3.6 - PP-Mauritius
Redmine task #118 due date 2012-03-13
Report by Thomas: contact established, but nothing to report yet
3.7 - PP-Leaders list
Redmine task #119 due date 2012-03-13
From Redmine: Rename pp-leaders to pp-leaders.announcements Pat: There has been already again a lot of discussion, instead of announcements. For now I also introduced a "spam" filter which sets all messages with ^Subject: Re:$ or ^Subject: RE:$ on moderation. Another usability safeguard that has been suggested is renaming the list to pp-leaders.announcements
Report by Pat: nothing done yet (heavily involvement in other pirate issues :-/ ), but not really a lot of work
4 - Review of decisions made at the previous Meeting of the Board
Thomas: Are there any issues we have to reconsider?
(seems to be not the case)
5 - PPI GA 2012
Lola: We are preparing it, and set up the registration form, thus we could send out the public invitation. We also set the registration fee. We already recieved some complaints that the registration would be too high, so expect that we have to look for sponsors in the board. I'm right now looking for a picture for the frontpage. There's not much else to report.
6 - PPI Membership applications
Thomas: AFAIK we recieved some applications for membership?
Lola: I will send you the link. http://int.piratenpartei.de/PPI_Conference_2012/applicants
Thomas: Currently there's PP of Greece, Croatia, Florida (observer), Lower Saxony (observer)

7 - Changing Redmine privacy settings
Proposed by Lola: What do you think of making Redmine public?
- Pat: I'm against having not any secret place; there were some instances were it was critical that data was stored in a secret place. I'm not against having it open by default.
- Thomas: good idea, a little change would be necessary so that right of privacy can be established (additional button) which allows that certain tasks can't be seen from outside. Would you agree to that compromise, Lola?
- Lola: Yes, that would be okay for me.
- Thomas: If there are any questions about the plugin, please email me, Pat.
- Pat: I think it would be better if it could be dispatched to someone else; I'm really almost out of time atm.
REDMINE 2 weeks, Thomas
8 - Situation with PP of Tunisia
Thomas: There seem to be 2 pirate parties established in Tunisia. As we learned from Twitter there is one registered since yesterday, but I don't know which one. I hope it's not the "resistance group", as I have a problem with that one. The other one has anyway more members and is more open to the public. They devised an online tool for decididing anything in the future. They will also decide on a structure, so that we don't have to talk to several persons.

- Thomas: Fabio is participating the GA and I believe he is willing to speak there. I will phone him.
- Lola: I would prefer an email with a confirmation. I can't put it into the agenda else.
- Thomas: I will contact him by email as well.
- Lola: 14:00 would be prefered for him as speaker.
- Thomas: That's what I will do.
- Pat: I assume you saw the note about the PPI paper.
- Lola: We may could use it for the PPI GA preparation. Please send some to Georg Sinn whom I can meetup in LU next weekend.
