying to bring some logic and peace to them, seems to have worked a bit.
