6 Working commitees

  • from the previous ordinary meeting
Gregory: As a first step I have created mailing lists.
Greg: I would prefer a real live meeting - as time is tight up front to the GA in Lodz, an online startup meeting would be preferable.
Upcoming questions concerning NGO participation et al should be handled by the INGOR committee.
The "left over" political
Sample "Regulation" for the committees should be provided
Proposal for a day or two to meet (an hour at the most for each committee) in Mumble
a real-live meeting of all committees on Friday in Lodz (room availability has to be confirmed)
27./28.06.2015 for startup meeting - time slots:

Initial agenda:

  • committee scope and vision
  • work structure
  • current issues
  • real live meeting in Lodz
  • aob

The statutes workshop is not a stating committee, but a good practice that we have established to give an opportunity to discuss the submitted SAP

Thomas will send out the invitation by tonight including the mailing list invite.

7 Currents

  • From the previous ordinary meeting
Thomas gives an overview about the current rumours and deliberatly spreaded lies about PPI.
Proposal by Bastian: article in PT about the truth, seconded by Gregory and Thomas
Gregory: We do not need PT if it focused on reporting the negative - we need a news service to focus on reporting the positive news about the pirates and this includes PPI, the negative reporting will be out there from our opositon soon enough. I would like to see a public discussion about the direction of PT, and if it is not going to change, we all need to cut the lines towards the PT and create a new one.
Bastian will collect and do it.
